Red Light Therapy and Fat Loss

Thursday, July 20th, 2023

As red light therapy has increased in prominence in tanning businesses, customers have noticed something interesting. They’re losing more weight, fat, and inches. While these customers seek red light for other reasons, such as skin care benefits and anti-inflammatory effects, weight loss can certainly be a pleasant surprise for many.

There’s not enough research on the subject to discuss it as a benefit of the service, but there’s certainly plenty of anecdotal evidence. Best-selling author Ari Whitten even discusses the phenomenon in his book The Ultimate Guide To Red Light Therapy: How to Use Red and Near-Infrared Light Therapy for Anti-Aging, Fat Loss, Muscle Gain, Performance, and Brain Optimization.

“Given that red/NIR light stimulates both blood circulation and the release of fatty acids from fat cells, it is reasonable to believe that it may very well be the most effective tool out there for getting rid of stubborn fat. While more research is needed to confirm this, I actually developed a “stubborn fat protocol” around this several years ago, and based on my experimentation over the last few years with clients, I can say with a high degree of confidence that it works amazingly well,” Whitten wrote.
