Optimise your mental and physical vitality at any age with the dual-action, energising nutrition of Swanson Ultra Enhanced PQQ with Ubiquinol. One of the most common age-related health complaints among both men and women as they grow older is a loss of general vitality
Enhanced PQQ with Ubiquinol addresses the issues of mental and physical energy at the most fundamental level: cellular mitochondrial function. The mitochondria function as miniature power plants, providing the energy for all cellular processes. Thus, maintaining healthy mitochondria is crucial for mental and physical well-being. PQQ (pyrroloquinoline quinone) is a vitamin-like compound that has emerged as one of the most promising nutrients for mitochondrial support, not only protecting the mitochondria against oxidative stress, but actually promoting the generation of new mitochondria within aging cells through a process known as mitochondrial biogenesis, which is normally only achievable through intense aerobic exercise. This means PQQ may be helpful for protecting the brain, heart and other organs with high energy requirements well into advanced years, especially for people whose health or physical limitations make strenuous exercise difficult.
A central factor in mitochondrial energy production is the availability of a compound known as coenzyme Q-10 (CoQ10, also known as "ubiquinone" because it is ubiquitous-found everywhere-in the human body) and its reduced, active form, ubiquinol. Ubiquinol acts as a sort of biochemical "sparkplug" within the mitochondria, igniting the process of energy production. As we grow older, the body's natural production of CoQ10 decreases, which is why many individuals turn to CoQ10 supplements to stave off age-related decline. The problem is, our ability to covert CoQ10 into its active, ubiquinol form also decreases with age, limiting the effectiveness of conventional CoQ10 supplements in older individuals. Enhanced PQQ with Ubiqinol features Kaneka QH(R) enhanced bioactivity CoQ10, the reduced, ubiquinol form of CoQ10. It is produced through a yeast fermentation process that yields a 100% natural, GMO-free product, with none of the impurities often found in synthetically processed CoQ10 supplements.
