While light is all around us, the human eye is only able to see a very small portion of the full light spectrum. The NIRA bulb emits both the visible and the invisible near-infrared spectrums found in sunlight. NIRA near-infrared enhanced LED lighting is the first and only energy efficient LED light that contains the invisible spectrum of near-infrared energy your body needs1.
The near-infrared spectrum uniquely penetrates more than an inch beneath your skin’s surface to interact with cells in your muscles, skin, hormonal glands, brain, and your eyes2,3.
Yes. Near-infrared energy uniquely penetrates more than an inch beneath the skin’s surface to interact with the cells in your body4. This means a higher percentage of the cells in children receive the benefits due to their small size.
Exposure to blue-only light without the rest of the rest of the solar spectrum can damage retinal cells5,6. The sun provides blue light, however, it is never present without near-infrared energy being emitted as well.
Visible spectrum only LED light exposure has become a primary reason for sleep disruption7,8.
Typical LEDs that contain only the visible spectrum are devoid of near-infrared energy. Research has shown that near-infrared energy may help to regulate your circadian rhythm9 and support less disrupted sleep10.
Yes. Your eyes can see only a small portion of the complete light spectrum that we are exposed to in natural sunlight. Your body absorbs near-infrared energy found in the invisible portion of the light spectrum and converts that near-infrared energy into other energy (ATP11) that your body needs to thrive12.
No. The NIRA bulb is the only energy efficient LED to combine both the visible and invisible near-infrared spectrums.
At full brightness, the NIRA bulb mimics the entire solar spectrum of visible and invisible near-infrared energy (minus the damaging UV rays) at noon.
As it is dimmed, the NIRA bulb is similar to sunlight, where, as evening approaches, there is an increasing amount of near-infrared compared to the amount of visible light.
Yes. NIRA bulbs provide the benefits of the near-infrared spectrum without sacrificing energy efficiency.
Yes, however you don’t need a special dimmer. You only need a standard dimmer to dim the NIRA bulb. If you don’t have any, consider purchasing standard or “smart” dimmers here.
Yes. At full brightness, NIRA bulbs are comparable to typical, visible-only LEDs.
The NIRA bulb will last 50,000 hours. If it’s used three hours a day (the lighting industry standard), that’s 45 years! Think about what didn’t exist 45 years ago: the personal computer, smartphone, Facebook, Google, and Uber.
Yes. It will last longer if it is dimmed during use.
