Why Melatonin is the Secret to Getting the Sleep You Need

You may have heard that Melatonin is a great natural sleep aid. Taking melatonin supplements is one way we can make sure we get enough sleep. 

If you are looking for an easy, natural way to get more sleep, but without a supplement that may have unpleasant side effects, consider this alternative.

What is Melatonin? 

Melatonin is a hormone that is made by your brain and helps you control your daily sleep-wake cycles. Your body’s internal clock impacts how much melatonin is made in your body. 

Melatonin levels typically start to rise when the sun goes down. Your level of melatonin stays high for most of the night when you are in the dark. When your melatonin levels fall as the sun rises, your body awakens naturally. 

The amount of light that you are exposed to during the day directly impacts the amount of melatonin that is produced. During darker and shorter days in winter, your body may produce melatonin earlier than you anticipate, leading to feelings of fatigue, changes in energy and mood. 

The amount of light you are exposed to changes your natural sleep cycles. 

How does blue light interfere with sleep? 

Natural sunlight contains blue light wavelengths. LED lights also contain blue light wavelengths. These wavelengths directly impact your melatonin production. 

Being exposed to natural light or light from LEDs can disrupt your circadian rhythms too. 

In particular, blue light that is emitted from our screens makes it hard for our bodies to produce melatonin. Making it harder to fall asleep at night. 

How to use blue light blocking lenses to get better sleep? 

BluTech Lenses increase nighttime melatonin levels to help you fall asleep faster. 

These lenses help to block out harmful blue light, whether from natural light or from artificial lighting. By wearing blue light blocking lenses for 3-4 hours prior to going to bed, you are allowing your body to create the essential melatonin it needs. 

Wearing blue light blocking lenses during the day have other amazing impacts too! 

By wearing them during the day and when you are exposed to screens, your body can still produce normal levels of melatonin. This helps you to stay asleep longer. 

With more melatonin in your system, you can experience fewer awakenings throughout the night.
