The microcurrent encourages the production of ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) which leads to the creation and stimulation of structural proteins like elastin and collagen. Collagen is the main protein that your body uses to build muscle
Microcurrent has been shown to increase energy production (ATP) in cells by 500%, reduce cytokines that cause inflammation, and increase secretions in various tissues including Substance P that reduces pain. There are numerous studies indicating its ability to improve healing in wounds and fractures.
BCX Ultra Microcurrent Accessories delivers professional results for your body’s different tissue type have their own signature electrical frequencies, which can be disrupted by diseases or injuries.
Microcurrent therapy restores the cells’ frequencies, resulting in improvements in inflammation, pain and healing. Microcurrent therapy increases in the cells’ ATP, which is the energy that fuels all biochemical functions in the human body. Microcurrent therapy can also increase protein synthesis, which is needed for tissue repair. Increase in blood flow and decrease in inflammation then reduces pain and spasms, as well as increased range of motion and functionality. Promotes growth of new healthy cells and stimulates the immune system. It also can promote DNA synthesis activation of T-Lymphocytes, Insulin Binding, Calcium Channel Opening, and Fibroblastic Activation.
How to increase ATP production in the mitochondria by 500%
Setting the BCX Ultra intensity between 2 and 33 will give you 50 uA to 1,000 uA using the BCX Ultra electrodes. A famous study shows Microcurrent frequencies can increase ATP production in the mitochondria by 500%. It is often quoted by microcurrent enthusiasts. Here’s a link to the original study in case it is of interest to you: http://www.bodyworktherapy.biz.scihub.org/PDFs/MC_PF_ATP_Generation.PDF
Here is a very brief summary of what was found: “it was demonstrated that ATP production increased five times with currents from 50 uA to 1000 uA. With currents exceeding 1000 uA, which is the milliamp range, ATP production leveled, and with 5000 uA ATP production was reduced slightly. Microcurrent was also shown to increase protein synthesis and amino acid
