Pyrrologuinoline Quinone -- Pqq

It wasn't until 2003 that Takaoki Kasahara and Tadafumi Kato found that mice need PQQ to make an enzyme that degrades the amino acid lysine. So it appears to improve mice fertility and immune response, and so may do the same in us.

PQQ may stimulate growth of plants in hydroponic culture by stimulating a strain of Pseudomonas fluorescens bacterium.

The need for PQQ has not been established in people. PQQ deficient mice grow slowly, have fragile skin and a reduce immune response.

There have been no human trials of PQQ.

Natural sources of PQQ include some meat, natto (fermented soybeans), papayas, tea, parsley, green peppers and kiwi fruit.

There're no supplements of PQQ available. You get it from the food you eat or not at all. It's possible you can do quite well without it. Or that whatever it does for you can also be done by other, more commonly known nutrients.

Eat at least the five servings of fruit and vegetables the USDA says you should eat. Better yet, eat the nine or ten servings of fruit and vegetables that nutritionists think you should eat on a daily basis.
