PQQ - pyrroloquinoline quinone
Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) is an organic molecule discovered in 1979 by a U.S. researcher. PQQ is also known as methoxatine and is fairly new as a nutritional supplement.
Because it was initially thought that the human body could not create PQQ, it was classified as an essential micronutrient and vitamin. This turned out not to be entirely correct since the body produces PQQ at a rate of 100-400 nanograms per day. Despite PQQ not having the official status of "vitamin" it does share some common characteristics.
In the daily diet PQQ is found in fermented products, spinach, parsley, and green tea. Breast milk contains relatively high concentrations as well. PQQ is even found in stardust!
As CoQ10, PQQ is a bio-active co-enzyme which plays a role in oxidation and redox reactions (electron transport), but in contrast to CoQ10 it is located in a different part of the cell. The highest concentrations in the body are found in organs that require the most energy, like the brain, liver and heart.
The working area of PQQ is therefore in the mitochondria, where energy (ATP) is produced in the body. The specific activity of PQQ via different mechanisms has an effect on the functioning of the nervous system, heart, brain, and many others systems, structures and functions throughout the body. PQQ is therefore very interesting and its effects on the body ubiquitous.
- PQQ is a powerful antioxidant up to 5,000 times more powerful than vitamin C.
- PQQ activates nuclear receptors involved in the formation and functioning of mitochondria.
- Stimulates the production of the newly discovered hormone "Irisin" (Fibronectin type III domain-containing protein 5).
- Works synergistically with ubiquinol, R-Alpha Lipoic Acid and Acetyl-L-Carnitine.
