PEAK ATP® improves cognitive function following exercise.
The study examined the acute effect of PEAK ATP® vs. placebo on cognitive function, reaction time, multiple object tracking and mood in healthy men and women before and after a fatiguing exercise protocol.
In this placebo-controlled crossover study 20 adults that were healthy, recreationally active individuals between ages 18-40 participated in the 14-day study. Subjects were given PEAK ATP® or placebo to ingest before performing an all-out three-minute sprint test on a cycle erometer (3MT).
Researchers measured visuomotor reaction time, multiple object tracking speed, mood and cognition before and after participants' high-intensity exercise bouts. Researchers found that subjects supplementing with PEAK ATP® maintained proactive reaction time and improved reactive reaction time following a high-intensity sprint exercise. The study also showed that PEAK ATP® supplementation was able to decrease the number of errors during a reactive visuomotor task. It also suggested that ATP may mitigate exercise induced cognitive dysfunction.
