Fall Asleep and Wake Up with an Ease with Blue Light Therapy

The mechanisms underlying the positive effects of light still remain largely unknown. However, within the last decade or so, researchers have discovered a new type of light sensitive cell (photoreceptor) in the eye called melanopsin. This novel photoreceptor has been shown to be an essential component for relaying light information to a set of so-called non-visual centers in the brain. In the absence of this photoreceptor, research showed that non-visual functions are disrupted, the biological clock becomes deregulated and 'free-runs" independent from the 24 day-night cycle and the stimulatory influence of light is impaired.

What is Blue Light Therapy?

That’s why one developer, Alexander Stone, created an app that is based on this science, an incredible brain stimulation app that can make you fall asleep and wake up with an ease. It is called Blue Light Therapy, it is compatible with both iPhone and iPad and it is simple to use.
