When we don’t get enough natural sunlight in our lives, light therapy serves to keep our body’s internal “circadian” clock in sync, so we are alert and awake in the day, and ready to sleep at night. Our health, mood and behavior are affected in the winter when the quality and quantity of sunlight is lessened. A direct consequence can be Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), winter depression, or sleep disorders.
Recommended by doctors for over a decade, we, at Alaska Northern Lights, build the best light therapy lights – the NorthStar 10,000™ and the Aurora LightPad MAX™. With no dimmers or blue light gimmicks, the NorthStar 10,000™ and Aurora LightPad MAX™ are designed for effective light therapy at a comfortable distance for 10,000 LUX. Both of our SAD light boxes use broad spectrum bulbs, without harmful UV rays. The bright light (think sunny window) helps make our boxes of the most effective SAD light boxes on the market. Proof of its effectiveness is shown by a return rate of less than 2%.
