RED LIGHT THERAPY FOR MUSCLE RECOVERY AND PERFORMANCE
- Increased muscle growth from exercise
- Increased fat loss from exercise
- Reduced pain and inflammation, and more.
Red Light Therapy is becoming highly recognized in the fitness industry, especially among professional athletes. It has been shown in clinical trials that it accelerates and enhances physical performance by stimulating the body’s natural healing process.
Red Light Therapy is comprised of red and near infrared wavelengths. It works by penetrating the mitochondria to create more ATP and diminish oxidative stress in the body. ATP provides the fuel that each cell requires to carry out all its cellular functions. This process stimulates cellular regeneration and healing capabilities that allows athletes to experience better endurance, improved muscle strength and stamina, speed, and the prevention of fatigue.
The red and near-infrared wavelengths are also beneficial in muscle repair which has shown to accelerate the recovery process following a workout or injury. Research also shows that red light therapy may help prevent the loss of muscle that occurs with aging.
RED LIGHT FOR PRE AND POST WORKOUT
Red light penetrates deep into muscles and joints, increasing circulation, nutrient delivery, oxygenation as well as removal of toxins, and cellular repair. Athletes have experienced less muscle soreness, better muscle tone and faster post-workout recovery when using light therapy.
RED LIGHT FOR PAIN
Poor circulation and the lack of oxygen and ATP in blood vessels can cause pain and inflammation. Red light will stimulate the release of nitric oxide, causing blood vessels to increase in size and allowing more blood flow while allowing more oxygen to be delivered to the cells. This increase in oxygen and nutrients, increases ATP production stimulating pain relieving effects and decreased inflammation. This can result in long-lasting healthy muscle and tissue repair in athletes.
RED LIGHT FOR RECOVERY
Red Light Therapy strengthens the body’s ability to recover and even speed up recovery time. With more production of ATP, cells can regenerate better and have the ability to withstand excessive athletic conditions. That means athletes can experience less downtime, reduced pain, more flexibility, and enhanced improvements.
Red Light Therapy is an imperative treatment for all athletes to heal and enhance their overall physical performance.
