Health Benefits of Red and Near Infrared Light Therapy
Now you know what red light therapy does, and you also understand how to use a device for daily sessions. Now, let’s take a look at the specific health benefits of the therapy so you can start using it to upgrade your health!
Melatonin and Sleep
It’s no secret that being exposed to artificial light from technology is unhealthy and can disrupt your circadian rhythm, which in turn affects your sleep quality. However, this therapy actually does the exact opposite, and helps to protect your circadian rhythm and your body's “internal clock”. It can also increase the natural production of melatonin, which is the body's natural way of preparing for a good night's sleep. We recommend using your device 30 minutes before bed to trigger your circadian rhythm and to start the natural release of melatonin.
Skin, Collagen, and Anti-Aging
It helps to improve skin complexion, decrease inflammation and pain, fade stretch marks and scars, repair sun damage, reduce wrinkles, quicken the skin’s healing process and so much more. This is because it stimulates the production of collagen, which gives your skin better elasticity and holds the connective tissue together which tightens the skin. This process also rejuvenates the skin and provides anti-aging effects.

Training and Muscle Recovery
Who would have thought this therapy also helps with muscle growth and recovery? Even as a natural therapy, some of the world's elite trainers even think it may provide an unfair competitive advantage! It works by helping the body produce more cellular energy and reduce oxidative stress, which helps the repair and recovery of tired and damaged muscle tissues.

Inflammation and Joint Pain
The use of this therapy helps to reduce inflammation and joint pain simply by reducing oxidative stress and stimulating cellular energy production (adenosine triphosphate or ATP). There have been hundreds of well documented studies over the years to show the positive results of red light therapy for Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and other types of inflammation and joint pain.
