Remember back in school what chromophores were? That’s right, they are components of molecules, which absorb light.
ATP is the building block
ATP is produced when the chromophores on mitochondrial membranes are stimulated. That production leads to a biological cascade of events including protein synthesis.
Repair damaged tissues
Damaged tissues are repaired more quickly when cell reproduction and growth are accelerated.
Increased metabolic activity
The increase in enzyme outputs, oxygenation and nutrient availability drive metabolic activity.
The photons of energy stimulate chromophores at the beginning of the Krebs chain that leads to:
1. Increased synthesis of ATP.
2. Increased tissue oxygenation and nutrition.
3. Increased rate of tissue regeneration.
