Trigger is quite literally the first true form of “energy in a pill.” Using patented technology, Trigger provides pure adenosine triphosphate (ATP) orally without it losing bioavailability, in the form of Peak ATP®.
Therefore, Trigger works through three distinct mechanisms to enhance physical performance, reduce fatigue, and increase blood flow to working muscles. This is why we call it the Smart Ergogenic. This truly is a revolutionary supplement; stop wasting your time and PULL THE TRIGGER!
Many people may be wondering what ATP is exactly? And why is this biomolecule so crucial for athletic performance (and just life in general)? Don’t worry, here’s an easy-to-understand overview of how ATP works and why it’s the optimum energy source for life.
The Energy of Life: ATP
ATP is the energy currency of cells, and is ultimately derived from the foods that we eat and sunlight. For example, the process of glycolysis breaks down carbohydrates/sugars that we eat and ultimately converts them into pyruvate and ATP. When we breathe in oxygen, aerobic respiration produces ATP and carbon dioxide.
ATP is a biomolecule that serves to transport chemical energy within cells to carry out metabolic reactions. Without it, we would not even be able to carry out daily functions like breathing or walking. Moreover, when we produce more ATP we can use that energy to perform physical work more efficiently and effectively (i.e. lift more weight, achieve more reps per set, run longer, etc.)
How does ATP work?
ATP creates free energy by either releasing a phosphate group (via hydrolysis) or by phosphorylating another residue in the body. Essentially, the phosphate groups in ATP molecules are where chemical energy is stored, and upon the release of these groups that energy is liberated to be harnessed by living systems to perform work. Keep in mind this a very rudimentary overview of ATP works.
Why is ATP crucial for physical/athletic performance?
Muscle cells are repeatedly exhausting and restoring ATP levels in order to perform work (i.e. contract). Therefore, anyway to augment the restoration process of ATP is conducive to increasing a muscle’s capacity to perform work. As alluded to earlier, the more ATP you produce, the longer and more intense you can train. This is largely how creatine monohydrate has become such a well-renowned supplement for athletes and bodybuilders over the years.
Trigger as a replacement for creatine supplements?
Theoretically, Trigger is more efficacious than creatine because it serves to increase cellular ATP stores directly rather than through the phosphocreatine system. Creatine monohydrate supplements work by bolstering the phosphocreatine system in muscle cells. Phosphocreatine, as you may have derived already, is a creatine molecule bound to phosphate. It serves as a mediator for regenerating ATP by donating its phosphate group to adenosine diphosphate (ADP) molecules.
Unfortunately, creatine monohydrate causes many gym-goers and athletes to suffer gastric distress and bloating from retaining large amounts of water. Moreover, not everyone responds well to creatine.
Trigger is a perfect replacement for these individuals. Even people who do tolerate/respond well to creatine will still benefit by using Trigger either in lieu of creatine or along with creatine.
Breaking down the research for Peak ATP
Until Peak ATP® was developed, ATP has never really been a feasible supplement (orally) because it is degraded upon ingestion. Thankfully, the team at TSI Health Sciences created a patented technology that allows ATP to pass through the digestive system efficiently and be absorbed intact.
Research on Peak ATP® thus far has been very intriguing, yielding improvements in trainees via 3 mechanisms:
