Energy . . .

Do we have enough? This year, the curtain went up on several exciting products which duplicate those used by our own bodies to produce energy.

Coenzyme-A (CoA) is the most active metabolic enzyme in our bodies.

As the initiator of the body's energy cycle (known variously as the ATP, TCA, Krebs, or citric acid cycle), it is constantly expended and constantly needs replenishing. Its function is to help the cells deliver fuel to the ATP cycle: carbohydrate from anaerobic (insufficient oxygen in the system) metabolism and fat from aerobic (sufficient oxygen) metabolism.

Besides its indispensable energy work, CoA 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. Lastly, CoA retards the development of lactic acid build up during exercise, saving us from sore, stiff muscles.

Symptoms of a CoA deficiency include: fatigue, depression, anxiety, loss of appetite, impaired sense of balance, easy irritability, heart instability, and an abnormal need for sleep. Neurological disorders include numbness, muscle weakness, cramps, and abdominal pain.
