Melatonin: What it is and Why You Need it

What is melatonin? Melatonin, also known as the “sleep hormone” is an important physiological sleep regulator in diurnal species including humans (1).  Note that regulator does not mean generator though; this is a common misconception. According to Neuroscientist Matthew Walker:  “Melatonin is a little bit like the starting official…

Is Melatonin an Effective Treatment for Coronavirus?

There is scientific evidence that excessive inflammation, oxidation, and an exaggerated immune response very likely contribute to COVID-19 pathology.(7)   As researchers race to find an effective vaccine for this virus, there may be other intermediate and anti-inflammatory treatment options to help regulate COVID-19 patients’ immune systems.  Melatonin plays an…

How SkyBlue® Light Boosts Energy and Improves Focus

Note that color temperature (CCT) alone does not communicate whether a light source will have the proper spectrum to address the melanopsin sensitivity curve.(3) SkyBlue® represents the missing link between artificial and natural light by bringing the circadian benefits of the sun to any indoor environment, regardless…

Circadian Light: What Is It & Why Should You Care?

How does circadian light work? There are three ways to implement a circadian lighting system: intensity tuning, color tuning, and stimulus tuning.  Intensity tuning involves maintaining a fixed correlated color temperature (CCT) and adjusting the intensity (brightness) of the light through a controlled…
