The Science Behind How Your Body Makes Energy
Have you gotten tired of turning to caffeine and sugar for a quick rush, only to experience a crash afterward? Have you gotten fed up with being addicted to coffee and needing to drink more and more coffee to produce the same effect? Have you ever thought to yourself, “There must be a better way”?
Everyone needs energy. Whether you have a job that requires a lot of physical activity, a taxing fitness routine, or a stressful life that leaves you exhausted, you need to have energy to pull it off. People turn to caffeine because they get quick results, but depending on caffeine is not a viable solution long-term. You can think of caffeine as a vacuum cleaner that sucks the nutrients out of your body in order to deliver that short-term boost. You can only do this so many times before your body is so depleted that it has nothing to give any more, and caffeine stops working until you have had time to build those reserves back up..
However, there IS a better way.Your body knows how to turn food into energy, deliver it to the cells that need it, and conduct all the activities that you perform on a daily basis. All it needs is the appropriate building blocks to keep that energy system running smoothly. Here at Energy by Science, we have decided to tap into the science of how the body works in order to produce healthy energy supplements that deliver sustainable energy.
The way we do that is by putting ingredients into our energy pills that actually build the body’s natural energy reserves rather than depleting them.
How Your Body Makes and Harvests Energy“Cellular Respiration” is the scientific term for your body’s complex energy harvesting system. Without going into the nitty-gritty biology of things like glycolysis, the Krebs cycle, and electron transport, suffice it to say that the system is complex, technical, and full of multiple moving parts. (For a fascinating, mind-blowing experience, look up information on the incredible machinery that’s inside your mitochondria.) To simplify:
- Your body needs to break down ATP (adenosine triphosphate) in order to harvest energy for everything from muscle contractions to neurotransmitter activity in your brain.
- ATP comes from glucose.
- Glucose comes from the food we eat
However, we don’t eat pure glucose, and even if we did, we wouldn’t suddenly discover that we have loads of energy. This is because the machinery around the transformation of glucose to energy requires you to consume other nutrients in order to have those building blocks in place. In future blog posts, we’ll look in more detail at the precise ingredients that our natural energy capsules contain. These ingredients help you to not only feel energized, they actually replenish your body’s reserves, helping you to endure longer and recover faster.
If you’re here, it’s probably because you are looking for a natural energy-boosting supplement that doesn’t come with all the downsides of caffeine. Look no further. Energy By Science has the products that give you the energy you need. Buy it now in our online shop.
