Photobiomodulation Uses Light to Foster Cellular Change

Like plants that absorb light for photosynthesis, animal and human cells also respond to the energy from absorbed light. Photobiomodulation is the science of applying light waves to cause a biologic effect.

670nm and 830nm LIGHT ENERGY penetrates tissues and stimulates Cell mitochondria TO WORK MORE EFFICIENTLY. 1

Two factors are key to photobiomodulation:

Most cells are ultimately regulated by mitochondria, which are responsible for:

When mitochondria are functioning at their best, they are producing enough energy for a cell to divide and regenerate and communicate with other cells. Producing the energy required is a multi-step process and the crucial link in the chain is the enzyme cytochrome c oxidase.

Cytochrome c oxidase is the most researched and reported on absorber of near infrared light energy. By providing a consistent, strong dose of far-red, near infrared light (at 670nm or 830nm wavelengths), one can stimulate this enzyme and as many as 30 other photoacceptors in mitochondria.1

In research, many possible benefits of light therapy have been studied and reported, including:
