Blue Light and Night-Time Snacking
Cortisol is normally triggered by sunlight at the start of the day, however night-time exposure to blue light throws our circadian rhythm out of sync, stimulating late-night food cravings. According to our research, reducing circadian-disruptive blue light at night to safe levels for night-shift workers led to a 45% reduction in late-night snacking.
Reduce Night-Time Gastric Distress
Eating and snacking in the evening and night-time puts stress on the gastrointestinal systems, causing indigestion and poor sleep quality. Our study of night shift workers showed that reducing night-time blue light exposure to less than 2 microwatts per square centimeter resulted in a 20% reduction in gastric discomfort.
