Explanations of all Four
#1: PQQ: THE IMPORTANCE OF PQQ!
Mitochondria are the cellular energy generators that supply virtually all the power your body requires for a healthy life span. An abundance of published studies underscores the critical importance of the mitochondria to overall health, especially as we age. Energy-intensive organs like the heart and brain are dense with mitochondria. Until recently, the only natural ways for aging individuals to increase the number of mitochondria in their bodies were long-term calorie restriction or exhaustive physical activity — which are difficult or impractical for most people to implement. PQQ offers a viable alternative.
The enormous amount of energy generated within the mitochondria exposes them to constant free radical activity. The resulting mitochondrial decay is a hallmark of aging. PQQ protects and augments delicate mitochondrial structures to promote youthful cellular function in three distinct ways:
- Antioxidant power. Like CoQ10,PQQ is a highly potent antioxidant. Its extraordinary molecular stability enables it to facilitate thousands of biochemical reactions in the mitochondria without breaking down, for maximum antioxidant and bioenergetic support.
- Favorably modulates gene expression. PQQ activatesgenes that promote formation of new mitochondria10 — and beneficially interacts with genes directly involved in mitochondrial health. These same genes also supporthealthy body weight, normal fat and sugar metabolism, and youthful cellular proliferation.
- Mitochondrial defense.Mitochondria possess their own DNA, distinct from the DNA contained in the nucleus. Unfortunately, compared to nuclear DNA, mitochondrial DNA are relatively unprotected. PQQ’s antioxidant potency and favorable gene expression profile act to support mitochondrial defense.
PQQ is an essential nutrient, meaning that your body cannot make it on its own. A growing body of research indicates that PQQ’s unique nutritional profile supports heart health and cognitive function — alone61-63 and in combination with CoQ10. 64,65 This comes as no surprise, given how much energy these vital organs need.
Research shows that PQQ supports heart cell function in the presence of free radicals and promotes blood flow in the heart muscle. When taken in combination with CoQ10, 20 mg per day of PQQ has been shown to promote memory, attention, and cognition in maturing individuals.
While it has been clinically shown that 20 mg of PQQ are necessary to effectively support cognitive function, 10 mg of PQQ or even less has been clinically shown to induce mitochondrial biogenesis (growing new mitochondria) for more youthful cellular energy output.
PRL uses a purified, highly potent form of PQQ from Japan that is produced through a unique fermentation process. The result is PRL PQQ®, the highest quality PQQ available on the market today.
#2: D-Ribose is a specific sugar that is used by the mitochondria or powerhouse of the cell.
#3: NADH Coenzyme One
Depression, Cellular Energy, DNA Damage
NADH is a coenzyme found naturally in all living cells of the human body. NADH is also called Coenzyme 1 because it is top-ranked over all other coenzymes, including the famous Coenzyme Q-10. NADH is the abbreviation for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, and directly aids in ATP, energy, production in the cell.
It is essential to the proper functioning of the bodys DNA repair system, and is used whenever DNA repair takes place. Higher levels of NADH may promote longevity and vitality and may help maintain healthy brain function. NADH is also a potent biological antioxidant.
- Repairs damaged DNA better than anything else in the nutrient world
- Required to activate CoQ10 for maximum cell energy production, which helps the body to remove chemicals and toxins
- Improves athletic performance
- Excellent for those with adrenal burn out
- Produces natural deep sleep with those using medications
- Enhances memory, alertness, concentration
- Increases oxygen utilization
- Increases secretion of dopamine, serotonin, noradrenalin
- Provides significant relief from depression
- Ideal support for increasing cellular enegy during detoxification
- Helpful with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease
Needle and Thread for Your DNA
Genetic damage is part of the biochemical basis for many chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, arteriosclerosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and many immune system deficiencies. Our DNA repair system cannot function properly without adequate amounts of NADH. The more DNA that needs to be repaired, the more NADH is used up by the cell. The more NADH a cell has available, the greater the repairing capacity. With increased NADH, greater longevity and life extension could be the result. NADH is critical to help slow the aging process and to maintain and defend the brain as well as the entire body.
Boosting Athletic Performance
The results of a European research study were reported in April, 1996, in the International Journal of Sports Medicine. This study measured the reaction times and ergometric performance of competition level cyclists and long distance runners. The athletes took 5 mg of NADH daily for 4 weeks. After 4 weeks, 16 of the 17 athletes had decreased their reaction times by an astounding 10 – 20%. These are impressive improvements for young, well-conditioned competitive athletes. In addition, their spiro-ergometric parameters, maximum oxygen uptake (VO2 max/kg) and maximum heart frequency were also improved. There were no negative side effects. The athletes commented that they also experienced greater mental acuity and alertness.
A Potent Biological Antioxidant
NADH is a potent biological antioxidant. Aging is a transition from an energy-rich state to an energy-poor state. The energy-rich state is the reduced form of a biological compound; the energy-poor state is the oxidized form of the same compound. NADH, the reduced form of Coenzyme 1, has the highest reduction potential of all biologically active compounds. Therefore, it can produce the greatest amount of energy. NADH can also scavenge free radicals to a greater extent than most other well-known biological substances.
Increased Energy, Vitality, and Mood
NADH is a very safe, effective substance, not toxic even in high concentrations and has no side effects. NADH increases cellular energy production and can also extend cell longevity. NADH has been shown to slow aging and provide dramatic help for with degenerative diseases, including chronic fatigue, adrenal deficiency, depression, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Unique Proprietary Stabilization and Ideal Delivery System
PRL uses a unique, proprietary stabilization process which prevents destruction of the NADH, even at temperatures above 100º F. PRL guarantees full potency for up to two years, even if exposed to temperatures above 100º F. PRL also takes advantage of a sublingual (taken under the tongue) delivery system which provides much higher levels of NADH directly to the brain, bypassing the liver which consumes large amounts of NADH and prevents it from reaching the brain.
#4: Liposomal Glutathione:
What is Glutathione?
Glutathione (GSH) is a tripetide thiol (sulfur-containing) compound molecule that is made inside every cell in the human body. It is composed of the three amino acids L-glutamine, L-cysteine and L-glycine, and is found in the highest levels in the liver, eyes, spleen, pancreas and kidneys. Glutathione is the single most protective antioxidant produced by the body and therefore the most important as it protects cells against the oxidative stress of free radicals. Thus, it protects vulnerable DNA from damage, while helping to bind heavy metals, remove toxins and enhance immune function; it is also especially supportive during viral infections. Glutathione is also very crucial for proper mitochondrial function and energy production. Chronic illness as well as long term toxic exposure can not
only deplete stores of glutathione but also inhibit its production. The body’s ability to make glutathione declines with age. In order to correct depleted states, supplementation is necessary and can be optimized with various forms of GSH and its precursors based on an individual’s needs. While IV glutathione administration is the most effective at raising blood levels of GSH, it is also the most expensive and inconvenient. In addition, current research shows that IV glutathione is not the best way to increase intracellular levels of GSH in most cells. Studies have shown that plasma GSH increases post-oral GSH supplementation, which may be the result of a combination of intact absorption of GSH, absorption of its three amino acid precursors and/or systemic sparing of GSH due to increased GSH in intestinal cells.
Benefits of Glutathione
- Reduces free radical-induced oxidative stress
- Helps optimize glutathione-dependent hepatic detoxification pathways, including the enhancement of heavy metal clearance
- Supports immune function
