If you've read our previous blogs, we're sure you've noticed that we give a lot of attention to Adenosine Triphosphate, or ATP. There's a reason for this, as a primary benefit of our MyoLift True Microcurrent technology increases the production of ATP. But what is it? Why does it matter? That's what we're here to unpack today.
ATP was first discovered by a chemist named Karl Lohmann back in 1929. After it's discovery there was a snowball effect in its' understanding. With the combined studies and efforts of Paul D. Boyer and John E. Walker, it was further discovered that ATP had remarkable functions within our body.
ATP is recognized as the "energy of life" and drives a number of biological processes like photosynthesis, muscle contractions / re-education, protein synthesis and membrane transport. In other words, cellular energy is produced by ATP and leads to overall cell function!
When we're young, the process of the cell producing energy is constant and abundant. Think of a fully charged battery! But around the age of 35 things begin to change as the aging process really begins. At this point, the production of ATP in the cells begins to slow down and the cells stop performing at their full potential. The result is a reduction in our cell's ability to create collagen and elastin and the muscle cells become laxed and lose the energy to remain firm. Think of the body functioning with only a half-charged battery.
In addition to this, environmental factors such as sun damage, smoking and lifestyle begin to take a toll on our skin. That less consistent production of ATP means that our body is unable to replace damage being done, so negative effects of environment and lifestyle really begin to reflect on our body.
When Microcurrent treatment are integrated into skincare, the ATP is affected to encourage the following:
7E Wellness designed its' ATP Booster Gel Mask to help ignite ATP stimulation even further with the unique ingredient, Ergothioneine. Ergothioneine was intentionally formulated into the ATP Booster Gel Mask to maximize the anti-aging, results-oriented treatments of the microcurrent facial. You can learn all about the powerful anti-aging benefits of our ATP Booster Gel Mask by reading our blog highlighting its' purpose.
