Cellular Mechanism of Action – Mitochondria

All cells use organelles called mitochondria to produce energy to sustain normal cellular functions. The mechanisms of photobiomodulation by far red to near infrared light at the cellular level have been ascribed to the activation of mitochondrial function.

More specifically, cytochrome C oxidase, a critical protein involved in regulation of mitochondrial activity has been shown to be a key photoacceptor of light in the far red to near infrared spectral range.

Photobiomodulation (PBM) treatment results in improved energy generation and restoration of metabolic function.
