Biohacking with Chroma: Using Light to Boost Your Performance and Recovery

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.
