It can improve the appearance of your skin, help you deal with pain and inflammation, and even boost your mood…

What I’m describing isn’t some previously undiscovered nutrient — I’m talking about red light.

My guest on today’s episode of The Dr. Gundry Podcast is Scott Nelson, the cofounder of JOOVV, a red light and near infrared light therapy startup. Just a few years ago, Scott was a self-admitted skeptic of the benefits of red light… until he started reading the science.

On today’s show, Scott and I are going to dive into the science behind red light therapy, how and why it could help YOU slow aging and heal faster, and a simple and free way to get many of those benefits today.

So tune in to this episode and learn all about the next big thing in health and longevity.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why light can actually give you MORE energy (2:45)
  • The proven beneficial effects of red light on your skin and on pain and inflammation (4:00)
