Peak Endurance: Product Information
Life begins and thrives at the cellular level. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the “energy currency of the body,” is the primary source of energy for every function that occurs within each cell of the body. If ATP is depleted, cells cease to function properly, resulting in many of the diseases we associate with stress or aging.
AIM Peak Endurance™ provides the only oral source of ATP, PEAK ATP®, clinically proven to elevate ATP levels within the body. AIM Peak Endurance™ is a grape electrolyte drink mix combining ATP (adenosine triphosphate), electrolytes, and B vitamins. It contains only one gram of sugar.
How does ATP work?
ATP increases energy levels without boosting your heart rate, which is what can occur with caffeine, ginseng, and ephedra products. The key to energy release within cells lies in the phosphate bonds within ATP molecules. When energy is needed, the bond between the second and third phosphate is broken releasing energy. This results in the formation of adenosine diphosphate (ADP). When food comes into the cell, the ADP takes the energy from the food and converts back to ATP. This process is called the “Krebs cycle.”
ATP is depleted with age or stress
Researchers at the Mayo Clinic have found that DNA damage over time may cause the loss of ATP. In fact, studies have shown that between the ages of 20 and 70, ATP levels are reduced by 50 percent.
Properly balanced electrolytes and added B vitamins
Most sport drinks only contain sodium, potassium, and chloride, or three of the five major electrolytes. AIM Peak Endurance™ contains all five major electrolytes adding calcium and magnesium to the list. Calcium regulates nerve impulse transmission, aids in smooth and skeletal muscle contraction, and plays a central role in synthesis and breakdown of muscle and liver glycogen. Magnesium is a key component of more than 300 enzymes including ATPase and an enzyme that is involved in the metabolism of muscle glucose and glucogenesis.
