B-E-St ® Bio- Energy-Stimulation
A device with leading technology that uses Biostimulant currents of very low intensity; it achieves an increased energy source ATP (Adenosine triphosphate – the chemical basis of all living cells) by 500-800%, it reduces pain and restores injuries immediately. This form of power restores the cells, using the frequency of each organ as a little reminder to help these cells recover and the body to work better.
The features of BE-St are surprisingly large but the therapeutic results in the treatment of tendon and muscle injuries and chronic pain are the most important.
B-E-St is known for : reducing stress, rejuvenating the human organism, improving the total levels of energy, promoting a rapid recovery from fatigue caused by athletic activities, reducing inflammation, increasing mobility,improving sleep quality, accelerating wound healing, helping cell and bone regeneration, strengthening the immune system with the production of leukocytes.
How microcurrent stimulation produces ATP (adenosine triphosphate)
– A mechanism
Steven Bailey, DC
The molecules of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) are the storage operators and distribution of energy within the body. The separation of ATP to ADP (phosphoric acid) produces energy.
The separation of the phosphate bond causes the production of energy. This energy is used in almost all cell reactions associated with energy. Also, in addition to being integral to the function of almost all cells of our body, ATP function can be viewed by categories of activity. Those essential functions include: 1) muscle contraction, 2) protein biosynthesis, 3) neural transmission and 4) active transport across cell membranes.
The process of muscle contraction goes as follows: each muscle spindle is composed of muscle fibers. Inside the muscle fibers are many myofibrils. The myofibrils are suspended in a fluid substance called sarcoplasm. Inside the sarcoplasm there are thousands of mitochondria floating around, containing large amounts of ATP.
The ATP is the key that activates the muscle contraction process of the ATP activity of the exposed myosin head. When the ATP is exposed to the myosin head it is separated and energy is released. It should be noted that magnesium is necessary in ATP reactions that release energy. Before the ATP can turn into an “active ATP,” magnesium must be joined between the second and third phosphate. Clinically, magnesium deficiency may be associated with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.
The composition of almost any chemical compound requires energy. This action is the ATP, which is very important for protein biosynthesis, phospholipids, purines, pyrimidines, and hundreds (if not thousands) of other substances. Let us take as an example of the ATP involvement in the process of protein-synthesis: a single protein can consist of several thousand amino acids. You need to separate four phosphate bonds to link two amino acids together.
To the fullest extent, two “ATP” could serve as energy for joining two amino acids, so if the protein is composed of 10,000 amino acids, it can take up to 20,000 ATP to form a single protein. It should also be noted that amino acids use “APT ” indirectly after they get co-transferred into the cells.
ATP is essential for nerve transmission. The nerve transmission involves the release of the nerve transmitter substance from the presynaptic terminal into the synaptic cleft, which can be explained as a space between two nerves. The nerve transmitter substance bridges the cleft and attaches to the receptor of another cell. The nerve transmitter substance must be constantly recreated in the presynaptic terminal for future release. The energy for this formation is provided by ATP. There are many mitochondria in the presynaptic terminal which create and store ATP for this process. […]
In the postsynaptic end, the next neural cell, and through the active transport of sodium, potassium, and calcium, the concentration differences in the neuronal cell membrane triggers the nerve (firing) and the transmission of nerve signals to the next presynaptic terminal. These concentration gradients could be made without an active transport of ATP through the neuronal cell membranes.
The active transport is through the release of energy in ATP decomposition of phosphate bonds (see Figure 1 for the chemical structure of ATP, decay and energy-release). Active transport is a means to getting molecules across cell membranes, either inside or outside the cell worked, next to a concentration gradient […] or 3 which can be electric or barometric (pressure gradient). Sodium, potassium, glucose, amino acids and many other items transported thereby.
In short, the ATP is the “currency of energy” of the body. In fact, any cytological, histological or physiological process is mediated by the ATP, which constitutes ATP as clinically important. Theoretically our body produces all the ATP we need, but in reality it does not. The microcurrent stimulation between 200-800 microamperes is a way of overloading the tissue with ATP, which will reside there until needed. In this way it can be explained much of the research that shows a 200% increase in healing as it applies to hundreds of situations. Clinically, any healing process takes a large proportion of ATP and can be accelerated through a means of increasing ATP into the tissue. Microcurrent stimulation accomplishes this by increasing ATP in the tissue by up to 400%.
Microcurrent stimulation within the body causes radically increased production of ATP levels. This allows the body to perform any process of healing in a much faster pace.
