The incredible supplement that delivers a “Swiss-Army Knife” of benefits!
At our clinic, we are proud to offer the most efficient, cutting-edge hormone replacement treatments available. Our specialties include Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Replacement Therapy, Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), and Sermorelin Therapy. We are second to none in delivering the miraculous benefits of these treatment regimens to our clients/patients.
But we don’t stop there
That’s correct. In our quest to propel our clients to optimal health we take a holistic approach: nutrition, controlling stress, sleep, physical fitness, detoxification, and the latest developments in the exciting, ever-evolving world of nutritional, longevity-promoting supplements.
And that includes a relatively unknown supplement with a hard-to-pronounce name: Pyrroloquinoline Qinnone. With a title that challenging to pronounce correctly, it is no wonder that it usually referred to by its initials: PQQ.
So what in the world is this unusual, little-known substance? PQQ resembles a vitamin and it was, in fact, once thought to be a vitamin. However, further research determined that PQQ was classified as a co-factor or enzyme booster.
In simple terms, a co-factor sets the table and lays the foundation for enzymes to get to work and fulfill their life-enhancing functions. Certain co-factor molecules transport electrons during reactions and this cause mitochondria to manufacture energy.
Why are mitochondria so critical to our health? Good question. Here are a few of the vital, life-sustaining roles that mitochondria provide:
Cellular respiration and energy production.
Oxidative radical regulation
Cell growth and death
And more, many more functions that we take for granted but keep us alive and well
To put it bluntly, you cannot have your body functioning at optimal levels without your mitochondria operating at peak performance.
And this is why PQQ is worth its weight in gold
Let’s take a deeper look at the benefits PQQ can deliver:
PQQ can dramatically boost the mitochondria and makes them more efficient. The result of this increased efficiency is your energy levels exploding through the roof without ingesting dangerous artificial stimulants.
Preventing oxidative stress. In our modern, convenience-based environment we are under a constant bombardment of toxins (air and water pollution, radiation, pesticides, food additives, cigarette smoke) that stimulates the production of free radicals and the diseases they often bring. A healthy body can fight off oxidative stress with the right nutrients, but an aging, weakened body cannot win this battle. PQQ plays a crucial role in strengthening the body’s defenses against oxidative stress.
Increased ability to fall into a deep, restorative sleep and stay asleep. Sleep is an often neglected yet vital aspect of optimal health. As we age it becomes increasingly challenging to get to sleep and stay asleep. Studies have shown that PQQ can help us sleep better by lowering cortisol levels. Cortisol is the so-called “stress hormone” that can cause insomnia and the less of it we have the better.
Lowers insulin resistance. According to some studies, PQQ may lower fat-induced insulin resistance by boosting mitochondrial biogenesis in muscle cells and deliver benefits similar to exercise.
Improves cardiovascular health.
And let’s not forget the brain benefits that PQQ provides
Earlier we said that PQQ offers a “Swiss-army knife” of benefits, and it does. As if all of the above benefits were not enough, perhaps the most significant benefit that PQQ offers is brain protection and enhancement.
Alzheimer’s Disease (AD)...Lewy body dementia...vascular dementia...frontotemporal dementia...Dementia Pugilistica (DP aka “punch drunk”)...all fall under the umbrella term of dementia.
A neurologist could explain the differences between these various brain afflictions. But regardless of what type of brain disease that strikes, we can all agree on this: any type of severe brain dysfunction is horrifying and robs us of our humanity.
Don’t believe that? Perhaps a trip to the Alzheimer’s ward at a local hospital will change your mind. Notice the zombies sitting around the table ignoring the blaring mindless television, the nurses delivering useless pills for the AD sufferers to mindlessly gulp down, the cards decks remaining unshuffled, the board games untouched, the total and complete inability to recognize family members and long-time friends, and the look of sadness and hopeless despair in the eyes of their loved ones.
Many consider dementia to be the cruelest disease we could develop. Some even consider it worse than death.
Regrettably, as of now, there is no cure for the nightmare of dementia. Therefore the name of the game must be prevention. There is, of course, so sure-fire, guaranteed, 100% effective way to ward off this dementia monster.
But for those of us that are doing every possible thing we can to enjoy an extended, healthy lifespan, we need to try every safe and legal approach possible.
And that includes PQQ
Modern medicine has worked countless miracles to save lives and extend our lifespans. But there is a significant problem with their approach. By necessity, our health care professionals must focus on dealing with diseases after they have emerged.
Undoubtedly, they are good at dealing with disease. But how about taking a proactive approach and attacking the underlying causes of these diseases before they inflict their terrible toll?
PQQ can help. As we age our mitochondrial function experiences a steep decline. By forming new mitochondria and protecting and strengthening the functioning of existing mitochondria the body receives dramatic benefits...especially the brain!
The energy jump that PQQ delivers to the cells increases their ability to stave off these brain diseases and deliver more benefits. Here are a few of these benefits courtesy of PQQ:
Increased nerve cell growth. PQQ has been shown to promote Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) construction which results in more neuron growth. This also ensures the survival of neuronal cells and creates the environment for higher brain function. NGF is crucial for cognition, memory, learning, and all-important plasticity, which is the process of how nerve cells connect and communicate with each other. Consider NGF as fertilizer for the brain!
Sharper memory. In addition to the facts just mentioned, PQQ can also reduce stress, which may lead to better memory. PQQ also might activate a protein called CREB that plays a critical role in stimulating the growth of new mitochondria and raising levels of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), a protein that one researcher described as “Miracle-Gro for the brain.”
Neuroprotection. PQQ hikes the level of a protein (DJ-1) that is vital to brain function since it lowers oxidative stress.
Battles Neurodegenerative Disease. Oxidative stress = oxidative damage = neurodegenerative disease. Research has concluded that PQQ can protect cells that are exposed to toxins that can destroy their DNA. This protection is especially exciting since it may be a weapon against the dreaded Parkinson’s Disease.
Lowers neuroinflammation. Inflammation is an age-accelerating, disease-promoting killer anywhere that it occurs in the body, and especially in the brain. Inflammation is one of the common denominators in virtually all neurodegenerative diseases. The good news is that studies have determined that PQQ blocks the manufacture of two pro-inflammatory signaling molecules.
Protects against excitotoxicity. Excitotoxicity (excessive glutamate stimulation of brain cells) is directly linked to brain illnesses such as stroke, schizophrenia, and other neurogenerative maladies. Again, it’s PQQ to the rescue. Studies have shown that when rats were given glutamate and PQQ there was a startling reduction in both cell death and oxidative damage.
Natural sources of PQQ
There are many foods that contain at least a small amount of PQQ, but here are a few foods that contain significant amounts of the substance:
Fermented soybean products
For many people, it will prove challenging to obtain a sufficient amount of PQQ through diet alone. Therefore, many will consider taking a PQQ supplement. As with all supplements do your research, discuss it with your physician, and remember that even though PQQ is considered safe a little may go a long way.
