What is Energy Pro?
Energy Pro is a dietary supplement with a carefully selected combination of ingredients that may enhance mitochondrial function and possibly improve physical energy.
Energy Pro Ingredients and Benefits
Acetyl - L-Carnitine (ALCAR)
L-Carnitine is an amino acid that is naturally produced in the body. ALCAR may help improve your mood, learning and memory. In addition, it may carry the fatty acids to the mitochondria, which then may use those acids to produce ATP. ATP powers cells and may help to increase energy production and may be beneficial for fat burning.
The natural form of lipoic acid. R-Lipoic acid converts glucose into ATP to which may help to produce energy. It also may provide free radical protection which may help safeguard the internal and exterior structure of the cells.
May generate energy production in every cell. It is involved in producing ATP which may help transfer energy to the cells. It also acts as a scavenger to potentially seek out and destroys free radicals. Additionally, CoQ10 may help improve exercise performance by possibly decreasing oxidative stress in the cells.
This is a micronutrient that may protect your cells and mitochondria from free radicals. There has been some evidence to show that it may boost metabolism and potentially combat oxidative stress.
May help the body methylate agents that are important to mitochondrial function.
May help the body keep DNA and red blood cells healthy. It also may play a role in detoxifying the body.
The purest form of vitamin B9 and may help promote healthy, stable folate levels in the body.
May help the body convert carbohydrates into glucose which may be beneficial for improving energy levels.
Energy Pro Dosage
The dosage is 1-2 capsules daily or as directed by your physician.
