Supports heart health and cognitive function. Supports the defense of mitochondrial DNA. Works synergistically with CoQ10. Supports the generation of new mitochondria (mitochondrial biogenesis).
Most people haven't even heard of the tiny cellular organelles known as mitochondria, but they constitute roughly 10 percent of our body weight. Too bad so many of them deteriorate or die off as we get older. If we can coax the body into growing more of them, we could theoretically double our life span, get rid of a whole bunch of diseases, and improve our strength-endurance by miles. One thing that's been shown to make mitochondria multiply is something called PQQ, and that's why it's one of my mainstay supplements. – TC Luoma
