Sleep Tools

  • Swanwicksleep – Have you ever wished you had better sleep? Do you have trouble sleeping at night? Blue light is in your cell phone, TV screen, computer, bathroom and kitchen lights, alarm clock – almost everywhere. When we stare at these screens – as you may be doing now – it tricks our bodies into thinking it’s still daytime. This means we don’t produce as much melatonin. Melatonin, also known as N-acetyl-5-methoxy tryptamine, is a hormone that is produced by the pineal gland in animals and regulates sleep and wakefulness. Melatonin is also produced in plants where it functions as the first line of defense against oxidative stress. – Wikipedia. Which means we have trouble falling asleep, toss and turn in the night, and wake up feeling tired. So if you are looking to block blue light check them out.
