PQQ’s benefits stem from our special formula, which is designed to promote healthy mitochondria, the cellular structures that produce energy needed by the entire body.
This novel formula takes PQQ (pyrroloquinoline quinone) and combines it with carnosine, r-lipoic acid, taurine and more to encourage healthy mitochondrial function, inhibit cellular glycation, supercharge cell-energy production and promote the generation of new mitochondria.
This formula is designed to promote cell energy production, mitochondrial growth and support cellular health and function.
Benefits of Mitochondrial Energy Optimizer with PQQ
- Promotes much-needed cellular energy production
- Encourages healthy function & creation of energy-producing cellular mitochondria
- Inhibits the effects of glycation & oxidation reactions on vulnerable cellular structures
- Helps inhibit inflammatory factors to support cellular health
What is R-lipoic acid?
Lipoic acid is a compound involved in aerobic metabolism. It protects mitochondria from oxidative stress and promotes youthful mitochondrial function.
Why did we add PQQ?
PQQ is a powerful nutrient. It promotes the production of new mitochondria, helps protect mitochondrial DNA and helps inhibit oxidative stress at the cellular level.
Power Up Your Cells
Healthy mitochondria produce the energy that powers our cells. Over time, however, mitochondria lose function. Researchers have identified several compounds that can help mitochondria work more efficiently, and even help generate new mitochondria. These compounds are combined to create Life Extension’s Mitochondrial Energy Optimizer with PQQ.
Our cells (as well as their mitochondria) need the right nutritional support, just like the rest of our body. That’s why we put these ingredients in our Mitochondrial Energy Optimizer formula.
PQQ — Pyrroloquinoline quinone is a micronutrient that helps promote energy metabolism. PQQ encourages the creation of new mitochondria and helps preserve mitochondrial function.
Carnosine — Composed of amino acids beta-alanine and L-histidine, carnosine has been shown to help inhibit the effects of advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) on cellular structures.
Benfotiamine —Benfotiamine is a form of vitamin B1 that helps inhibit the effects of AGEs and oxidative stress and can help inhibit inflammation to support cellular health.
Pyridoxal 5'-Phosphate —This active form of vitamin B6 has been shown to help inhibit glycation of both lipids and proteins.
R-lipoic acid —R-lipoic acid helps protect mitochondria by inhibiting the effects of free radicals and promotes youthful mitochondrial function.
Taurine —Taurine is an amino acid, present in nearly every cell, that helps promote healthy mitochondria function and can help inhibit inflammation to support cellular health.
