What is energizing potential?
The energizing potential is the ability of a product to modulate the cell’s natural energy production.
This is why we evaluate it. Among other things, we can perform high throughput measurements of ATP production.
The evaluation of the energy potential is used to demonstrate the energy efficiency of your molecules and to identify a risk of cytotoxicity.
The energizing potential of molecules
Indeed, cellular energy, in the form of ATP, is consumed very quickly. And it is also stored very little (about 85g in the whole human body). As a result, continuous production is vital for the survival of the cells. As a general rule, a healthy human being produces about 65 kg of ATP per day.
What’s more, a molecule is energizing when it stimulates the production of cellular energy. At Elysia Bioscience, we can confirm or rule out the energizing effect of a molecule by measuring the production of ATP in real-time and at high throughput.
Assessment of efficacy and cytotoxicity
In addition, a product can have an unexpected effect on cellular energy. It may consequently be cytotoxic. To make the most out of your products, it is important to evaluate their energy potential, including the risk of cytotoxicity. Such analysis, however, requires rigorous expertise to avoid erroneous results.

First, energy is produced in the form of a molecule: ATP (Adenosine-Tri-Phosphate).
What’s more, mitochondria are the small factories that produce energy (ATP). Indeed, this production is made via a production chain called the respiratory chain or Oxphos. Ultimately, the mitochondria are both an energy-producing factory and a lung: it consumes oxygen and produces carbon dioxide (CO2).
