Pyrroloquinoline Quinone (PQQ) is a micronutrient that provides powerful antioxidant activity for a strong defense against mitochondrial decay.
PQQ is a nutrient viewed as the latest advance in the area of mitochondrial bioenergetics. In 2010, researchers found that it not only protected mitochondria from oxidative damage but it also stimulated the growth of fresh mitochondrial.
Scientists have also discovered that PQQ has extraordinary molecular stability that allows it to carry out thousands of electron transfers without undergoing molecular breakdown. In recent research, it has proven especially effective in neutralizing the ubiquitous superoxide and hydroxyl radicals, which may make it more efficient than other nutrients with antioxidant activity in sustaining mitochondrial energy production.
Recent research also shows that PQQ is a potent growth factor in plants, bacteria, and higher organisms. In animal research, subjects deprived of PQQ showed stunted growth, compromised immune systems, impaired reproductive capability, and fewer mitochondria in their tissues.
