Scott Nelson: What Is Photobiomodulation?
“We spend 93% of our time under artificial light; that's probably not a good thing, right? When we look at our ancestors who spent all their time outside, it makes sense that artificial light isn't healthy for us. So, the first thing you should do isn't' go buy a product like ours. Instead, go outside and get more natural sunlight; become more aware of how natural light is good for your body. Even if you're outside for just 5-10 minutes, you'll notice a difference in how you feel. If you don't notice it, then maybe you should invest in a light therapy device.” – Scott Nelson

Power Quotes From The Show
“At its core, photobiomodulation is photons of light or certain wavelengths of light and studying how our bodies metabolize them and the different physiological inner workings of how we digest and metabolize light. Light is food. Photobiomodulation essentially allows your cells to do what they're supposed to be doing but at a heightened level. “ – Scott Nelson
“These specific wavelengths of light are helping our cells produce more energy. That's why photobiomodulation has such a long list of benefits. It's so extensive that it almost sounds too good to be true, but all of these benefits like skin health, muscle recovery, joint pain relief, cognitive function and more are all supported by peer-reviewed clinical literature.” – Scott Nelson
“When people are researching about skin health, they might have this vanity concern. Even though this vanity concern exists, photobiomodulation is really more of a longevity and cellular health tool. If you chase the healthy behaviors and you actually do the things that fill you up from a physical and emotional space, the vanity concerns will be a by-product. However, if you only chase the vanity, your results are going to be limited.” – Josh Trent
“At Joovv, we fundamentally believe that everybody should be getting more sunlight. Something like our device is a great hack, but everybody should be getting more natural sunlight. Unfortunately, it's just something that's harder to do in a climate like Minnesota's or the upper Midwest in general.” – Scott Nelson
