GRAS Approved PQQ

Updated: Feb 20

Pyrroloquinoline-Quinone Is More Than an Antioxidant

What is PQQ?

Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) is a naturally occurring compound that acts as a powerful antioxidant and redox cofactor in living cells. It's a relatively newly discovered micronutrient that has gained attention due to its potential health benefits.

PQQ supplements are claimed to support mitochondrial growth and health. This could result in other health benefits like improved cognitive function, heart health, and overall energy levels. However, more research is needed to fully understand its effects on humans.


Key Characteristics of PQQ

1. Supports brain health: 

PQQ is considered a nootropic, supporting brain function and health, especially as you age. Some studies suggest that PQQ, at doses between 10–20 mg per day, increases blood flow to the cerebral cortex in humans.

Evidence suggests that PQQ might be effective in helping repair brain tissue damage. For example, in the wake of a brain injury, PQQ has been reported to improve memory and blood circulation and protect the brain from neurodegeneration.

2. Improves cardiovascular function:

Because of its antioxidant properties and ability to support the mitochondria, PQQ may play a role in supporting heart health.

Some animal studies suggest this might be the case. For example, studies on mice have shown that a PQQ-deficient diet might result in heart failure, while supplementing with PQQ protects against heart disease. More research on humans is needed.

3. Anti-inflammatory:

Studies done on animals have shown that taking a PQQ supplement has resulted in decreased inflammation. One study found that PQQ was 10 to 100 times more effective than anti-inflammatory drugs.


Foods that contain PQQ

PQQ is found naturally in fruits and vegetables. The amount of PQQ in these foods varies depending on factors such as growing conditions and cooking methods. Therefore, it might be difficult to obtain enough PQQ from diet. Here is a list of foods that contain PQQ:

  • Fermented soybeans

  • Kiwi

  • Green peppers

  • Papaya

  • Tea

  • Spinach

  • Celery

  • Dark chocolate

  • Tomatoes
