How Does Near Near-Infrared Light Therapy Restore Your Energy?

Infrared light therapy is a safe and natural treatment for skin, muscles, neurological disorders, and more. Near-infrared light therapy (also known as photobiomodulation and red light therapy) is gaining popularity as a natural treatment due to its effectiveness in treating a variety of ailments, from wrinkles to dementia, with complete safety. Unlike tanning booths, near-infrared light therapy does not use harmful UV rays. Instead, much safer red and near infrared light targets the mitochondria, the energy generators in our cells, causing them to soak up this light and ultimately produce more energy.

Let’s take a closer look at this process to discover exactly how near-infrared light therapy restores your body’s energy:

Near-Infrared Light Is Absorbed By Cells

Though infrared light therapy has been gaining popularity recently, it has actually been utilized for thousands of years as a treatment for pain and other ailments, long before the biology was properly understood. According to a scientific study on the biological effects and medical applications of infrared radiation, humans evolved to heal our bodies using the sun. Ancient cultures actually used the sun to assist with healing wounds and as a form of pain relief. 

What these ancient cultures intuitively understood was that infrared light is able to penetrate the skin’s surface and reach the tissues and muscles below without causing harm. When infrared light hits the skin it is absorbed by receptors in the skin cells, kickstarting a chain reaction of cellular processes that ultimately generate energy. 

Nitric Oxide And Blood Circulation

After absorption, infrared light triggers the cells to begin processes that make room for more energy production in the body. Nitric oxide, a molecule involved in the maintenance of healthy arteries, plays a large role in energy generation. When infrared light is absorbed, nitric oxide production increases, which in turn relaxes arteries by preventing blood platelet clumping and helps regulate blood pressure. Nitric oxide makes it possible for blood to circulate more effectively, which allows more oxygen to reach more cells, and hence more energy is generated.

Regeneration Of Tissues

As more oxygen is able to reach the cells, vital nutrients are also carried to more areas of the body. Increased blood flow from extra nitric oxide production carries more nutrients to damaged cells and tissues and increases their ability to repair themselves.
As tissues regenerate and heal there is reduced pain and inflammation. These processes mean red light therapy can help heal other conditions, including arthritis, neck and back pain, tendonitis, sciatica, wounds, and much more. 

Red light therapy is a catalyst that triggers your body’s natural healing processes, repairs cells throughout the body and generates more energy and allows for a happier and more productive life.
