Acupuncture boosts energy

Qi is energy system in Chinese medicine. This is equivalent to Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) energy system which is the universal energy source in all biological systems. ATP is energy-carrying molecule found in the cells of all living things and provides energy to drive many processes in living cells such as all muscle movements, heart beats, nerve signals and chemical reactions inside the body. ATP carried energy is obtained from food molecules and oxygens. It is estimated that the human body uses roughly 2 × 1026 transient molecules of ATP or more than the bodies weight; 160 kg of ATP in a day.

When the energy is needed by the cells, ATP is break down to ADP to release energy for the cells to use. After ATP being and energy are used, the cells restore ATP by converting ADP back to ATP. These processes occur in the cell membrane called mitochondria. Because our body consume so much energy in a day, we need constantly refuel to restore energy by eating nutritious food and breathing in oxygen and the heart and blood circulatory system need continually supply this substances to the cells to produce energy ATP.

If any part of the pathway is blocked, the qi and energy supply and circulation will be blocked. We would feel lack of energy and tired. Acupuncture helps improve blood circulation, keep sufficient energy supply to the body and boost our energy.
