Electrolytes are your body’s muscle-cramp-busting security force. Our specific combination of sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium assists your body in muscle contraction and cramp avoidance departments. They also regulate ATP production and defend against muscle decomposition. One 2 oz. serving of X2PERFORMANCE® contains as many electrolytes as an 8 oz. serving of the leading sports drink.
If the CoQ10 molecule had a slogan it would be: Create and Defend, because it 1) acts as a coenzyme (organic substance that usually pairs a vitamin or mineral with a protein) in the electron transport chain in the creation of ATP, and 2) acts as an antioxidant by preventing the creation of free oxide radicals— rogue molecules that can cause damage to tissues and cells.
nature’s slowburning energy source providing you with a longer, more sustainable rise in blood sugar over time. This is also excellent for post workout recovery. If that wasn’t enough, honey also contains antioxidants to help fight off free oxide radicals.
Each 2 oz. serving of X2PERFORMANCE® contains only 74 mg of caffeine, less than a small cup of coffee but enough to support your body’s natural metabolism and energy synthesis. We use this small amount of caffeine to boost fatty acid mobilization, the process that aids the generation and regeneration of ATP.
Glucose is your energy and muscle contraction M.V.P. and your primary energy source during physical activity. A single glucose molecule can produce up to 32 units of ATP.
Ribose springs into action when your workout energy tank is empty or running on fumes, and is a crucial building block of the ATP molecule. During and after intense exercise, ribose acts to restore ATP levels.
Pinitol is the body’s preferred exercise and fitness wingman, as it helps cells to quickly “pick-up” or uptake circulating blood glucose, which can then be utilized to recycle ATP during exercise or restore glycogen stores, which are important for liver and muscle energy during recovery. Pinitol has also been shown to increase the retention of creatine, an organic acid that supplies energy to muscle.
Think of ATP Disodium as a small but integral part of your body’s energy Express delivery service; it’s a salt hydrate (an organic compound containing water) that carries energy to and widens blood vessels. This widening helps to bring nutrients such as oxygen and glucose to muscle cells (very important for energy and endurance) and transport lactic acid (the stuff that makes you “feel the burn”) out of the cells and away from your muscles (very important for recovery).
