Coenzyme Q10

Coenzyme Q10 – also known as ubiquinone – represents a fundamental element for the correct functioning of the mitochondrion, an intracellular organelle that acts as an energy plant. By promoting the production of ATP in the presence of oxygen, Coenzyme Q10 is essential for maintaining good physical efficiency; it is therefore no coincidence that it is found in every cell of the organism (it is said to have ubiquitous distribution), hence the term ubiquinone (or vitamin Q). The concentration of Coenzyme Q10 tends to decrease with aging; low levels are also recorded in the presence of particular chronic diseases,

NADH

NADH (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a coenzyme (which intervenes in the aerobic energy production cycle (electron transport chain and oxidative phosphorylation).

Pyrroloquinoline quinone

PQQ has antioxidant and vitamin B-like activity, with a wide range of benefits for the brain and body. Promotes cognitive health and memory by combating mitochondrial dysfunction and protecting neurons from oxidative damage. Supports energy metabolism and healthy aging. Clinical studies in humans have shown that Pyrroloquinoline quinone improves short-term memory and attention, improves energy metabolism, and reduces markers of inflammation, as well as improving overall feelings of well-being. Pyrroloquinoline quinone is known to affect multiple cellular pathways, including the production of nerve growth factor (NGF). Like CoQ10, Pyrroloquinoline quinone has several benefits for mitochondrial function. It has been shown to attenuate mitochondrial oxidative stress and stimulate mitochondrial biogenesis. Mitochondrial dysfunction is a key factor in the development of numerous health conditions, especially those typically related to aging.
