PQQ Provides Cognitive Benefits

NutraCap Admin


Many people are not familiar with what PQQ is. Only within the past decade or so is it that scientists have begun to understand what this essential nutrient’s importance is to human life. PQQ is best described as the defender and protector of the body’s energy-generating mitochondria. Based on new research PQQ is now being classified as a highly effective antioxidant, many times more efficient in sustaining mitochrondrial energy production than other commonly used antioxidant compounds. PQQ is also very unique due to its ability to stimulate the growth of fresh, new mitochondria within the human body. Studies of PQQ have also shown its ability to promote improved memory, concentration, and mental alertness especially when taken in combination with coenzyme Q10.

PQQ was discovered in 1979. Until this discovery it was said that the vitamins and minerals list would have shown to be complete as far as investigators were concerned. Once PQQ was discovered investigators then studied this newly-discovered nutrient which is found in many foods such as tofu, green tea and spinach. PQQ would be shown to be essential to good health. However it wasn’t until 2003 that researchers discovered its biochemical role in the lysine degradation process, and proposed it may belong to the B vitamin complex family. Mitochondria are best known as the energy producers of the cells. These cells work much like the engine of a car. These cells in your body make it so everything functions properly.

Proper mitochondrial function is critical for health and life. On the flip side mitochondrial dysfunction plays a significant part in many types of illnesses including fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic Lyme disease, type 2 diabetes, heart failure, as well as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Now many cell biologists believe the quantity and function of mitochondria are key determinants of longevity in human life. So what does PQQ have to do with the mitochondria? The answer to that question is many things. Many studies have found that when mice are deprived of PQQ, they have fewer mitochondria in their tissues of the body. These mice also exhibited stunted growth, compromised immunity, and impaired reproductive capability.

Mitochondria are extremely vulnerable to damage and destruction from free radicals. This is where PQQ comes in and is a super-powerful antioxidant with formidable free-radical scavenging capabilities. It is also an exceptionally stable molecule that is able to do its work successfully without breaking down. PQQ has been shown to be 30 to 5,000 times more efficient in sustaining mitochondrial energy production than the other common antioxidant compounds most people rely on such as ascorbic acid. PQQ is able to perform and stimulate mitochondrial biogenesis which is the growth of fresh, new mitochondria within the human body. This discovery was amazing for individuals of older age who could not perform activities leading to new mitochondria within the human body.

The older we get the more we start to experiencing things like memory loss and cognitive functioning difficulties. This is the result of the increased free radicals and oxidative stress that are taking on our mitochondria. Studies have found that 50% more mitochondrial damage in the brain cells of people over 70 compared to those in middle-aged individuals. When it comes to improving cognitive function and reversing mitochondrial dysfunction, PQQ and CoQ10 could aptly be called the dynamic duo to help reverse any side effects one may be experiencing from declining mitochondria. CoQ10 works to support optimum mitochondrial function while PQQ is busy encouraging the activation of genes that trigger mitochondrial reproduction, protection and repair.

It seems that we are just scratching the surface of the benefits PQQ may provide. In several animal studies PQQ has shown great promise in supporting a reduction of the damage from heart attack, stroke and spinal cord injury. Supplementation with PQQ was associated with a reduced area of cardiac tissue death and improved overall cardiac function. PQQ is being widely used amongst products within the supplementation industry and it will be exciting to see the new breakthroughs of this ingredient.

Astragin The Absorption King

NutraCap Admin


AstraGin is a 100% natural ingredient that is a carefully blended mix of two highly fractionated plant extracts. These plant extracts consist of Panax notoginseng and Astragalus membranecous. Ginseng and astragalus are very powerful and well respected herbs within the traditional medicine community. Ginseng is very popular and has over a dozen ginsenosides while astragalus has at least a half dozen fractions found within the herb itself. Each fraction or ginsenoside has shown in scientific studies to affect or influence certain biological processes within the human body. Many studies have also shown that isolating certain fractions along with combining it at a specific ratio with another fraction will result in positive influences. With AstraGin it is found that a patent pending ratio helps improve nutrient absorption through the small intestine.

AstraGin is an ingredient that is highly recommended for amino acids & certain vitamin and mineral supplements. AstraGin can also be used as a stand-alone product for those that may have digestive issues. AstraGin has shown in studies dealing with animals to actually help support the lining of your intestine for better overall absorption within the human body. Astragin has also shown to increase the L-Arginine & L-Citrulline absorption rate which then helps the body’s ability to produce HGH Levels alongside increasing the nitric oxide levels throughout the bodily system. Nitric Oxide is absolutely crucial to your overall well-being and is mostly regarded as the most significant molecule in the body for its ability to reduce stress on the heart, regulate blood pressure, improve circulation, and reduce plaque in blood vessels. This is the body’s way of preventing strokes and heart attacks to help keep you healthy.

