What is ATP?
Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is the universal unit of energy used in all living cells. This molecule is produced and broken down in metabolic processes in all living systems. That is to say if you are eating vitamins, minerals or any other food stuff ATP is needed to allow this nutrients to be used in the body to feed the cell, if you suffer from a metabolic disease such as cachexia, fibromyalgia or adrenal fatigue just to name a few, your are ATP deficient.
Mary from CO:
I was at the end stages of Cachexia and was wasting away. The only way I was able to see scenery other than my bed was by my husband picking me up and carrying me from room to room. After only 3 days of ATP I was mobile again.
Ron from Canada:
My son was sent home to recover from chemo treatments for his cancer. He was cachexic and did not have the energy to continue with the treatments. He was feeling better the first day he took ATP and on the third day was up an walking around the house
Ruth from AZ:
I had no energy and was listless. I could hardly go and felt as if I were hanging on by a thread. I began taking ATP, Endocrine Mender and Formula 103X. Within a week I was painting my bedroom. I could not believe how much better I felt. Thank you so much for your wonderful products.
Jim from VA:
My wife was bedridden from Cachexia when I decided to start the TumorX Cachexia Protocol. After only one week of taking ATP she was up, walking around and playing with the grandkids. Thanks for giveing my wife her quality of life back.
Mae from GA:
I had dealt with Fibromyalgia for a while when I decided to try the BioAnue Products. I had chronic lack of energy and even getting out of a chair was very difficult for me. I couldn't work in my garden and flowers because after only a short time of bending I would be down for two weeks. After taking ATP along with other BioAnue products, my fibromyalgia is 85% cured.
Benefits of ATP Supplementation.
Recent studies, in addition to the decades of history of ATP as a medicine in several countries, revealed that ATP taken orally exerts a number of beneficial actions in the body. ATP has been shown to affect the functionality and health of the following:
• Six healthy males ages 29-32 were orally administered 60mg of ATP. Electrocardiograms were performed 3 hours after the ATP was administered showed an increase in ET(ejection time)/PEP(pre-ejection period) value from 3.27 to 3.53 which indicates improvement in left ventricle function. An increase in cardiac output was also noted as blood flow volume at the ejection site increased from 252ml/sec to 292ml/sec
• ATP capsules were adminstered to 21 patients with heart diseases. Subjective symptoms improved in 88% of patients. Objective symptoms (findings on electrocardiograms, etc.) improved in 70% of patients.
• A double-blind study of 49 patients age 35 or younger who had been diagnosed with accomodating eye fatigue showed that ATP is effect in supporting ocular muscle function. One group was given ATP tablets and the other was given a palcebo cornstarch tablet. After three weeks objective symptoms such as accomadation time and bloodshot eyes were improved in 84% of patients who received ATP compared with 50% of patients that were given the placebo.
• Forty patients with Meniere's Disease and other types of peripheral vertigo were divided into 2 groups. One group was given 300mg of ATP and the other 450mg orally for a total of 4 weeks. After four weeks the results were as follows:
–Improvements in vertigo were observed in 80% of patients who took 300mg and 95% of patients that took 450mg.
–Tinnitus was improved in 56.3% of patients given 300mg and 88.9% of patients given 450mg.
• At 1 to 2 hours after placing brain slices isolated from patients with epilepsy in a magnesium free medium, a epileptiform electric signal is produced. The incidence of a signal in a buffered solution containing adenosine was 30 to 90% that in the control group. This suggests that adenosine may be important in brain functions.
Energy Currency, the Science of ATP
Known as the ‘energy currency of life,’ ATP can store and transport the energy we need to do just about everything that we do. Essentially all metabolic functions of living cells require energy for operation and obtain it directly from stored ATP. Every cell in the human body produces ATP as part of its metabolic function.
In fact 95% of the ATP produced in the body is produced in the mitochondria. For this reason, ATP is often referred to as the power house of the cell, although ATP has several other equally important functions as well.
All molecules contain energy, stored in the molecular structure itself. A portion of that energy can be used to do work. This is called free energy.
Oxidation of a molecule results in the release of free energy. Complete combustion (burning) of organic molecules, eg, releases all of the available free energy as heat. Reduction of a molecule requires an input of energy.
Energy can be transferred from one molecule to another by enzymes. The molecules that are converted by enzymes, that is, the reactants, are called substrates.
Nutrients are organic molecules that are ultimately derived from food sources. They start off as fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Enzymes such as pancreatic enzymes example in intermediate metabolism oxidize nutrient molecules to a form that can be converted to energy by mitochondria. Fats, carbohydrates and proteins are broken down to individual fatty acids, simple sugars and amino acids.
Phosphate Groups and Energy?
These molecules can transport energy because phosphate bonds contain a lot of potential energy, which is released when they are broken.
Energy is stored in the covalent bonds between phosphates, with the greatest amount of energy.
Humans /mammals Eat Energy Originally Obtained by Plants and such
Humans, cannot make organic compounds from inorganic sources. We must obtain useful compounds from organic sources by consuming plants and animals ect.
How Is ATP Actually Made?
ATP is produced by humans during a catabolic process known as cellular respiration. Because of this fact one would believe we could never become deficient in ATP, but this is not true, and when this deficiency occurs a cascade of problems will be evident Cachexia in late stage cancer patients, heart issues, just to name a few.
In cellular respiration food molecules are broken down and the released energy is transformed into ATP. Organisms catabolize (break down) carbohydrates, most commonly glucose, to ultimately make ATP and use if for anabolic cellular reactions.
Glucose catabolized by through the processes of aerobic respiration and anaerobic fermentation.
Aerobic respiration utilizes glycolysis, synthesis of acetyl-CoA, Krebs cycle, and electron transport chain; the end result being the complete breakdown of glucose into carbon dioxide and water. Through these catabolic reactions up to 34 molecules of ATP can be made from every molecule of glucose. Oxygen is a vital component of this highly efficient process, hence the name ‘aerobic respiration’
Where Is ATP Made?
In eukaryotic cells, complex cells that possess a nucleus, ATP is synthesized in the tiny energy factories called mitochondria.
