Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ), often called methoxypyrimidine, is a vital redox cofactor and antioxidant. It is present in soil and some foods like kiwi fruit, as well as in human breast milk.

This PQQ-containing enzyme is called a quinone protein. For example, Glucose dehydrogenase is a quinone protein that acts as a glucose sensor. PQQ stimulates bacterial growth.

PQQ, taken as a dietary supplement, is said to promote mitochondrial biogenesis. PQQ is an essential nutrient for mammals and is important for immune function.

Pyrroloquinoline Quinone Function

  • Antioxidant

PQQ is an antioxidant and, according to research, it is more successful at combating free radicals than vitamin C.

  • Mitochondrial dysfunction

The mitochondria are the energy core of cells. Any problems with the mitochondria can lead to diabetes, heart problems, and cancer. But luckily, there are steps we can take to prevent mitochondrial damage, like exercising, having a balanced diet, and reducing stress.

Additionally, research on animals has shown that PQQ supplements can help to correct mitochondrial problems and even create new mitochondria.

  • Sleep and mood

PQQ may help with better, longer sleep. It can also improve mood by relieving fatigue.

  • Increasing Cell Energy

Because mitochondria produce energy for cells, and PQQ helps mitochondria work more efficiently, there is an overall increase in energy in cells. This is the mitochondrial mechanism of pyrroloquinoline quinone. Unused cellular energy is diverted to other parts of the body.

If your body lacks motivation throughout the day, or if you feel tired or lethargic, increasing the strength of your PPQ is essential for you. In one study, individuals who reported having energy problems showed significantly lower levels of fatigue after taking PQQ.

  • Preventing cognitive decline

As research progresses, scientists have found that nerve growth factor (NGF) can promote growth and healing. Meanwhile, PQQ has been shown to have a positive effect on NGF and increase nerve growth by 40 times.

NGF plays a key role in the formation and maintenance of new neurons, and can also restore damaged neurons that may impede cognitive function. Neurons are cells that send information to the brain so that it can communicate with the rest of the body.

By increasing the number and quality of neurons, cognition can be enhanced. Therefore, PQQ provides a short-term improvement in cognitive function.

  • Supporting cardiovascular health

As a powerful antioxidant, pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) provides mitochondria support and encourages proper cellular oxygen utilization. PQQ has been shown in studies to support myocardial function, and by extension, heart health. In addition, by restoring vitality, PQQ prevents oxidative stress.
