What is ElevATP?

ElevATP® is a proprietary, clinically researched combination of a water extract of “ancient peat” (fossilized plants) and apple extract. The ancient peat contains 70 plant-derived inorganic microelements. It is especially rich in carbon, magnesium, nitrogen, oxygen, and sulfur. The apple extract is made from apple peel and contains 10 apple polyphenols. ElevATP® was designed to support mitochondrial energy-producing processes to stimulate cellular energy  production in the form of ATP. Having extra ATP allows our cells to do more things better, upregulating health, performance, and metabolism.

ElevATP Dosing Principles and Rationale

The dose of elevATP® used in human clinical research has been 150 mg once daily. We opted to use this proven dose in our formulation. In general, we consider polyphenols, like those found in the apple peel extract component of elevATP® to be subject to hormetic dosing principles (see Neurohacker Dosing Principles). Flavonoids are additive, and often complementary with other polyphenol compounds, so the combination of all polyphenols in a formulation should be considered when determining dosage (not the amount of a single polyphenol molecule in isolation).

ElevATP Key Mechanisms

Mitochondrial function

  • Stimulates ATP production [1–5]
  • Protects from mitochondrial dysfunction [1]
  • Promotes mitochondrial dehydrogenase activity [6]
  • Protects from complex I (NADH-coenzyme Q reductase) inhibition [4]
  • Supports mitochondrial β-oxidation performance [5]
  • Upregulates peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARα) [7]

Mitochondrial structure

  • Supports healthy mitochondrial membrane potential [1]
  • Supports healthy mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) [6]
  • Supports healthy mitochondrial morphology [5]

Mitochondrial biogenesis

  • Upregulates peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma coactivator-1alpha (PGC-1α) [5,6,8]

Exercise performance (ergogenic effect)

  • Supports endurance performance  [9,10]
  • Supports strength performance  [11]
  • Supports muscle structure and function [7,9]
  • Upregulates lean mass [12,13]

Skeletal system

  • Supports cartilage structure [6]

Antioxidant defenses

  • Upregulates antioxidant enzymes (superoxide dismutase [SOD]) [6,8]
  • Downregulates oxidative stress [1,4,5,8]
  • Replenishes glutathione (GSH) levels [1]
  • Supports healthy mitochondrial redox status [1,4,5]

Cellular signaling

  • Downregulates the expression of proinflammatory molecules – tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFα), interleukin 6 (IL-6), prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), nuclear factor κB (NFκB), inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) [5,8]

Gut microbiota

  • Regulates the composition of the gut microbiota [14,15]
  • Regulates gut microbial metabolism [14,16]

Healthy aging and longevity 

  • Upregulates SIRT-1 [17] 
  • Downregulates mTOR signaling (small effect) [3]
