The Verilux Liberty 5K is the ideal energy lamp for discreet use at home or the office to alleviate Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), the winter blues, and the effects of seasonal change. At only about 15cm W x 18cm H x 7.5cm D (6” H x 7” W x 3” D), it fits easily in a briefcase or backpack and sits inconspicuously on a desk or tabletop. But don’t let its compact size fool you: It emits 5000 LUX of soothing Natural Spectrum illumination – a good dose for daily use and moderate session times - and a full 50% of what’s available from lamps more than 10 times its size. It’s also effective to combat the effects of jet lag and shift work.
More than 30 years of research has proven that natural light cues internal processes that establish one’s mood, vigor, alertness, and resulting productivity. All of these processes can be negatively affected when deprived of that light, either via seasonal changes or when in darker environments away from natural light. Natural Spectrum light therapy helps compensate for the natural light the body is missing. This improves energy levels, reduces fatigue, and increases overall well-being.
Energy lamps work by stimulating photoreceptors located in your eyes. They emit light that stimulates both the cones and the rods and the recently discovered melanopsin, a photoreceptor that helps synchronize your body’s daily cycles so they’re properly reacting to daytime and nighttime.
The Liberty 5K’s 5000 LUX is a good amount for daily use and moderate session times. LUX is simply a measure of the intensity of a light at a given distance from its source, and the National Institute of Health identified 2500 to 10,000 LUX as the optimum range for effective, comfortable light therapy.
Combat seasonal change, the “winter blues” or the effects of shift work, jet lag, malaise or fatigue. The 5K’s balanced Natural Spectrum illumination taps the potency of light to gently cue your body to recalibrate and stabilize, naturally reducing fatigue and lethargy while improving focus and concentration.
