Pre & Post Workout LLLT and BBS with Eyekandi Life Tech

Bio Hack your Workout with Eyekandi

At our Eyekandi Life Tech headquarters in Chiang Mai Thailand, we take bio-hacking seriously. If there’s a way to increase results we will generally look into it. When theres a way to increase our performance in terms of our BBS workout? Well now, we’re pretty serious.

With the development and launch of our new app, BBS (Body By Science App available for iOS iPhone/iPad), as well as the research we are doing with LLLT (Low Level Light Therapy), Photo-bio-modulation, and NIR (Near Infrared), we have seen incredible results with ourselves. We have recently come across research which has been going on in the background for a number of years by Chiropractors and Sports Science enthusiasts. This backs our own studies and confirms what we have found:

“Combining pre and post workout LLLT can ‘ease muscle fatigue’ and reduce inflammation”

LLLT exposure either before or after fatigue reduced the post-fatigue concentrations of serum lactate and creatine kinase. The results were more pronounced when the LLLT was applied after exercise.

Based on this research, it would appear that low level laser therapy can be a valuable addition to any chiropractor’s treatment regimen to reduce muscle fatigue for those patients who regularly exercise or participate in sports.

In addition to combining LLLT with pre and post workouts, research has also shown that LLLT helps to treat some injuries to the muscles.

Knee injuries and conditions treated by LLLT include tendonitis, bursitis, meniscus tears, runners knee/chondromalacia patella, knee joint effusion, iliotibial band syndrome, osgood schlatters disease, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Very low power is used with the application of LLLT and no heating of or damage to the tissue occurs. It also increases cell metabolism.

LLLT emit light in the red and infrared range. Red and infrared light infiltrate the human tissue. This is where the energy from the light is then absorbed and turned into biochemical energy. By increasing cellular energy in the treated area, LLLT is therefore speeding up the healing process and reducing inflammation and pain.

By using LLLT, Photo-bio-modulation or NIR light technology, you are reducing the impact of muscle fatigue, pain and inflammation. Therefore using LLLT before and after your BBS workout, you will have increased stamina and less chance of injury in order to receive good results.

For the geeks: here is some science

Photons, which are particles of electromagnetic energy, are emitted from the low power light. These photons enter the tissues and are absorbed in the mitochondria, which are tiny structures within the substance of each individual cell. The energy is converted to chemical energy within the cell. The permeable state of the cell membrane changes which in turn produces various physiological effects. These physiological changes affect a variety of cell types including macrophages, fibroblasts, endothelial cells and mast cells.

Absorption of light by plants is the driving force for much of the life on earth, so why not humans too?!

Give it a try and let us know how it goes!

1903: The Nobel Prize for Light Radiation

A Nobel Prize Winner for the use of Light Radiation

In 1903, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was granted to Mr Niels Ryberg Finsen to acknowledge his contribution to the treatment of diseases, especially lupus vulgaris also known as tuberculosis luposa, with the use of concentrated light radiation.

Tuberculosis luposa

Tuberculosis luposa are painful skin lesions with a nodular appearance. These are found most often on the face: around the nose, eyelids, lips, cheeks, ears and neck. It is the most common Mycobacterium tuberculosis skin infection. The lesions may ultimately develop into disfiguring skin ulcers if left untreated.

Niemann–Pick disease

Mr Finsen suffered from Niemann–Pick disease. This inspired him to sunbathe and investigate the effects of light on living things.  Nieman-Pick disease is a subgroup of lipid storage disorders called sphingolipidoses. This is where harmful quantities of fatty substances, or lipids, accumulate in the spleen, liver, lungs, bone marrow, and brain.

As a result, Finsen is best known for his theory of phototherapy. According to this theory, certain wavelengths of light can have beneficial medical effects.

His most notable writings were Finsen Om Lysets Indvirkninger paa Huden (“On the effects of light on the skin”), published in 1893., and Om Anvendelse i Medicinen af koncentrerede kemiske Lysstraaler(“The use of concentrated chemical light rays in medicine”), published in 1896.

The Eykandi crew are currently developing new and innovative ways to harness the goodness from Light radiation, Photo-Bio-Modulation and Near-infrared treatments.

Red Light Therapy Health Benefits and How to Get It

Still wondering about the Red Light Therapy phenomenon?

KEEP READING…

As seen on the Bulletproof Blog, Red light therapy, also known as photo-bio-modulation (PBM), has been around for around 40 years – ever since the invention of lasers.

“Red light therapy uses certain wavelengths of light to restore, repair, and protect tissue that is either injured, degenerating, or at risk of dying. While varying wavelengths affect the body differently, as far as healing with red light is concerned, the most effective wavelengths range from 630-670 and 810-880.”

But this is how it really works…

The PBM wavelengths affect bodily cells on a biochemical level by increasing mitochondrial function. This is the ability to produce energy in the cells. The more that the cells can produce energy, the better the body can function. When red light wavelengths are used on the skin’s surface, they penetrate 8-10 millimetres deep into the skin. So depending upon where the red light is used (head or knee, for instance), all of the surrounding skin layers, blood vessels, lymph pathways, nerves, and even hair follicles are affected.

The Benefits of Red Light Therapy (PBM)

Red light therapy works from the inside-out to enhance and increase mitochondrial function in cells. Therefore this, leads to several skin benefits. Red light reduces skin inflammation, smooths skin tone, repairs sun damage, fades scars and stretch marks, and even builds collagen in the skin which in turn reduces wrinkles. It also heals wounds and can prevent recurring cold sores or herpes simplex (some of us were burdened). PBM works on the lymphatic system to improve your body’s detoxification abilities by increasing blood flow. It may even stimulate hair growth in your hair follicles (check it out ladies!).

Photo – Bio – Modulation: Low Level Light Therapy

Low Level Light Therapy

Lasers or as we sometime call it low laser light therapy (LLLT) are instrumental in the stem cell field. Pablo Rosada, of the Institute of Regenerative Medicine in the USA has been using them for a number of years. Light therapy has many profound effects. It seems to have an effect on the production of Exosomes, it seems to activate what are called senescent cells. It also seems to activate Very Small Embryonic Like Stem Cells.

Lasers and light have a profound effect on many aspects of the cell. Light therapy goes down to the basics of cell biology. What we now know is that the mitochondria which are the powerhouses of the cells have photoreceptors. In light therapy there is absorption of photons in a portion of the mitochondria cells. This has a direct effect on the cellular electron respiratory transport chain. This involves the Krebs cycle which brings us back to biochemistry days.

ATP

The result in the improvement in the electron transport chain is greater production of ATP. ATP is the essential energy of most cells. If cells are exposed to more energy than they will typically be more efficient at doing their job. LLLT seems to paradoxically increase reactive oxygen species (ROS) in healthy tissue but most importantly it decreases ROS in those tissues which suffer from oxidative stress. So we have little effect adverse effects on normal cells from ROS but a significant positive effect on ROS in diseased tissue. The use of LLLT in patients involves mainly red and near infrared (NIR). The wavelength of this light is between 600-950 nm.

Low level light therapy have many profound effects on the cells. It appears that all genes from the antioxidant related category and genes related to energy metabolism and the respiratory chain were up regulated. It is thought that low level light therapy stimulates cell growth by influencing both directly and indirectly related to DNA synthesis and repair and cell metabolism. Stem cells are finicky enough. Anything we can do to nudge them along is so important. There is definitely more to come on this subject.

The team at Eyekandi are intrigued by LLLT, mitochondria, stem cell regeneration, and infrared light healing. Get in touch with us to share some insight, knowledge and ideas over a Bulletproof Coffee – We’d love to hear from you!
