EVOLUTION

2,5 million years of evolution created humans. Humans require light to live. In nature, the day begins with bluish daylight which starts all sorts of processes, like waking us up and providing energy. This continues until the sun goes down and turns red. Our bodies start winding down for sleep. That’s how it works naturally.

But we live in artificial lights, travel between time zones and work around the clock. Athletes have to be be at their best any time anywhere.

Sleep disorders, winter blues, jet lag and even the ability to perform at peak levels all require blue light.
