The Science Behind PEAK400TM
One of the biggest misunderstandings associated with oral ATP supplementation is the erroneous conclusion that ATP and creatine is the same thing. Regardless of whether creatine is used as a stand-alone or a as part of a formula it’s presence is because creatine works by increasing intramuscular phosphocreatine levels and thereby increasing ATP re-synthesis rates. It does this by donating a phosphate group to ADP to form ATP. “PEAK ATPS MAIN METHODS OF ACTION ARE TO INCREASE ATP IN THE BLOOD NOT THE MUSCLE” People often mistake taking oral ATP as a method to directly increase intracellular muscle ATP. For this reason it is often wrongfully compared to creatine. However, science shows that they are two completely and very different supplements. Peak ATP's (PEAK400™) main methods of action are to increase ATP in the blood, not the muscle. And we know that ATP in the blood is the most essential aspect to increasing blood flow during exercise which impacts a vasodilation response and the delivery of key nutrients to muscle. It is also essential for muscle excitability, muscle velocity and power.
Creatine is used by every cell in the body to catalyze functional energy. Without sufficient creatine, the body functions but all cellular metabolism and repair happens at a diminished rate. Our bodies produce about half of the creatine it needs, the remainder comes from our diet (mainly meat & some seafood). Many diets lack sufficient amounts of these food groups and therefore supplementation of creatine is advised for optimized body functions. Creatine is CRITICAL for everyone and is especially key for muscle strength, overall endurance, and recovery.
