“There is a limited number of raw ingredients that are Informed-Choice and -Sport certified. BioPQQ is the only supplement of its kind to receive these certifications, which speaks to the product’s safety and quality assurance,” said Shoji Matsukawa, general manager, organic chemicals sales & marketing for Mitsubishi Gas Chemical America. “Athletes and other consumers are looking for a guarantee that the products they use are safe and effective, particularly when it plays a role in fundamental functions of the brain and body.”
Multiple studies, including human clinical trials, show that BioPQQ supports the creation of mitochondria, the powerhouse of cells that are critical to energy production. Studies also suggest that BioPQQ supports heart and cognitive health by promoting nerve growth factor in the brain. For athletes and other consumers, BioPQQ can help to improve energy as well as provide powerful anti-oxidant features that have been shown to inhibit neurotoxicity. Its anti-oxidative effect has been demonstrated to be significantly higher than both vitamin C and vitamin E.
Manufactured by Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Co., BioPQQ was granted New Dietary Ingredient (NDI) notification by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. BioPQQ also has GRAS (“generally regarded as safe”) status, enabling it to be included as a food ingredient. BioPQQ will also soon be added to the European Union’s Approved List of Novel Foods.
