PQQ, or pyrroloquinoline quinone, is a water-soluble compound found from microbes in 1979. It can’t be produced by humans and although it is produced in small amounts by the gut microbes, it must be obtained predominantly from diet. Parsley, kiwi, green pepper, papaya and tofu are good sources of PQQ.
PQQ supports mitochondrial function. Mitochondria are responsible for the cellular energy metabolism, or cellular respiration. PQQ affects cell growth, development, differentiation and life span. PQQ has an effect mainly to brain health, but also on the metabolism of the whole body.
The active ingredient of Vitacell® PQQ, MGCPQQ®, is manufactured by the Japanese Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Company. MGCPQQ® is a water soluble compound produced by fermentation of Hyphomicrobium denitrificans strain CK-275. MGCPQQ® has received Novel Food status in the EU on 10.8.2018. It is the only PQQ that has a Novel Food status. The maximum daily dose is 20 mg.
