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 our planet. Without light, plants wouldn’t grow, animals couldn’t survive, and humanity wouldn’t exist.
More than powering the food chain, light is instrumental in keeping us healthy. For example, ultraviolet light is essential for vitamin D production in our skin which helps keep our bones strong. Similarly, red & near-infrared light 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 & near-infrared light therapy optimizes cellular processes which help to bulletproof your biological systems.
