|With the end of Daylight Saving time many Americans are affected by the increased darkness and experience what is known as the winter blues. The Philips goLITE BLU($280) is a new therapy light improved mood, energy, sleep and a sense of relief from the winter blues, and also with a built-in clock and timer.
"Light therapy is a natural way of beating the winter blues without the use of drugs or artificial stimulants. Results can be felt within a few days with as little 15 to 20 minutes of use per day. "The goLITE BLU represents significant improvements in portable blue light therapy," says Adams. "Science has shown that to stimulate the body clock we don't need intense white light. This is because a person's body clock can respond up to two times greater to blue light than to white light and white light is 50 times more intense. Our Bluewave technology, which is incorporated into the goLITE BLU, dramatically reduces the overall intensity of light as compared to bright white therapy devices and can help minimize potential side effects such as eyestrain, glare and headaches."
