Why does LED lighting positively affect mood and productivity?

Our body responds positively to natural sunlight. It’s why a bright spring day can put you in a good mood and fill you full of energy. When people get insufficient light, whether it’s just a grey day or the shorter days of winter, they can become sluggish or even suffer from significant interruptions to mood and function. Conventional lighting does not provide enough light at the blue-green end of the spectrum to compensate for the lack of natural sunlight. Pristine LEDs cast light that is 90% equivalent to natural sunlight. This may help control the body’s production of melatonin, a chemical that regulates the body’s sleep-wake cycle. Broad spectrum LED light like this is used in light therapy boxes to treat a broad range of conditions, including Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), migraine headaches, postpartum depression, jet lag, certain sleep disorders and shift-work problems. …………………………………………………………………………………………….
