MISSOULA, MT (September 30, 2005) – Technical Sourcing International, Inc. (TSI) announced today that PEAK ATP™, a proprietary nutraceutical ingredient that delivers the exact molecule the human body needs to create energy, is a featured ingredient in a new cardiovascular support supplement developed by the Life Extension Foundation Buyers Club. The new product, named PEAK ATP™ with GlycoCarn™ and launched September 1 of this year, is designed to restore and maintain healthy endothelial cell function while supporting cellular energy metabolism. Both actions ultimately contribute to supporting cardiovascular health.
What many people don’t realize is that damage to the endothelium, the layer of cells that line the blood vessels, may lead to serious health issues. Therefore, therapies that have a positive effect on endothelial cells have the potential to support the entire cardiovascular system.
A large volume of research indicates the PEAK ATP™ ingredient does just that. Cell studies suggest that supplemental ATP has been shown to activate important ATP receptors – P2X and P2Y – on endothelial cells. This interaction improves the tone of the blood vessels and relaxes the vessel walls so that more oxygen and nutrient-rich blood can get through to the heart and peripheries. Studies have shown that ATP has a dramatic effect on circulation without adversely affecting heart rate or blood pressure.
Life Extension’s PEAK ATP™ with GlycoCarn™ offers a therapeutic daily amount of PEAK ATP™ (200 mg), along with 1,000 mg of propionyl L-carnitine, another ingredient indicated for endothelial cell health. It is available through the company’s website, www.lifeextension.com, and through their retail store in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
Keith Lennertz, President of Supplement Formulators, a division of Life Extension, was very optimistic about the product’s success, stating “Life Extension invests millions of dollars a year to create awareness of cutting edge developments in nutritional ingredients such as PEAK ATP™.” TSI President Larry Kolb also expressed his enthusiasm for the new partnership, saying “One of the goals of TSI is to introduce scientifically sound and original nutraceutical ingredients to the dietary supplement market; Life Extension clearly shares our vision.”
