PQQ is a coenzyme with redox properties and high antioxidant capacity. It is found in many vegetables, including cabbage, carrots, and tomatoes, fruits including apples, bananas, and kiwis, and beverages including green tea, oolong tea, and whiskey, eggs, and milk. PQQ has also been detected in breast milk. PQQ disodium salt has been studied in various physiological and pharmacological aspects as a functional food ingredient. When taken orally, the concentration of PQQ in the blood reaches a peak about 2 hours after ingestion.


1. Functions of PQQ

Researchers around the world have previously conducted a large number of studies on PQQ disodium salt, proving that PQQ can increase muscle strength and physical function, prevent the decline of skeletal muscle strength, and promote skeletal muscle regeneration.

2.PQQ latest research

Researchers investigated the efficacy and safety of continuous supplementation with pqq disodium salt capsules for 12 weeks on muscle strength and physical function (motor function) in healthy Japanese men and women. The results showed that the PQQ disodium salt group had improved lower limb extension muscle strength and grip strength. There was a significant improvement (p < 0.01), and physical function in the 10-meter shuttle walk, 6-minute walk, and 10-meter walk tests was also significantly improved (p < 0.01). Continuous intake of PQQ disodium salt (21.5 mg/day) improved muscle strength and physical function (motor function) in healthy Japanese adult male and female volunteers. No adverse effects of PQQ supplementation were observed in the experiment.

This demonstrates that PQQ is a functional nutrient that can be safely used in daily life to maintain muscle strength and physical performance and prevent sarcopenia, frailty and other degenerative diseases in both young and older populations.
