Excellent product!

I have recently started taking Jarrow Formulas PQQ. The correct dosage for PQQ seems to be 20-60 mg per day. I take 40 mg per day. Some people feel a lot from PQQ (I certainly do feel it) and some people feel absolutely nothing. When I take PQQ I feel that my body heats up, I have more energy and I get a lot less hungry, sometimes to the point where I forget to eat. It helps me with my diet. I have also tried Mitochondrial Energy Optimizer with BioPQQ from Life Extension - that's how I got introduced to PQQ. It is a more complete supplement which targets mitochondria, the powerhouse of the cell. Some people recommend taking Ubiquinol together with PQQ, it seems to improve memory. Obesity is a complicated health problem and nobody knows the true causes. Some experts believe that obesity appears because of unhealthy mitochondria - they can't turn fats into energy and so people feel hungry all the time and have difficulties burning fat. Supplements that target mitochondria, such as PQQ, Acetyl-L-Carnitine, Alpha-Lipoic-Acid, Ubiquinol, Idebenone, MitoQ, Resveratrol can fix this problem and make it easier to lose weight. For more information, please look up "mitochondrial hypothesis of obesity". PQQ is also reported to help increase athletic endurance - it helps you go on and on and on. I have also felt this effect. PQQ may also help improve non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

Some people feel a lot from PQQ (I certainly do feel it) and some people feel absolutely nothing. When I take PQQ (alone or as a part of this formula) I feel that my body heats up, I have more energy and I get a lot less hungry, sometimes to the point where I forget to eat. It helps me with my diet. Mitochondrial Energy Optimizer with BioPQQ from Life Extension is a complete supplement which targets mitochondria, the powerhouse of the cell. Some people recommend taking Ubiquinol together with PQQ, it seems to improve memory. Obesity is a complicated health problem and nobody knows the true causes.

For more information, please look up "mitochondrial hypothesis of obesity". PQQ is also reported to help increase athletic endurance - it helps you go on and on and on. I have also felt this effect. PQQ may also help improve non-alcoholic fatty liver disease or NASH, as mitochondria play an important role in these liver diseases. The correct dosage for PQQ seems to be 20 mg - 60 mg per day. This is why, together with this excellent formula from LEF, I also take some pure PQQ from Jarrow.

Excellent, gives me lots of energy

Gives me a lot of energy when I take it in large doses. The kind of sustained lasting energy. But to accomplish this I have to take about 5 grams at once (the entire tub has 7.5 grams). Thorne Research should offer larger sizes of this.

Good to take in autumin and winter to increase immunity, but the dosage is too high!

This is effective, but taking 5000 IU of D3 every day will make you very sleepy and is probably excessive. Should also contain vitamin K2 - vitamin D3 should always be taken with K2. It helped my knees immensely by increasing calcium uptake in bones (however, if you don't take it with K2, the calcium will also harden artery walls). Instead of this I recommend finding a product which contains only 1000 IU or less, and which also contains K2 (and also pay attention to the form of K2).

Good for the brain and good for you :)

Got muscle twitch from taking 2-3 caps of Alpha-GPC per day. Instead of this, I prefer Citicoline. It makes your memory sharper. It also stimulates the release of HGH (human growth hormone) which may help you lose weight and make gray hair return to its original color. It also makes you calmer because it stimulates GABA secretion. It's good to take before bed, as it helps you sleep. For memory I had much better results with Citicoline (CDP Choline).

Helps with joints and skin

Posted on Sep 15, 2013

Taking this every day helped the skin on my face a lot. 10 grams of collagen every day taken for 6 months have been clinically proven to improve the joints. The MRI scans clearly show this. Also, there should be an effect on the skin. This is much better than the pill version from Neocell, because you can mask the taste by mixing it with a liquid.

Helped my memory and concentration A LOT!

I have taken 2 g (8 caps) of Citicoline for 30 days. My memory has improved noticeably. Also, my thinking speed seems to be increased. According to research, Citicoline crosses the BBB (blood brain barrier) easily (unlike lecithine which can't cross the BBB easily), helps you rebuild the brain and also increases the dopamine receptor density. This makes you benefit more from your own dopamine neurotransmitter. Because of increasing dopamine action, Citicoline helps you decrease your cravings for foods. It also makes me feel good and energetic, it gives a subtle but pleasant feeling. I don't want the insane stimulation that Piracetam, Aniracetam or Pramiracetam gives. I want a nootropic which helps me keep my brain healthy long-term. Citicoline fulfills that purpose well. An alternative to Citicoline is Alpha GPC, which has a somewhat different effect. Alpha GPC is a growth hormone and GABA secretagogue, and makes you more quiet. Alpha GPC also helps with the gray hair. However, Citicoline remains my favorite.

Makes me feel much better and a lot less hungry

I didn't have high hopes from this supplement. I ordered it mostly because the "Immortal Hair" web site recommends it for stopping hair loss (along with many other supplements). I discovered that it makes me feel very good and that it removes my hunger.

Helps with joints and skin. A more youthful face. Good for anti-aging.

This is very effective. However, I prefer the powder from the same company, the powder can be mixed in coffee so you avoid tasting it. You can not avoid to taste the pills - they taste absolutely horrible to me and this is why I'm rating this 1 star. Instead of this, I recommend the Neocell Super Collagen POWDER which can be mixed into coffee or juice, to mask the taste. The powder is an excellent product. 10 grams of collagen every day taken for 6 months have been clinically proven to improve the joints. The MRI scans clearly show this. Also, there should be an effect on the skin. I prefer this version which also contains a bit of Vitamin C.

Worst supplement I ever used

Posted on Dec 05, 2012

8 people found the following review helpful

I started experimenting with both D-phenylalanine (DPA) and D,L-phenylalanine (DLPA) because I have read about them in "The Diet Cure" by Julia Ross. All the other advices in the book were very good and helped me a lot. But using DLPA or DPA proved to be catastrophic for me. In the beginning, DLPA and DPA (1 pill per day) gave me a pleasant feeling of relaxation. But afterwards I had horrible symptoms: horrible headaches, dizziness and hot flashes which went on for 2-3 days, in spite of the fact that I ceased taking them. I have tried using DLPA or DPA multiple times. Each time the symptoms above (horrible headache, dizzyness, feeling hot) manifested themselves. So, to me it is a horrible supplement, one of the worst experiences I had. DLPA and DPA had the same effect on me, so I'm posting the same text as reviews for both products that I used.
