Health Benefits of LED Lighting

Human beings need light.

On a basic level, natural light tells us when it’s time to wake up and go to sleep. On the other hand, man-made light sources are responsible for enabling a variety of different activities when natural light is simply not available. 

-As a result, we are exposed to light (of all different kinds) every day and that light has an effect on our overall well being and health. Research indicates that LED lighting can provide a variety of health benefits.

 Here are some reasons why LEDs are good for your health:

  1. Balances Circadian Rhythm
    Research indicates that proper exposure to natural light promotes a healthy and regular circadian rhythm and LEDs seem to do the trick.
  2. Decrease Occurrence of Headaches
    For those who suffer from headaches and migraines, fluorescents can have devastating side effects. The good news is that there is now an alternative! LED bulbs do not flicker, and in turn can help ease headaches.
  3. Increased Learning Performance
    When LEDs are applied in a learning environment, research suggests that learning performance is increased. This makes LEDs an optimal investment for schools. Let’s help students succeed.
  4. Decrease Stress and Anxiety
    We all know how spending a day outdoors can help reduce stress. Though we may not be able to consistently get outdoors in busy day to day life, LED lighting can offer help. LED lighting has been associated with decreased levels of stress and anxiety in indoor environments.

Why LED lighting is important for seniors?

Seniors and the elderly have struggled with poor and ineffective lighting for years. Poor lighting can impair their vision and causing further complications when trying to read both small and larger print. Lighting can be critical in helping to reduce falls and injuries among seniors. Avoid shadows as much as you can. Use well-placed floor lighting to make sure you can have solid footing on the ground. 

So, there you have it. We all know that LED lighting is good for the environment, but, we are now finding that LED lighting is good for people too! Making a switch to LED is one simple way to have a positive impact on people.
