A New Biohack

Wondering what people think of this new light gadget which is supposedly not only great for jet lag, but for energy throughout the day as well?

    The sun is safe. $270?! 


  • Unfortunately, some of us don't live in sunny climates all your round, so getting sun during the cold winter months is not very possible. I thought this seems like a good option.
  • Hey Eilee, the Valkee has been around for a number of years now. It's pretty much been exposed as a complete scam. http://earlightswindle.com/story.htm 


     


    They've been trying to validate their oversized claims and have yet to do so imo. The 'study' they site is of questionable quality in a low impact journal. Their device is actually just two 448nm LEDs emitting 4.3mW of power at 1cm away. You could purchase similar LEDs for about $2 instead of $269 if you really wanted to test it out. =)


     


    Here's the "study":  www.humancharger.com/r/study/


      


    Sorry, the quotes got a little messed up in the copying/pasting but they should give you an idea of the device and results.


     


     "Interestingly, a significant effect of TBL was not observed until post-travel day 4, which may indicate a cumulative effect of the TBL treatment."


     


    "The TBL group reported a significantly lower VAS score on post-travel days 4 and 5 ( P 5  0.0071 and P 5  0.0403, respectively) and a trend toward significance on post-travel day 6 ( P 5  0.0685) compared with the placebo group."


     


    "The bright light (luminous fl ux: 3.5 lm; illuminance:9100 lux measured at a distance of 1 cm; irradiance: 4.3 mW ∙ cm 2 2  measured at a distance of 1 cm; photon density:1.13 3  10 16  photons ∙ cm 2 2  ∙ s 2 1  ) was produced using white LEDs with a peak in the short-wavelength blue region at 448 nm."
