The Tokyo-based Institute of Physical and Chemical Research has confirmed Pyrroloquinoline Quinone (PQQ), a substance discovered in 1979, can be categorized as a vitamin.

Mice deprived of PQQ suffer reduced fertility and roughened fur.

Vitamins having an important effect on mice usually acts in the same way in humans, the researchers said.

PQQ is the first new vitamin to be discovered since 1948.

It is thought to belong to the B-vitamin group.

Vitamins are defined as organic substances needed in small quantities for health and growth.

They must be obtained from food because they cannot be produced by the body.

PQQ is not usually found in multi-vitamin tablets.

The best source of PQQ discovered so far is natto, a pungent Japanese dish of fermented soybeans.

Other foods rich in PQQ are parsley, green tea, green peppers, kiwi fruit, and papaya.

Stacey's comment,

There is so much we have not discovered in regards to fertility and there is new information that comes up all the time.

But the one constant through it all is nutrition can enhance your fertility.

As long as you are absorbing nutrients appropriately, a good diet of balanced low glycemic carbs, proteins, and healthy fats are so important.

Instead of buying the supplements above, make it your goal to increase the natural sources of PQQ in your diet.

Natto is definitely an acquired taste but this wonderful vitamin can also be found in parsley, green tea, green peppers, kiwi fruit, and papaya.

So make sure you have these in your diet over the course of the week, and as long as your digestion is good, you will be absorbing some powerful nutrients to improve your fertility.

by Judith Newman

-- Today the number of women having their first child over thirty-five has increased by a bazillion fold or some equally scary large number.

Newman is the first to write a book that tells what it's really like when a trip to the drugstore entails the purchase of both diaper cream and wrinkle cream; when "getting your shots means both immunization and Botox.

You Make Me Feel Like an Unnatural Woman is not only about having children later in life: it's about what happens to a marriage—and to the spirit when even the most sought-after baby comes.

Wry, warm, and brutally honest, this is the book for any woman — whatever her age — who has awakened at 3AM to the insistent shrieks of her darling and thought: Oh man, I'm too old for this.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
