Using light for Weight Loss

How do various wavelengths of the sun help you lose weight?

Speed up your metabolism and so help increase fat burning for weight loss


Light is a form of energy that behaves like a wave and also as a stream of particles called photons. The development of monochromatic light sources with single or narrow spectra of wavelengths paved the way for studies, which continue to show that appropriate doses and wavelengths of light are therapeutically beneficial in tissue repair and pain control. Evidence indicates that cells absorb photons and transform their energy into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the form of energy that cells utilize. The resulting ATP is then used to power metabolic processes; synthesize DNA, RNA, proteins, enzymes, and other products needed to repair or regenerate cell components; foster mitosis or cell proliferation; and restore homeostasis.

For a rough ballpark estimate: if your home bulb uses 40 watts, that's 40 Joules in a second. A photon of visible light has a wavelength of around 500 nanometres; since the energy of a photon is given by E = hc/l, where h is Planck's constant, c is the speed of light, and l is the wavelength, each photon has... ::: calculates ::: about 4 x 10-19 Joules. So to emit 40 Joules worth of light in a second, the bulb would have to emit about 1020 photons in a second.

This is a very rough calculation, of course. To refine it, you'd have to take the efficiency of the bulb into account (not all 40 watts go into light energy), and look at the spectrum of the bulb to figure out exactly what the average photon energy is. I suspect that these factors might cause the final answer to differ by a factor of 10 or so, but not much more than that.

Our CE approved lights can emit up to 500 watts

For over 30 years now, NASA has been using Light Therapy to help astronauts maintain optimum health and fitness in deep space. Due to the long flights and extreme conditions, metabolic processes slow down dramatically and the body starts to weaken. What’s more, astronauts are at a high risk for injuring themselves and a slow metabolism make healing much more difficult. Light Therapy addresses these problems because it speeds up the metabolism which keeps the body working better, hastens wound healing, and alleviates pain. The cutting edge of slimming science NASA studies show that cells which have been exposed to LED light therapy have a 150% increase in cellular metabolism suggesting enhanced cellular repair and rejuvenation.

The wavelengths from 600 to 900 nm pass through blood and water in tissue more easily than other wavelengths. About 35% of the energy in this range is absorbed by a specific "proton pump" (cytochrome c oxidase, CCO, "complex IV") in mitochondria. The light at 4 specific wavelengths "kick-start" the CCO pump into producing more cellular energy, ATP. The CCO pump is very similar in all animals because the key proteins were inherited from light-assisted bacteria that were part of the first mitochondria.

So it is like increasing the tickover of your car when it is stationary – you will use more petrol (gas) therefore burn more energy and help lose weight.

Some scientific proof

Our lights help as they have the appropriate wavelengths to help weight loss

Fat and 940 nm (and 633)

FAT and 940 nm

IR light 940 nm, which creates a chemical signal in the fat cells, breaking down the stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol and releasing them though channels in the cell membranes. The fatty acids and glycerol are then transported around the body to the tissues that will use them during metabolism to create energy. This process of fatty acid release is a natural response of the body when the body needs to used stored energy reserves, thus the –magic -lamp is not creating any unnatural reaction in the body nor does it affect or damage any surrounding structures such as skin, blood vessels and peripheral nerves. A period of exercise post treatment will ensure the complete metabolism and thus elimination from the body of the freed fatty acids.

Good article and scientific proof


Scientific Proof in Support Experimental results of Exercise and IR red light on weight loss, cellulite and skin health

Lower body fat and greater muscle mass.

A study was performed on women using stationery bicycles for exercise over a 4-week period. The women who were exposed to Light Therapy with NIR 7.and LED during their workouts lost an average of 444% more centimeters compared to the women who were not exposed.(3)

The circumference of waist, hip and thighs reduced on average by 8 centimetres. The 20 women who exercised without being exposed to infrared light, only lost 1.8 centimetres and no weight at all.

The metabolism is stimulated Regular training and healthy food are mandatory for losing weight. Nevertheless, wIRA lamps can help reduce the fat at the typical problem zones.

Less visible cellulite

Cellulite is created by trapped fat and toxins, and then held in place by flabby skin. In a study by Alster and Tanzi, it was proven that Light Therapy with NIR and LED can rebuild connective tissue, increase skin elasticity, and flush out fat and toxins to diminish noticeable cellulite.(4) 4 Alster T.S., Tanzi E.L., Cosmetic Laser Therapy
