Product Description - Source Naturals PQQ Mind 30 Tablets
PQQ is a newly discovered micronutrient that is naturally found in foods such as soybeans, parsley, and green pepper. Recent preclinical research suggests that as an antioxidant it may profoundly impact nerves and neurological health. Human studies indicate it may help improve cognitive function. PQQ supplementation also promotes mitochondrial biogenesis, which may contribute to slowing the aging process and increasing energy levels.
According to researcher Calliandra B. Harris as reported in the Journal of Biochemistry, dietary pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) led to reduced inflammation evidenced by detecting significantly decreased levels of plasma C-reactive protein, interleukin (IL)-6, and urinary methylated amines such as trimethylamine N-oxide, and changes in urinary metabolites consistent with enhanced mitochondria-related functions1.
PQQ was discovered more than 40 years ago and research shows antioxidant property, cardioprotection, neuro protection, improvement of neonatal growth and reproductive performance2. PQQ has been shown in mice to have antioxidant properties that protect against acute liver damage2, 3.
A deficiency of dietary PQQ may result in decreased fertility and slower rates of neonatal growth according to Satyabrata Ghosh, along with a reduction in general fitness, and defect in immune function2.
Ghosh also concludes PQQ is an effective cardioprotective agent. PQQ act as a free radical scanvenger in ischemic myocardium. Additionally, a protective effect on brain injury in rodents suggests that PQQ may have potential use in the therapy of stroke (Jensen et al., 1994). Clinical application of PQQ suggested that either preventatively giving PQQ in high risk patient or treatment at the time of an active ischemic episode could be of benefit by reducing infract size and ventricular arrhythmias2, 3.
PQQ also exhibits protective qualities against neurotoxicicity. It has a potent superoxide–scavenging activity compared to both antioxidant and vitamins. PQQ helps maintain plasma membrane integrity, inhibiting DNA
fragmentation and preventing the disruption of mitochondrial membrane potential along with a protective effect agains oxidative stress. PQQ's protection against oxidative stress on brain neurons suggests protection against neuron degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson2.

Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned - for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life - simply didn't exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs, and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula®, now the industry’s #1 immune support product.
Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple™, Mega-Kid Multiple™, Inflama-Rest™, the Skin Eternal™ line, Higher Mind™, Essential Enzymes™, Male Response™, and more.
Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas™ help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, we evaluate the underlying causes of system imbalances and then provide targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Our line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms.
Our nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness℠ is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
