Adenosine a Powerful Anti-Aging Agent
In this skin care and cosmetic industry there are many ingredients that claim to have the perfect results that been described. But very few of them are that deem fit to their qualities. If I’ve to choose one then I’ll choose adenosine. Adenosine is a chemical that is present in all human cells. It readily combines with phosphate to form various chemical compounds including adenosine mono-phosphate (AMP) and adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP). It is said to be a life’s energy currency, the universal energy storage unit used in practically every synthetic reaction that happens in our bodies.
Adenosine tri-phosphate (or ATP) is the primary carrier of energy for the dominant part of cell. This incorporates the synthesis of DNA. Humans use ATP like a battery, storing and using energy when needed and it appears to be, in mind boggling ways. Adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP) is chemically classified as a nucleoside tri-phosphate. Its primary biological use is as a coenzyme in various processes involving the transfer of chemical energy. Research has shown that topical use of adenosine tri-phosphate has strong potential as a cell communicating ingredient and as an inflammation modulator.
Adenosine has shown powerful properties of anti-aging agent. It helps improve and tighten the flabby skin and fine lines, resulting in smooth and young skin. The scenario behind this miracle work is simple; it increases the production of dermal fibroblast proteins (elastin and collagen), which are basic part of skin structure. It also helps in mitigating the collagen degradation due to free radicals caused by UV radiations. By doing so it reduces skin sagginess and improves the skin tone. It also increases blood flow to the outer layers of skin to repair damaged skin and cell volume resulting in a fuller appearance with youthful look.
Adenosine has shown powerful properties of anti-wrinkling agent. It penetrates deeply into the skin to help prevent wrinkles, reduce UV sun damage. It is particularly effective for crow’s feet and forehead frown lines. Cosmetics researchers have proven that adenosine is an effective ingredient in wrinkle creams. A research conducted in France treated 126 women with an adenosine based cream on their crow’s feet lines and also did this experiment with 84 women on their forehead lines. After two months of twice-daily treatments, both of the adenosine based products increased skin smoothness and reduced deep wrinkles in the eye and forehead areas. Surprisingly, big improvements occurred on coarse wrinkles after three weeks of treatment.
Research has also shown that adenosine based hair products has shown the properties to promote thickening of hair on people with thinning hair.
Adenosine is said to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Topical treatment of adenosine based products has shown drastically increase in tissue repair and reconstruction. Its topical use has also shown that it can accelerate the healing process of skin wounds at an extremely fast speed, which never seen or reported in the past.

An organic compound from adenosine, which is formed by the hydrolysis of yeast nucleic acids. All living things need a continual supply of energy in order to function. Animals obtain their energy by oxidizing foods, plants obtain energy by using chlorophyll to trap sunlight. However, before the energy can be implemented, it must first be changed into a form that the organism can readily use. This special form, or carrier of energy, is the molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP). In humans, ATP serves as the major energy source within the cell to drive a number of biological processes such as protein synthesis. The cell breaks down ATP by hydrolysis to yield adenosine diphosphate (ADP), which is then further broken down to yield adenosine monophosphate (AMP). Research into topically applied adenosine triphosphate is just beginning, but it appears to have strong potential as a cell-communicating ingredient and as an inflammation modulator.
