Our Natural Light Challenge

The average American spends 93% of their time indoors, at work and at home, often surrounded by artificial lighting like TVs, phones, tablets, and computers.[1] These devices all expose us to artificial blue light which gives your body the misleading message that it’s always time to be wide awake. The result: your brain makes less melatonin all day, leading to sleepless nights and groggy days.[2,3]

This modern-day lifestyle—filled with loads of artificial light—is something our ancestors wouldn’t recognize. Despite the amazing technology we have access to, our cellular energy production and circadian rhythm are still designed around regular sunlight. All of this leads to a natural light deficiency, which is a bigger health risk than most realize—and can lead to insomnia, fatigue, headaches, and mental health problems.[4]

Red Light Therapy Offers Natural Concentrated Light

For those who can’t always get outside, red light therapy is a safe, effective way to get more therapeutic natural light.

A medical-grade red light therapy device delivers concentrated wavelengths of healthy natural light to your skin and cells, helping them make more ATP energy and function more effectively. This results in a wide range of clinically-proven health benefits across hundreds of peer-reviewed studies.

Our red light therapy is noninvasive, there are no UV rays, drugs, or chemicals, and there are no common side effects. All you have to do is use the devices for 10 minutes to charge your cells with a medical-grade dose of healthy, natural light.

How Red Light Therapy Helps

NASA started studying RLT in the early 1990s. After finding that red light therapy activated natural plant growth in space, they started researching health applications for people. NASA’s findings demonstrated health benefits from specific wavelengths of red light delivered through light emitting diodes (LEDs).

This type of light—red in the mid-600 nm range and near infrared in the mid-800’s—has been clinically-proven in a large number of studies.[5,6] It’s safe, effective, and the same exact wavelengths that are delivered through SCC’s red light therapy panels.

Over the last 3 decades, there’s been extensive clinical research on the various health applications of red light therapy. The results are extremely encouraging for people seeking natural, non-invasive treatments for a wide range of health concerns.

Clinically-Proven Health Benefits of Red Light Therapy

10 of the most studied and well-documented health benefits of light therapy include:

  • Stimulated melatonin for healthier sleep [2,3]
  • Improved skin tone and complexion [7,8]

  • Natural production of collagen and elastin [7,8]
  • Improved appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and stretch marks [7,8]

  • Reduced acne, rosacea, and eczema [7,8]
  • Enhanced muscle recovery and physical performance [9]

  • Reduced joint pain and inflammation [10,11,12]
  • Increased circulation [13]

  • Faster healing of wounds and injuries [13]
