Coenzyme ATM "The Master Coenzyme TM"

by Nickolaos D. Skouras, PhD.

What is Coenzyme-A?

Coenzyme-A is the most active metabolic enzyme in the human body. Coenzyme-A operates in the body's cells and blood where it is required by metabolic processes that facilitate more than one hundred chemical reactions. Every organ of the body has Coenzyme-A in its tissues because every part of the body has a use for it.

Why is it important to maintain a consistent supply of Coenzyme-A in your body?

Since its discovery in 1947, Coenzyme-A's crucial importance to a host of metabolic processes has been recognized and intensively studied. Coenzyme-A is required to metabolize the three major forms of energy (fat, carbohydrates, and protein). As the initiator of the body's energy cycle (known variously as the ATP, TCA, Krebs, or citric acid cycle), it produces more than 90% of the energy the body requires to sustain life.

Coenzyme-A is also required to initiate the chemical reactions required by the human body to utilize Coenzyme Q10, Coenzyme 1 (NADH/Enada) and many of the other nutrients the body needs to stay healthy. Coenzyme-A is constantly expended by the metabolic processes of the body and constantly needs replenishing.

When Coenzyme-A is lacking or blocked the human body cannot generate energy from the usual sources and may suffer from conditions known by such medical terms as "chronic fatigue syndrome" (CFS). In addition, intermediate compounds that accumulate when Coenzyme-A is lacking or blocked poison other systems and lead to manifestations of other diseases.

Studies show that Coenzyme-A plays a major role in the body's ability to cope with stress and strengthen the immune system. Stress contributes to the three leading causes of death: cancer, heart attack, and stroke. Studies also show that stress deteriorates the immune system. A healthy immune system is vital for defense against infections, diseases, premature death, and the effects of aging.

In combating stress, the body secretes hormones known as glucocorticoids from the adrenal glands as a means to adapt to stress, this is commonly known as the fight-or-flight reaction. These hormones are derivatives of cholesterol and an increased demand for them will draw on the available Coenzyme-A. Lipid (fat) metabolism and energy production may therefore be compromised, rendering the body more prone to depleted energy, weight gain, acne, chronic fatigue syndrome, cancer, heart attack, stroke and other diseases.

Symptoms of a deficiency of Coenzyme-A included: fatigue, depression, anxiety, loss of appetite, impaired sense of balance, easy irritability, cardiac instability, and abnormal need for sleep. Neurological disorders included: numbness, muscle weakness, cramps, and abdominal pain.

Besides its indispensable energy work, Coenzyme-A initiates the synthesis of a wide variety of other essential substances. These include acetylcholine (the neurotransmitter), the steroid hormones (produced in the adrenal glands), and the sex hormones. It supports immune function, including the repair of DNA and RNA, plus healing from physical injury. It facilitates the manufacture of important components of connective tissue necessary to joint health, particularly chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid. Coenzyme-A also enhances physical performance and prevents sore, stiff muscles by reducing the build up of lactic acid during physical activity.

Who is Coenzyme-A Technologies Inc.?

Coenzyme-A Technologies Inc. is the world's first developer of effective "Precuror Coenzyme-A and Acetyl Coenzyme-A products". Coenzyme-A Technologies has applied new technology to the formulation and manufacture of a series of proprietary products which address nutritional deficiencies that result from the stress of modern day living, chemical imbalances within the body, and the effects of aging.

Coenzyme ATM is the first nutraceutical product to combine nutritional precursor components that can be used by the body to support its manufacture and utilization of Coenzyme-A (The Master Coenzyme). Coenzyme ATM contains a specific set of precursor substrates that are designed to assist the body in converting fats, carbohydrates and proteins into energy at the cellular level.

The active components of COENZYME ATM precursor formula are:
Coenzyme A Modulator Matrix ITM(this is a proprietary matrix)
Pantethine
Calcium Pyruvate
Acetyl-L-Carnitine
L-Cysteine

The benefits of Coenzyme ATM include:

In summary, proper nutrition combined with Coenzyme ATM, vitamin and mineral supplements, and exercise, may be the best prescription for improving the way your body looks and feels and for providing superior "health insurance" for long life.
