Light may seem like a relatively inconsequential phenomenon—after all, any child can flip on a light switch. However, at its most basic level, light is pure energy. Made up of packets of energy called photons, light from sources like the sun power almost all biological processes on the planet. Without light, plants wouldn’t grow, animals couldn’t eat, and humanity would say “goodbye” very quickly.
More than powering the food chain, light is also instrumental in keeping us in peak condition. For example, Ultraviolet or UV light has long been recognized as essential for vitamin D production in our skin, which helps keep our bones strong.
Similarly, Red Light in the 630-660 nanometer range and near-infrared Light in the 830-860 nanometer range has been shown to penetrate the skin and soft tissue to supercharge important cellular processes like mitochondrial function and ATP production.
In other words, red light & near-infrared light therapy feeds your cells’ energy to help optimize foundational performance.
