The Desktop Light Therapy Box.Do you suffer from jet lag or Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)? Are you one of 35 million Americans who suffer from SAD which is all to do with a lack of sunshine? Are you depressed, tired and irritable as a result and does your nearest and dearest have to put it with you (but for how long ??) Bright light therapy is a safe, drug free way to counteract the effects of jet lag, work fatigue and SAD.
Just 30 minutes of exposure to 5,000 lux of daylight spectrum light from this slim box can block the release of melatonin, a sleep hormone. With less melatonin, people find they have increased energy levels and alertness. The light's small 5 1/2" x 3" footprint allows it to fit easily on work surfaces, unlike previous generations that take up significant desktop space. The light uses a special 36-watt bulb rated for 10,000 hours, electronic ballast to ensure buzz-free operation, and flicker elimination technology that prevents electromagnetic fields. Plugs into AC. 12" H x 5 1/2" W x 3" D. (3 1/2 lbs.).
