Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) is a recently discovered vitamin-like compound with antioxidant and B-vitamin-like activity that has a wide range of benefits for brain and body function. Clinical studies in humans have shown that PQQ enhances short-term memory and attention, improves energy metabolism, and reduces markers of inflammation, as well as improving general feelings of well-being.
PQQ is known to influence multiple cellular pathways, including the production of nerve growth factor (NGF). Like CoQ10, PQQ has diverse benefits for mitochondrial function. It has been shown to attenuate mitochondrial oxidative stress as well as stimulate mitochondrial biogenesis. Mitochondrial dysfunction is a key factor in the development of numerous health conditions, especially those typically related to aging.
PQQ not only supports cellular energy, but has neuroprotective properties. It protects cognitive health by promoting the recovery of damaged nerves, protecting neurons against oxidative damage and toxicity (including glutamate-induced toxicity), and helping combat the degenerative changes common to many neurodegenerative diseases.
BioPQQ is created using a patented natural fermentation process that results in a highly absorbable PQQ disodium salt. BioPQQ is the type of PQQ used in successful human clinical trials. BioPQQ is an innovative way to support energy levels, cardiovascular health, and cognitive function, as well as protect against age-related cognitive decline.