The absorption of many nutrients in the human body is controlled by specific substances call transporter proteins. These protein compounds are regulated by mRNA which is a molecule that receives and a chemical message for protein products. This in a nutshell is what AstraGin does for many vitamins and amino acids. AstraGin has been clinically studied to help arginines absorption rate by 62% and glucosamines absorption rate by 42% alongside vitamins absorption such as folate by 48%.  If you use this alongside joint relief products many studies suggest that it will give you the energy you need to finish workouts. AstraGin has been proven to promote well-being and overall health. This new natural ingredient is becoming more popular in sports nutrition and just 60 milligrams of AstraGin a day will increase absorption levels of nutrients such as amino acids, vitamins and protein. When AstraGin and L-arginine are stacked together the absorption levels increases by a huge 62%. Athletes are testing the effects of Amino acids combined with AstraGin and has found that they have more strength as well as endurance for each workout.

Many new nitric oxide products contain AstraGin in them as wel. Since AstraGin can significantly improve the absorption levels it only makes sense to include it into any supplement product that can be absorbed by the body because who wouldn’t want a better absorption rate for the products they are consuming. It is extremely important that you get the most “bang for your buck” when taking vitamins, nutrients, and other supplements. AstraGin ingredients will give you that “bang for your buck” as it significantly improves your absorption levels.

Here at NutraCap Labs we offer Astragin as one of our premium ingredients. Let us help you formulate your next product for your supplement line using this great ingredient. To get the process started today visit us online at

Mulberry Fruit Comes With Awesome Benefits

NutraCap Admin

Mulberries are a product of the Morus alba tree that grow wild throughout the United States as well as  other parts of the world. These berries are often overlooked and considered a nuisance since many people are not aware of the many health benefits and nutritional value that they contain. While mulberries are relatively unpopular with the public these berries acutally provide many benefits when it comes to overall health. In this article we will discuss the many benefits of Mulberry Fruits and all the good they can do in the human body.

Mulberries are shown to be an excellent source of vitamin B, vitamin C, vitamin K, and iron. These berries are also a good source of dietary fiber, protein, magnesium, folic acid, and potassium.  The vitamins found in mulberries function as co-factors and help body in the metabolism and regulation of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Mulberries also contain antioxidant powers that lessen the damage caused by free radicals floating within the human body as well. According to one study mulberries contain one special antioxidant that has recently been shown to have anti-aging and longevity abilities such as human growth hormone. This antioxidant is called Resveratrol. Resveratrol is a polyphenol flavonoid antioxidant that is also found in red grapes as well as red wine.  The power of the antioxidants in mulberries has also been shown to help as a preventative to cancer and aid in treatment of existing cancer in some patients.

Traditional Chinese medicine has used mulberry as a remedy for inflammation for many years as well. Another recent study discovered that a curcumin and mulberry leaf combination may work together to create an environment for natural remedies of inflammation. Mulberries health benefits also include a positive effect on blood circulation which helps lower your overall blood pressure and makes you less susceptible to blood clots, strokes, heart disease, and lower cholesterol.

Another great fact about Mulberries is that they can help you lose weight. Just 1 cup of raw mulberries has only 60 calories, is high in fiber, and has a high water content. Eating Mulberries covers a wide variety of nutrients that your daily diet requires. The immune system is no stranger to Mulberries either. Mulberries contain alkaloids that activate macrophages. Macrophages are white blood cells that stimulate the immune system, putting it on high active alert against health threats that may be active within the human body. Mulberries contain Zea-xanthin, an important dietary carotenoid selectively concentrates into the retinal macula lutea, where it thought to provide antioxidant functions and protects the retina located in the eys from the harmful ultraviolet rays through light-filtering actions.

This amazing fruit not only does everything listed above but it also helps to regulate the blood sugar levels and prevents diabetes. Mulberry is thought to contain compounds that support balanced blood sugar levels. Traditional medicine in China, Trinidad and Tobago have all used mulberry leaves to promote balanced blood sugar levels. Because mulberries are high in fiber it acts as a mild laxative.

The Skinny on Essential Amino Acids

NutraCap Admin

Essential Amino Acids are a combination of nine different essential amino acids in which the body cannot produce on its own. These Essential Amino Acids are mostly found in food and outside supplementation. They can be found in most meats, eggs, fish, and some plant sources such as chia seeds. The nine different amino acids found in Essential Amino Acids are leucine, isoleucine, valine, histidine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, and tryptophan. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein which are crucial in our everyday diets. Essential Amino Acids help us recover as well as aid in building muscle and providing overall health support.

