If you've heard about the damage blue light can do to your eyes, then you'll be excited to learn there is a new product that was built to mitigate the blue light damage caused by our devices and LED home and office lighting.
We're a Device Centric Culture
Wow, if we thought time spent indoors and on devices was increasing before, what just happened in 2020 was a showstopper. We spent all of 2020 mostly indoors and more connected to a device than ever before. Well, those of you out there that didn't take advantage of the empty parks and woods to get out constantly :)
In general people spend over 95% of their time indoors. Between cars, work, gym, store, and home we're larger indoors under junk lighting and connected to devices.
What's the Downside?
Now, being on devices a lot means our eyes take a beating. We're looking at screens that are close to our eyes, which is stressful to the eye. Looking further away is relaxing to the eye.
In addition, the high intensity blue light can be harmful to the eye. Without the red and infrared light (which is present along with blue from the sun) we don't receive the antidote to the blue. most indoor lighting and device lighting is free of infrared and has little red compared to blue light.
This blue light from devices can cause free radicals to be developed in the eye. Over time, scientists and doctors believe this can cause macular degeneration.
What Can You Do?
Wear blue light blocking glasses. Blue light blocking glasses, like those found here, have been shown to protect the eyes from blue light.
Use Candles at night
The folks at Neurohacker have done it again. Not only did they invent one of the very best, and the first ever, pre-built nootropic stack, and a longevity supplement, now they have invented a blue light supplement.
We all know we should be outside ALL DAY.
And wear blueblockers whenever the sun goes down.
Most of us do not do this.
Trust me, I know a lot of biohackers and I can count on one hand how many of them actually wear their blueblockers at night. I wish more of your would just do that because it makes a HUGE difference.
So, when you ignore my advice and work on a laptop indoors all day and don't wear your blueblockers at night, there's now a supplement built specifically to mitigate the damage the blue light is doing to your eyes.
I've been using it for a month and I really like it.

- Saffron Stigma Extract
Main Claim: Supports macula health, blue light resistance, and retina function
Saffron is the world’s most expensive spice, contains a variety of eye-healthy carotenoids, and supports macula health, blue light resistance, and retina function.
- Goji (Lycium barbarum) Fruit Juice Extract
Main Claim: Supports retina health and photoreceptor function

Methylcobalamin (an active form of vitamin B12) is critical for the healthy function of the optic nerve that transfers information between the eye and brain.
There you have it. I'm definitely excited about this product. I think this is the first and will be shown to be the best supplement in this market. Many others will follow now, but will they be any good?
