What we see as light is only the visible portion of a broad spectrum of electromagnetic radiation wavelengths. We perceive different wavelengths within that spectrum as different colours. Wavelengths in the range of about 400-500 nanometers, which we perceive as the colour blue, can influence mood, circadian rhythms, attention and more.
Blue light comes to us naturally in the form of sunlight. But that same wavelength is also produced by many digital device screens, such as those found on computers, smartphones and tablets.
The health effects of blue light
The eye’s cornea and lens are unable to filter out blue light before it enters the eye. The only part of the eye that can block blue light is the macula, located in the retina all the way at the back. Macular pigment is full of lutein and zeaxanthin, carotenoids that help the eye absorb blue light. Life Extension created a delicious, berry-flavoured gummy that delivers lutein and zeaxanthin to support eye health.
