In modern life, most of us do most everything under artificial light - at the office, at the gym, at the store. The light bulb allows us to not be beholden to the sun and clearly a huge technological step forward for human life.

But have we gone too far? What if we’re missing something valuable to our health and performance from sunlight, especially the parts of the light spectrum that are missing from artificial light?

Scott Nelson, the co-founder of Joovv, is working to help us better understand this question. Scott has spent much of his career in leadership positions at some of the largest medicine technology companies, Medtronic and Boston Scientific to name two. Now with Joovv, he is commercializing full-body red light therapy and photobiomodulation devices designed for consumer use.

What is red light therapy and its benefits? Users report improved skin, accelerated muscle recovery, enhanced cognitive ability...even increased testosterone production.

These are sweeping claims. Is it too good to be true?

Host Geoffrey Woo raises up this exact question and more to Scott, and we learned a ton about Joovv's approach to red light therapy and how we can all benefit from being more thoughtful of the light we're around.
