If you’ve never heard of PQQ before, you’re not alone.
This vitamin is relatively new, discovered by Japanese scientists in 2003. It is the first new vitamin since 1948!
What’s even more exciting is what PQQ can do.
New research suggests that it can support healthy aging.* Have we discovered the natural “fountain of youth?”
Short for pyrroloquinoline quinone, PQQ is a molecule that acts as an antioxidant in the body.* PQQ has a unique effect on the cell’s mitochondria, the part of the cell that’s responsible for creating energy.*
As we age, mitochondria can become damaged, and their numbers decline. This leads to diminished function. When we get older, we may need extra support for cognitive health, heart health, a healthy inflammation response, energy levels, and weight management.
PQQ has been shown in human clinical research to improve short-term memory and support more restful sleep.* It may also activate immune response.*
The body naturally produces PPQ, and it’s been identified in soil, breastmilk, and even ancient stardust! It is likely a natural building block for cell health among the entire plant and animal kingdom.
Most fruits and vegetables contain some level of PQQ, with the highest concentrations being found in the following:
Why Choose Quality of Life’s VitaPQQ-SR?
One of the problems prevalent with many vitamins is that they move through the body quickly. This can cause them to exit your system before you can absorb the nutrients and get the full benefit.
The “SR” in VitaPQQ-SR stands for “sustained release.” This property distinguishes it from other versions for PQQ in three ways:
1. The sustained release means that PQQ stays in your body for longer periods, beyond eight hours.
2. Your body can show higher levels of PQQ over time.
3. Because VitaPQQ-SR stays in the bloodstream longer, it allows for higher absorption rates, making it one of the most bioavailable forms of PQQ on the market.
How PQQ Promotes Healthy Aging
There are a lot of things that can damage cells, and when we get older, oxidative stress is one of the key culprits. A molecule with antioxidant properties, like PQQ, can keep cells healthy in every part of the body.* This includes the brain and the skin).*
