What is Light Therapy?
Light is a lot like food. Similar to how our bodies digest fats, carbs, and proteins, we uniquely metabolize colors of light as well. In fact, specific wavelengths of red and near infrared light have been proven across hundreds of peer-reviewed clinical studies to enhance mitochondrial function at a cellular level.
How Does Light Therapy Work?
Scientists have discovered that certain wavelengths of light have a unique ability to activate cytochrome c oxidase (CCO), the last enzyme in the respiratory electron chain transport of the mitochondria.
During the fourth phase of cellular respiration (oxidative phosphorylation), specific wavelengths of red and near infrared light break the bond between nitric oxide and CCO. This allows oxygen to bind to NADH, restoring the normal pathway for hydrogen ions to create the electrochemical potential that produces ATP (cellular energy). A simple way to think of this process is that photons of light charge your cellular batteries.
Clinically-Proven Benefits of Light Therapy
● Aids in muscle recovery and enhances athletic performance
● Improves skin clarity, tone, and texture
● Diminishes age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles
● Increases fat loss
● Fades scars and stretch marks
● Reduces joint inflammation and speeds wound healing
● Enhances cognitive function and improves mental clarity
The Joovv Difference
Joovv utilizes the LEDs that were specifically designed to maximize durability and therapeutic output. Electrostatic-coated lenses have a mirrored finish, so virtually all of the light produced by the device reaches the desired treatment area. Joovv is also designed to be safe. It uses electrical components manufactured to minimize electromagnetic fields and has undergone rigorous safety and quality testing. The Joovv design – and the entire manufacturing process – has been approved by the FDA.
