Recommended LED Lights for Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
I am considering buying daylight lighting, to combat potentional Seasonal Affective Disorder. I was wondering if you have had other customers purchasing lamps with this goal and about their experience with 4000K 5000K 6500K options?
We certainly have had customers purchase our lamps in order to treat SAD. We do not have any technical documentation or test results specifically addressing the treatment of SAD symptoms, however, so we are unable to make any medical claims as far as its efficacy is concerned.
That being said, the lighting science and theory would suggest that our 95 CRI lamps would be an excellent candidate for SAD treatment by virtue of the spectral similarity to natural daylight. We have seen that our 4000K and 5000K color temperatures are generally the most popular, while the 6500K is also a nice option which features rich blue light content that is similar to what is typically found in the north-facing sky.
