Boost your energy levels with ATP-Pro supplements
We all need energy to perform. Our bodies need energy to make new proteins, deliver nutrients and repair damaged cells, and that energy comes from a bio-energy molecule, known as ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP powers every thought, movement and action we make.
ATP is one of the most fundamental of all biomolecules. It is related to DNA and RNA, and it is essentially the power behind life. As we get older, ATP production declines, yet our bodies still need it. ATP is essentially the energy of life, and when ATP is low, energy is low.
ATP supplements can help by increasing our physical energy levels, improving muscle strength and stamina. Plus ATP supplements have also been shown to reduce back pain and increase mobility in older people, providing a youthful vigour.
If your energy levels are lagging, it can be down to any number of reasons, including vitamin or mineral deficiencies, allergies, infections, stress, physical inactivity or poor sleep. ATP supplements are a natural way of giving your body a boost when it is running on empty.
R-lipoic acid: a powerful antioxidant
R-lipoic acid (RLA), a type of alpha lipoic acid, is a powerful antioxidant that occurs naturally in every living organism. It’s one of the vital nutrients required by the mitochondria in order to produce the body’s main energy source, ATP.
Each Mito-Pro supplement capsule provides the necessary nutrients – the equivalent of consuming large amounts of animal liver, yeasts, and spinach – to boost the body’s store of RLA.
Having a good supply of antioxidants such as RLA in the body is important for removing harmful free radicals - highly reactive and cell damaging molecules - created as a result of oxidative stress associated with breathing oxygen and producing energy.
Oxidative stress not only causes damage to the body in association with aging, but it has also been implicated in the cause of diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s. RLA enhances immunity and protects parts of the body (especially nerves) from oxidative damage. It can even reverse the effects of oxidative damage to enzymes and DNA.
The benefits of RLA are not limited to energy production and cell repair. It is also known to:
lower glucose levels and improve conditions of insulin sensitivity
help regulate lipid and carbohydrate metabolism
provide neuroprotective benefits
improve chelation (the process of removing heavy metals from the body).
Acetyl-L-Carnitine protects and increases the brain receptors that would otherwise deteriorate with age
Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) is a naturally occurring amino acid that is related to L-carnitine. ALC has been proven in human clinical trials to treat age related mental decline. As such, it is being used in high doses and in combination with other Nootropics to treat senile dementias.
Effects included enhanced cognitive and motor ability and a lessening of depression. ALC has also been shown to help remove lipofuscin a potassium age build-up (see Centrophenoxine for further details). Individuals discover that their short-term memory improves and their attention to detail is enhanced.
Clinical trials have revealed that ALC increases blood oxygen, inhibits oxygen starvation, restores blood pressure and is showing a possible beneficial effect on sperm mobility. In addition, recent observations demonstrate that ALC may have beneficial results on those suffering strokes, Alzheimer's disease, Down's syndrome and various neuropathies.
Perhaps most importantly for anti-aging, ALC has been shown to improve the condition of the essential mitochondria in animals. These are the vital source of energy production in the body.
How does ATP-Pro work?
ATP acts as a chemical ‘battery’ storing energy when it is not needed, and releasing it instantly when the body requires it.
ATP does not come ready made in the food we eat – rather the cells in our body must each generate their own ATP. This is done through the digestion of carbohydrates, fats and proteins in our food. Following digestion, glucose molecules, fatty acids and amino acids are transported into the bloodstream, where cells convert them into ATP to power their every activity.
ATP powers reaction in cells, giving us the energy we need for almost every function of the body. The heart uses energy to pump blood, the kidneys to filter waste, the brain to conduct electrical nerve impulses and the lungs to take in oxygen and drive out carbon dioxide.
In addition to this, our bodies need energy to perform everyday functions, such as walking, talking, lifting – even working at a computer. ATP powers cellular work behind every one of these daily tasks. In fact it is estimated that ATP provides 95% of all cellular energy throughout the body.
What are ATP-Pro supplements useful for?
ATP production declines with age, which is why the average 50 year old does not have the same level of energy they did at the age of 20. Aging depletes our energy levels, yet our bodies’ demand for ATP continues apace.
ATP supplements are a safe, natural way of restoring that all-important feeling of energy and vitality we associate with our youth. If your energy levels are lagging, ATP supplements can help by giving you a boost.
ATP supplements can also help with specific conditions, where ATP is lacking, such as multiple sclerosis and chronic fatigue syndrome. Some of the many conditions ATP supplements are used for include:
Convalescence following operations and serious illness
Sports medicine – physical strain and fatigue of all kinds.
What is the recommended ATP-Pro dosage?
The recommended ATP dosage varies according to age and medical condition, but is generally as follows:
ATP for injection – 2-4 cc daily by deep intramuscular injection (or by intravenous injection when dissolved in a glucose serum).
ATP under the tongue – 30mg to 90mg per day, taken in three divided doses (ie 1x10mg to 3x10mg three times per day). It is important to ensure ATP is absorbed through the mouth membranes and not swallowed.
With injections, ATP side effects are generally limited to hot flushes and rash/discomfort at the site of the injection. Other than this, ATP supplements are considered to be very safe, and ATP side effects are rare.
ATP is a vital component of life, and ATP supplements offer a natural way of improving energy levels, and restoring youthful vigour.