Normally Essential Amino Acids come in the form of powder. Occasionally they do come in pill form like other dietary supplements. Essential Amino Acids also do not contain any calories when they are in the raw form. Most people who supplement with Essential Amino Acids prefer them in the raw form because of the added value of no extra calories all while providing the benefits that these amino acids contain.

Although many people are not familiar with Essential Amino Acids, many are familiar with certain ingredients found in Essential Amino Acids. Some of these ingredients may include leucine, isoleucine, and valine. These are the ingredients located in Branch Chain Amino Acids. Although Branch Chain Amino Acids are more popular Essential Amino Acids look much better on paper. Both of these Amino Acid supplements have many of the same effects but the one thing EAAs have over BCAAs is that it has 9 amino acids while Branch Chain Amino Acids only have 3.

What EAAs can do for you as an athlete who weigh trains or performs cardiovascular activity is prevent any muscle catabolism that might occur. Essential Amino Acids contain no calories therefore if one is in a fasted state the benefit of having no calories is that it does not bring you out of your fasted state. This helps regulate glucose and blood sugar levels which can equal more fat burning due to tapping into fat stores while you are in a fasted state. You can also use Essential Amino Acids in your intra workout drink as well which helps repair muscle and prevent catabolism even while you are training a specific muscle group. This can lead to faster muscle growth and better recovery for your training regimen to help you make quicker progress.

Supplementing with EAAs can be beneficial for anyone who exercises or adheres to a decent diet routine. This supplement while not as popular as Branch Chain Amino Acids is still making headway in the fitness community. While Essential Amino Acids may never be as popular as Branch Chain Amino Acids there is no debating on the benefits of this great ingredient.

Here at NutraCap Labs we offer Essential Amino Acids as one of our premium ingredients. Let us help you formulate your next product using this ingredient for your supplement line. To get the process started visit us online at

Change Your Body Composition With 5 HTP

NutraCap Admin

5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptamine) is also known as serotonin. This ingredient is a neurotransmitter which is synthesized in the body from the amino acid, tryptophan which then converts to 5 HTP. Serotonin is mostly found in the gut, platelets and central nervous system of the human body. In the gut, serotonin controls the movement of the intestines. Some of the serotonin secreted from these specialized gastrointestinal cells move into the blood and is stored in platelets. The rest of the serotonin naturally secreted in the body is found in the neurons of the central nervous system where it acts as a neurotransmitter which regulates things such as mood, sleep and appetite as well as contributing to memory and learning.

The kinds of food we eat affect the levels of 5 HT within the gut. This happens due to the production of serotonin which is solely dependent on the amount of amino acids available. Those foods that contain more tryptophan than leucine and phenylalanine increase the levels of serotonin because tryptophan is used for synthesizing 5 HTP. In the brain, serotonin binds to another subclass of 5 HT receptors in cells that secrete dopamine. This then counters the effects of dopamine which results in the suppression of appetite or will to want to eat. 5 HTP also indirectly controls blood sugar levels and growth by regulating the secretion and release of insulin and insulin-like growth factor. IGF 1 has been shown in many studies to help with reducing body fat and reshaping the body composition with moderate exercise.

5 HTP is widely used to help with obesity or the reduction in body fat. 5 HTP increases production of serotonin. Serotonin levels in the nervous system are essential for so many aspects of our daily lives. Serotonin is responsible for feelings of well-being, satisfaction and for normal sleep patterns. Lower levels of Serotonin have been shown to lead to diseases such as obesity. This is where 5 HTP comes into play by helping to regulate or suppress hormones that help with appetite control. Serotonin also helps play an important role in controlling mood, sleep, appetite, and metabolism. All of these things are vital to living a healthy lifestyle.

Some studies show that the hectic modern lifestyle of stress and bad eating habits lowers serotonin levels in the body. It is known that irritability, aggression, impatience, anxiety and worrying cause the body to release serotonin a rapid pace. When the body releases copious amounts of Serotonin it then needs to be replenished by the body which will from the food you eat. Serotonin can be found in foods such as oats, meat, fish, turkey, chicken, and nuts. It is also mostly found in things that people crave quite often such as chocolate, milk, and yogurt. When people crave foods with lots of fats and crabs this leads to things causing weight gain, depression, headaches, and muscle aches. 5 HTP is a supplement that paid with moderately good eating habits can be shown to be very beneficial in keeping one healthy. The supplement industry is now finding that by adding 5 HTP to amino acid supplements and other products can promote more exercise and a healthier lifestyle.

