Top ENERGY Supplements:

Proven Natural Mitochondria – ATP Solutions


(The core energy currency of the human body is ATP, which is produced from healthy mitochondria function.)

1)PQQ: (PQQ stimulates mitochondria biogenesis via the cAMP pathway. Perhaps the single best option when supplemented with ubiquinol. Recent studies continue to demonstrate that PQQ, might be highly indicated for diseases of mitochondrial dysfunction.) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19861415

2)COQ10 (Ubiquinol): Similar findings as to PQQ suggest that coq10 when supplemented in the ubiquinol form, is highly synergistic with PQQ in direct stimulation of mitochondrial biogenesis. (2)

3)Benfotiamine: (Fat soluble vitamin B1 analog, benfotiamine increases mitochondrial glucose oxidation. Reversal of reduced glucose oxidation and mitochondrial function is an increasingly desirable target with global glucose levels on the rise, most notably in those with type 2 diabetes.) (3)

4)Pantethine: (Water soluble vitamin B5 analog, pantethine exerts effects on the serum lipid metabolism by two primary mechanisms: (1) increasing coenzyme A levels in the, thereby reducing the synthesis of cholesterol and triglycerides, and promoting lipolysis; and (2) modulating the activity of hydroxy-methyl-glutaryl-coenzyme A reductase. It appears to show strong synergy with benfotiamine.) (4)

My mother has recently started menopause and she is not well. I mean she fights with everyone, is super super moody and at times depressed. Please recommend something you know works. Thank you!

Should it be taken on an empty stomach (acid increases absorption according to webmd), or before/after meal?

I am taking it for idiopathic neuropathy.

I was shopping for tea at my local grocery store, and I noticed there was a tea promoting that it contained probiotics. Now if I seep a teabag in hot water, will it not destroy whatever probiotics that may have been in the tea anyway?

This question relates to something I've read on a few forums concerning Vitamin K2 and possible side-effects of overuse or use with a dietary imbalance.

The main benefit of Vitamin K2 is its effect on calcium. It's thought to promote arterial health by pulling calcium out of the bloodstream (which calcifies arteries over time).

(You folks know this. I'm just explaining where my question is coming from.)

What I've read is that while this is good for arterial health, it's not necessarily great for nerve/muscle health. The idea is that because your calcium is being pulled away from your blood stream at a higher rate while on K2, the result is you can end up with an imbalance of necessary electrolytes for everyday function.

The ratio of calcium in comparison to everything else gets thrown off and this can result in issues like heart palpitations and similar side-effects related to nerves and muscles.

My question comes in two parts.

  1. Is this actually true or is it more of a theoretical risk that hasn't really been proven? Or does it exist but only if your diet is already off in electrolytes?

  2. Would it make sense for someone to take a mineral complex (mix of Calcium/Potassium/Magnesium/etc.) alongside K2 in order to ensure this balance is maintained?

I have to wonder if the benefits of K2 would be mitigated if you started to ingest more calcium alongside it?

Just wanted to hear your thoughts on the topic.

Cake Day

The supplements subreddit aims to discuss and share topics related to nutritional supplementation. This includes new research, potential supplement choices (ie. what should I take? What can replace xxx?), and general discussions on different categories of supplementation. This subreddit is mostly powered by research from [Examine.com](http://examine.com/), and some reading of the supplement on hand (either at this site or other sources) before posting is encouraged to facilitate discussion.
