|Red Light Therapy is widely used as a non-invasive, natural and an alternative way for enhancing physical and cognitive performance. Elite athletes across the world have found the therapy effective in not only boosting physical performance but treating injuries and pain as well.
International regulatory authorities are trying to regulate the use of Red Light Therapy the same way they do performance enhancing drugs – it’s that EFFECTIVE!
Exercise or Sports Performance and Recovery
A number of clinical trials have shown that anyone- trained, untrained or an elite athlete, benefit from the use of natural and non-invasive Red Light Therapy in conjunction with physical exercise.
The Red and near infrared (NIR) light treatment, known as photobiomodulation, stimulates the mitochondria in cells and increases adenosine triphosphate (ATP) levels, the biological source of energy needed for muscle work, amongst other advantageous cellular activity.
Red Light Therapy has been shown to:
Cognitive Performance and Enhancement
The benefits of Red Light Therapy have increased the research efforts to study its effects on the human brain. It has been demonstrated that light is able to penetrate the cranium (skull) and reach the brain, and is fast surpassing drugs and surgery as an intervention of choice.
Strokes, Traumatic Brain Injury, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, and Mental Illnesses are all showing very promising responses to the alternative Red Light therapy.
The red and near infrared (NIR) light waves penetrate into the brain, generally to individual hemispheres rather than the whole brain, produces the following biological responses:
And all of these benefits from a natural, non-invasive, chemical-free, detox treatment. The Red Light Therapy has no adverse side effects, meaning it is a safe and beneficial approach for a wide range of cognitive applications.
