For muscles to contract they need energy, that energy comes from adenosine triphoshate ( also known as ATP.) ATP is the only energy source that muscles have to power their activity and these muscle fibers store only a limited supply of ATP. So, by increasing the supply of ATP to these muscle fibers MicroCurrent plays a crucial role in cell metabolism and plumping up those slack muscles. MicroCurrent also enhances fibroblast activity (collagen) and protein synthesis (elastin) because of the increased activity of ATP.
MicroCurrent impulses trigger a chemical reaction at a cellular level to increase the effectiveness of how our bodies use ATP (adenosine triphosphate), a protein that is referred to as ‘the energy of life’. MicroCurrent mimics the electrical signals from the brain to the message center of the muscle, which is the tendon, the MicroCurrent stimulates the tendon thus aiding in strengthening the muscles by bringing more definition to the face and body. By reproducing the body’s own biological current we can re-establish muscle memory naturally.
Emmanuel S. Burgos, and David Shechter. “Chemoenzymatic synthesis of S-nucleosyl amino acids (SNA), analogs of S-adenosyl-L-methionine and S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine and uses thereof”, Filed February 3, 2016, U.S. Provisional Patent Application No. 62/290,502; Filed January 25, 2017, International Patent Application No. PTC/US2017/14804.
Then, on the inside of the cell, ATP (Adenosine TriPhosphate) binds toanother site on the carrier and phosphorylates (adds one of its phospategroups, or -PO, to) one of theamino acids that is part of the carrier molecule.
