Available from Swanson Health Products, PQQ (Pyrroloquinoline quinone) is a relatively newly discovered vitamin-like nutrient related to the B-vitamin family. This compound found in an array of healthy foods displays antioxidant activity and neuro-protective actions that make it ideal for cognitive support. Studies suggest PQQ supports healthy mitochondrial structure and function to help maintain healthy mental functions like recall, memory and cognition as we age.

PQQ has been shown to be at least 100 times more efficient than vitamin C and all phenolic compounds tested to date in redox cycling potential.1 PQQ is found in beans, potatoes, parsley, green tea and fermented foods, and it's also found in quite high amounts in human breast milk. In the body, PQQ is concentrated in vital organs that require high amounts of energy for optimal performance—organs like the brain and heart. Not surprisingly, PQQ is active within cellular mitochondria, the energy centers of cells. This has major implications for brain health, nervous system health and potentially other systems, structures and functions throughout the body, as it also displays antioxidant activity, neuroprotective action and cognitive benefits. The breadth of PQQ's potential benefits is nothing short of amazing. PQQ has been described as combining some of the best chemical features of vitamins C, B-2 and B- 6 (reducing potential, redox reactions and carbonyl reactivity, respectively) into one molecule.2 In this way, PQQ is capable of acting directly as an antioxidant and then being recycled by glutathione back into an active form, substantially extending its antioxidant capabilities.

Current research on PQQ is looking into how it may benefit brain health specifically, as scientists believe the brain is at most risk of mitochondrial function decline. In the research, PQQ has been shown to support healthy mitochondria as well as something called nerve growth factor, which is essential for the growth and maintenance of healthy neurons and branching nerve cells. This means PQQ may prove helpful in maintaining healthy brain function well into our advanced years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharpens memory I am 65 years old and have been using PQQ for about 6 months or more and believe this product has improved my long-term memory. If you would like to improve your long-term memory, I would encourage you to try this product for at least 60 days to see if it helps you. My overall thinking seems clearer also. I hope this product will benefit you as well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not sure what happened ? I bought this version of PQQ, and it had absolutely no effect! Which is strange , makes me wonder sometimes as to what Swanson Brand is actually selling sometime Went Back to JARROW's version of the same product...works like a charm !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The speed of the machinery at work I think it takes a while to build up in one's tissues,say,. After forgetting to take it for a few days, when I got the bottle on top of the microwave, the same day I noticed a giant difference at work where I effortlessly recalled all the elements I needed to attend to at that instant. At the end of today there was a nice mental second wind before the bell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good I bought this, and added it to my other vitamins and supplement routine, not really knowing what to expect. I didn't even try to see if there was any difference. But within a few days, I started noticing a definite, if subtle difference. It seemed like I had a more positive attitude, a little more energy, and felt a little more refreshed in the day. I have only been using it a few weeks, but so far, so good.
