It is theorized that red light creates an effect in cells that boosts the mitochondria in the cells, increasing energy production and regeneration. This provides two primary effects:
More ATP Energy: Light therapy can help reduce oxidative stress and increase adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production.
Enhanced Cell Signaling: Certain light wavelengths help create an improved oxidative environment in your cells, which can result in the activation of intracellular signaling pathways, increased enzyme activation, protein synthesis, and enhanced cell progression.
