Studies show that red wavelengths of light are most conducive for better sleep. The main reason for this is that the red-light spectrum consists of low color temperature, which is similar to what you’d experience while watching a sunrise or sunset — often even lower! The new TrueLight Luna Red® Sunset Sleep Light Bulb, inspired by TrueDark® Twilights Sunset eyewear, primarily emits red wavelengths of light and offers dimming capabilities to allow users to customize their space effectively before bedtime.
The human body needs warmer (redder) lighting in the hours leading up to bedtime as the wavelengths in the red light spectrum are closest to the wavelengths emitted by the sun during sunset. In contrast to blue junk light, warm red light is better suited specifically for evening hours because it helps the body produce more melatonin.
Melatonin is a vital hormone that helps regulate the timing of your sleep. It also has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that help preserve body tissue and the central nervous system. One of the best ways to ensure that you’re producing enough melatonin naturally is to manage your light exposure – especially at nighttime.
Tired of flipping light switches and tripping over the dog at night? We get it. It’s inconvenient, somewhat jarring, and can make it difficult to return to sleep. Fortunately, there’s a new solution for illuminating your surroundings without disrupting your circadian rhythm. The TrueLight Luna Red® Nightlight + Flashlight is a motion-sensing device that minimizes brightness and emits red light only to help keep your sleep/wake cycle on track.
