Photobiomodulation is the scientific term for light hacking. PBM for short, photobiomodulation extends beyond avoid blue light after dark.
Volumes of scientific literature show that red and infrared light therapy improve cellular health, leading to a long list of health benefits – including wound healing, tissue repair, muscle recovery, skin clarification and more.
I caught up with Scott Nelson and Justin Strahan of Joovv at the Bulletproof Conference to explore the science behind these benefits of red and near infrared light therapy, along with everything else we need to know about red light and PBM.
In this episode of the OPP, we cover:
- Science of how light improves cellular function
- Specific wavelengths to use (and to avoid)
- The importance of intensity and irradiation when choosing a red light device
- Why saunas and red light are not the same thing
- And much more…
If you’re interested in, or currently using red lights, this is must listen episode of the OPP.
