Pyrroloquinoline Quinone (“PQQ”) is a micronutrient once thought to be a vitamin. It has the ability to be a REDOX agent and is capable of circulating in the human body to continuously combat free radicals. With its ability to transfer electrons, PQQ is essential for the mitochondria to produce energy and it stimulates mitochondrial biogenesis. This biogenesis process has been linked to health benefits such as increased longevity and improved energy. Concentration of PQQ occurs naturally in many leafy greens and legumes, and it is the most concentrated in human milk.
