Red light is a naturally occurring light that is relatively low in energy on the electromagnetic spectrum. This means that, compared to higher frequency waves like UV rays, red light carries energy that is less intense and is therefore less likely to damage cells. In fact, the frequency of red light is in a sweet spot: not so great as to excite molecules to the point of mutation and uncontrolled replication, but not too low as to be ineffective in supplying light energy to growing cells.
Growing bones and muscles need vitamin D and potential energy, which you can obtain from the sun. The problem with simply exposing yourself to sunlight, however, is that the whole range of the electromagnetic spectrum is present. This means high-energy UV, gamma, and X-rays are present in your attempts to soak up the sun, possibly causing long-term damage in the process. Red light therapy caters to your anabolic needs while keeping the more dangerous wavelengths away from you.
With our non-thermal, red light therapy, your cells will receive the energy needed to facilitate growth and repair. Light energy will impact the intermediate chemical reactions that comprise cellular respiration to provide you a greater reserve of cellular energy. The stimulation will in time expand the density of mitochondria in your cells, which is an essential prerequisite to successful cell division. For a faster recovery, you will need the energy reservoir to generate new cells in place of damaged tissue. Building up an army of immune cells, fibroblasts, keratinocytes and more depends on the potential energy present. Red light sets you up for success when your body is ready to direct cell division for the purpose of tissue repair. Red light will continue to supply vital energy in the final stages of repair, when cells must migrate, organize, and adhere amongst themselves.