Here at NutraCap Labs we have 5 HTP as one of our listed ingredients. Let us walk you through how to use 5 HTP in your next product for your supplement line. To get the process started visit today.

All about Maltodextrin

NutraCap Admin

You may not be aware that Maltodextrin is one of the most popular components in almost all weight-gainer or mass gainer products. This ingredient has a significant effect on the enzymatic process which allows individuals to perform better during exercise process as well as keep the muscles fuller in between exercise routines. This is a natural ingredient which is highly useful especially for athletes and bodybuilders and it comes without the risk of side effects like some other products.

Maltodextrin is a complex carbohydrate that helps individuals perform better and provides more endurance to cope with the demands of heavy stress on the body. Despite being a carbohydrate, it functions more by rapidly degrading the enzymatic process. Maltodextrin supplements are usually added to carbohydrate products as well to provide a quick way to replenish carbohydrate stores that may have been depleted during exercise. Maltodextrin carries about 4 calories per gram just like any other carbohydrate. This ingredient is a very good natural source of energy source that facilitates rapid delivery and absorption of important nutrients by the skeletal muscle tissue. This way the body can replenish muscle glycogen that may have been lost during the exercise routine.

Maltodextrin comes from cornstarch and is very easily digestible in the human body. The process is very similar to what occurs inside the body when digesting other carbohydrates as well. Some forms of maltodextrins are polymers of dextrose that are also referred to as glucose polymers coming in the form of dried powders. These particular powders do not contain much fat, fiber or protein although some products are highly known for having soluble fiber and is very useful in reducing fat and excess weight being carried by the body. The majority of these powders are simply carb based and are used to fill glycogen stores within the body.

Maltodextrin is not a very sweet tasting powder like others. Ingredients like Maltodextrin are found in many weight gainer products which help ectomorph body types put on weight when their body refuses to. These weight-gainer or mass gainer supplements contain more calories than normal protein powders to help individuals move up in terms of weight and muscle and consume more than their average daily calorie intake without having to eat so much in their regular meals that may not be providing enough fuel to help them reach the desired weight they are trying to get to.

Maltodextrin has a bland taste and mixes very well with different types of liquids. It also helps with the ability to improve mixture with protein and other liquids. This is why many bodybuilders or fitness athletes prefer maltodextrin because they can mix it with most anything and take it on the go with them throughout a busy day.

Maltodextrin is best mixed with about 12-16ox of water in a shaker cup to help give a fine mixture after shaking it up. You may also blend it with protein powder since maltodextrin can improve the protein supplement’s ability to mix while the protein’s flavor can improve maltodextrin’s taste. Consume the mix pre-workout, during workout or post-workout to provide enough energy to last all exercises or to quickly replenish glycogen and carbohydrate stores.

What Is Carb 10?

NutraCap Admin

You may be familiar with many of the popular sources for carbohydrates used post workout or intra workout such as high branched cyclic dextrin, maltodextrin, oat starch powder, waxy maize starch, and dextrose. However a new form of carbohydrate breaking on to the scene that is fast acting and very easy to digest through the gut. While all of these carbohydrates do a great job of shuttling nutrients into the muscle cells and replenish glycogen stores the one side effect they do have is a massive spike in insulin. This is where carb 10 comes in. Carb 10 offers all of the great properties of the other carbohydrates such as shuttling nutrients and replenishing glycogen stores however there is no insulin spike.

Over the years the thought that you need to spike insulin to shuttle nutrients into the muscle cells during or post workout some research shows that this may not be the case after all. Two different studies examined the impact of using fast acting carbs during the post workout window (Anabolic Window) and both of them showed that it did not lead to increased protein synthesis or prevent muscle breakdown as some may have thought. When using a fast digesting carb source as your pre workout or intra workout fuel to assist with power during the workout a massive insulin spikes comes with that which can potentially leave some people feeling lethargic or give you an energy crash later on after the workout.

Carb 10 uses legume based startch that is derived from peas for its source of fast acting carbohydrates. While it is much like highly branched cyclic dextrin in the fact that both of them have low osmolality that helps speed up gastric emptying which helps prevent carbs from sitting around in your stomach which gives you that bloated feeling or a slower heavier feeling than you normally have. Carb 10 ensures that carbohydrate pass through your stomach and on to your intestines where they are then absorbed and shuttled into your muscles where they are needed to fuel. However while the two have many similarities the most glaring difference is that carb 10 does not cause a spike in insulin. When compared with other mainline sources of carbohydrates carb 10 had a 27 percent lower blood glucose response along with a 82 percent lower insulin response (insulin spike). Carb 10 is showing that it will give you the strength to push heavier weights, quicker recovery, and fuller muscles without the insulin spike.
