Health Benefits Of Infrared

Health benefits of near and far infrared light.

Both near and far infrared provide heat which in itself has many health benefits, however in this article the two types of heat source are compared.

The term ‘near infrared light’ refers to electromagnetic radiation with a wave-length between 0.75–1.4 µm. This accounts for 37% of the suns natural output of light perhaps explaining why the human body has evolved in such a way that this light source can have such a profound effect upon us. With more and more research beginning to be conducted in this area it is becoming clear that the benefits of such infrared technology are only just beginning to be realized. NASA began researching this particular wavelength only 40 years ago and found the regeneration of cells stimulated by this heat source was unparalleled by conventional heating methods.
