Automobiles burn gasoline for energy. Humans burn sugars. And like a car with a poor combustion mixture (too much fuel/not enough air) problems inevitably result with the motor, and eventually there is a loss of horsepower. Scientists are now beginning to understand the elegant feedback mechanisms that our bodies use to perform this tricky balancing act. Much of the responsibility lies with a powerful molecule known as AMPK. Its so important, it has been given the nickname the fuel gauge of the cell. Just like the fuel gauge of a car, AMPK monitors and helps control the amount of energy available to drive the cells metabolism. Thus, maintaining healthy AMPK function is essential to having a well-tuned metabolism.
Utilizing cutting-edge insight into molecular biology, Dr. Peter DAdamo formulated El Dorado, a unique formula designed to support the healthy function of AMPK. He has found that patients on the El Dorado protocol show healthy blood sugar regulation, an increase in muscle mass, normalized cellular energy production, and a metabolism working at optimal levels, especially when combined with proper diet and exercise. Maintaining healthy function of AMPK also improves many of the cellular systems involved in waste removal. This has important significance with regard to anti-aging, as the accumulation of cellular waste products is a well-recognized sign of the aging process. Almost every bit of research on anti-aging strategies, from calorie restriction to exercise, finds its basis in its ability to enhance these two important functions.
