Vital Fuel is a unique formula that supplies ingredients which are the building blocks for energy production and ATP recycling at the cellular level. More efficient energy production at the cellular level supports cardiovascular output, reduces fatigue, increases physical stamina, maximizes oxygen utilization and improves athletic performance and endurance.
Every cell in the body contains organelles called Mitochondria that finalize the conversion of the sugars and fats consumed by individuals into molecules of ATP. Adenosine triphosphate or ATP is a high energy molecule that is composed of an adenosine ring, a ribose sugar and three phosphates groups. When a phosphate group gets removed from the ATP molecule energy gets released. The body uses that newly released energy to perform the majority of its biological processes. Proper ATP production and mitochondria functioning is absolutely essential for sustaining life and healthy aging. There are approximately 1020 molecules of ATP produced every second in the human body. Exercising will increase the body’s demand for more ATP production because the energy released from the removal of the phosphate group on the ATP molecule allows muscles to contract.
The ingredients in Vital Fuel both support the production of ATP by supplying the raw materials to drive manufacturing as well as providing ingredients that support the metabolic processes that govern the conversion of sugars and fats to ATP. D-Ribose is a sugar molecule that is actually one of the building blocks of ATP. Studies have shown that supplementation of D-Ribose may be helpful in relieving symptoms associated with chronic fatigue and low cardiac output. CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant that protects cell membranes and lipoproteins from oxidation as well as an essential cofactor for components of the electron transport chain within the mitochondria. Malic acid is involved in proper glucose metabolism and energy production in the muscles. Acetyl L-Carnitine helps to deliver fatty acids to the mitochondria so they can be converted into ATP. Rhodiola has been used for centuries by Russian athletes to enhance physical performance and endurance, improve mental concentration and provide cardiovascular support. Finally two proteolytic enzymes, Bromelain and Protease, have been added to this comprehensive formula in order to decrease muscle soreness and recovery time after intense exercise.
