VITAL ENERGY PRODUCTION SUBSTRATES
Although it's hard to give any of the ingredients even a slightly lower status, arguably the key players in the formula have to be Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and Idebenone. These two nutrients are the primary substrates involved in the Electron Transport Chain process of ATP production by the mitochondria.
Mitochondria are micro organelles (little organs) found in virtually all cells in the human body, except red blood cells. The 20-2500 mitochondria per cell produce the majority of the body's energy (ATP) by means of an intricate and complex process called cellular respiration. The production of ATP within the mitochondria involves two metabolic cycles known as the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle, which is also called the "Krebs" or "citric acid" cycle, and the oxidative phosphorylation electron transport chain, commonly abbreviated as ETC.
CoQ10 is a vital catalyst, perhaps THE primary substrate involved in the mitochondrial electron transport chain. CoQ10's importance cannot be understated because quite simply, without it, the chain of cellular energy production is broken. This is key not only for athletic performance but also for maintaining cardiovascular and brain health, and strong immunity. For both athletic performance and general health applications, there is simply no question that the athlete MUST supplement with CoQ10.
Idebenone, also called hydroxydecyl Q, is an analogue of CoQ10 and a superb compliment to this remarkable nutrient. In fact, some experts even suggest it to be even more powerful in action than CoQ10. In essence, Idebenone extends the already powerful benefits of CoQ10 and under hypoxic (low oxygen) conditions Idebenone's ATP generating capabilities are even superior to CoQ10.
For supporting the TCA (or "Krebs") cycle, the RACE CAPS SUPREME formula supplies a precise amount Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium KCI. These are the elemental minerals chelated to Krebs Cycle Intermediates (Malate, Citrate, Aspartate, Lysinate, Glycinate). With this KCI donation now a part of the formula, RACE CAPS SUPREME provides key substrates to support and enhance both metabolic cycles (the Electron Transport Chain and the Tricarboxylic Acid (TCA) cycle, which again, is also called the "Krebs" cycle) involved in ATP production. Additional Alpha ketoglutaric acid has been added to the formula to provide even more support for enhancing the Krebs Cycle.
Vitamin E, while not directly involved in the cellular respiration process, is a vital component in the RACE CAPS SUPREME formula. The naturally derived, easily assimilated succinate form of this mineral supports CoQ10 and Idebenone in neutralizing free radicals, which are a naturally occurring metabolic by-product of energy production. Succinates are also a key component in the TCA (or "Krebs") cycle.
ENHANCED OXYGEN UTILIZATION... and MUCH MORE
A precise blend of the Trimethylglycine (TMG), inosine, and glycerol phosphate provide benefits for enhancing oxygen utilization, optimizing fats-for-fuels capabilities, and for providing additional support for energy production and acid buffering.
TMG has been shown to perform lipotropic activity (fatty-acid utilization for energy production), it has been used to treat muscular weakness and degeneration, it is a powerful antioxidant, and a nutrient which primarily acts as a methyl donor, enhancing the transport of oxygen to muscle tissues.
Inosine, also known as an anti-fatigue nutrient, is a naturally occurring metabolic product that is readily utilized by the body. Inosine increases the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood, allowing more oxygen to be delivered to the muscles, thereby reducing fatigue.
Phosphates (in the form of glycerol phosphate) are used in the muscle mitochondrial cells for the production of energy and are also beneficial for buffering excess acidity.
Efficient Absorption Assured
To maximize nutrient absorption, RACE CAPS SUPREME contains a potent blend of various digestive aids. One of these is a proprietary formula called the Enzyme Enhancement System and the other is the well-researched standardized black pepper extract called Bioperine.
