1) Reducing inflammation
Red and infrared light therapy can be effective in reducing joint pain and inflammation in people with arthritis, especially rheumatoid arthritis. A 2000 review of 13 randomized controlled trials reported a 70% reduction in pain. In theory, red light therapy can release nitric oxide, thereby enhancing blood circulation, providing vital nutrients and oxygen to damaged tissue, promoting its repair and regeneration, and ultimately reducing pain and inflammation. Red light pain therapy is a less invasive and safe method of pain relief than traditional methods.
2) Maintaining healthy skin and mood
Red light therapy can improve skin health and reduce signs of aging by stimulating collagen and elastin production, repairing damage caused by UV rays, and reducing inflammation and bacteria. Studies have found it can improve skin conditions such as acne, sun spots, eye wrinkles, and enhance skin tone, roughness, and collagen density. Early clinical trials have also found that natural red and near-infrared light can treat painful skin conditions such as psoriasis, herpes and acne.
3)Wound Healing, Scars and Tissue Repair
Red light therapy has been found to promote wound healing and tissue repair by stimulating various physiological processes that contribute to cell regeneration, such as increased circulation. This can shorten healing time and improve recovery from injuries. Additionally, red light therapy can stimulate collagen production, which is essential for healthy skin, tissue and scar repair. Research has proven that red light therapy is effective in treating a range of skin conditions, including burns, scars, post-surgery healing and diabetic ulcers.
Red light can benefit sleep by helping to regulate the body's natural circadian rhythm and improve sleep optimization. Exposure to blue light is known to disrupt the body's production of the sleep hormone melatonin and interfere with the sleep-wake cycle. By exposing your eyes to light similar to sunlight, red light therapy can help reset your circadian rhythm, resulting in feeling more tired at night and more awake in the morning.
5)Full Body Wellness
Red light therapy is a natural way to enhance cellular health throughout the body, stimulating over 80 areas including muscle, blood, organ, bone, joint and skin health. By promoting homeostasis and optimizing the cellular respiration process that produces ATP energy, red light therapy has been shown to provide whole body benefits when combined with a healthy lifestyle.
