Ingredient Spotlight: elevATP®


elevATP® is a patented combination of ancient peat and apple extract that is clinically shown to increase levels of endogenous ATP (adenosine triphosphate) and support improved strength, power, and performance in resistance-trained athletes.*

ATP is the primary source of energy for the body's cells, and is especially important during physical exercise. Our body produces ATP through a process called cellular respiration, which involves the breakdown of nutrients such as glucose, fats and amino acids.

ATP production is a critical process that is essential for all of the body's cellular processes, including muscle contractions, nerve impulses, and protein synthesis.

elevATP® is believed to work by stimulating the production of ATP in the body, which can help improve endurance, reduce fatigue, and enhance recovery.

How is using elevATP® different to Creatine?

Unlike other ATP supplements such as Creatine Monohydrate or Creatine HCL that work to directly increase ATP levels in an exogenous way, elevATP® works by helping the body to produce more ATP on it's own, the way nature intended.

Does elevATP® actually work?

A clinical trial of 18 healthy adults found that taking a 150mg serving of elevATP® caused a 64% increase in blood levels of ATP, compared to a 50mg serving of silica oxide (placebo).

Figure 1: Effect of elevATP® on blood ATP levels. Whole blood was collected from placebo-treated or elevATP®-treated subjects at T0 (baseline), T60, T90 and T120. ATP was detected by using a luciferase-based assay on 10μl of lysed whole blood.

What are other benefits of supplementing elevATP®?

Human trials of elevATP® supplementation have shown the below results:

  • Enhances exercise capacity and reducing fatigue [12]
  • Significantly increases strength and power output during resistance training [3]
  • Increases blood flow to working muscle tissue [4]

elevATP® is also an award winning ingredient, winning Ingredient of the Year in the Sports Nutrition Category for the 2018 NutraIngredients-USA Awards in Chicago.

If the above aren't enough for you, elevATP® is also non-GMO and GRAS verified and is 100% Vegan Friendly.

What is the recommended dosage of elevATP®?

As mentioned above, the dosage shown to increase ATP levels and therefore performance is 150mg.

Where can I find elevATP®?

 EFECTIV Nutrition ALPHA Male Support Formula contains 150mg of elevATP®.
