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
Curcumin, the active constituent of turmeric, is one of the most promising ingredients for promoting a healthy inflammation response.* While short-term inflammation is a normal part of immune response, long-term inflammation may increase oxidative stress and contribute to the aging...View full product details
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is one of the most intensively studied cardio-protective nutrients, which can also increase overall energy and act as a powerful antioxidant against free radicals.* Because standard CoQ10 is poorly absorbed, a number of technologies have been developed...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.
Q: Is it possible for the polymers in the formula to bio accumulate over time?
A: The polymers like HPMC are not absorbed by the system. HPMC is a soluble fiber that is also not fermentable by the colon bacteria. Beta cyclodextrin is also not absorbed from the stomach and small intestines. It can be broken down by the enzyme amylase to form open chain sugars and glucose. Carnuaba wax is highly insoluble and is not absorbed. So, all the polymers are eliminated from the GI tract, no chance of bioaccumulation.
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.
I have a mitochondrial myopathy and this formulation, along with the coq10, works wonders. Highly recommend.
I love this product. Stable energy throughout the day. I’ve been using it for years
I have been using PQQ for 5 months now. It works very well at increasing energy by stimulating mitochondria production within the cells of the body.
