It’s been well over a year since I bought my first pair of True Dark Night & Day Walkers. Since first putting the Night (Red Lenses) Glasses on, I was sold. I immediately felt my eyes and my nervous system relax. All the research I had done prior to experimenting with blocking blue, yellow & green light spectrums (from artificial light) had come true with just the first initial use of putting on these glasses.
That night was the first night in a looooooong time that I had experienced a full night of UNINTERRUPTED, 8 hours of deep sleep. The next day I woke up feeling refreshed and alert. This means a lot to me after having years of sleep paralysis and insomnia. I recommend buying both the night & day walkers as the day walkers have helped immensely during the day to mitigate headaches and eye strain while working.
So here are the Top 5 Reasons Why you NEED to block Junk Light:
Sleep is probably the most important aspect of our health, it balances our hormones, regenerates and heals the body, and renews the soul. It’s not just how much and how deep we sleep, but also WHEN we sleep and that’s where the True Dark glasses shine. They help reset our internal clocks back to the circadian rhythms nature has aligned with us. Not only that, but when we look at artificial light after the sun has gone down, this triggers a hormonal response to produce cortisol, which instantly shuts off our melatonin production for up to 4 hours.
2. Energy & Mood
You probably guessed this one, there are so many reasons why mitigating harmful artificial light with a proper set of blue blockers is so crucial to your health and energy levels. The main reason is the natural circadian rhythm balance, which it influences. This way when you wake up you will produce a healthy amount of cortisol, which should naturally dip off as we enter into the night. The eyes virtually control your nervous system, so when we feed it with healthy light at the right times (given you are sleeping/waking at reasonable times) then we can start to balance our mood and energy levels accordingly.
According to the corporatewellnessmagazine.com Article on Blue light. -
“Excess blue light creates Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) and this creates inflammation, even during the day. It also diminishes the function of your mitochondria and then your body has less energy to do the things it needs to do.” This is one of the many, many reasons why excess blue light can wreak havoc and cause loads of chronic inflammation within your body.
4. Fat-Loss & Increased Metabolic Rate
Alongside regulating and bringing balance back into your life as well as your nutrition, you will need to regulate your blue-light exposure, specifically at night. Do your best to atleast take a quick 10+ minute walk outside 3 times a day. When you expose your eyes and your body to harmful blue-light and emf you trigger a chronic state of stress/inflammation. Cortisol rises immensely at night and throughout your slumber for several hours after you shut off the lights. Your best bet is to bring a red light with you at work, use blue blockers & do your best to mitigate modern technological advancement stressors.
5. Eye strain, Headaches & Short Term Memory Loss.
The simplest way to prevent chronic headaches, eye-strain, and short term memory loss is to simply mitigate blue light. Blue light contributes to digital eye strain. Because short-wavelength, high energy blue light scatters more easily than other visible light, it is not as easily focused. Research has shown that lenses that block blue light with wavelengths less than 450 nm (blue-violet light) increase contrast significantly
The fact that blue light penetrates all the way to the retina (the inner lining of the back of the eye) is important, because laboratory studies have shown that too much exposure to blue light can damage light-sensitive cells in the retina.
So now you know that you should be mitigating blue light (from artificial sources) as much as possible. If you are interested in buying Blue Blocking glasses I highly recommend you check out True Dark’s website here.
