If you’ve fasted before, you’ll know that it comes with an immense amount of benefits.
From improved focus to better mood, and improved sleep quality to boosting your immune function.
And while there are many variations of fasting, there are certain ways that you can amplify the benefits you get from your fasting period.
In today’s article you’ll learn 5 reasons why red light therapy is the perfect tool to use while you are fasting.
You may have heard that the primary way red light therapy works is by increasing energy (ATP) production within your cells.
What’s less commonly known is that a byproduct of this energy production process is endogenous (made within) water!
Whether you are doing a "dry fast" or a "water fast", having extra hydration within your cells will lead to better results.
As red and infrared light hits your tissues it stimulates your blood vessels to dilate, leading to increased blood flow.
This is incredibly important if you are fasting for detox purposes, because the increased circulation helps to clear out any toxins even quicker.
Studies have shown that red light therapy is able to speed up fat loss in targeted areas.
Researchers believe that this happens because of the increased circulation (as mentioned in point 2), which allows fatty acids to be cleared out quicker.
By combining fasting with red light therapy you can turn your body into a fat-burning machine.
One of the concerns, especially for men, about extended fasting is that you will breakdown some hard earned muscle mass.
A great way to prevent this is to ensure that your anabolic hormone, testosterone, is optimised during this time.
Red light therapy has been proven to boost testosterone when used correctly, which you can learn more about in this video.
Some people feel fantastic throughout their fasting period, while others have ups and downs.
When you're in one of these downs, it can be very tempting to end your fast early.
Red light therapy is the perfect 'pick-me-up' to use in this time, and push you to achieve your fasting goal.
Before starting with any fasting program it is important to get clearance from a medical professional, especially if you have any underlying conditions.
Once you know that this is a health tool you can use, implementing red light therapy during your fasting periods is a great way to increase the results you get.
