By now I’m sure you’ve heard of the super vitamin PQQ. If you haven’t - not to worry - we are here to fill you in on what it is and why it’s so important to incorporate into your supplement intake.
What is PQQ and why should I take it?
Short for pyrroloquinoline quinone, PQQ is a vitamin-like compound that has made a huge wave in the supplement industry.
PQQ supplements are now everywhere but you can also get a dose of PQQ through many everyday foods. PQQ naturally occurs in a variety of foods but it is especially concentrated in foods like spinach, parsley, kiwi fruits, tofu, and green tea.
Unfortunately the PQQ content of even the most PQQ-rich foods is much lower than the amount you can get from a supplement (5 to 20 mg) which is why we highly recommend adding PQQ supplements into your daily regimen.
Now you might be asking yourself – why all the hype about PQQ supplements? Well PQQ has been shown to have a wide range of benefits related to memory, general cognition, mood, and mental processing power.* In fact, PQQ is considered to be the ultimate anti-aging supplement for brain health!
How does it work?
Overall PQQ’s role is to help protect the mitochondria –the “power plant” of our cells - from free radical damage and to help generate new mitochondria.
Mitochondria are the most important cellular components in your body. The mitochondria create adenosine triphosphate (ATP) which is the main source of energy for your cells. Thus supplying more energy to your body and mind.
What makes VitaPQQ-SR different?
Regular PQQ supplements can be difficult to absorb and almost entirely leaves the bloodstream 8 hours after administration.
But unlike ordinary PQQ supplements, VitaPQQ-SR features MicroPQQ, a special micronized, 8 hour sustained-release matrix using patent-pending MicroActive® technology. Since MicroPQQ spends more time in the bloodstream than regular PQQ, the body begins to absorb and utilize it twice as much – thus getting the full effect of PQQ!
We encourage you to do further research on PQQ and its many benefits, as well as the importance of supplement absorption. We hope that this blog has helped you begin understanding the importance of incorporating PQQ into your diet!
