Did you know that exposure to light suppresses the secretion of melatonin, a hormone that influences sleep and circadian rhythms? Exposure to light at night is one of the reasons a large number of people don't get enough good-quality sleep. Light of any kind can affect the secretion of melatonin but blue light at night activates a pigment called melanopsin and can disrupt melatonin and sleep more powerfully.
The average person spends 7 hours a day in front of some kind of screen. With our blue light blocking glasses you will no longer have to struggle for hours before falling asleep. Our amber-color amber color lenses filer blue light out and are great for use in the evening. There is blue light in LED lights, TVS, and screens.
Our blue light glasses are ideal for people who need to work late on a computer, people who watch TV, and any person who is exposed to excessive illumination in the evening.
Blue light activates a retinal pigment called Melanopsin that blocks the natural production of melatonin in the evening. By filtering blue light, they also can help protect our natural production of melatonin that should be being released at night to help us fall asleep faster. Several scientific studies have shown improved sleep quality and the ability to fall asleep faster with the use of glasses that block blue light.

Melatonin can help reduce the time that it takes to fall asleep (sleep onset latency). We think that 0.8 mg of melatonin is the perfect dose of melatonin for most adults. Under normal circumstances, melatonin is present in our body during the night and should be out of our system in the morning. Taking a lower dose reduces the likelihood of having high melatonin levels in the morning when the normal levels of this hormone tend to be zero, or undetectable. The total production of melatonin in adults is usually very low and has been estimated between 10 and 80 micro-grams (1000 micro grams= 1 milligram) so 0.8 mg IS enough.
When it comes to melatonin, the dose and the timing are very important, and "more" is not necessarily better.
Take only 1capsule 2 to 4 hoursprior to usual bedtime.

Melatonin is produced by the pineal gland in response to darkness. It is one of the most important messengers of the circadian system and the sleep-and-wake cycle in humans. Melatonin, and the circadian system, play an important role in the initiation of sleep, in the maintenance of sleep, and in many other body functions.
The exact mechanisms that control the production of melatonin are not completely understood but blue/green light is known to suppress the natural production of melatonin and can alter the circadian system. Blue/green light is sensed by specialized cells in our eyes that are called Retinal Ganglion cells.
In human beings, the pineal gland starts producing melatonin 2 to 3 hours prior to usual bedtime, hence the importance of taking this supplement before our usual bedtime for better results. Melatonin, can help reduce the time that it takes to fall asleep.
There may be a risk of allergic reactions to melatonin supplements.
There’s been a lack of research on the safety of melatonin use in pregnant or breastfeeding women
The possible long-term side effects of melatonin use are unclear.
As with all dietary supplements, people who are taking medications should consult their doctors before using any supplements. People with epilepsy, taking sedative medications, and those taking blood thinner medications need close medical supervision when taking melatonin supplements.
