We've heard about CoQ10 and its effect on our Mitochondria. Now, with the discovery of PQQ, you can help to maximise your ATP (energy storing molecules) and boost your daily spark, vitality and exuberance as well as protecting your brain.
A relatively recent discovery - Pyrroloquinoline quinone or, for ease of explanation PQQ, is a minor quinone molecule which has the ability to be a redox agent. When an antioxidant molecule neutralises an oxidised one, it uses up its ‘antioxidant value'. A redox agent is a molecule which, after that process, can restore or recycle itself to that former antioxidant form.
By utilising glutathione, PQQ appears capable of reprocessing several thousand cycles of redox before it finally gets used up. Dr Derrick DeSilvas PQQ Pyrroloquinoline Quinone is novel because it associates with protein structures inside the cell. As part of doing this it can actually also help to produce more mitochondria.
Found naturally in beans, parsley, potatoes, green tea and fermented foods, PQQ is organically concentrated in those vital organs which require the most energy. Organs such as the heart and the brain.
This is why PQQ is so active inside cellular mitochondria, the energy ‘epicentre' of cells. The consequences of which are so far reaching that, at this early stage, science is yet to fully comprehend the potential good PQQ supplementation might be able to do us.
What they do know about it at this relatively early stage though is nothing short of astonishing.
By helping to create mitochondria within our cells, PQQ can have a very real and lasting effect on not only our cellular structure but also the resultant effects on our metabolism, energy, cognitive function and immune systems.
It doesn't stop there though - it can also help to protect and regenerate our dying cells. We've already heard about the antioxidant/redox effect of Dr Derrick DeSilvas PQQ Pyrroloquinoline Quinone but it can also promote a ‘fountain of youth' effect within our cellular structure.
While the future for PQQ remains shrouded in quiet optimism, what we do know for now is that PQQ can actually reverse cognitive impairment caused by oxidative stress and has even improved performance on memory tests in animal studies.
