A recent discovery sheds new light on how our cells to produce energy, and how they can influence the process for slow aging, and give you more energy throughout the day.
This nutrients – call pyrroloquinoline quinone, or PQQ – has the potential to become a aging roundhouse, and I already I’m using it with my own patients improve daily energy levels .
See, PQQ is the first nutrient ever discovered that multiplies the number of mitochondria in their cells. Mitochondria are “power plants” in cells that generate all the energy that is used to get through your day.
As you age, the mitochondria become weak and begin to disappear. This is the first time we have had the opportunity to stimulate the growth of new energy producers in cells. And that’s great news.
is still ignored by conventional medicine, PQQ has also been shown to combat nerve damage, and even cancer Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease , one of the fastest growth of the epidemic 21.
Now the latest research has uncovered the crucial role of this super-nutrients and antioxidants in preventing – and even reverse -. Conditions of the brain associated with age, such as dementia, stroke, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson
Today, I’ll show how this new test will help your power brain , and their ability to think, remember, plan and develop strategies as you get older.
Healthy brains need healthy mitochondria
As the body hungrier energy in your body, brain cells have the highest number of mitochondria -. More than 2,000 of them in each nerve cell
and healthy brains need well-functioning mitochondria.
But as you get older, their decomposition mitochondria, weaken and die. They also become fewer. This is one of the main causes of aging and the cause of many neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s and dementia. i II
Recent clinical studies show that the brain is a major target for mitochondrial decay – more than any other part of your body. iii This is because the high energy demands of brain cells – and their constant exposure to large amounts of oxygen – make them vulnerable to damage from free radicals and stress oxidative. iv
When the damage becomes severe enough, the brain cells trigger the destruction of their own mitochondria. v
fewer mitochondria in brain cells means you lose your ability to produce energy and mental performance begins to decline.
Ultimately, this sets the brain cells in the way of “cell suicide”. And this loss of cells in brain tissue impacts of their mobility, their learning ability and memory, causing all kinds of neurological and brain disorders. vi
PQQ to the Rescue
PQQ has a reconstituting and rejuvenating impact on the brain . And it does three important ways …
1. Mitochondria have their own DNA delivery, and if they are provided with this super-nutrients, which begin to multiply within each of its cells. PQQ triggers the aging brain cells to grow new mitochondria.
And it is this process of “mitochondrial biogenesis” that stops and reverses cell death and degeneration brain . PQQ is the only nutrient that can do this.
2. PQQ also protects existing mitochondria in brain cells, working to clean up free radicals and oxidative stress damage to brain tissue -. The same things that kill mitochondria in the first place
3. At the same time, PQQ stimulates production of nerve growth factor (NGF) which activates the growth of new brain cells and branching nerve cells. vii viii NGF is crucial in repairing the damage caused by stroke.
I recommend to my patients receiving both PQQ food sources and supplements , because it is very important for the health of cells.
Here is a summary of PQQ common foods , based on a portion of 100 grams (3.5 ounces):
- Kiwi, 2.74 mcg
- sweet green peppers, 2.8 mcg
- carrots, 1.68 mcg
- Irish potato 1 66 mcg
- Col, 1.63 mcg
- sweet potatoes, 1.33 mcg
- bananas, 1.26 mcg
You should try to get as much of these foods in your diet as possible. But the moment of truth, you really need to take a good supplement PQQ to make sure you get all the benefits.
For best results, take your PQQ with coenzyme Q10 – both are key to helping each of their mitochondria remain healthy. PQQ recommend 10 mg daily with a supplement of 50 mg of ubiquinol, a much more powerful form of CoQ10 that is much easier for your body to absorb.
To your good health,
