As you grow older, three things happen to your mitochondria:
They undergo damage and mutations that affect their function.
These damaged mitochondria accumulate in your cells.
Your cells produce fewer new mitochondria.
Researchers have discovered that your mitochondria – those powerful energy factories within your cells – actually drive your body’s cellular aging.
Bottom line, the greater the number of mitochondria in your body and the healthier their functioning, the greater your odds are of living a long, healthy life.
Two nutrients have been found to support mitochondrial health in very unique ways:BerberineandPQQ(Pyrroloquinoline quinone). Dr Mercola's special formulaBerberine and MicroPQQ Advancedprovides a two-punch approach to optimizing your mitochondrialandyour metabolic health.
In addition Dr Mercola Berberine with MicroPQQ Advanced will help to:
Protect your mitochondria from oxidative damage
Promote the growth of new mitochondria
Support neurological and cognitive function
Support immune and cardiovascular health
Prevent harmful fat deposits and encourages fat burning
Promote insulin, leptin and adiponectin function for a healthy metabolism
Support healthy blood sugar levels already in the normal range
Promote healthy insulin sensitivity
Promote the growth of healthy gut microflora
Support healthy lipid metabolism.
Dr Mercola Berberine and MicroPQQ Advanceddiffers from other Berberine or PQQ supplements in five important ways:
This formula combines two mitochondrial health nutrients essential for their critical roles in up regulating and down regulating important biochemical pathways.
Patented MicroPQQ is more than twice as effective (2.2 times to be exact) as regular PQQ, so 10 mg provides the same benefits as 20 mg of regular PQQ.
MicroPQQ stays in your bloodstream longer, nine hours compared to only two or three hours for regular PQQ. Longer blood exposure may mean greater potential benefits.
It is specially formulated to enhance absorption through sustained release of PQQ for higher availability.
It i s very stable and can complete thousands of redox/antioxidant cycles instead of self-oxidizing and turning inactive.
