Muscular and Performance Enhancing Benefits of PBMt

Photobiomodulation (PBM) improves muscular performance and mitochondrial function through a process known as cytochrome c oxidase (CCO) activation.

When light is applied to muscle tissue, it interacts with CCO, a key enzyme involved in cellular respiration and energy production within mitochondria.

This interaction stimulates CCO activity, leading to increased production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the primary energy currency of cells. With higher ATP levels, muscle cells have more energy available for contraction and endurance, resulting in improved muscular performance.

Furthermore, PBM enhances mitochondrial function by promoting mitochondrial biogenesis, the process by which new mitochondria are generated within cells. By increasing the number and efficiency of mitochondria, PBM enhances cellular energy production and overall metabolic function.

This dual mechanism of action—CCO activation and mitochondrial biogenesis—makes PBM a potent tool for optimizing muscular performance, enhancing endurance, and accelerating recovery from exercise-induced fatigue.
