Red Light Therapy – It’s all about the Mitochondria

Infrared therapy causes a process called photobiomodulation (PBM) to occur. The mitochondria are stimulated when the cell is exposed to red light and near-infrared light causing it to ramp up its activity.

Red light therapy is an effective and natural way to improve your overall health and increase the body’s ability to heal. It has been found to help with medical conditions, fitness recovery, as well as skin rejuvenation. When mitochondria are stimulated by red and near-infrared light it causes the mitochondria to produce more adenosine triphosphate (ATP) which is the primary energy source of a cell. Much like your car cannot run well when low on gas your cells do not function as optimally when low on ATP.
Red and near-infrared light therapy give your mitochondria a boost that gets everything in the body working at a heightened level.

Athletic Performance

Red light therapy has the amazing ability to reduce the rate of creatine kinase and lactic acid. These properties cause massive muscle damage which is brought on by strenuous bought of exercise. With less muscle damage your body is able to more rapidly repair itself.

Cosmetic Improvements

Exposing your skin to red light over a period of time shows proven eye-catching improvements in both the texture and appearance of the skin. This happens because the red-light exposure stimulates fibroblasts that secrete collagen. Collagen maintains skin tissue. As collagen production increases it allows for an increase in the elasticity of the skin, reducing signs of aging.


A study monitoring effects of red light on diabetics with unhealing wounds revealed promising results. It was shown that those treated with red light had a dramatic increase in blood flow which could reduce healing time.

Brain Health

Much research has been conducted on the effects of red-light therapy on brain health.

This has many possible implications, Including possible treatments for:

  • Brain Injury
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Dementia

Hair Loss

Red light therapy has been shown to dramatically resolve symptoms that accompany pattern baldness or hair loss.

Neurological Treatments

Red light therapy targets viable nerve cells and stimulates new growth in the treated area. This allows for the healthy support of nerves and a significant reduction of nerve pain. There are many options available to combat nerve pain but there are downsides to those. Many of those treatments are not long-term and can seriously affect your health. No other treatment option can efficiently treat widespread nerve pain as well as red light therapy can. Treatment is as easy as basking in the glow of the red-light waves, having the assurance that it’s a safe and natural technique

Testosterone Treatment

Red Light Therapy has been found to help raise levels of testosterone safely and efficiently. Using this therapy can effectively boost testosterone levels. Low levels of testosterone bring on many side effects including:

  • Low libido
  • Reduced bone mass and density
  • Reduced muscle mass and increased fat
  • Infertility
  • Insomnia
  • Mood swings, irritability, and depression
  • Lack of focus
