Tokai Night Coat, a specialised coating to support natural sleep.
Darkness is a natural cue to our bodies that it’s time for sleep, but in today’s digital world we are circumventing this by staring a bright screens for hours after the sun has gone down.
These electronic devices not only produce artificial light. They also produce blue light creating a two-fold problem when it comes to sleep.
Research has indicated that exposure to blue light suppresses the production of the sleeping hormone melatonin more than any other type of light because the body is more sensitive to this type of shortwave light.
Blue light wavelengths boost attention span, mood and reaction times. This can be great for daylight waking hours when the body needs to be alert, but at night this can become a problem.
Cutting out blue light, more specifically around 480nm, can aid a natural sleeping.
