These intermediates are then passed into the electron transport chain where they undergo a further series of reactions – receiving and donating electrons down the chain – to produce energy, in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), CO2 and water. Specifically, glutamate and GABA (5). This is the amount recommended to maintain health. It is chock-full of both fat and water-soluble vitamins, a wide range of minerals and trace elements, all eight essential amino acids, more than 60 enzymes, and CLA—an omega-6 fatty acid with impressive effects on everything from insulin resistance to cancer to cardiovascular disease.
