What is AMP-k?

Black Carrot C3G® activates AMP-k, (adenosine-monophosphate-protein-activated-kinase) is the master cell regulator of most cells in the body, and in the liver, skeletal muscle, fatty acids and in the brain that stimulates energy production, (glucose transport, fatty acid oxidation) and switches off the pathways which consume energy, such as protein synthesis lipogenesis and gluconeogenesis. When activated, AMP-k limits fatty acid efflux from adipocytes and favours local fatty acid oxidation. In regards to carbohydrates, when activated, AMPK increases glucose uptake and is therefore is heavily involved in improving insulin sensitivity and it's molecular mechanisms play a vital role in battling many issues associated with metabolic syndrome, including insulin resistance and obesity.
