The supplement I’ve been recommending lately is PQQ (Pyrroloquinoline quinone). It’s an essential micronutrient that has antioxidant and anti-aging properties and works at the cellular level. PQQ helps produce energy at the mitochondrial level. Your mitochondria are the engines that run almost all energy production in your body.
How is it different from CoQ10 – another micronutrient that works at the mitochondrial level? CoQ10 supports the mitochondria in doing their job, while PQQ helps the mitochondria reproduce, regenerate and repair. It essentially protects them. Nice, huh?
In addition to boosting energy, PQQ has been shown to protect organs, like the heart and the brain. It has been shown to protect from degenerative issues like Alzheimer’s and dementia. It’s also mood-protective.
I really like Seeking Health PQQ because it’s sublingual (under the tongue) and fast-acting. Unfortunately, it does have a green color that temporarily stains your tongue and may leave residue on the edges of your teeth until you brush your teeth and tongue, so plan ahead if you decide to take it! To me, it’s worth the planning.
