PQQ Caps with BioPQQ, 20 mg, 30 caps by Life Extension

PQQ (Pyrroloquinoline quinone) is a next generation cellular rejuvenator which triggers growth of new mitochondria in aging cells10 and activates genes involved in protecting delicate structures within the mitochondria. Mitochondrial dysfunction is known to be involved in glaucoma.**

  • Glaucoma patients may benefit from mitochondrial support**
  • Recommended along with CoQ10 and Shilajit for mitochondrial support**
  • Antioxidant power. Like CoQ10, PQQ is a highly potent antioxidant. Its extraordinary molecular stability enables it to facilitate thousands of biochemical reactions in the mitochondria without breaking down, for maximum antioxidant and bioenergetic support.11
  • Favorably modulates gene expression. PQQ activates genes that promote formation of new mitochondria10 — and beneficially interacts with genes directly involved in mitochondrial health. These same genes also support healthy body weight, normal fat and sugar metabolism, and youthful cellular proliferation.12
  • Mitochondrial defense. Mitochondria possess their own DNA, distinct from the DNA contained in the nucleus. Unfortunately, compared to nuclear DNA, mitochondrial DNA are relatively unprotected. PQQ’s antioxidant potency and favorable gene expression profile act to support mitochondrial defense.

PQQ is an essential nutrient, meaning that your body cannot make it on its own. A growing body of research indicates that PQQ’s unique nutritional profile supports heart health and cognitive function — alone61-63 and in combination with CoQ10. 64,65 This comes as no surprise, given how much energy these vital organs need.**

Mitochondria are the cellular energy generators that supply virtually all the power your body requires for a healthy life span. An abundance of published studies underscores the critical importance of the mitochondria to overall health, especially as we age.51-54,58-60 Energy-intensive organs like the heart and brain are dense with mitochondria. Until recently, the only natural ways for aging individuals to increase the number of mitochondria in their bodies were long-term calorie restriction or exhaustive physical activity — which are difficult or impractical for most people to implement. PQQ offers a viable alternative.**

The enormous amount of energy generated within the mitochondria exposes them to constant free radical activity. The resulting mitochondrial decay is a hallmark of aging. PQQ protects and augments delicate mitochondrial structures to promote youthful cellular function.**

Research shows that PQQ supports heart cell function in the presence of free radicals and promotes blood flow in the heart muscle.63 When taken in combination with CoQ10, 20 mg per day of PQQ has been shown to promote memory, attention, and cognition in maturing individuals.65

While it has been clinically shown that 20 mg of PQQ are necessary to effectively support cognitive function, 10 mg of PQQ or even less has been clinically shown to induce mitochondrial biogenesis (growing new mitochondria) for more youthful cellular energy output.66

Life Extension uses a purified, highly potent form of PQQ from Japan that is produced through a unique fermentation process. The result is BioPQQ®, the highest quality PQQ available on the market today.**

Life Extension Foundation has one mission, and one mission only: to help you live a healthier, longer life.

In fact, we're at the forefront of medical research, constantly looking for ways to prolong youth, health, and life. And we've been at it for more than 34 years, investing more than $140 million to find therapies and technologies that could lead to lifesaving cures for the diseases of aging.

Did you know that we were the first to recommend low-dose aspirin therapy to protect against heart attack … CoQ10 for heart health … and the Omega-3s in fish oil to promote heart health?

Science-Based Supplements

Over 350 premium-quality formulations that are the gold standard of the industry. All are clinically validated and tested.

What is the Life Extension Foundation?

The Life Extension Foundation is one of the largest organizations dedicated to investigating every method of extending the healthy human life span. When seeking anti-aging therapies, health and nutrition, The Foundation has reported discoveries in the areas of atherosclerosis and stroke prevention, diabetes, prostate health, hormone replacement therapy, and other health concerns. The Life Extension Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization whose goal is to conquer the aging process within the next decade.

How old is the Life Extension Foundation?

The Life Extension Foundation was officially incorporated in 1980, but its founder has been involved in anti-aging research since the 1960s.

What scientific breakthroughs has the Life Extension Foundation made?

Research supported by The Life Extension Foundation has documented the value of antioxidants in extending life span and in protecting cells against ischemia (lack of blood flow). Ischemia is the leading cause of disability and death. Ischemia can be caused by the blockage of a coronary artery, which can lead to a heart attack, or a cerebral artery, which can lead to a stroke. Accident victims often die from ischemia. The Foundation supports a full time research facility that has broken all world records in protecting against ischemia-induced free radical damage.

What is the Foundation's track record in recommending Life Extension Therapies?

The Life Extension Foundation was the first organization to defy the FDA by promoting the use of antioxidant vitamins to maintain health. The Foundation was the first organization to promote the use of low dose aspirin to maintain cardiovascular health. The Foundation was the first organization to recommend against the use of iron in dietary supplements because of evidence that iron causes massive free radical damage contributing to the development of cancer, atherosclerosis and a host of other diseases. The Foundation was the first organization to inform Americans about the "miracle nutrient" coenzyme Q10, about the anti-cancer carotenoids lycopene, lutein, and xanthophyl, and about the most effective anti-aging therapy in the world, Melatonin. And the Foundation was the first organization to introduce Americans to European "smart drugs" like piracetam, centrophenoxine, and DHEA.
