The Science Behind
Light and Your Health
When talking about our health and wellness we center our focus around things like nutrition, exercise, meditation, mindfulness etc. But there’s one large component we’ve been ignoring, or at least taking for granted.
And that’s sunlight.

is a Modern Health Crisis
But just how much does this compromise our health? Well, the short answer is it pretty much affects every aspect of it. Let’s start by talking about how light is absorbed – through the eyes.
These brain chemicals guide our mood, sleep, focus, and much more.
Dictates cortisol levels, managing stress responses.
Modulates digestion and nutrient absorption, ensuring optimal gut health.
Manages fluid balance and toxin filtration, essential for kidney health.
Controls reproductive hormones, impacting fertility and sexual health.
Fat Tissue Clock
Influences the storage and release of fat, playing a role in weight management.
Skeletal Muscle Clock
Directs muscle repair, growth, and strength, boosting physical performance.
Present in nearly every cell, these local clocks coordinate cellular growth, division, and repair for a genetic level.
Oversees cell repair and regeneration, enhancing skin health and appearance.
Regulates thyroid hormones for energy, temperature, and metabolism control.
Governs heart rate and blood pressure, helping maintain optimal circadian cardiovascular function.
Nervous System Clock
Modulates neural activity and cognition, supporting brain health.
Immune System Clock
Controls immune responses and inflammation, key to warding off infections.
Oversees breathing rates and lung function, for effective oxygen supply.
Regulates detoxification and metabolism, maintaining peak liver function.
Coordinates insulin production and glucose regulation, essential for energy and preventing diabetes.
Regulates female reproductive hormones, influencing fertility and menstrual cycles.
Brighter days, darker nights are what we need to be healthy.
Artificial Light Disrupts Your Body’s “Master Clock”. And Your “Master Clock” Does More Than Keep Time. It Influences Almost Every Aspect of Health.
Sunlight supports general well-being by transmitting information to the master clock in our brains via a special photopigment in the eye – melanopsin. Artificial lights don’t capture the qualities of sunlight needed to support a natural sleep-wake cycle.
Research shows that experiencing a natural sunlight experience, with enough sky blue light in the day and none at night – promotes better sleep, reduced fatigue, and increased focus and productivity.
