Light and Health

When thinking about health, the first thing that comes to mind is exercise and healthy eating. This is certainly a good start, but unfortunately human biology is much more complex! You also need to consider the quality of your sleep and how it affects your hormones.

In addition to the benefits of the Clear and Yellow lenses:

  • Significantly increase melatonin levels naturally – for immunity and protection against diseases, and for antioxidant activity, anti-aging effects, anti-cancer actions, hormonal balance, and much more
  • Optimise circadian rhythm and sleep quality – less fatigue, greater memory and cognitive function, and better mood the following day
  • Manage sleep problems – such as insomnia, restless nights, early wake-ups, etc.
  • Shift the circadian rhythm – go to bed earlier and fall asleep faster, and combat jet lag
  • Improve recovery and athletic performance
  • Induce relaxation and unwind the body and brain
  • Reduce stress and cortisol levels
  • Prevent mood disorders – suppressed melatonin secretion and poor sleep quality are linked with increased prevalence of emotional dysregulation, depression and anxiety
  • Aid bipolar disorder
  • Reduce ADHD symptoms by calming the minds
  • Prevent major diseases – such as type 2 diabetes, cancer, heart disease, etc.
  • Prevent weight gain, high blood pressure and obesity – blue light disrupts the metabolism, and hormones that control hunger
  • Improve digestive issues
  • Heal and repair the brain and body at a cellular level, and reduce oxidative stress

Why Filter Blue Light?

On average most of us spend more than 10 hours a day in front of digital devices, and even more indoors with unhealthy artificial lighting. Blue light after dark is unnatural and tricks your brain into thinking it’s daytime. It stimulates and energises the brain, which keeps you alert and awake while increasing your cortisol levels. Blue light simultaneously suppresses your body’s melatonin production. Even the smallest amount of blue light after dark is enough to stop the melatonin secretion and revert your melatonin levels to zero in a matter of few minutes.
