Incandescent sunlight has been nourishing life here on Earth for millions of years. From growing the food we eat, to nourishing and healing the body, incandescent sunlight is a vital necessity to wellbeing. But too much sunlight can be a bad thing – the reason being that sunlight produces several wavelengths of light, including the infamous UV ray – which is responsible for the DNA-denaturing effect that can ultimately lead to skin carcinomas.
Fortunately, with the invention of the incandescent light bulb, it became possible to recreate natural sunlight indoors. But the question remains, which range of incandescent light wavelength is most beneficial? And is it possible to get the good without the bad? The answer is yes – and is precisely why we love SaunaSpace home infrared sauna.
Using tungsten lamp-powered incandescent light bulbs (with near-zero EMF), the SaunaSpace home sauna kit produces a natural, thermal light spectrum of red, NIR and thermal infrared (all minus the UV). And unlike other home sauna kits – namely LED kits that only emit monochromatic light in narrow wavelength bands – the home infrared sauna by SaunaSpace produces a full spectrum light reaching into the Near Infrared light range.
Here it is important worth noting the difference between Near Infrared and Far Infrared. While Far Infrared light provides therapeutic benefits, Near Infrared has consistently shown to penetrate tissue 2 to 3 times than Far Infrared. Furthermore, Near Infrared light raises core body temperature from within, as opposed to Far Infrared, which raises core body temperature by increasing the ambient temperature (an outside-in process that results in a hotter light).
The actual therapeutic benefit of being exposed to these light waves is based on Photobiomodulation (PBM) – which broadly speaking – is the study of the effects of light wavelengths on living organisms. PBM therapy (also called low level light therapy and red light therapy) is the process of exposing cells to a wavelength range (specifically 600-1,000 nanometers), which encompasses both red light (600-700 nm) and near infrared (700-1,500 nm). This wavelength range is known as the Mitochondrial Stimulation Band (also called the healing band), as it enables living tissue to absorb light photons, by means of stimulating a very powerful mitochondrial light receptor enzyme: Cytochrome-C oxidase.
PBM low-level light therapy has been shown to provide anti-aging benefits, improve memory and cognitive abilities, accelerate cellular regeneration/healing, and enhance athletic performance.
The importance of cellular mitochondria cannot be overstated. By stimulating the healing band, cells respond with increases in both ATP production and Reactive Oxygen species, while stimulating the release of cellular Nitrous Oxide.
All of this culminates into what amounts to a full-body detoxification – all without raising the temperature of the air (traditional sauna therapy), ingesting substances or partaking in high-impact activity.
