Health Benefits of Red Light Therapy
Who would have thought that flipping the switch of a red light would help you cure just about anything and everything? Quick… what’s your first health problem that comes to mind?
Acne ― scarring your beautiful skin
Sore Muscles ― stopping you from exercising
Diabetic ― fed up of foot ulcers
We have a couple more… no, dozens more to add to the list, some that will make you wonder, “Is it really possible?”
Well, yeah! Or we wouldn’t be talking about it. On a serious note, red light therapy (RLT) changes your body’s function on a cellular level, which is what aids in treating your health problems. At the center of it is the mitochondria, powerhouse of cells, which helps carry energy to different body parts. The better the mitochondria functions, the more energy is carried throughout the body, which repairs damage and rejuvenates cells.
Following is a list of red light therapy benefits that will blow your mind:
Helps Heal Wounds

Treating Acne and Scarring
Give us a subtle nod if you ever dreamed about getting Wolverine-esque healing powers? It’s alright, no one will know. According to a study published in the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, red light therapy decreases bacterial cultures that induce wound healing. In fact, it speeds up the process by repairing tissues and then restores the body’s normal function.

This also helps improve your endurance level.
Helps With Skin Issues

It keeps the skin from becoming dry and developing those bumpy red patches.
