About Litebook Edge Portable LED SAD Light
It's really common that living with cancer takes a toll on your emotions and mental strength - and it's definitely not easy to stay positive. A recent study from Mount Sinai found that cancer patients who’d been exposed to bright white light had significant relief from feelings of depression. And it took just a half hour a day to work, over the course of four weeks. An earlier study showed that the same light therapy could help cancer patients feel more restful, too. To get these therapeutic benefits you need a special light that emits 10,000 'lux' - this is as opposed to a typical light that only emits 200 lux. The SAD lights are designed for this, and basically provide you with the equivalent of outdoor sunlight, but without the harmful UV rays. The Litebook EDGE Portable LED SAD Light simulates sunlight with a light intensity of 10,000 lux. It's also small enough to fit in your pocket! -
The Litebook EDGE represents the best combination of convenience, performance and value seen in a SAD light. Litebook technology is clinically proven for treating Seasonal Affective Disorder.
It also includes a pair of light-blocking glasses. As much as the body needs light at certain wavelengths to get firing - it also needs to avoid them at other times to allow it to prepare for sleep. By using the Litebook EDGE at times when you need light, and the glasses when you need to avoid it, you can help your body tackle jet lag and reset its internal body clock to a schedule that suits you. Ideal for travellers, students and shift workers whose body clock is routinely disrupted.

The best S.A.D. light ever! This is an incredible update of the original Litebook. I love the portability, long charging life and convenience. The handle on the back is very handy and can be used as a stand. The size makes it easy to pack around just like a cell phone. The light is bright enough, very effective and the auto-off is a great feature. I am very pleased with this product.
