Joovv + Sperti Vitamin D Sunlamp + FIR Lamps = Next Level Mitochondrial Activation

Is Joovv advanced technology? Yes. Science fiction? No. Just like plants use sunlight to heal and grow, our body is able to harness specific wavelengths of ultraviolet, visable, and infrared light and turn them into cellular energy. This, in turn, stimulates our body’s natural healing processes. The use of light for supporting health is known as Photobiomodulation (PBM) or Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT).

Joovv specifically utilizes 660nm RED LIGHT in the visable spectrum and 850nm’s in the NEAR-INFRARED spectrum. To learn more about the benefit of infrared, photobiomodulation and these two specific wavelengths I created a page just for that – Near (NIR) and Far (FIR) Infrared Light, Photobiomodulation (PBM).

The Sperti Vitamin D Sunlamp provides the special UVB rays that will generate Vitamin D naturally in your body. The Sperti Vitamin D Lamp is the only FDA recognized ultraviolet product for Vitamin D production in the human body, and independent studies have verified it’s effectiveness.

Analysis of The Vitamin D Lamp – Sperti Vitamin D Sun Lamp – This study was funded by the Federal Government with a National Institutes of Health grant. A peer reviewed publication. The effect of ultraviolet radiation from a novel portable fluorescent lamp on serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 levels in healthy adults with Fitzpatrick skin types II and III – In summary, the Sperti D/UV-Fluorescent lamp is efficacious in increasing 25(OH)D3 levels in healthy adults with Fitzpatrick skin types II and III after multiple exposures over a 4-week period, and provides an effective and relatively inexpensive method to improve vitamin D status….”

I’ve also mounted two far-infrared (FIR) bulbs in the room to further support mitochondria activation.

To the right is a Joovv produced video which goes over the differences between the benefits and differences of NIR and  and that of traditional far-infrared (FIR) sauna or bulbs. To be fair and honest, there is a big benefit to using both!

Far-Infrared (FIR) light has many amazing benefits to human physiology. FIR can upregulate or increase the quantity of NAD+. This supports better mitochondrial activity (ENERGY PRODUCTION).

FIR irradiation can upregulate the activity of mitochondrial complex I which increases the ratio of NAD+/NADH. The ratio of NAD+/NADH affects many important physiological phenomena in mammalian cells. For example, the increase of the NAD+/NADH ratio activates Sirtuin 1 (Sirt1), which targets numerous regulatory factors affecting stress management, metabolism and aging. The NAD+/NADH ratio also regulates the binding activity of the corepressor CtBP (carboxyl-terminal binding protein), which is involved in transcriptional pathways important for development, cell cycle regulation, and transformation.

​Another benefit to exposure to FIR and the benefit that intrigues me the most, is the improvement or increase in “EZ” or exclusion zone water. You will definitely want to learn more about this.

EZ Water – Water has three phases – gas, liquid, and solid; but findings from our laboratory imply the presence of a surprisingly extensive fourth phase that occurs at interfaces. The formal name for this fourth phase is exclusion-zone water, aka EZ water. This finding may have profound implication for chemistry, physics, and biology. Please watch Gerald Pollack video to learn more about EZ water and why exposure to FIR is a benefit to our health and longevity.

To the right is a video by Gerald Pollack, PhD’s. Dr. Pollack gives a great explanation of how we make EZ water via exposure to FIR. Yea, a big bonus!

How Does Photobiomodulation (PBM) Work?

Every cell in our body has millions of energy generators called the mitochondrion. These mitochondria are responsible for providing most of the required ATP for cells – a chemical responsible for energy release within cells. Not only responsible for energy, ATP drive a multitude of cellular and physiological functions including those directly related to injury repair and pain relief.

That’s where our PBM comes in. Using PBM delivered at the right frequency to affected cells, causes the mitochondria to spring into action almost immediately, producing increased amounts of ADP. The ADP then links with free oxygen singlets to produce ATP. Again, infra-red light increases the production of ATP in damaged or resting mitochondria.

When a cell is damaged through injury or trauma, or when cells get stressed (perhaps due to disease, injury or aging) the mitochondria produces nitric oxide (NO). Once, this happens the production of ATP is drastically reduced, or in some cases, stopped altogether. As a result, the rate of healing slows dramatically.

At the correct wavelength, density and intensity, PBM will displace nitric oxide allowing oxygen back in, so ATP is restored and oxidative stress reduced. So, once your normal mitochondrial function is restored, cell metabolism is improved and healing will occur much quicker.

Why Joovv?

Joovv is Advanced Technology and provides Advanced Results. I wanted to ensure that each and every patient enjoys the best experience and the most profound results, and that’s why I chose Joovv.

Joovv Quad Red Light Therapy is a FULL BODY red light therapy system that utilizes LEDs specifically designed to maximize therapeutic output. Joovv’s Electrostatic-coated lenses have a mirrored finish, so virtually all of the light produced by the device reaches the desired treatment area. It is the most powerful whole body panel on the market to deliver a therapeutic dose of photobiomodulation (PBM). In just 8-15 minutes, you will receive the most beneficial dose of PBM available.

Joovv also worked with the FDA to attain Class II registration, which allows them to conduct clinical trials with their devices—potentially revealing even more light therapy health benefits beyond what’s already been scientifically proven.
