Recharge Mitochondria, Recruit ATP Energy, & Restore Brain Health

 

Your brain is like a powerful battery that needs proper charging to function at its best. Mitochondria, the tiny energy factories in your brain cells, play a critical role in regulating neurotransmission, memory, learning, and mood. Without sufficient charging, these processes may become impaired, impacting your mental well-being.

The Science Behind Photobiomodulation

Transcranial Photobiomodulation (tPBM) is a groundbreaking technique that harnesses the power of specific, low-intensity light to stimulate brain activity without resorting to invasive procedures. This innovative method has garnered considerable attention in recent years due to its potential therapeutic benefits for a wide range of neurological and mental health conditions.

 

How tPBM Works:

While the mechanisms behind tPBM are not fully understood, it is thought that the light helps to increase blood flow and oxygenation in the brain, which can lead to improved cognitive function. In addition, tPBM has been shown to increase levels of neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin, which can further improve brain function.

At the core of tPBM technology lies the interaction between photons (light particles) and brain cells, with a special focus on the mitochondria – the cell's powerhouse responsible for generating ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the primary energy currency of cells. When light is absorbed by mitochondria, similar to sunlight charging solar panels, it triggers a cascade of biochemical reactions that enhance cellular energy production. This surge in cellular energy leads to improved neuronal activity and communication within the brain.

As we age, our brains naturally produce less ATP, the energy currency of the cell. This can lead to cognitive decline, including problems with mood, memory and focus. However, there are ways to help boost ATP production and keep your brain sharp.

 

One way is to recharge your mitochondria. Mitochondria are the power plants of the cell, and they produce ATP. When they become damaged or dysfunctional, ATP production can decrease. There are a few key things you can do to help keep your mitochondria healthy: eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly, and get enough sleep.

 

Another way to boost ATP production is to recruit new ATP molecules by using Titan-iR™ or Titan-iR Pro™. This can help restore your brain's action potential. Action potentials are electrical impulses that help nerve cells communicate. When they decline, it can lead to neurological disorders. By taking an active approach with Titan-iR™ or Titan-iR Pro™, you can help keep your brain functioning at its best.

An Analogy: Your Brain as a Garden:

To grasp the concept better, envision your brain as a lush garden that thrives on sunlight. Transcranial photobiomodulation (tPBM) acts like the perfect amount of sunlight provided to your brain, resulting in a rejuvenating "boost" of energy. Just as watering your garden enables plants to absorb vital nutrients, tPBM increases blood flow and oxygenation in your brain, nourishing it and promoting optimal functionality. Consequently, your brain becomes more efficient and performs better, leading to enhanced cognitive abilities, such as improved memory retention and sharper focus.

Titan-iR & Titan-iR Pro are both innovative advanced biotherapeutic devices designed toenhance brain health, mental wellness, and cognitive performance. However, they differ in their therapeutic mechanisms and intended applications.

Titan-iR: Advanced Spectrum Biotherapeutics

The Titan-iR™ device utilizes a single therapeutic window, meaning that it emits a clinically unique spectrum of infrared photons. These photons stimulate the biochemical production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the primary energy source for cellular processes, within the braincells. Titan-iR enhances cell performance and fosters general brain health by increasing ATP generation.

 

Titan-iR Pro: Advanced + Deep Spectrum Biotherapeutics

Titan-iR Pro features an advanced dual therapeutic window. In addition to stimulating ATP production like Titan-iR, it further emits a second spectrum window of photons targeting the neurons voltage-gated ion channels. These channels play a critical role in neuronal signal transmission. By modulating these channels, the Titan-iR Pro can further enhance brain health, mental wellness, and cognitive performance.

 

Choosing between Titan-iR and the Titan-iR Pro largely depends on the individual's needs and goals. Titan-iR is a great choice for individuals looking to support their overall brain health and mental wellness. It can be particularly beneficial for those experiencing early mood disorders, fatigue issues or cognitive decline related to aging, stress, or other lifestyle factors. Prolonged periods of Titan-iR™ use can provide impressive cognitive performance, mental wellness, and mental acuity results. Titan-iR Pro, with its dual therapeutic windows, offers a more comprehensive clinical approach to brain health, mental wellness, and cognitive performance optimization. It may be a better fit for individuals seeking more of immediate impact of brain health, mental wellness, or cognitive performance beyond baseline levels. Additionally, people who have attempted pharmacological or medical device interventions may be a perfect fit for Titan-iR Pro. Individual case studies have shown to increase p300 Brain Voltage while speeding up p300 brain reaction time by 30%. Data also supports reliable responses up to 60 days.

