Light Therapy Visor

You know how it is for those of us who live in temperate countries. There are times when winter or fall arrives, and we just for some strange reason feel unnaturally depressed, simply because of the change in weather. Don’t we wish that the summer sun would remain there perpetually so that we can enjoy long days? Well, the $99.95 Light Therapy Visor is said to be the ideal visor to deliver the right kind of therapeutic light in order to counteract the effects of fatigue, jet lag, and Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). It will work differently from that of static devices which requires one to stare into a lamp, as the Light Therapy Visor is not only lightweight but portable as well. You might look rather silly wearing this unit on your head though, but on the other hand, at least it is nigh portable that you can use it just about anywhere. A trio of white and a similar number of red LEDs will be able to emit 800 and 80 lux respectively, delivering daylight spectrum light in just the right amount that is recommended by the National Institute of Health. This is known as light therapy, where it will block the release of the sleep hormone melatonin, and has been clinically proven to result in increased energy and alertness. It is said that one should wear the Light Therapy Visor anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes in the morning for optimal results, and you can also opt to alternate between white and red light therapy with a single press of a button. Each purchase comes with a travel pouch, and make sure you have a three AAA batteries handy at all times just in case it runs out of juice. ]]>
