You are right, Dots. It is an enzyme not a hormone.
ATP consists of adenosine — composed of an adenine ring, a ribose sugar—, and three phosphate groups (triphosphate). Adenosine-5'-triphosphate (ATP) is a multifunctional nucleotide used in cells as a coenzyme. It is often called the "molecular unit of currency" of intracellular energy transfer. ATP transports chemical energy within cells for metabolism.

riphosphate

The anterior pituitary synthesizes and secretes important endocrine hormones, such as ACTH, TSH, PRL, GH, endorphins, FSH, and LH.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pituitary

The zona fasciculata zone of the adrenal glands secretes a basal level of cortisol but can also produce bursts of the hormone in response to adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) from the anterior pituitary.

Thanks for the shared facts ‘Godess. My original doc shredded all my med records. I was with her 12 yrs. Drs Fox caught my adrenal fatigue. They gave me a copy of the lab results to share with that endo. I complained of Wilson’s syndrome (not Wilson’s disease a copper/liver condition), but the endo/doc ignored it and me. Today my preferred T3 med is GTA, a natural pig gland taken morn and mid-day without food. Cytomel hurts with extra heart palpitations and body ache.

I recently lost my job due to in-house political squabble between Elks and American Legion associations, the Gulfport chapters in a post Katrina storm building share. 17 hours became 2 then not pay since 6 wks ago. I do want my $100 dollars for those collective 6 weeks. I cannot hold down a full time job. The employment bureau gives me the run a round and no solid leads because there are few in this area small enough in my under 15hours p/t to list. I hunt alone! I must do without some major meds I use. The meds help me maintain health enough to work p/t. I presently have no money, no insurance, and the meds are direct from a pharmaceutical supplier of Doctorsnutrition.com, my source. The church assistance programs I have asked do not honor the natural medicines. My 5-HTP is pure not standard over-the-counter type and my 30-day supply is $56. I seem to find one step forward; two steps back a holding pattern I cannot wait to break. I am not bed ridden or hospital bound so things are gradually improving in my book.

Ortho molecular medicine is not recognized by the insurance industry as well as the allopathic medical industry. When it comes to cancer more patients die from the treatment than from the cancer when treated by allopathic means. The percentage of remissions and actual healing is higher at the Ortho molecular industry forms of medicine. Society needs to learn to accept healing as a result not just a hopeful eventual mission- statement. (Sorry, I did seem to have 2cents!)

I've heard you talk about Rev. T3 dominance ... articles pls. Need to understand what that means in the big thyroid picture. Hypercoagulation? Lucy, you have more 'splainin' to doooo. :)

(However, I do not plan to add this to my list of things to have, ty very much.) :P

Margie, didn't know ATP was a hormone: knew it was for cellular health and I take CoQ10 for heart energy support.

Now you've given me something else to look up! Never heard of this, but you know I've been sidelined by Adrenal Fatigue.

Have you been diagnosed w/Reverse T3 Dominance?
How about Hypercoagulation?

www.wiki.com/citric acid cycle
The migraines are violent, the bloating occurs, and indigestion are not fun. The gradual and constant pain has been reduced by reducing the toxins my body dislikes. This is a yeast additive. I have the early stages of Addison's Disease/ Adrenal Fatigue. The hormones ATP and Cortisol are in short supply in me. The guess I am making is something in my citric acid cycle goes haywire so I am researching to find natural solutions, as the pro meds are not my friends.

Margie, I bet you don't like having to learn all this. What a challenge. What are your symptoms when you've had it? ...and it's even in organic herbs? too much. Thank you for sharing information.

Margie,
bummer that you react to so much. A friend reacts to citrus but not to citric acid when it is in products.
Is your post a quote from a website? if so, culd you please give us the URL of the website? thanks. Barb

My Mother reacts to the citric acid that is added to fruit juices but is able to tolerate eating grapefruit - but is more sensitive to oranges and lemons. It takes a lot of effort to figure out what is actually going into your food these days.

No matter what you call it, I am intolerant of it in all foods. The yeast based food additive is a monster found in beverages and medicines too. It is common in soft drinks. All foods are now my no-no’s, when citric acid is there. it is added to organic dried herbs, many processed foods, and some fresh foods in a package.
Citric acid has several forms and meanings. One is a derivative of citrus fruit. Two, another is a derivative of yeast. Three, Yet another is a human digestive process in between stages of extracting a nutrient from it’s source during the digestive actions called a citric acid cycle,(also known as the tricarboxylic acid cycle (TCA cycle), or , the Krebs cycle, or more rarely, the Szent-Györgyi-Krebs cycle.). Citric acid is an organic acid, it is the government E number E330. The purity is Food Chemical Codex (FCC) controlled and government listed as a natural preservative, and as a flavor (adding a sour taste to things). In science, it’s important as a middle step in the citric acid cycle in the metabolism of virtually all living things.
Citric acid exists in measurable amounts naturally in a variety of fruits and vegetables, commonly known in citrus fruits. Lemons and limes have particularly high concentrations. The refractive index of sugar and citric acid are similar almost identical. How do they measure the differences? The good measure of sweetness is the sugar/acid ratio for soft drinks and orange juice. Infrared sensors measure both sugar content and acidity by detecting sugars and citric acid through their characteristic molecular vibrations in commercial processing for an accurate assessment of sweetness. Is this rocket science we are asked to eat?
The discovery of citric acid is in the 8th century. Medieval scholars knew the acidic nature of lemon and limejuices back in the 13th century. Mass microbial production started after World War I. The American food chemist James Currie, in early 1900’s, worked better than Penicillium with Aspergillus niger, each a species of mold as a citric acid producer, The industrialists at Pfizer began major production using corn steep liquor, molasses, hydrolyzed corn starch or other cheap sweets fed the mold. Then the mold life is filtered out of the solution. Citric acid gets precipitated with calcium hydroxide, (lime) to produce calcium citrate, a salt via sulfuric acid treatment. Chemists can control the pH to get soap and detergent. They control the saturation point for water softeners. The pharmaceutical industry uses citric acid in high concentrations instead of nitric now. Yeast derived citric acid is added to ice cream to keep the cream fats separated, sunny hair products to bleach to a lighter color, and a photo-processing staple at the developing lab. It is an environmentally benign cleaning agent. The versatile nature of citric acid makes it useful in the steps to create stain less steel. It is sold in a white powder beside canning supplies in many stores. If you eat too many citric acid foods the enamel of your teeth are weakened and higher concentrates at low pH will blind you.
I must avoid this food additive made from yeast. I can enjoy an occasional piece of fruit in the natural whole food state sparingly. Nevertheless, I must only drink clean Pellegrino sparkling natural water as my sparkling celebratory beverage. Are you aware that you may be affected in a negative way by the-yeast-cheap and sweet-additive but do not know it? See Wiki for more in-depth details…
