NEWS RELEASE • Tampa, FL – Proving that healthy can be stylish, the six new lamps in the OttLite Wellness Series® are designed to enhance any décor while delivering three color temperature modes to work with the body’s circadian rhythm – OttLite’s exclusive ClearSun® LED that reduces eyestrain by 51%, neutral white and warm white.
Circadian rhythms are biological, mental and behavioral changes that follow a 24-hour cycle and respond to light and darkness within an organism’s environment. For instance, bright daylight, like OttLite ClearSun LED, stimulates hormones and neurotransmitters that influence overall wellbeing such as the production of serotonin which improves mood and happiness. Whereas more soft, yellow sunset-like lighting signals your body to begin producing melatonin which promotes sleep.
These lamps feature three color modes and brightness levels so you can tune the color temperature and intensity based on your environment and needs:
OttLite ClearSun LED – 5000 Kelvin temperature
- Closely matches the spectral output of the sun
- Sunlight has been shown to affect the body’s functioning and improve the way the eye works, mood, learning, alertness and productivity
- CRI (Color Rendering Index) of 97
Bright/Neutral White – 3500 Kelvin temperature
- Ambient lighting for tasks that don’t require high contrast illumination
Warm White – 2700 Kelvin temperature
- Yellowish light, similar to sunset
- Signals the mind that it is time to prepare for sleep and rest, calming
“The light we are exposed to every day matters – and impacts so much more than just our vision,” said John Sheppard, CEO of OttLite. “We take in light like we do any other nutrient, so at OttLite we make sure we are providing the best illumination for your eyes and body. Now by offering our eyestrain-reducing ClearSun LED and two additional color temperatures, we’re providing a holistic solution to help meet people’s needs and improve their lives throughout the day.”
Additionally, a new study published in the Journal of Lighting Research & Technology* shows that a light with an LED with a similar spectral output as the sun – like the OttLite ClearSun LED – leads to better visual comfort, better alertness, cognitive performance levels and better sleep than regular LED lighting.
Ranging in price from $59.99 to $109.99, these well-crafted metal lamps feature high-end finishes and adjustable shades and arms to direct light where needed. To complete the look and evenly disperse the low glare ClearSun illumination, each lamp includes a rounded diffuser.
The OttLite Wellness Series of lamps are available at www.OttLite.com and major online retailers.
Lamps include the Balance and Direct (pictured above) and the Adjust, Adapt, Harmonize and Restore (picture below).