 

It's important to consult with a healthcare provider to determine which device is the most suitable based on the individual's unique circumstances and health objectives. Individual results may vary.

Frequency Asked Questions

What’s Transcranial Photobiomodulation (tPBM)?

Transcranial Photobiomodulation (tPBM) is a non-invasive therapy that delivers clinical levels of infrared energy to neurons in the brain. Recent research has found that when clinical levels of near-infrared energy activate neurons, they produce protective and anti-inflammatory biochemical processes in the brain which assist with action potential. These biochemical effects have led researchers to designate transcranial Photobiomodulation as a new approach to brain health and mental wellness.

 

Can Transcranial Photobiomodulation Penetrate The Skull, Creating a Therapeutic Effect?

Yes. The device must incorporate advanced technology like Titan-iR™ and Titan-iR Pro™. To penetrate through the skull and into the brain, clinical devices need the deeper absorption capacity of a high-powered photodiode device that delivers the therapeutic wavelengths of infrared energy. The majority of the devices on the market are extremely low powered for surface application. In optimal conditions, research has shown infrared energy to penetrate as deeply as 5cm.

 

Brain Health and Mental Wellness Optimization

Daily Usage: 1-2 times per day, recommended in the morning and/or early afternoon 

  (Use of device 4 hours before bedtime is not recommended, as the user's sleep may be disrupted)

 

Weekly Duration: Minimum of 3 days per week (Ideally with a break between days)

 

Initial Treatment Phase: Average of 15 total treatments 

 

Long-Term Usage:  Once per week or up to a maximum of five days per week. The average is three days.

Cognitive Performance Optimization

Titan-iR™ and Titan-iR Pro™ may be used for a temporary increase in cognitive performance or mental acuity. Typical use is 15 to 30 minutes before activity or at a specific time in the day when an increase in cognitive performance or mental acuity is needed. Please note: Use of Titan-iR™ at higher power levels, or longer than a single treatment, can increase side effects.

*How Long Should Photobiomodulation Be Used for Brain Health or Mental Wellness? 

Studies have identified that as little as one single session of t-PBM may produce a decrease in symptoms, but this effect seems to be temporary. More consistent improvement was observed in studies that used multiple sessions during 3–8 weeks for the management of mental wellness symptoms. The safety profile of Photobiomodulation suggests it could be used as maintenance treatment for responders to traditional interventions or therapies. However, the only evidence for long-term use comes from a case report.

How is Transcranial Photobiomodulation Different From Other Device-Based Treatments for Brain Health and Wellness?

Typical transcranial medical device treatments modulate the electric potential of a neuron. These are electric or magnetic currents devices such as Electric Convulsive Therapy (ECT), Transcranial Direct or Alternating Current Stimulation (tDCS), or Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS or TMS). 

How is Photobiomodulation Different From Other Light-Based Treatments?

Photobiomodulation is noninvasive treatment which does not involve medication or any type of injection. Near Infrared Photons are non-ionizing electromagnetic particles, which are absorbed by specific endogenous chromophores and are minimally dissipated as thermal energy. High powered medical lasers are used for ablative treatments and produce heating.

 

Can Photobiomodulation Be Combined With Other Antidepressant and Pharmacologic Treatments?

Many published studies include patients receiving Photobiomodulation in combination with psychotherapy and antidepressant medications. No serious adverse events were reported for these combinations. There are no reports on the combination of Photobiomodulation with other transcranial treatments such as rTMS, TDCS, or ECT. Researchers have deduced that there is no rationale for avoiding the simultaneous use of tPBM with other device-based treatments. Secondary effects of potentiation of the antidepressant effects might occur, and some side effects such as memory impairment with ECT can potentially be mitigated.
