Microcurrent and ATP

Microcurrent and ATP Microcurrent has been reasearched to show direct effect on Adenosine triphosphate, a coenzyme used as an energy carrier in the cells of all known organisms (ATP)
  • 10 – 500 micro amps is the range of current that microcurrent is at it’s most effective
  • Electrons = current flow
  • Microcurrent has shown an ncrease of ATP production by up to 500%
  • Microcurrent has also shown an increase in protein synthesis by 70%
  • This also then increases amino acid transport 40%
  • By increaseing the electron flow this then increases potential difference allowing the flow of life giving electrons

Microcurrent and Signal Transduction

Extra cellular ATP opens Ca+2 ion channels, activated and mediates signal trasduction mechanisms.
  • In virto, ATP release increased 50 fold
  • In vitro, ATP in cells increasy by 163%
  • In vivo, increased cAMP in human lumpocytes
  • The frequency (below 150 hz), waveform and signal strength of small applied electic fields creates mesurable changes in signal transduction in vitro and in vivo.
