Cell Fuel is a vegetarian, gluten free, orange avored powdered formula that supports mitochondrial function to help manage fatigue and support cellular function.* Cell Fuel Supports: • Energy via the production and recycling of ATP* • Exercise tolerance* • Cardiovascular output* • Muscle strength and recovery* • Oxygen utilization and physical stamina* • Athletic performance and endurance* About ATP and Mitochondria ATP ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is a high energy molecule in cells. It is generated within the mitochondria. ATP is composed of adenosine (an adenine ring and a ribose sugar) and three phosphate groups. When in use ATP is broken down to ADP (adenosine diphosphate) to provide energy. Energy from the breakdown of ATP drives many important reactions in the cell. This means that ATP needs to be constantly produced especially during exercise. Mitochondria Mitochondria are tiny organelles found in every cell in the body. They are known as the “powerhouse of the cell” and are responsible for creating more than 90% of cellular energy. Mitochondria are necessary in the body to sustain life and support growth. They are composed of tiny packages of enzymes that turn nutrients into cellular energy. Mitochondrial failure causes cell injury that leads to cell death. When multiple organ cells die there is organ failure. In adults, many challenges associated with aging have been found to have defects of mitochondrial function.* Cell Fuel contains: D-Ribose D-Ribose is a naturally occurring sugar that has been shown to support the production and recycling of ATP which helps to increase energy formation in stressed tissues.* DMG DMG is a metabolic enhancer that helps the body overcome various forms of stress such as aging, poor oxygen availability, free radical damage and supports the immune system.* As a methyl donor it contributes methyl groups to keep ATP levels high.* Co Enzyme Q10 CoQ10 is a free radical scavenger and a naturally occurring cofactor in cellular energy.* It is vital to the production of ATP. It supports the heart’s pumping ability, blood circulation, helps facilitate tolerance to exercise and helps maintain the heart’s muscle tone.* As a powerful free radical scavenger it helps protect heart tissue from free-radical damage.* CoQ10 levels decline after the age of 35. Acetyl-L-Carnitine Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a derivative of the amino acid, carnitine. It supports heart function by transporting fatty acids from the blood through to the mitochondrial membranes and into heart cells so the fatty acids can be converted into ATP*. The heart requires a constant supply of ATP in order to provide enough energy for it to keep beating regularly. Malic Acid Malic Acid is involved in energy production in muscle cells. It also supports increased ATP production because it’s involved in the Krebs cycle. Malic acid is also needed for glucose metabolism, which is important for nourishing muscles and nerves. Rhodiola Rhodiola is an herb (Rhodiola rosea) that supports cellular energy metabolism.* It helps to facilitate high levels of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) and CP (creatine phosphate), thus providing more of the energy molecules needed to perform many daily activities.* We use the Rhodiola rosea species and it’s standardized to contain the proven 3:1 ratio of 3 percent rosavins and 1 percent salindosides. Bromelain Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme that supports muscle recovery.* It has been shown to help manage muscle soreness after intense muscle contractions.* Protease Protease is a proteolytic enzyme that helps manage muscle soreness following intense exercise.* Supplement Facts Serving Size: 1 Scoop (10 g) Servings Per Container: 30 Amount Per Serving Calories 35 Total Carbohydrates 9 g Calcium 25 mg D-Ribose (Bioenergy Ribose® Brand) 5,000 mg Acetyl L-Carnitine 500 mg Malic Acid 300 mg N,N-Dimethylglycine HCl (DMG) 100 mg Rhodiola rosea Extract 75 mg yielding rosavins 2.25 mg Coenzyme Q10 30 mg Bromelain 1,000 mg Protease (from Aspergillus niger) 1,000 mg Stevia Leaf Extract 45 mg Other ingredients: natural orange powder, citric acid, natural orange avor, silica, tricalcium phosphate.
