Nighttime Sleep Hacking Glasses
The concept of blocking the blue light spectrum, which is the biggest culprit of circadian rhythm disruption in today’s modern world, is not a new one. There are many “blue blocker” glasses that have been around for a while, but they are a one-size-fits-all approach. That’s overkill for use during the day and are not quite strong enough for use before bed. So TrueDark created their Sleep and Performance Technology.
When you are ready to shift into sleep mode, simply reach for Truedark® red lensed eyewear that tells your body it’s dark, helping you get ready for a great night’s sleep. TrueDark is designed to be worn 30 minutes to 2 hours before going to bed or wanting to sleep - 98% of blue, green and violet wavelengths are blocked!
You can still see to read, watch TV or work on your computer/tablet/phone, while your sleep hormones shift to night mode. When your head hits the pillow, you’ll fall asleep quickly and sleep more deeply.
Twilight glasses are also great for managing time-zone shifts, such as when traveling. Another great use is for people (such as new moms) who get up in the middle of the night and need to get back to sleep quickly. For those who live in far northern climates where it’s light well into the night, Twilight glasses can provide “early darkness” for better summertime sleep.
Combined with daytime use of TrueDark Daywalker glasses, you’ll experience 24-hour protection from junk light.
A pair of these glasses come with:
- Polarized plus anti-reflective coating on lenses
- Lightweight matte black stainless-steel frame
- Hard-shell glasses case
- Microfiber lens cleaning cloth
How patent pending TrueDark work before bed
As the night wears on, if you were a cave man (and your body still thinks you are…hence the internal clock your body uses), blue light would go away when the sun went down, which prepares the body and brain for sleep and signals the body it’s time to do repairs. But night removes more than just the blue spectrum. Green and yellow goes away too. Here is more detail on why blocking those additional spectrum matters in deactivating the melanopsin-infused sensors in your eyes.
That’s where traditional blue blockers don’t quite cut it, because the green and yellow spectrum continue to flow through to your brain, stopping your brain from triggering natural production of melatonin.
Patent pending TrueDark glasses are the only solution on the market that goes beyond a simple blue light filter. TrueDark blocks ALL the spectrum that impact sleep and performance, including greens and yellows. Twilights are designed to wrap around the side of your eyes to minimize light leaking in at the edges — a key part of getting the full benefit from wearing the glasses at night when you want to block ALL blue, green and yellow spectrum.
The result? Your melanopsin sensors deactivate. your brain floods with natural melatonin and, well, nighty-night.
TrueDark™ provides protection from uncontrolled light in your environment. This prevents you from falling into the pitfalls that happen when your body’s internal clock is thrown off its natural course due to artificial lighting, travel, and shift working, to name a just a few common culprits. Benefits include:
- Improve sleep quality
- Reduce brain inflammation
- Support weight loss
- Block harmful or overly strong light wavelengths emitted by LEDs, electronics, phones, tablets and computers.
- Reduce daytime eye strain
- Synchronise your circadian rhythm
- Increase energy and focus
In 2015, TrueDark's co-founders recognized advances in science and were interested in creating solutions to stop junk light based on cutting-edge research.
The goal was to educate the world on how light impacts sleep as there is a direct correlation between light-emitting devices and health. When they discovered there wasn’t a solution that worked for both day and night, they developed TrueDark®. With this invention, they are helping people all over the world take more control over the light in their environment. This goes beyond just blocking junk light, and expands to add healthy light and harness the power of good light at a cellular level.
TrueDark® is a health and wellness technology brand that is committed to improving people’s health and performance by providing products, tools and education that help them control the light in their environment. Their goal is to help you sleep, feel and live better.
