Super Nutrient Improves Memory, Sleep, and More!
When it comes to nutrients, there are the superstars and the unsung heroes.
Superstars are nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin D, and omega-3s.
Unsung heroes include up-and-comers like magnesium, chromium, and pycnogenol.
Today I want to highlight an unsung hero that should receive superstar status.
You’ve probably never heard of this nutrient—but it’s absolutely essential for optimal health. Here are just seven of the reasons to get more of it.
PQQ (or pyrroloquinoline quinone) is an antioxidant that your body naturally produces. It helps protect your cells from oxidative damage and boosts energy metabolism and healthy aging.
Studies also show that it can combat two of the factors underlying chronic conditions like diabetes, cancer, and dementia: inflammation and free radicals.
It’s no wonder, then, that PQQ has such a powerful impact on so many health conditions. Take a look:
- It can improve brain function. Studies show that PQQ boosts memory and attention, and helps prevent cognitive decline as you get older. It has also been shown to help promote cellular repair functions—a key mechanism especially important for people recovering from strokes.
- It improves heart health. Studies have shown that supplementing with PQQ can reduce levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol, which is known to be a risk factor for heart disease.
- It can help you sleep better. One study showed that taking PQQ for two months helped people fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and obtain more quality sleep.
- It boosts liver health. In an animal study, adding in PQQ to the diet reduced inflammation in the liver, and reduced the risk of NAFLD (non-alcoholic fatty liver disease).
- It boosts mitochondrial function. Your mitochondria are the engines that power everything that takes place in your body. With age, they can get tired and stop functioning properly. PQQ supercharges your body’s mitochondria, enhancing mitochondrial activity and function.
PQQ is available in supplement form. Most studies done on PQQ show that its benefits start at about 20 mg per day.
But you can also obtain PQQ through numerous foods, like kiwi, green and oolong teas, parsley, and papaya.
