Natural light from the sun and sky has a balanced spectrum rendering colors perfectly. However, most artificial bulbs emit light in only a narrow scope of the visual spectrum. Aero-Tech's Full Spectrum bulbs are not colored or coated which could wear-off. Instead, they are made with pure neodymium which is a rare earth element mixed right in with our glass that acts as a natural spectrum filter to diffuse the dull yellow / green parts. This will produce a truer natural color which helps create a very pleasing environment. Our glass is imported from Europe and manufactured here in America with long lasting quality for you!

Helping the Environment!
In addition to saving money, you'll help the environment as well. Each year, Americans alone discard 160 million tons of garbage. Already 16,000 or 80% of all landfills were at capacity and closed by 1993. The conventional glass bulb takes about 500 years to biodegrade. By using fewer 26-1 Aero-Tech bulbs, you'll be reducing the trash load in America's shrinking and overflowing landfills.
More About Seasonal Affective Disorder
SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) is a type of winter depression that affects an estimated half a million people every winter between September and April; in particular during December, January and February.
What is SAD?
SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) is a type of winter depression that affects an estimated half a million people every Winter between September and April, in particular during December, January and February. It is caused by a biochemical imbalance in the hypothalamus due to the shortening of daylight hours and the lack of sunlight in winter. For many people SAD is a seriously disabling illness, preventing them from functioning normally without continuous medical treatment. For others, it is a mild but debilitating condition causing discomfort but not severe suffering. We call this subsyndromal SAD or 'winter blues.'
The symptoms of SAD usually recur regularly each Winter, starting between September and November and continuing until March or April. A diagnosis can be made after three or more consecutive Winters of symptoms, which include a number of the following:
- Sleep problems: Usually desire to oversleep and difficulty staying awake
but, in some cases, disturbed sleep and early morning wakening
- Lethargy: Feeling of fatigue and inability to carry out normal routine
- Overeating: Craving for carbohydrates and sweet foods, usually resulting
in weight gain
- Depression: Feelings of misery, guilt and loss of self-esteem, sometimes
hopelessness and despair, sometimes apathy and loss of feelings
- Social problems: Irritability and desire to avoid social contact
- Anxiety: Tension and inability to tolerate stress
- Loss of libido Decreased interest in sex and physical contact
- Mood changes In some sufferers, extremes of mood and short periods of hypomania (over activity) in spring and autumn.
Most sufferers show signs of a weakened immune, system during the Winter, and are more vulnerable to infections and other illnesses. SAD symptoms disappear in Spring, either suddenly with a short period (e.g., four weeks) of hypomania or hyperactivity, or gradually, depending on the intensity of sunlight in the Spring and early Summer. In sub-syndromal SAD, symptoms such as tiredness, lethargy, sleep and eating problems occur, but depression and anxiety are absent or mild. SAD may begin at any age but the main age of onset is between 18 and 30 years. It occurs throughout the northern and southern hemispheres but is extremely rare in those living within 30 degrees of the Equator, where daylight hours are long, constant and extremely bright.
Light therapy has been shown to be effective in up to 85 per cent of diagnosed cases. That is, exposure, for up to four hours per day (average 1-2 hours) to very bright light, at least ten times the intensity of ordinary domestic lighting.
Ordinary light bulbs and fittings are not strong enough. Average domestic or office lighting emits an intensity of 200-500 lux but the minimum dose, necessary to treat SAD is 2500 lux, The intensity of a bright summer day can be 100,000 lux!
A Report from the Mayo Clinic also says the following about Light therapy.
- This is the main treatment for many people with winter depression. In light therapy, you sit a few feet from a special lamp that's 10 to 20 times brighter than are ordinary indoor lights for 30 or more minutes each day, usually in the morning. You can do other activities, such as reading or eating breakfast, while sitting in front of the light. Light therapy is easy to administer and has relatively few side effects. Nearly 70 percent of people experience a reduction of their symptoms from daily light therapy, and about 50 percent experience remission while undergoing light therapy. Light therapy needs to be done daily until springtime, when the sun shines for a longer period during the day. Lights from tanning beds can't be used for light therapy, because tanning beds use potentially damaging ultraviolet light.
Using The Aero-Tech 5,000 Hour Full Spectrum Bulb can aide in getting the recommended amount of light per day needed to get rid of the winter blahhhs. It is recommended you contact your personal physician with any concerns about using light therapy for treatment.
