As the lifespan of the population increases, there is increased attention on healthspan, which is essential for a higher quality of life for the aging population. Healthspan is the period of one’s life that is healthy and free from serious diseases that reduce the quality of life. Supplementation can be vital to supporting a longer healthspan, and consumers are doing their research on innovative solutions.

Key Solutions Include:

ErgoActive® Ergothioneine

A LONGEVITY VITAMIN THAT WORKS INSIDE CELLSϯ

Proposed as a longevity vitamin by Dr. Bruce Ames, L-ergothioneine is a potent antioxidant that works inside cells to combat oxidative stress.1 While ergothioneine is synthesized mainly in mushrooms, fungus and soil bacteria, human cells express a transporter highly specific to ergothioneine. Despite not being produced in the body, ergothioneine is present in nearly all human cells, suggesting its significance in supporting human health. An in vitro study demonstrates that ErgoActive ® preserved telomere length and reduced the rate of telomere shortening under oxidative stress conditions, supporting the benefit of ergothioneine for healthy aging.2 Emerging science shows potential cognitive, immune, prostate and cardiovascular health benefits.

Blue California’s ErgoActive® Ergothioneine is:
  • Produced using a proprietary fermentation process
  • US FDA no objection to notification of self-affirmed GRAS (GRN No. 734)
    No-Objection Letter from the US FDA to its GRAS notification, GRN 916
  • GMO-free
  • Water-soluble
  • Neutral in taste, color and odor

PQQActive® Pyrroloquinoline Quinone (PQQ)

A LONGEVITY VITAMIN FOR MITOCHONDRIAL HEALTHϮ

PQQ is a promising longevity vitamin and a powerful antioxidant that supports mitochondrial health and improves its efficiency. Synthesized by bacteria found in soil, PQQ enters plants via the roots in soil, thereby found in many plants and vegetables that enter the human diet. PQQ may stimulate the body’s natural energy production at the cellular level, and emerging science supports its role in cognitive health, cardiovascular health and liver support. PQQ may also be used in cosmetic and skincare applications, rejuvenating the skin for healthier and younger-looking skin.

Blue California’s PQQActive® PQQ is:
  • Produced using a proprietary fermentation process
  • 99% purity
  • GMO-free
  • Water-soluble

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)

Create heart smart formulations with CoQ10Ϯ

CoQ10 is an antioxidant made naturally in the body and also found in the diet. CoQ10 is considered essential for cellular energy production in the heart and muscles and is of particular importance in supporting cardiovascular health. While CoQ10 is produced in the body, levels of CoQ10 decrease with age. CoQ10 supplementation may help replenish decreased CoQ10 levels to support healthy aging, heart health and energy production.

Blue California’s CoQ10 is:
  • Produced using a proprietary fermentation process and microencapsulated
  • 10% and 40% active
  • GMO-free
  • Light yellow to yellow powder
  • Neutral in taste and odor

Vitamin K2 Menaquinone-4 (MK-4) and Menaquinone-7 (MK-7)

An essential vitamin supporting heart and bone healthϮ

Vitamin K consists of a group of fat-soluble vitamins that are considered essential to support human health. Known as menaquinone (MK), vitamin K2 is a type of vitamin K found in animal products and fermented foods. Vitamin K2 is a crucial vitamin for supporting heart and bone health. The two major forms of vitamin K2 are MK-4 and MK-7. The number denotes the number of isoprenoid residues in the side chain. MK-4 is naturally synthesized in mammalian cells and is the form that is most studied. MK-7 is naturally produced by fermentation and is discovered to have greater bioavailability. Blue California offers both MK4 and MK7 forms of vitamin K2 for your needs.

Blue California’s Vitamin K2 (MK-4 and MK-7) are:
  • Produced using a proprietary fermentation process
  • 1% active with Dicalcium Phosphate (DCP) or Maltodextrin
  • White to light yellow powder
  • Neutral in taste and odor

Pterostilbene and Pinostilbene

The secret to healthy agingϮ

Found in blueberries and grapes, pterostilbene and pinostilbene are polyphenolic compounds that help fight oxidative stress that contribute to cell damage associated with age associated conditions. Both these compounds are chemically related to resveratrol, which is the most extensively studied stilbene to support heart health, cognitive function, bone density and healthy blood glucose levels. Due to their unique molecular structures, pterostilbene and pinostilbene offer enhanced bioavailability compared to resveratrol.
