An essential “helper molecule” present in mitochondria, pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) is believed to facilitate a number of metabolic processes in the body and may benefit overall energy by:
- Enhancing energy production. One of PQQ’s major roles is to activate cell signaling pathways associated with energy, or ATP production.
- Antioxidant activity. PQQ’s potent antioxidant qualities seem to be particularly helpful for supporting mitochondria – the power-generating structures of cells.
