What Is AMPK?
Adenosine 5′ monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is an enzyme that is known as the body’s ‘master regulator of energy metabolism.’ It works as an energy sensor within our cells. As you age, AMPK activity significantly decreases. This is one reason why we experience changes in appetite, body weight, energy levels, etc.
We know that AMPK activators can offer many benefits. These benefits include reducing inflammation, improving metabolic pathways and supporting healthy ageing.
AMPK stands for “adenosine 5′ monophosphate-activated protein kinase.” It is an enzyme present in all living beings that plays an important role in energy balance.
It helps determine your body’s balance between energy consumption and production. The body balances production of AMP by sensing its current AMP to adenosine triphosphate (ATP) ratio. ATP molecules are those that act as a source of fuel within cells. (1) Energy starts as ATP within cells and eventually breaks down into AMP.

Regulates energy usage and maintains homeostasis
One of the most important functions of AMPK is regulating energy balance and metabolism. It does this by monitoring and increasing cellular energy. When cellular energy is high, your body responds by decreasing your appetite and increasing energy expenditure.
Supports weight loss
AMPK can cause changes in hunger and satiety, as well as impact how cells use and store energy.
AMPK can help stimulate fat-burning and weight loss. It helps muscles use more glucose for energy, controls appetite and increases the amount of energy spent on physical activity. Homeostasis controlled in part by AMPK activation can also lead to increased body temperature, reduced inflammation and improved hormone balance. All of those help you maintain a healthy weight. (4)
AMPK is tied to adequate thyroid hormone production. When T3 thyroid hormone production is increased, AMPK is activated in muscles.
AMPK has anti-inflammatory potential. It promotes antioxidant activity, building defences against factors that accelerate ageing such as a poor diet, chemical/toxin exposure, and chronic stress. Studies show that AMPK increases the production of certain antioxidant proteins.
AMPK signalling may help prevent chronic conditions tied to inflammation. AMPK can help decrease production of fatty acids, cholesterol, triglycerides and proteins.
Improves metabolic pathways and insulin sensitivity
AMPK is a major cellular regulator of lipid and glucose metabolism.
Can improve physical performance
During exercise, AMPK increases glucose uptake and fatty acid oxidation. Another way it regulates energy usage is by supporting mitochondrial activity.
Supports autophagy and healthy ageing
AMPK signalling can support cellular renewal and activate autophagy. Autophagy is a physiological process in the body that deals with destruction of cells.
AMPK helps regulate processes that turn over destroyed cells, damaged mitochondria and other degraded material to form new cells. AMPK helps the body age and deal with stress in a healthier way. Autophagy needs to be upscaled and increased as free radicals/oxidative stress take a toll on cells.
Heat 700ml of water to 38 degrees (don’t boil you will kill the bacteria in the sachet). Pour into glass jar, then place the sachet in and seal with airtight lid. This has live bacteria within that will be activated with the water. Steep overnight at room temperature. Thereafter Keep refrigerated. Do not remove sachet.
Dose: 50ml twice a day
Course: Seven days
