Biohacking is a term that has gained popularity in recent years, referring to the process of making changes to your lifestyle to optimize physical, and mental health. One biohack that has gained significant attention is the use of light therapy. At Chroma, we believe that harnessing the power of light can be a high impact game-changer for anyone looking to improve their overall health and well-being. In particular, our high-power 850nm NIR light the Ironforge can provide significant benefits to those looking to enhance their performance and speed up recovery.

Research has shown that 850nm NIR light can penetrate deep into the body's tissues, stimulating the mitochondria in cells to produce more ATP, the energy of our cells. This increased ATP production can lead to improved athletic performance, faster recovery times, and reduced inflammation. Additionally, 850nm NIR light has been shown to promote the release of nitric oxide, a molecule that plays a crucial role in blood flow and can lead to improved cardiovascular health.

One of the most significant benefits of using 850nm NIR light is its ability to reduce inflammation. Inflammation is a natural response to injury, but when it becomes chronic, it can lead to a range of health problems, including autoimmune diseases, cancer, and heart disease. Studies have shown that exposure to 850nm NIR light can significantly reduce inflammation levels, making it an effective tool for anyone looking to improve their overall health.

Using Chroma's Ironforge, our high-power 850nm NIR light therapy device, can be a game-changer for anyone looking to take their biohacking to the next level. By incorporating daily light therapy sessions into your routine, you can speed up recovery times, enhance athletic performance, and reduce inflammation levels. Additionally, the Ironforge is easy to use, portable, and can be used in the comfort of your own home.

Incorporating light therapy into your biohacking routine can be a powerful tool for improving your overall health and well-being. Whether you're an athlete looking to enhance your performance or someone looking to reduce inflammation and speed up recovery times, Chroma's Ironforge can help you achieve your goals. With thousands of scientific studies to back up our claims, we're confident that our high-power 850nm NIR light therapy device can be a game-changer for anyone looking to take their biohacking to the next level.

Light is an essential factor for our circadian rhythms, and the right kind of light exposure at the right times can have a dramatic impact on our health and well-being. In recent years, red light therapy has gained popularity for its potential benefits, such as improved skin health, increased collagen production, and reduced inflammation. However, the benefits of near-infrared light therapy are less well-known, but have shown promising results in clinical trials.

Near-infrared light (NIR) therapy involves the use of wavelengths that are longer than those in the visible light spectrum, ranging from 700 to 1200 nanometers. The Chroma Sky Portal offers a unique combination of melanopic blue light and NIR light, which has been shown to enhance the effects of both types of light. The melanopic blue light, which is primarily responsible for regulating our circadian rhythms, can help improve sleep and overall health, while the NIR light can penetrate deeper into the body and stimulate cellular repair.

One of the most promising benefits of near infrared light therapy is its ability to reduce inflammation. Studies have shown that NIR light can improve the function of mitochondria, commonly known as the "powerhouses of our cells", and reduce oxidative stress, a key factor in inflammation. In addition, NIR light therapy has been shown to increase blood flow, which can help with the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to tissues, further aiding in the healing process.

Does Near Infrared Light Protect the Brain?

Short answer - YES, it's very likely that NIR light exposure may help prevent cognitive decline. Another potential benefit of NIR light therapy is its ability to improve brain function. A study conducted on mice showed that exposure to NIR light improved cognitive function and reduced the buildup of beta-amyloid plaques, a hallmark of Alzheimer's disease. While more research is needed to fully understand the effects of NIR light therapy on the brain, these findings are promising.
