Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) - Your Body's Perfect Energy Source


Adenosine Triphosphate ATPEvery physiological process in every living organism requires energy.  From tissue generation, to muscle contraction, to neurotransmitter production, all cells require an energy source at their disposal to complete their needed processes.  Adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, is the cellular energy source which drives almost every physiological process in your body.

Without adenosine triphosphate, life as we know it would not exist.  In fact, ATP has been argued as being 2nd only to DNA in importance to all living things.  Plants, animals, and even viruses all rely on this macromolecule to supply energy to cells to do thousands of physiological processes.  Recent findings have shown ATP also acts in the nervous system as a fast neurotransmitter which elevates its importance in the human body.

As one might expect, adenosine triphosphate is essential to the healing process.  When tissue is damaged, the body needs to create new cells to replace the destroyed ones.  ATP provides the energy to fuel the production of new cells.  Because new cell production takes an enormous amount of energy, cellular ATP levels are often diminished in areas of the body where healing needs to take place.

Clinical evidence has shown that very low level  microcurrent electrical stimulation can increase ATP in tissue up to 500%.1  Increased ATP, with increased amino acid production and protein synthesis, is thought to be one reason why this type of current has been shown in clinical studies to accelerate wound healing by as much as 150-250%.2
