Effect of PeakATP (adenosine 5’- triphosphate disodium) on mood, reaction time and cognitive performance

The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of a drink-based ATP supplement (PeakATP) vs. placebo on measures of mood, reaction time and cognition tasks. In addition, we will examine the acute effect of PeakATP vs. placebo on anaerobic performance during a 3-minute anaerobic cycle test.

Inclusion Qualifications:

  • Male of female between the ages of 18-40 years old
  • Healthy, and ready for physical activity as determined by the PAR-Q+ and MHQ
  • Recreationally-active (defined according to ACSM standards of at least 150 minutes of combined exercise per week).
  • Not currently taking and be willing to abstain from creatine or beta-alanine supplementation or be willing to complete a 4-week wash-out period prior to enrolling if taking creatine or beta-alanine and be willing to abstain from supplementing with either for the duration of the study.

Exclusion Qualifications:

You may not participate in this research opportunity if any of the following applies to you:
  • Inability to perform physical exercise (determined by health and activity questionnaire [MHQ] and PAR Q+). That is Answering “Yes” to any question on the PAR-Q +, or having a pre-existing condition such as musculoskeletal injury, back pain, chronic pain etc. that the investigative team perceives will prevent a participant from safely completing the protocol.
  • Not currently participating in at least 150 minutes of physical activity per week.
  • Currently taking any performance-enhancing drug (determined from health and activity questionnaire).
  • Currently taking a nutritional supplement known to improve anaerobic performance that requires a wash-out period (e.g., creatine, beta-alanine) and are not willing to undergo a 4-week wash-out period prior to participating.
  • Regularly taking any type of prescription or over-the-counter medication, or having any chronic illnesses, which require medical care.
