Studies prove the effect of low level laser therapy on athletes:

“Laser diodes luminous therapy is useful to reduce muscle damage, pain, and atrophy, but also to increase muscle mass, recovery and athletic performance in rehabilitation programs and sports medicine”.

We know for a long time that sunlight improves our immunity, mood and hormones, and now we know that our body also reacts positively to other parts of the light spectrum. Just look at our “gets fitter” page!

Even the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has conducted research that shows the energy in cells and therefore provides regeneration power to repair broken tissues when exposed to red light. But also US Olympic athletes use low level laser to perform better.

Photobiomodulation or low level laser therapy (LLLT) is a type of treatment that stimulates activity in the body by irradiation with laser light energy to photons. It has proven to be an important phenomenon in clinical therapy with a positive influence on oxygen, recovery etc. Athletes who are building up for a performance or goal benefit enormously from this. According to Dr. Franke, Medical advisor of Laeq Health, the red light of about 650 nm is ideal if it is administered daily for about 30 minutes via a small clamp on the nose because the area there is extremely suitable to reach the blood.

For example, in 2007, four bodies were administered:

In 2007, four bodybuilders were subjected to lasers under their skin for approximately 20 minutes in each session, for a period of three weeks. After this period it was noted that deadlifts, bench presses and squats endurance were improved and weights were increased by 10kg.

A 2016 study of identical twins showed that the individual undergoing light therapy treatment over a 12-week period showed 80% better leg pads and reduced muscle weakness compared to the sibling, who had a placebo treatment.

Laeq Health, good for everyone, but certainly also for athletes!
