    Hi guys, was just wondering if anyone has tried the supplement pqq, please? Brands and dosages and how long you took it and with what would be helpful to know.
    I understand it makes new mitochondria but it doesn't seem to get mentioned much alongside other mitochondrial supplements, which I've generally tried. I wondered if it could be a slow burner that takes a while to have a noticeable effect.
    Looking for something to help with brain fog and improve mental energy?

    I tried Jarrow BioPQQ and noticed some benefit in energy and cognition but had to stop taking it after a month due to headaches in the area of my brain stem. Headache is a common side effect with PQQ. I tried it again after a month and found that it worsened energy and thinking instead of improving them.

    Thanks for sharing your experience of pqq @PatJ . I just wanted to say to anyone who may get the idea to try pqq as a result of reading this thread, (not that there's been much to encourage you :)) to do some research first. I read somewhere it depletes your glutathione for example. (Sorry for lack of source)
