A new antioxidant – Pyrroloquinoline quinine

IAS News 17 May 2013 | 1 Comment

Many of our customers like to look after themselves in every way possible. For this reason we keep as up to date as possible with the newest products that are showing themselves to be useful within, not only the antiaging market, but also the healthy living one too!

Pyrroloquinoline quinine is one such new product. It is rapidly emerging as one of the newest and perhaps most beneficial neutraceutical of all time. Perhaps even outdoing Resveratrol and Quercetin, whose benefits we have long extolled.

There are many benefits of taking Pyrroloquinoline quinine, including improvement in energy levels, cognitive function and memory, better skin conditions and it also has a cardio protective element to it. Surprisingly there have been almost 200 studies into PQQ – which Pyrroloquinoline quinine is often shortened too. Some of these studies have shown that it is vital to human life, biochemical functions wouldn’t operate successfully without it.

PQQ can be found in many foods that are considered to be part of a health diet, including beans, potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, apples, kiwis, bovine milk, wine and eggs.

Researchers at the University of California showed that PQQ protects the mitochondria from stress; promoting the generation of new mitochondria. The obvious implications for the aging process are profound as previously the only way to stimulate mitochondrial biogenesis are intense aerobic exercise, strict calorie restriction and medications such as the diabetes drug metformin.

PQQ has also shown the ability to protect memory and cognition in the later years of life. It does so by stimulating the production and release of nerve growth factors in the neurons within the brain. Also shown to help safeguard against the self-oxidation of DJ-1 protein which can be an early step in some forms of Parkinson’s Disease.

One study that wasn’t peer reviewed, nor published in a medical journal showed that 20mg per day of PQQ resulted in an outperformance of more than twofold as opposed to those who were in the placebo group in standardized memory tests. This was further increased when taken in combination with 300mg of CoQ10.

So from all of this, and plenty more than can be found about PQQ, it is perhaps obvious why IAS was so excited to add this antioxidant to our range.
