Light Is an Essential Nutrient

On this episode of Living Beyond 120, Mark and Dr. Gladden invite Scott Nelson, co-founder for Joovv, to discuss the wide range of benefits from light therapy.


They focus on red light and near-infrared light, which have the ability to help stimulate the mitochondria in our cells to produce more ATP energy. This helps promote healthier skin, optimized sleep, faster muscle recovery, stronger immune function, reduced inflammation, better hormone balance and more.


They explore the mechanisms by which light therapy affects people on a cellular level, considering the scientifically proven benefits and the potential ones. Light is not just a therapy, but an essential nutrient for our biology, and they consider how one can supplement this in our lives.