ATP is a dynamic reservoir of energy in our body. Glucose serves as a long lasting tank, but it doesn’t do much to provide the body with fuel. The glucose is first converted to ATP, which is the body energy storage and distribution.From the first moment that the ATP molecule is created it gets consumed within a minute. The reversion rate (turnover) of the ATP is very high. However , the body has a large storage capacity of ATP. To exemplify, one can build warehouses of ATP. Unlike other forms of Electrotherapy such as therapy interfering currents ( IF ) or transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation ( TENS ) with higher amounts of current and galvanic Electrotherapy, microcurrents are unique in that they have a cumulative effect instead of a downward .The rest of the electrical stimulation devices reduce ATP levels . Moreover, we still think these devices in terms of the production of ATP. It has been proven that any stimulation over 1,000 microamps causes stabilization (plateauing) and then reducing ATP. The microcurrent therapy [ …] is the best choice for increasing histological healing . Research and clinical trials showed that with microcurrent stimulation, a drop of 40-50 % occurs during the healing of ulcers and ligament strain / strains. Fractures heal faster and hypertrophic scarring (keloid scars) regenerates as more healthy and strong. Other effects of microcurrent stimulation associated with ATP include reducing inflammation, edema and swelling , and increased physical endurance in sports.
From a clinical standpoint, the therapeutic effects of microcurrent stimulation are not limited to increased ATP production, but also in the actual dramatic reduction in wound healing time by half. The mechanism for increased ATP production through microcurrent stimulation can be explained. […]
A tool of microcurrent therapy provides direct current (DC), and thus the nature of the flow of electricity is the same. Figure 2 (creating a rank of proton gradient with microcurrents) shows a typical circuit in which the electrons flow from the cathode to the anode, while the current is in a form of negative ions, flowing from the anode to the cathode. It is safe to perceive the negative ions as hedges for electrons flowing in the opposite direction. This includes the circuit.
Of more clinical relevance is what happens at the anode and cathode, then the process that takes place in the circuit itself. Around the cathode, which is negative, there is a negative environment hydroxyl ion (OH). This is caused by the interaction of electrons with the water molecules in the cathode, hydrolyzing the water molecules into hydrogen and hydroxyl molecules. The same reaction takes place at the anode. However, because the anode is positive in polarity, the protons (hydrogen ions) create the environment around the anode.
Instantaneously, the hydrogen and the hydroxyl ions exist around the electrodes with pads (pad electrodes). However, over time, the ionic environment turns into hydrogen around the anode and hydroxyl around the cathode. Because hydrogen is the one that leads to the creation of ATP, that which follows as a residual effect after the microcurrent stimulator, is the production of ATR which continues in the same way.
Meanwhile, in the negative electrode, the ATP production ceases immediately with the end of stimulation, because there is no residual hydrogen in the region. The protons (H +) have a very strong effect here. Chart 2 shows that protons diffuse to an area with fewer protons, ie from the anode side to the cathode side. While protons (H +) migrate through the tissue, causing an increased generation of ATP.
This creation of ATP can be explained by the theory of the Mitchell ATP production process of the inner membrane of the mitochondria chimeiosmosi (chemiosmosis). This theory explains the way that mitochondria form ATP via respective processes such as the electron transport chain and the cycle of the cyclic acid (cycle of Krebs). In Mitchell’s theory, we see that the ionized hydrogen ( protons) triggers the electron transport chain through association with NADH to generate NADH +, as with FAD to create FADH2 and other mediators . The net effect of each cycle electron transport chain is the infiltration of 6 hydrogen ions between the inner and outer mitochondrial membranes. At this point, the hydrogen is activated by ATP thanks to the high hydrogen content between the membranes and activates ATP production . This is done by adding a group of the phosphate salt to ADP so as to generate ATP ( see Figure 1 [ … ] ) . This process is known as oxidative phosphorylation. The ATP is transferred at this point out of the mitochondria within the cell cytoplasm where it is stored until used.
ATP can be produced by our body in many other ways than the ones mentioned above. However, it is an extremely dynamic source of energy, that can be depleted in cases of heavy injuries, exhaustion or minor injuries. The microcurrent therapy provides a unique solution in tissue healing .
Clinically , Electrotherapy is also a therapy of choice for deep wounds, because it’s not so intense.
We must also remember that Electrotherapy (enhanced with microcurrents) has many of the qualities of other electric therapies. For example, it is effective for pain control , relaxation of muscles and stimulation of the nerves. Also it is considered to be a unique method of treatment since it increases vascular permeability while working as an electro-acupuncture device as well. The tools of microcurrent electrical stimulation ( TENS ) have the ability to detect the bioelectric state of the human body and have proven to be an insurmountable achievement in the clinical field.
