There are many causes for hair loss. Genetics, stress, hormonal imbalances, poor nutrition and side-effects from medical treatments are all contributory factors. Traditional means of addressing this are expensive invasive surgeries, medication with nasty side effects, shampoo’s that yield limited benefits. Red light therapy offers a viable solution with no side effects. It is without doubt one of the most cost effective measures that you can undertake to reverse hair loss.
Red light therapy increases capillary formation in the scalp. This increases the blood flow and delivery of oxygenated, nutrient rich blood to the scalp and hair follicles. RLT also stimulates ATP synthesis within the hair follicles, increasing their metabolism and replication.
We all know there are no magic pills when it comes to weight loss. Diet, exercise and lower stress are all very important factors. Red light therapy can however be a simple and effect adjunct to these. So how does this occur?
Increased Cellular Metabolism
The main effect of Red Light is that it stimulates cellular energy. The more energy our cells produce, the more efficiently they function. The more efficiently they function, the more efficiently you function as a human. Increased metabolism, improved ability to exercise and function daily and improved function of your organs all serve to stimulate excess fat loss.
Fat Cell Reduction
Red Light has been shown to create tiny holes or pores in the fat cells in your body which allows fatty acids or lipids to be released. Even a few minutes exposure causes significant amounts of lipids to be released.
Enhanced Muscle Mass
We all know that weight training and increased muscle mass results in significant weight loss. Red Light has been shown in numerous research studies to increase muscle mass which leads to increased calorie turnover and improved body composition.
Sleep disorders and insomnia are no joke. Sleep is fundamental to our bodies function and repair processes. Without adequate sleep almost every bodily function is impacted. Unfortunately, the treatments for sleep disorder’s are limited. These are usually medication which over time can have detrimental effects on the body.
Blue light which is given off by screens, devices and standard lights are stimulatory and can negatively affect sleep by stimulating the body and telling the brain its time to be awake. Red light on the other hand has a relaxing effect. The use of red light in the evening can help relax your body and help it transition into a natural sleep cycle.
