Adaptogen + PQQ = Mitochondrial Biogenesis
Rhodiola roseaRhodiola rosea is an herb that helps support the adrenal glands. Research shows that an active component of Rhodiola, salidroside, is responsible for for enhancing mitochondrial energy production and biogenesis, which prevents the overactivation of oxidative stress (free radicals) pathways in your mitochondria and nervous system.
Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ)PQQ is a water-soluble, vitamin-like compound that has been shown to reduce inflammation and enhance mitochondrial function, therefore increasing energy levels and helping to deal with stress.
