Birth of new mi­to­chon­dria

Cecil Whig - - LOCAL -

Dr. Sears and his re­searchers com­bined the most pow­er­ful form of CoQ10 avail­able — called ubiquinol — with a unique, newly dis­cov­ered nat­u­ral com­pound called PQQ that has the re­mark­able abil­ity to grow new mi­to­chon­dria. To­gether, the two pow­er­houses are now avail­able in a sup­ple­ment called Ul­tra Ac­cel II.

Dis­cov­ered by a NASA probe in space dust, PQQ (Pyrrolo­quino­line quinone) stim­u­lates some­thing called “mi­to­chon­drial bio­gen­e­sis” — a unique process that ac­tu­ally boosts the num­ber of healthy mi­to­chon­dria in your cells.

In a study pub­lished in the Jour­nal of Nutri­tion, mice fed PQQ grew a stag­ger­ing num­ber of new mi­to­chon­dria, show­ing an in­crease of more than 55% in just eight weeks.

The mice with the strongest mi­to­chon­dria showed no signs of ag­ing — even when they were the equiv­a­lent of 80 years old.
