Short for “pyrroloquinoline quinone,” PQQ is an essential nutrient that the human body must obtain from food. PQQ is naturally present in soil and is also produced by soil bacteria. Plants absorb it, and we obtain it by eating the plants. In addition, some of the bacteria in fermented foods and beverages make PQQ.

Found in all tissues of the body, PQQ is concentrated in breast milk and is a required growth factor for development. Animal studies show that a deficiency stunts growth, impairs immunity, and causes reproductive and metabolic issues.
