As previously discussed, ATP is the universal currency of energy used in biological systems to maintain an organism in a state that is far from thermodynamic equilibrium with the environment, that is far from death. The active from of ATP is a complex of ATP with mainly magnesium, but also with manganese. In case of manganese deficiency, magnesium can replace manganese. The turnover of ATP is extremely high. For example, a human at rest consumes one half of his/her weight of ATP daily.
The synthesis of ATP from ADP plus high energy phosphate group is called oxidative phosphorilation and is dependent on the electron flow through the electron transport chain via electron carriers. NADH and FADH2 are the major electron carriers in the synthesis of ATP. The B vitamins, niacin and riboflavin, are the precursors of the Cofactors NADH and FADH2. These Cofactors play an important role also in the oxidation and organification of iodide by generating hydrogen peroxide via the NADPH oxydase system. In some conditions, the body cannot efficiently synthesized NADH and FADH3 from Niacin and Riboflavin because of defect/damage to the enzymes involved in this conversion. More Riboflavin and Niacin are needed to override the inefficient enzymes in order to obtain adequate levels of Cofactors. Evidence for a deficient organification of iodide was recently reported in a female subject with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Preliminary results in this subject and others suggest that high dosage of vitamins B-2 and B-3 combined with 100-150mg of elemental iodine in the form of Lugol tablets resulted in a significant improvement of overall well being in these subjects.

I am a Nutritional Therapist and have been on Iodine therapy (25mg/day) for five months and kept failing the Iodine patch test which indicated I was still deficient. After reading Dr. Brownstein's book on Iodine and attending his seminar, I tried ATP Cofactors with the hope that this would be the missing piece in my low Thyroid function, low energy and FMS symptoms. After five days, I have lost five pounds, lost water weight and puffiness and have great energy!! I am so grateful for this product. It is amazing.
Great product especially if your taking Ioderal. Some people need the ATP as a catalyst.

Getting the ATP Cofactors isn't really necessary

I find there are better vitamin B supplements out there. I prefer Thorne over this brand.
