Joining us today is the founder of Joovv Light, Scott Nelson. Scott brings us all of the latest research on red light and near-infrared light therapy and the benefits that it brings. We dive into the fascinating topic of deuterium and how it’s accumulation may lead to increased risk of cancer and other chronic illness. We also discuss how research is showing benefits ranging from increased collegian production, increased stem cell growth, benefits for exercise, and positive impact on mitochondria and micro biome. Sun light may be the greatest health hack that has been found and similar light therapies are a close second. Listen all the way through to hear how proper light exposure can improve everything from your workouts to your sleep.
