We all want to live longer, healthier lives and to experience more energy on a daily basis; ultimately we want to slow down aging. Although, we don’t always feel like we are operating at our physical and mental best. Unfortunately, the older we get, the more that goal seems to slip from our grasp.
But the good news is it’s not impossible. After all I am 66!… Once we get a handle on what is causing our physiological aging, we have a chance to slow it down. And scientists have recently uncovered one key contributing factor: the degradation of mitochondria.
Present within every human cell, mitochondria generate in our bodies need to function efficiently. When enough mitochondria become damaged, or their quantities diminish, they are not able to produce sufficient energy to keep all the organs going. The result? Less energy. Foggy thinking. Accelerated cellular aging.
Interestingly, mitochondria have their own DNA that is different from regular nuclear DNA (nDNA). nDNA is encased in a protective protein coating. But mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is naked. That means it’s much more vulnerable to free radical damage. And guess where free radicals are generated? That’s right, in the mitochondria. Adding insult to injury, mtDNA is not equipped with the same repair mechanism as nDNA. As a result, mtDNA suffers more than 10 times the damage nDNA does.
Introducing PQQ FUEL – Slow Down Aging
One of the most effective supplements to slow down aging is called PQQ (Pyrroloquinoline Quinone). It is a neuro-protective compound found in soil and foods such as kiwi fruit as well as breast milk. As an overall anti-aging supplement, PQQ FUEL features 20 mg of PQQ vegicap and may:
Support mitochondrial health
PQQ protects mitochondrial function and promotes the generation of new mitochondria.
Slow the aging process
Since aging has been linked to mitochondrial degradation, limiting the damage to mitochondria may slow the aging process.
Boost your energy levels
Because the mitochondria are responsible for producing energy, preserving mitochondrial function means more energy is available for physical activity.
