The nasal cavity is saturated with blood capillaries and five major arteries connect directly to the circulatory system – making it the perfect location for non-invasive systemic photobiomodulation.
Vielight systemic photobiomodulation technology is hypothesized to boost the immune system and increase blood oxygenation levels.
Theoretical benefits include :
Up-regulation of cytochrome c oxidase
The mechanism of photobiomodulation is proposed to rest on photon absorption by cytochrome c oxidase (CCO).
Since CCO is an inducible enzyme, a longer-lasting metabolic effect is achieved by photobiomodulation up-regulating CCO concentration, which in turn enhances the capacity for cellular oxygen metabolism.
Photobiomodulation of the blood has been shown to increase nitric oxide (NO) and hemoglobin concentration (Δ[HbO]) as the electromagnetic energy dose accumulates over time.
