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 slow down and even reverse the aging process. 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 witness the results of this through cognitive decline, heart disease, inflammation, fatigue, and weight gain.
PQQ has been linked to a variety of benefits, including improved memory, better immunity, more restful sleep, and even weight loss. Results vary based on the individual, but new science is being discovered regularly, supporting the benefits of PQQ.
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:
How PQQ Can Aid in Weight Loss
We tend to think of an expanding midsection as an inevitable side effect of getting older, but it doesn’t have to be that way. While a healthy diet and moderate exercise are your best insurance policies for staying fit and lean, PQQ can lend a helping hand.
It turns out that having healthy levels of mitochondria can boost your metabolism. When mitochondria levels decline, it can be more difficult to maintain your weight, leading to the slow but steady increase of numbers on the scale each year.
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 (for memory) and the skin (for aging).Have you tried VitaPQQ-SR yet?
