Recent studies conducted in companies show that EnergyLight baths
considerably improve the vitality and quality of life of office
Companies can use EnergyLight to improve the efficiency and well
being of their personnel. To keep up your energy level, you need a
certain minimum amount of light. The average daily dose is at least
2,500 lux for 2 hours. The light in your home or office usually
just isn't strong enough to have a positive effect on your energy
For example on a summer day outside light is approx.
1000,000 lux whilst on a dreary autumn day outside
light is only 1,500 lux and inside light at home or at work is only
a mere 300 - 500 lux.
Bright light sets the pace of our biological clock, which regulates
our hormone productions, and increases our activity level.
Light enters the eye and is transferred via
nuclei in the autonomic nervous system to the pineal gland
, causing the melatonic secretion of the gland to decrease. Melatonin
is a hormone that triggers sleepiness and is mainly produced when
it is dark.
Regular use of Philips' EnergyLight, particularly in
the morning will produce the best results. Depending on how long
and at what distance the EnergyLight is used, you will
notice its effect within one to two weeks. You don't even have to
interrupt your normal activities when you are taking your 'light
bath'; you can just eat your breakfast, keep on reading, writing,
watching television or working on the computer. All you have
to do is look at the light occasionally.
