CIRCADIAN Light LED Breakthrough Verified by UL: White Light with Less than 2% Blue Content at Night
STONEHAM, MA ----- The significant health risks linked to the use of LED lights at night may have finally been solved by an innovative new LED technology. CIRCADIAN® Light’s new Night-Safe™ LEDs are the first lights verified by UL, the leading global safety certification company, to emit white light with less than 2% blue content at night. This medically-significant breakthrough addresses the growing scientific evidence that exposure at night to the 10 - 30% blue light content of conventional LEDs has a profound negative effect on many aspects of human health and performance.
Most energy efficient LEDs in the market today are rich in the blue wavelengths that at night trigger the metabolic processes involved in hypertension, atherosclerosis, and cardiovascular disease through:
1.) Disruption of the circadian system (phase shifting and circadian misalignment)
2.) Melatonin-suppression and phase shifting
3.) Activation of chronic inflammatory processes causing atherosclerosis in blood vessels

To combat the detrimental effects of blue rich light at night, CIRCADIAN Light introduced a Dynamic Blue Spectrum control light solution that removes over 90% of the bioactive blue content at night to manage the risk of cardiovascular disease.
