A miracle found in a light wave.
A study commissioned by NASA (learn more about it here.) discovered that specific wavelengths of light activate cellular regeneration & anti-aging systems in living tissues and organisms. Today there is no shortage of research with solid evidence to confirm photobiomodulation (PBM) is more than an amazing discovery. Over 50,000 studies, including those by NASA, Stanford, Harvard Medical School, the Mayo clinic just to name a few demonstrate that photobiomodulation is able to help humans to regenerate and optimize cellular functioning. Cells exposed to red light showed over 150% increase in the repair and cellular vitality.
Studies also proved that light energy is able to help relieve pain and inflammation resulting from chronic and/or disease-based conditions, physical trauma, stress and over-training.
“…the activation of numerous intracellular signaling pathways; alter the affinity of transcription factors concerned with cell proliferation, survival, tissue repair and regeneration.” – PubMed.gov
Two wavelengths of light in particular: visible red 660nm (Red) and “invisible” infrared light 850nm (NIR) deliver the best biological response. (read more about these magic wavelengths here).
How exactly does it work?
Similar to how plants use sunlight to convert chemical energy through photosynthesis, the scientifically proven combination of wavelengths enters the body through the skin, dive straight into your cells and feeds them with the energy they need to perform at their maximum capability. Once the light energy is converted to cellular energy, it jumpstarts a whole series of metabolic events. The process is complex:
“The mechanism of action involves photon absorption in the mitochondria (cytochrome c oxidase), and ion channels in cells leading to activation of signaling pathways, up-regulation of transcription factors, and increased expression of protective genes.” – PubMed.gov.
1. Instant increase of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate)
2. The modulation of ROS (reactive oxygen species)
3. The release of NO (Nitric Oxide.
The activation of gene transcription factors leads to increased cellular survival, rejuvenation and healing, provides energy for cellular metabolism and helps to relieve pain and inflammation.We will focus on three major events: the increase of ATP production (supercharging our cells), the modulation of ROS (making our cells stronger) and the release of NO (activating our body’s natural helpers):
Is it safe?
It’s safe, non-invasive and 100% natural. Studies confirm that RLT does not harm the human body in any way, uses no chemicals, has no harmful side effects and is approved for all skin types and skin tones.
