Beneficial properties of sunlight

Sunlight consists of all types of the invisible spectrum, which includes the ultraviolet and infrared spectra, as well as the visible (violet, blue, green, yellow, orange and red colors). All sunlight consists of approximately 10% of ultraviolet radiation, 40% is visible light and 50% is infrared radiation. This percentage is almost the same in all seasons, only the intensity of the light flux changes.

Different spectra of sunlight differ in the long wavelength and frequency of oscillations, which determines their physical characteristics and different effects on physiological processes.

Ultraviolet, violet and blue rays are assigned to short-wave radiation, green, yellow and orange are assigned to medium rays, and red and infrared rays are assigned to long-wave ones.

Therefore, the use of sunlight for preventive and therapeutic purposes is as old as humanity itself. Sunlight, air and water have always been the most accessible healing factors for humans and animals.

The mechanisms of the influence of light on living cells of animal and plant origin.

- Transfer of energy from the membrane to the cell, increasing its potential activity.

-Education of physiologically active compounds in tissues

-Starting secondary neurohumoral processes and urgent adaptation processes

- Development of final photobiological effects or long-term adaptation

Therapeutic effect is associated with:

-With activation of molecules and cells

-With activation of microcirculation in biological tissue

-With potentiation of biochemical processes

-With potentiation of physical processes

Photoactivated processes in the body.

The visible spectrum of light has on the body:

Anti-inflammatory effect

Activation and microcirculation of the thymus gland

Changes in the level of PG (prostaglandins)

Equalization of osmotic pressure

Takani swelling reduction

Superoxide dismutase and catalase reactivation

Reduced lipid peroxidation

Analgesic effect

Activation of neuronal metabolism

Increased endorphins

Increased pain threshold

Decongestant action

Metabolic activation

Activation of microcirculation

Interstitial fluid disposal

Stimulating effect on reparative processes

ATP accumulation (adenosine triphosphate)

Activation of cell metabolism

An increase in the number of fibroplasts and other cells

Stimulating effect on regenerative processes

Acceleration of defect epithelization

Acceleration of protein and collagen synthesis

Acceleration of capillary formation

Stimulating effect on the immune response

Increased immune cell proliferation

Accelerating the maturation of immune cells

Increased Immune Globulin Reproduction

Reflexogenic effect

Irritation of nerve endings

Excitation of nerve centers

Stimulation of physiological functions

The main effects of the visible spectrum of light



-activation of hemoglobin

-recovery of the Krebs cycle

-stimulation of immune systems

muscle relaxant

-activation of metabolism



-exposure to the autonomic nervous system

- reduces spasm of smooth muscles

- reduces the activity of tropic harmonies


sympathicotonic effect



-increases the activity of tropic harmonies

-activation of metabolism
