Fagartikler og videoer om red light therapy

Det er foretatt over 7000 publiserte  studier som dokumenterer effekten av paneler og enheter av red light therapy på ulike helsemessige plager. Effekten er dermed vitenskapelig dokumentert gjennom kliniske studier som har gjennomgått vitenskapelig fagfellevurdering. Enten du ønsker å forbedre søvnkvaliteten, lege hudskader, redusere synlige tegn på aldring, bekjempe følelser av depresjon og angst, hjelpe med nevrologiske lidelser, fremme vekttap, akselerere restitusjon etter trening, styrke utholdenheten, motvirke autoimmune tilstander eller håndtere hårtap, så kan  rødt lys terapi være et effektivt verktøy. 

Oversikt over alle  studiene er samlet av en finsk forsker, Vladimir Heiskanen, som har lagt de ut i Google Docs her.

Nedenfor er et utvalg vitenskapelige artikler. 


Vitenskapelige artikler om Red Light Therapy


  • Red light therapy can potentially improve muscle performance, reduce fatigue during exercise and promote faster recovery [R]

  • Red light therapy improves muscle strength, reduces delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and reduces the concentration of biomarkers of muscle damage better than cryotherapy. Based on these findings, the researchers concluded that photobiomodulation can improve muscle recovery after high-intensity exercise and is more effective than cryotherapy [R]

  • Meta-analysis examining time to exhaustion, number of repetitions, isometric peak torque and blood lactate levels. Positive results were found using a wavelength range from 655 to 950 nm [R]

  • Red and near-infrared light therapy can delay the development of muscle fatigue during exercise, decrease post-exercise blood lactate levels, and inhibit the release of inflammatory biomarkers  [R] 

  • Near-infrared light therapy enhances the effects of exercise in obese women undergoing weight loss. Improvement in lipid profile and reduction in adipose tissue suggest increased metabolic activity and altered fat metabolism. [R]


Vitalitet og aldring

  • Red light therapy is effective in increasing testosterone levels [R]

  • Near-infrared light can improve the swimming ability of human sperm [R]

  • Photobiomodulation with infrared light resulted in an increase in sperm concentration and motile forms, a reduction in degenerative forms, and an elevation in serum levels of sex hormones and gonadotropic hormones [R]

  • Near-infrared light therapy shows promise in regulating thyroid hormone production [R]

  • A study suggests near-infrared light therapy may improve thyroid function. Patients experienced a reduced need for medication used to treat an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) and lower levels of a marker for autoimmune thyroid disease [R]

  • Initial studies have shown promise for near-infrared light therapy as a safe and effective treatment for ischemic stroke in humans, especially when initiated within the first 24 hours. Further research is ongoing to solidify these results [R]

  • Red light therapy appears to be associated with enhanced exercise functional capacity and reduced angina prevalence during exercise stress testing in individuals with advanced coronary artery disease [R]

  • Emerging research indicates red and near-infrared light therapy has the potential to benefit the gut microbiome composition [R]

  • Photostimulation with red and near-infrared light interacts with mitochondria, enhancing cellular respiration and ATP synthesis [R]

  • Red and near-infrared light therapy (photobiomodulation) has the potential to slow brain aging by promoting healthy neurons and reducing inflammation [R]

  • Red and near-infrared light therapy may be a helpful tool for reducing inflammation in the body [R]

  • Red light therapy has been shown to accelerate healing in chronic diabetic foot ulcers. This raises the possibility that it could also reduce the total healing time [R]

  • Studies suggest near-infrared light therapy can provide immediate pain relief and improve wound healing in oral mucositis [R]

  • A combination of near-infrared light therapy and exercise may be a helpful way to manage pain, improve grip strength, and get back to daily activities for people with tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) [R]

  • Near-infrared light therapy may help improve symptoms like tingling, numbness, and grip strength in people with carpal tunnel syndrome [R]

  • Near-infrared light therapy may help ease pain, tingling, and other symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, potentially improving hand strength and grip for people with mild or moderate cases [R]

  • Photobiomodulation, a light therapy treatment, may offer a drug-free option for reducing inflammation in conditions like osteoarthritis and joint injuries. Unlike medications like ibuprofen or aspirin, it doesn't come with the same potential side effects [R]

  • Red and near-infrared light therapy (photobiomodulation) has potential to reduce inflammation in the brain, lungs, belly fat, and even help heal wounds [R]

Reduksjon i innflammasjon

Kognitiv og mental funksjon

  • Near-infrared light therapy offered relief for chronic migraines, reducing headache days, medication use, pain intensity, and sleep problems [R]

  • Shining red and near-infrared light on the head (photobiomodulation) may improve cognitive function in people with traumatic brain injuries (TBI), even years later. This therapy also shows promise in reducing symptoms for people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) who have similar brain changes as chronic TBI [R]

  • A study using red and near-infrared light therapy on individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) yielded promising results. Not only did it enhance their cognitive function, but patients also reported a reduction in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) episodes [R]

  • Near-infrared light therapy shows promise as a neuroprotective treatment for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, with potential benefits for other neurodegenerative diseases [R]

  • Two weeks of near-infrared light therapy to the forehead resulted in significant improvement on the Hamilton Depression and Anxiety Scale, with no reported side effects [R]

Ansvarsfraskrivelse: Artiklene er ment for selvstudie, vi står ikke som garantister for kvaliteten i enkeltstudier.  Vi mener allikevel at forskningen som helhet tydelig underbygger troverdigheten i rødlysterapi som behandlingsmetode.

Muskler og skjelett

  • Near-infrared light exposure accelerates bone healing by promoting bone cell growth (osteoblastic proliferation), collagen deposition, and bone formation [R]

  • Light therapy across the red and near-infrared spectrum can aid bone repair, with near-infrared wavelengths demonstrating greater effectiveness [R]

  • Near-infrared light therapy combined with exercise proved more effective than exercise alone for knee osteoarthritis [R]
