Protect from Blue Light
Bright light is what regulates your body’s sleep/wake cycle.
Exposure to blue light from electronics is believed to slow the production of melatonin, a hormone that signals your brain that it’s time to sleep.
Studies have shown that exposure to blue light at night can keep you from falling asleep and interfere with your natural sleep cycles during the night.
If you absolutely have to use a smart phone, computer, or watch TV after sunset, these products can help reduce your exposure.
