Lowering Blood Pressure With Light

Posted in Heart Health

Lowering blood pressure with light. This study applied red light and measured nitric oxide levels in the blood and they observed strong benefits. ” Our results indicate that the abdominal acute application of PBM (photobiomodulation=light shining on the body) at 660nm (deep red light) is able to induce a long lasting hypotensive (lowering of blood pressure) effect in hypertensive rats and vasodilation by a NO (nitric oxide) dependent mechanism.” Shine with light for heart health. Life Sci. 2017 Apr 14. pii: S0024-3205(17)30159-5. doi: 10.1016/j.lfs.2017.04.011. [Epub ahead of print] Hypotensive acute effect of photobiomodulation therapy on hypertensive rats....

Restor Neurol Neurosci. 2016;34(2):201-14. doi: 10.3233/RNN-150559. Pre-conditioning with transcranial low-level light therapy reduces neuroinflammation and protects blood-brain barrier after focal cerebral ischemia in mice. Lee HI1, Park JH2, Park MY2, Kim NG3, Park KJ3, Choi BT2,4,5, Shin YI1,6,1, Shin HK2,4,5,1. Author information Abstract PURPOSE: Transcranial low-level light therapy (LLLT) has gained interest as a non-invasive, inexpensive and safe method of modulating neurological and psychological functions in recent years. This study was designed to examine the preventive effects of LLLT via visible light source against cerebral ischemia at the behavioral,...
