Supplementation with PQQ decreased biomarkers of inflammation and oxidation and increased markers of mitochondrial activation in a small trial in humans. Previous studies have also demonstrated that PQQ improved mitochondrial efficiency in humans. The major source of PQQ is from fruits and vegetables. PQQ has a potent antioxidant capacity and has 20,000 catalytic cycles, as compared to 4 for ascorbic acid.

    How is this different than Ubiquinol QH? I’ve seen the 2 combined in the same bottle and I’m wondering why that would be the case

      All the more reason to make natto a daily addition to a healthy diet. It is a great source of PQQ as well as vitamin K2, beneficial bacteria and fiber for the gut biome. It is cheaper than supplements, easy to prepare and after a period of adjustment quite tasty. For those unable to acquire a taste for natto I find putting a package in a smoothie or soup really tones down the flavor and texture that some find unpleasant.

        I eat natto daily and enjoy it.

        Honestly, i do not understand the resistance to natto as it seems like a legitimate superfood.

        I hope Rhonda will comment on daily natto…

            I eat natto directly from the styrofoam clamshell package, with a fork. I sometimes stir in the mustard that is packaged with it, sometimes not. I never use the soy syrup, also in the package.

            I guess some people find natto unappetizing but I cannot understand that. I like it.

            It has micro-nutrients beyond the vitamin K2-MK7.

            I eat 30 to 45 grams most every day.

            You’ll have to find an Asian market to buy it. Experiment with the various brands. I think you’ll like it.
