Light therapy independently increases nitric oxide levels

Researchers at the Medical College of Wisconsin (Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiovascular Medicine), knowing the critical role of nitric oxide in angiogenesis (new blood vessel growth/collateral circulation), and understanding low level light’s influence (670nm) on increasing nitric oxide levels, decided to perform a study to see if low level light therapy was able to independently effect nitric oxide levels and angiogenesis. As expected, the study concludes with supporting light therapy’s ability to independently increase nitric oxide levels and increase new blood vessel growth in oxygen-deficient areas. This study is now published in the journal of molecular and cellular cardiology <view study>
