Light therapy specialist Lumie launches new light for SAD & well-being
Cambridge-based light therapy leader Lumie is launching a new bright light today. Lumie Vitamin L (RRP £90) is a slim bright light for SAD and well-being that you can use anywhere.
Lumie Vitamin L simulates a UV-free sunlight to improve mood, energy and focus. It has a rippled diffuser to create a soft comfortable light that emits 10,000 lux at 20cm. Typical treatment time is 30 minutes which can be taken over more than one sitting. Just like Lumie’s other light boxes, Vitamin L is a Class IIa medical device which means it’s rigorously tested to European health and safety standards. It is also backed by scientific research*.
“Bright light has been demonstrated to have a positive effect on our level of alertness, mood, well-being, sleep patterns. The compact and slimline design of the Lumie Vitamin L makes it easy to take it between home and work and allows you to reap the multiple benefits of light wherever you are and whatever you are doing.” Dr Victoria Revell, Circadian Rhythm Expert, University of Surrey.
Available now for pre-orders on Lumie.com and amazon with shipping from 21st September 17. Lumie Vitamin L will be available from Lumie.com, all branches of John Lewis, amazon, Boots and Selfridges.
