SomniLight Light Therapy Lamp
Our circadian rhythms (internal clocks) are regulated almost entirely by lighting cues. Bright, white light tells our bodies it’s daytime, while dim, warm light lets our bodies know it’s time to sleep. The right kind of light exposure can help establish consistent sleep schedules and help prevent circadian disorders like insomnia, Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome, and Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
SomniLight's Light Therapy Lamp emits a high percentage of blue wavelengths (up to 6500K color temperature) to replicate the effect of morning and afternoon sunlight. When blue wavelengths from either natural or artificial sources hit our retinas, it sends a strong signal for our bodies to stop producing the sleep hormone melatonin and begin producing wakeful hormones like serotonin and cortisol. The lamp can be used in the early morning and throughout the early afternoon to firmly establish this time as the beginning of the circadian cycle and to help prevent Seasonal Affective Disorder, also known as the Winter Blues.
Because melatonin, serotonin, and cortisol help regulate not only sleep but also mood, anxiety, and immune function, a properly attuned circadian rhythm is essential for general health and wellness.
SomniLight Light Therapy Lamp features five brightness levels (ranging from 600 lux to 10,000 lux) and three color temperatures: (3000K, 4500K, and 6400K), for maximum comfort.
