THE SCIENCE OF NINE IRON

Nine Iron is scientifically formulated as a hydration beverage. It contains 0 caffeine and 0 diuretic ingredients.

 

Product-PosterNine Iron is made from pure sugar. Sugar, or sucrose, is a disaccharide comprised of one D-glucose molecule and one D-Fructose molecule. These monosaccharaidesare the major source of fuel for metabolism. During their metabolism the two carbons are oxidized to CO2, and the energy from these reactions is transferred to other metabolic processes by GTP (or ATP), and as electrons in NADH and QH2. The NADH generated in the TCA cycle may later donate its electrons in oxidative phosphorylation to drive ATP synthesis; FADH2 is covalently attached to succinate dehydrogenase, an enzyme functioning both in the TCA cycle and the mitochondrial electron transport chain in oxidative phosphorylation. FADH2 thereby facilitates transfer of electrons to coenzyme Q, which is the final electron acceptor of the reaction catalyzed by the Succinate:ubiquinone oxidoreductase complex, also acting as an intermediate in the electron transport chain!

Remember in the citric acid cycle, carbohydrate breakdown into energy occurs more rapidly with the presence of Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid).

Nine Iron has an electrolyte profile similar to that of Gatorade. Where it excels is in the balance of the electrolytes and the values formulated to keep you from being dehydrated but also from being overhydrated. Overhydration can be just as serious as dehydration, and the sodium levels of Nine Iron are set to keep you from retaining water for forcing the kidneys to remove excess electrolytes.

Nine Iron has a skeletal muscle boosting serving of the amino acid Taurine. Taurine is necessary for normal skeletal muscle functioning. This was shown by a 2004 study, using mice with a genetic taurine deficiency. They had a nearly complete depletion of skeletal and cardiac muscle taurine levels. These mice had a reduction of more than 80% of exercise capacity compared to control mice.

Nine Iron contains actual Ginkgo Biloba leaf extract. Ginkgo extracts have three effects on the human body: improvement of blood flow (including microcirculation in small capillaries) to most tissues and organs; protection against oxidative cell damage from free radicals; and blockage of many of the effects of platelet-activating factor (platelet aggregation, blood clotting) that have been related to the development of a number of cardiovascular, renal, respiratory and central nervous system disorders.

Ginkgo can be used for intermittent claudication. An interesting non-scientific fact about Ginkgo; during the 1940’s bombing at Hiroshima 4 Ginkgo trees were the only living things to survive at the epicenter, and are still alive today.
