11 BENEFITS FROM LED RED LIGHT THERAPY
Red light was then studied for its potential application in medicine, more specifically to find out if RLT could increase energy inside human cells.
The researchers hoped that RLT could be an effective way to treat the muscle atrophy, slow wound healing, and bone density issues caused by weightlessness during space travel.

The following article” Mitochondria, Revitalizes Your Skin, and Reduces Pain” is adapted published on September 6, 2018 from LinkedIn from Jill C. Carnahan, MD,which presents 11 benefits of LED.

We get so caught up in the material world that we often forget our body is actually mostly energy. Without getting too quantum on you, it’s important to remember that the physical part of you is only a small part of who you actually are.

Our bodies give off energy and we are affected by energy – but it’s so easy to forget because we can’t see it. This concept is also somewhat tricky to understand. It’s why some people are sensitive to EMF that’s put off by Wi-Fi devices, and how electroencephalography (EEG) scans of the the brain can measure energy emitted.

We are creatures that evolved to live in light. These days we spent about 90% of our time indoors and as a result have significantly reduced the amount of exposure we get to various light wavelengths. Also called photobiomodulation, red light therapy provides just the right wavelengths our body uses for rejuvenating processes.

The Importance of Light Wavelengths

Since the invention of the light bulb in 1879 we changed the light landscape completely. For the same reason people often recommend avoiding screens before bedtime, light has the distinct ability to affect our biology.

All light falls on a spectrum. Visible light ranges from 400 nm (close to ultraviolet) and 700 nm close to infrared). When it comes to red light therapy, the range is usually between 600 to 800 nm and often referred to as near infrared or NIR. This can be considered the therapeutic sweet spot of light therapy.

What Red Light Therapy Does in the Body

People skeptical of light therapy usually have a hard time believing it because we focus so much on the biochemical processes. But just like plants convert light energy into chemical energy with photosynthesis, we have processes in our body that allow us to take near infrared light and turn it into our cellular energy molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP)

ATP is the energy currency of our body – when you don’t have sufficient ATP processes in your body, you feel it in your own personal energy levels. Your body needs ATP for nearly every single process and without it you would die within seconds – this is actually how the poison cyanide works.

To build ATP, your body uses an enzyme called cytochrome c oxidase, which binds oxygen with nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and hydrogen (H). This takes the molecule NAD and makes it NADH, which produces ATP in the process.

We need sufficient cytochrome c oxidase and NADH to make ATP. If you have too much nitric oxide, it can swoop in and take over cytochrome c oxidase, so it’s not as available to make ATP. Too much nitric oxide can be caused by many things including, stress and illness.

Photobiomodulation stops nitric oxide from using up the cytochrome c oxidase enzyme so it can be available to make ATP.

Pretty cool, right?

This is why red light therapy is so effective, because it gives your body more energy molecules to work with. When your body has more ATP available it can focus on rejuvenating processes that it once had to put on hold. These include repairing your skin, reducing inflammation, and speeding up much needed recovery processes.

11 Science-backed Red Light Therapy Benefits

When you look at the research behind the benefits of photobiomodulation, a few themes come to light (pun intended). First, you’ll notice that a lot of the benefits have to do with skin and tissue. This could be because when it comes to your survival, repairing the wrinkles on your face is low priority, for example.

Essentially, when you free up ATP in the body with red light therapy, your body has more energy to work with. Scientifically backed benefits of red light therapy include:

· Stimulating the production of collagen and elastin

· Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

· Improving the appearance of stretch marks

· Increasing blood circulation

· Evening out skin complexion

· Speeding up workout recovery

· Reducing inflammation

· Reducing joint pain and arthritis symptoms

· Improving athletic performance

· Speeding up wound healing

Reducing symptoms of skin conditions, such as acne, rosacea, and eczema

Personally, I’ve had a lot of success with red light therapy in people who experience chronic pain or have autoimmune skin conditions. Because red light therapy reduces overall inflammation, especially in the skin, it’s often a treatment that provides a lot of relief to those who have previously suffered with little help from other therapy options. Anyone with eczema or rosacea will tell you how extremely frustrating and painful the condition can be, and red light therapy is a good option for people with these conditions.
