Pyrroloquinoline quinone was discovered as the third coenzyme for oxidoreductases next to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) in 1979. In 2003, Researchers of Riken reported the possibility that Pyrroloquinoline quinone is the 14th vitamin in mammals. Pyrroloquinoline quinone has potent anti-oxidative and nerve protective activities. We have established our original manufacturing technology of Pyrroloquinoline quinone by fermentation of bacteria, and put it on the market as a research reagent.
Recently, it was found that Pyrroloquinoline quinone improved memory and learning capacity in rats.
Pyrroloquinoline quinone has great potential as a safe ingredient of dietary supplement for the brain.
