PQQ and CoQ10 provide antioxidant and mitochondrial support through different mechanisms, providing multifunctional support for cardiovascular health. Research indicates that both PQQ and CoQ10 support heart muscle function and healthy cellular oxygen utilization. However, the mechanisms for this support differ. Studies suggest that PQQ promotes mitochondrial synthesis and function, while CoQ10 promotes energy production as a core component of cellular respiration. These actions are particularly supportive of tissues that require a lot of energy, such as the heart muscle. Furthermore, they acts as antioxidants, providing protection from free-radicals and helping to maintain the integrity of cellular membranes. Nerve and Cognitive Health:
Numerous studies have indicated that PQQ supports nerve health. Mechanistic investigations suggest that PQQ supports several signal transduction pathways that are important in maintaining mitochondrial homeostasis and oxidative metabolism. Like CoQ10, PQQ is a powerful antioxidant that supports mitochondrial function. PQQ also promotes healthy levels of nerve growth factor and supports synaptic and intracellular neuronal responses by maintaining healthy N-methyl D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor activity. The NMDA receptor is the primary conduit for excitatory glutamate neurotransmission and is regarded as an important target for maintaining neuronal health. Several studies suggest that PQQ may promote learning ability and memory. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial conducted in 71 middle-aged individuals, PQQ supplementation over a 12 week period supported healthy cognitive performance, and a combination of PQQ and CoQ10 provided greater support than PQQ alone.
