Unlike ordinary PQQ supplements, VitaPQQ-SR features MicroPQQ, a special micronized, 8 hour sustained-release matrix using patent-pending MicroActive® technology.
Delivers sustained release for over 8 hours- While regular PQQ almost entirely leaves the bloodstream 8 hours after administration, MicroPQQ remains active for a longer period.
Achieve higher levels of PQQ over time- One hour after administration blood levels of PQQ were higher for MicroPQQ than regular PQQ and stayed that way for the remainder of the test period.
Maintains 2x more bioavailable than regular PQQ- Since MicroPQQ spends more time in the bloodstream than regular PQQ, the body begins to absorb and utilize it twice as much.
VitaPQQ®-SR features PQQ (as MicroPQQ) in a micronized, sustained-release matrix made with patent-pending MicroActive® technology, so the PQQ is released over time. A pilot human study showed that compared with regular PQQ, MicroPQQ achieves higher blood levels over time, delivers sustained release over 8 hours and is 2x more bioavailable.
As we age, it is especially important to support blood circulation, protect against cell oxidation, and minimize inflammation from physical exertion. Since blood carries oxygen and nutrients to every cell of the body, when it doesn’t circulate properly, it can...View full product details

Q: Does PQQ interact with any medications?
A: There have not been any documented interactions between PQQ and other medications. However, please consult with a medical professional if you do have any specific concerns about possible interactions with medications you are taking.
Q: What is the difference between CoQ10 and PQQ?
A: Both CoQ10 and PQQ play separate roles in the body’s production of energy, specifically relating to mitochondria – the tiny structures within cells that produce energy.* PQQ is a nutrient that works to protect existing mitochondria from damage and promote mitochondrial biogenesis (i.e. the production of new mitochondria).* CoQ10 is a vitamin-like substance present in virtually every cell of the human body that aids in the mitochondria’s production of energy.
I've only been taking this for a month now, along with Ubiquinol from Mercola (if Quality of Life Labs offered Ubiquinol I would buy it from them) and I do notice a difference. I feel more competent, like I can read a complex article and understand it. I've been taking it 3x/day since my ubiquinol is not SR. This makes it very expensive - they should offer it in larger size bottles at a discount. Or, combine it with Ubiquinol in a SR formulation.
