This podcast is sponsored by Joovv– a company pioneering at-home use of red light therapy. Also called photobiomodulation, this revolutionary therapy uses specific wavelengths of red light to create a biochemical effect in our cells that serves to increase mitochondrial function. This improves ATP (adenosine (ah-den-o-zine) triphosphate) production in the body. ATP is the source of energy for every cell in the body. Without it, we don’t function at all. Without enough of it, we don’t function well. For this reason, some of the documented benefits of red light therapy include me of the documented benefits of light therapy include: improved skin health and complexion, increased collagen production, muscle recovery, reduced joint pain and inflammation, reduction of wrinkles, and faster healing. There is also some evidence it can benefit the thyroid, which is why I use it daily. You can learn more and get a free gift with any purchase at joovv.com/wellnessmama with the code wellnessmama.
