Light is essential for health. We know our body requires nutrients from food, but our body also receives
nutrition from light. In fact, how our body digests and stores nutrients from food is also controlled by light.
Light is essential for our overall bodily functions. For example, we know exposing your body to sunlight will
cause your body to synthesize Vitamin D. Depending on the wavelength of light our body is exposed to, this
process occurs in various ways throughout our body.
NASA originally began experimenting with red light therapy on plant growth in space and then to help heal
wounds in astronauts. The NASA scientists found that the light from red light-emitting diodes (LEDs) at a
wavelength of about 650nm helped promote growth and photosynthesis of plant cells. This resulted in further
investigations of other potential uses for red light therapy on the human body.
At the cellular level, visible red and non-visible near infrared light (NIR) energy are absorbed by the
mitochondria in the cell which perform the function of producing cellular energy called “ATP” (Adenosine
The human body needs to make ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) cellular energy to function and survive. This
occurs organically when our bodies are exposed to natural sunlight.
Red and near infrared wavelengths of natural light stimulate the mitochondria in our cells.
The mitochondria turn the light into usable energy for our bodies through the process of photobiomodulation.
This effect helps strengthen the mitochondria and improve performance of cells.
