What is PQQ?
PQQ (pyrroloquinoline quinone) is a rare natural bioactive substance, that exists in natto, parsley, green tea, oolong tea, kiwi fruit, etc. In addition, a small amount of PQQ has also been detected in eggs and skim milk. It stimulates cell growth in the human body, and in humans, it functions like vitamin B.
As an oxidoreductase prosthetic group, PQQ can directly participate in the redox reaction in the body, it can stimulate the rapid growth of microorganisms, plants, animals, and human cells, and improve the immune function of the human body; it can significantly reduce the levels of serum bilirubin and alanine aminotransferase, It can effectively prevent and treat liver damage; it can regulate free radicals in both directions, prevent tumors, heart disease, and delay aging; it can promote the synthesis of nerve factors and regulate various nervous system diseases.
What does PQQ do?
Mitochondria are known to be the powerhouse of cells, converting food and oxygen into energy. Healthy mitochondria play an important role in supporting important markers of cognition, fitness, and aging. But as we age, mitochondria deteriorate and die.
PQQ is unique in that it increases the number and quality of healthy mitochondria in aging cells. In addition to improving energy production, PQQ can also slow down some aging processes.
PQQ is a very effective antioxidant that can scavenge excess free radicals in the body and protect the body from oxidative damage. Free radicals are a class of compounds produced in the body’s oxidative reaction. They have strong oxidative properties. Once accumulated in the body, they will damage tissues and cells, thereby causing chronic diseases and aging effects. Studies have found that the ability of PQQ to scavenge free radicals is 50 to 100 times that of vitamin C, and it is the substance with the strongest antioxidant capacity found so far. A large number of experiments also show that PQQ can protect the heart from damage caused by hypoxia and ischemia, prevent the occurrence of cataracts, reduce swelling, anti-inflammatory, and many other effects.
The role of PQQ in neurotrophic and protection is even more remarkable. The study found that PQQ can promote the synthesis of nerve growth factor NGF, thereby promoting the regeneration of the severed sciatic nerve. It has development prospects in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
PQQ also has many remarkable magical effects. Acetaldehyde is a harmful intermediate product of alcohol metabolism and an important cause of alcoholism. Japanese scientists found that PQQ can accelerate the oxidation of acetaldehyde to acetic acid to reduce the content of acetaldehyde in the body, which is expected to reduce the toxic damage to the liver caused by drinking.
How to benefit from PQQ?
With more and more research on various health benefits, the nutrition and energy obtained from daily food can no longer meet the needs of modern people, and food supplements came into being. Food supplements can be thought of as “concentrated foods”.
The United States approved the first PQQ dietary supplement in 2009. Since PQQ is rarely soluble in water, the supplement is composed of PQQ sodium salt (PQQ-2Na+), which has better solubility; in 2018, the European Union also approved PQQ-2Na+ It is a healthy food, suitable for adults except for pregnant women and lactating women.
Xi’an Lyphar provides Pyrroloquinoline Quinone free acid and Pyrroloquinoline Quinone Disodium Salt, both types have good water solubility.
