Humans are programmed to be active and awake while the sun is shining, and at home in bed when it is dark at night. Without enough sunlight exposure in the day, this can result in us feeling low, lethargic and unproductive.
Whether you have SAD (seasonal affective disorder), or sit in a dark office cubicle, the Beurer Daylight Lamp is specially equipped to emit 10,000 LUX to help promote positive hormones so you feel happier.
Exposure to sunlight increases the brain’s release of a hormone called serotonin. This is associated with boosting mood and helping a person feel calm and focused. At night, darker lighting cues trigger the brain to make another hormone called melatonin. This hormone is responsible for helping a person feel sleepy and go to sleep. Without enough sunlight exposure, a person’s serotonin levels can dip low. Low levels of serotonin can result in us feeling low, lethargic and in some cases it can lead to a higher risk of seasonal affective disorder (SAD).
Our daylight lamp simulates the natural sunlight with a light intensity of around 10,000 lux – normal electric light in the home or office has a lighting intensity of only 500 lux and is unable to affect the hormonal balance.
The compact size of the daylight lamp is possible thanks to modern LED technology. This results in a particularly bright and even illumination through the screen. Flicker-free and UV-free. Energy saving.
The Beurer daylight lamp is a compact size with a diameter of 8.4". It's slim and modern design allows the lamp to fit in easily anywhere. Use it at home or take it to the office – the lamp can be used anywhere there is a power outlet.
