elevATP®, a combination of ancient peat and a proprietary apple extract, has been shown in clinical studies to increase serum levels of mitochondrial adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy currency of the body.
ATP is commonly known as the powerhouse of the cell. The human body utilizes it to power an incredible amount of biological processes. ATP is formed by the breakdown of stored food molecules such as carbohydrates and fats when energy is needed by cells and other metabolic reactions. So calories and metabolism are what provide the resources to create ATP.
Some research has been done on consuming ATP directly to increase internal levels, however it has mixed results and does not survive well and is broken down by the digestive system. elevATP® takes a different approach. It uses a wide combination of minerals and bioactive compounds from ancient peat and apple skin extract.
elevATP® is not exogenous ATP, but rather an ingredient that helps the body provide higher levels of ATP via its own internal mechanisms. In this way, elevATP® promotes non-stimulatory energy from the body’s own mitochondria.
There have been multiple studies completed on this ingredient. In a whole blood analysis, "a single treatment of elevATP® at a serving of 150 mg resulted in a significant increase of blood level of total ATP; with no concomitant increase in blood ROS or serum lactate and a reduction of total mTOR levels in blood."
In a resistance trained body composition study , "Daily supplementation with a proprietary blend of ancient peat and apple extracts may be beneficial for enhancing the hypertrophic effects of resistance training on skeletal muscle without augmenting body fat content or safety parameters. Therefore, strength athletes, bodybuilders, and contact sport athletes may have an interest using this supplement. It is possible that this effect is exerted via increased blood flow, anabolic signaling, and/or enhanced energy status."
In a strength and power output study, "The proprietary blend of ancient peat and apple extracts were capable of increasing lower body and total strength as well as lower body power output compared at an equal-volume, visually-identical placebo. Moreover, the supplement was able to prevent performance decrements commonly associated with increased training volume and overreaching."
This unique approach to increasing power output and endurance is why we included it in our Electrolyte Endurance Powder formula.
