PQQ stands for Pyrroloquinoline Quinone, also sometimes known as Methoxatin. It is a small molecule that appears to boost mitochondrial functioning within the body, with alleged potential ability to fight against disease, aging, and energy-related medical conditions like CFS and Lyme Disease. Found in trace levels in all plants, some plant-based foods contain more PQQ than others. Parsley, green peppers, kiwi fruit, papaya, and tofu are all rich with PQQ, for example.
Modern supplements, though, can purify and extract the PQQ molecule to deliver it in exceptionally high dosages. HOW PQQ WORKS AND INCREASE MITOCHONDRIA. PQQ has antioxidant properties associated with the repair of cognitive function, and scientists believe it may help control the ageing process, protect nerve cells and naturally stimulate energy levels linked to concentration and performance.Mitochondria are the cells energy powerhouses. A young persons cells contain a large number 2000-2,500 per cell which function at full capacity.
In older people, mitochondria are much fewer in number and function in slow motion, resulting in significant falls in energy, persistent cognitive problems and accelerated cell degradation. This major deficit in energy is involved in almost all age-related degenerative diseases. Although certain nutrients, such as ubiquinol, carnitine, lipoic acid, carnosine and resveratrol can help to improve the function of existing mitochondria, PQQ actually produces an increase in mitochondria - it promotes their biogenesis by activating genes which control their reproduction, even within senescent cells. Mitochondria have their own DNA, which differs from that present in the cell nucleus (DNA). Mitochondrial DNA has no protein protection and as a result, is much more vulnerable to free radicals generated within mitochondria.
In addition, this mitochondrial DNA is unable to self-repair in the same way as nuclear DNA; its degradation coefficient may thus be up to 10 times higher. Studies have shown that PQQ protects mitochondrial DNA 5,000 times more effectively than vitamin C. STUDIES OF PQQ'S POSSIBLE BENEFITS. Research on PQQ has indicated some of the following benefits. Anti-inflammatory effects could reduce the risk of disease.Acts as an antioxidant to target disease-causing free radicals inside the body. Appears to have a radio-protective effect. May improve insulin resistance, which could relieve some symptoms of diabetes. Appears to work as a growth factor when taken as a dietary supplement over a long period of time. Boosts mitochondrial function, which can boost energy throughout the body because mitochondria are the powerhouses of the cells, which is why some people take PQQ to relieve symptoms of Lyme Disease and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).
