The most common wavelengths and results in research today

The most common wavelengths and results in research today

Following diagrams show
1) the most used wavelengths in research. The darker overlay of the graphic shows that LED’s have a bigger intensity spectrum, which you should take into consideration when reading through the research database. So with 660 nm the spectrum goes from 630-690 nm actually. The spectrum with 850 nm LED’s lies between 808-880 nm.
2) the ratio between positive and negative outcomes in research studies.  It is to be considered, that a selected research was used in the construction of these diagrams. To see the full research database. Please visit the link provided below.

Research Database on red light therapy

Research database on red light therapy

It is really important to us to give you a comprehensive overview of studies done on red light therapy. Here’s our open access database! Disclaimer: We filtered the database for the wavelengths that are mainly used in research. To see the full database, please follow this link: LINK
Our friend Vlad from Finland created it! We are so thankful we can use it.

The data in this research database is based on the work of the great Vladimir Heiskanen. He puts a lot of work in summarizing and analyzing all research on red light therapy. have a look at his PATREON (Link) and share some love, we are already his patreons!

Creating the most powerful biohack of our time: The unknown link of NAD and Photobiomodulation

Research has found that both Photobiomodulation and NAD (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) can have profound biological effects on humans. These effects have to do with our cellular metabolism, which is declining with age. The result is the body shutting down more,...

What is biohacking?

Don’t we all want to be the absolute best version of ourselves and see just how far we can push our bodies? Biohacking might be for you, friend! Biohacking is a broad term that can cover an even bigger range of activities. It’s a different (and very primal) approach...

Bioactive wavelengths and what you should know about them

All light falls along a spectrum of wavelengths. Today we want to focus on red and near-infrared light, what the difference to other wavelengths of light is and why these two wavelengths are used in our Luminousred devices.Red and near-infrared light fall within the...

The Brain – What is it, and why is it super cool?

Our brain is the first of its kind feature. It is an external communication unit, which serves two primary purposes. You will be able to upgrade your device along the way and link multiple devices together!Nowadays, technology is built to last for the warranty period...

Mitochondria – The powerhouse of our cells

Short and sweet: Mitochondria are located inside our cells and take in glucose and oxygen from the food we take in daily. They produce energy, packaged as molecules of so-called ATP (adenosine triphosphate). This process is essential for our health, well-being, and...

Our LEDs – the heart of our Luminousred machine

Today’s article will focus on our LEDs. Where do they originate, what are their benefits, how do they compare to lasers or light bulbs, and what are our unique new features?In 1962 Nick Holonyak Jr. developed the first light-emitting diode (LED). It was a red LED. LED...

Flicker – facts or misconceptions?

Flicker is any change in the brightness of electrical light. The healthy person won’t be able to see it with the bare eye or even, but long-term exposure could cause damages or cause sensitization. There seems to be the widespread misconception out there, that...

EMF – why you should care about it and what you get with Luminousred

All electrical appliances create magnetic and electrical fields. EMF (or electromagnetic field) is a by-product of using any electronic devices.  No matter what you do, you can't stop EMF from being created; you can prevent it from spreading. Now, what is EMF, and how...

The right red-light therapy dosing – A Luminousred guide

Let's face it. There is a lack of knowledge on dosing and a significant discrepancy on different devices and their power intensity. Even though the market isn't enormous (yet), there are numerous devices to choose from when starting your red-light journey, which makes...

Does red-light therapy work, and what are the pros and cons?

Red Light Therapy (RLT), as the name implies, is a therapeutic technique where red light of specific wavelengths is used to treat different kinds of skin ailments but also deep tissues. Red Light Therapy was first tested in the early 1990s when scientists discovered...
