Benefits of Red Light Therapy
Red light therapy has several potential benefits. In fact, scientists have found that red light therapy may have some benefits that have been limited photosynthetic organisms and specialized photoresponsive cells.
Due to the fact that light interacts with all the cells of our body, RLT has profound influence on many systems of the body. Let’s take a look at them.
Supports Collagen Production
Collagen is the primary structural protein in the body. It is found in skin, tendons, bones, ligaments, and teeth. It is built up of tightly bound amino acids that help to hold your body together. Collagen is important for your skin because it ensures its elasticity and reduces wrinkles. Collagen, however, is also important for a healthy gut, mood, hair, nails, ligaments, and bones.
Reduces Inflammation and Pain
Red light therapy is also incredibly beneficial for pain and inflammation. According to a systemic review and meta-analysis evaluating low-level laser therapy for musculoskeletal disorders in adults, RLT may reduce pain when used regularly and a recommended dose.
Improves Skin Conditions
Stimulates Mitochondrial Health
The mitochondria are the powerhouse of your cells. They are small organelles that are the center of cellular energy in your body. Researchers have found that one of the main benefits of red light therapy is that it helps to stimulate mitochondrial health and help your mitochondria to create more energy.
Improves Circadian Rhythm & Sleep Quality
Supports Hair Growth
If you are looking to grow beautiful hair or simply want to grow more or better quality hair, red light therapy may be an option. About 50 percent of man over 40 and 75 percent of women over 65 suffer from Androgenetic Alopecia, a common form of hair loss. Research has found that light therapy may benefit this population.
Promotes Wound Healing & Tissue Repair
One of the most commonly known and used benefits of red light therapy is wound healing. It has been well-researched and has been used in professional settings in order to improve wound healing and tissue repair.
