Mitochondria have specific sensitivities to long light wavelengths. Longer wavelengths from red to "invisible" near infrared (NIR) spanning 650 to 900nm improve mitochondrial performance.
More cellular energy (ATP)
Lower inflammation (ROS)
Improved blood flow (Nitric Oxide)
Mitochondria are organelles that play a critical role in energy production and metabolism, as well as other cellular functions, such as calcium homeostasis, apoptosis and reactive oxygen species (ROS) signaling.
- Mitochondrial dysfunction has been implicated in the pathogenesis of numerous age-related diseases, including neurodegenerative disorders, metabolic syndrome, cancer and cardiovascular disease.
- Mitochondrial decline with age is characterized by a decrease in both the number and function of mitochondria, resulting in reduced ATP production and increased ROS generation, which can lead to oxidative stress and damage to cellular components.
The thing about mitochondrial degradation is that it affects all of the body – that’s what aging is, everything is affected.
