Break Out: Performance at the flick of a switch – Propeaq – By Chrono Eyewear

June 1, 2017, 17:30 - 18:00

Blue light is actually everywhere. When outside, light from the sun travels through the atmosphere. The shorter, high energy blue wavelengths collide with the air molecules causing blue light to scatter everywhere. This is what makes the sky look blue. In its natural form, your body uses blue light from the sun to regulate your natural sleep and wake cycles. This is known as your circadian rhythm. Blue light also helps boost alertness, heighten reaction times, elevate moods, and increase the feeling of wellbeing. Artificial sources of blue light include electronic devices such as cell phones and laptop computers, as well as energy-efficient fluorescent bulbs and LED lights.

Exposure to blue light at night can lower the production of melatonin, the hormone that regulates sleep, and can help you shift your circadian rhythm. This technique was successfully used by many athletes in cooperation with Propeaq at the Olympic Games in Rio to prevent jet lag and to have extra energy available when it was needed most.

Chrono Eyewear is a company specializing in light and chronotherapy, this is the use of light for better performance by shifting the sleep/wake cycle and the effect of light on your metabolism for extra energy.
