Circadian lighting is lighting that is fit for biological purpose, whether it is sleep or alertness. Our bodies have very visceral responses to the different wavelengths in light; circadian lighting carefully considers these responses to light spectra and provides the right spectrum to produce energy and a different spectrum for preparing for sleep. Healthe’s patented True Circadian™ LED spectrum technology helps to regulate your sleep/wake cycle, which is imperative to maintaining overall wellbeing and health.
Because many traditional forms of lighting could be making you tired, or worse, sick.
Many people find they are tired during the day, have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep at night. It could be because of insufficient interior lighting.
Sound unrealistic? It’s not.
Light is a key trigger for how our bodies function. When we are not getting the right light exposure, our body doesn’t function properly, and can cause a variety of health issues, such as fatigue, cognitive and sleep disorders, metabolic issues such as weight gain, low energy, poor memory retention, slower healing, poor physical and mental performance, and more.
Science shows that there are certain wavelengths in light that trigger cyclic physiological and neurological responses.
When we are exposed to sunlight, our eyes interpret the wavelengths and send signals to our brain to trigger neurological and physiological functions – such as hormone production, sleep, healing, and metabolism. The regularity of the sun keeps our internal clock stable and regular, supporting wellbeing and health through a consistent sleep/wake cycle.
This was much easier before the industrial age, when humans migrated to an indoor environment, getting away from outdoor lifestyles that were dictated primarily by the day/night cycle.
Today, we spend approximately 85% of our time indoors, often under electrical lighting that is not like the natural sun and insufficient to send the right signals to our brain to maintain alertness during the day but postpones melatonin production (the sleep hormone) at night. This throws our bodies into dysrhythmia, a disorder that can lead to cognitive and metabolic issues, fatigue and sleep disorders as well as lowered energy, performance and alertness during the day.
Healthe started with science, consulted nature and developed patented technology to bring you the healthiest lighting there is. Science shows that the wavelength 480 nanometers acts as a stimulant. It is prevalent in natural sunlight, and insufficient in traditional lighting.
Healthe has developed patented technology that adds 480 nanometers for a boost during the day, keeping you energized, and removes 480 nanometers at night to tell your body it is time to prepare for sleep, and initiate the production of melatonin, the sleep hormone.

It’s as easy as changing a light bulb!
Truly. You can get better sleep, increase your daytime energy and regulate your sleep/wake cycle, initiating better all-around health simply by replacing existing lighting with the best lights for health and wellbeing: Healthe circadian LED lighting. Whether you are looking for a sleep lamp, energizing desk lamp, or a baby light for low light in a nursery, we have the LED biological lighting for your home that you are looking for. Interested in commercial applications? Healthe has specification-grade, architectural linear luminaires with a 0-10V control interface, a distributed DC system to pair with Building Management Systems, and a smart all-in-one control system with customized scheduling for 24/7 facilities.
Select the rooms you spend time in during the day, where you want to maintain energy and alertness, such as offices or common spaces. Replace your existing bulbs with Healthe’s GoodDay bulbs, using them throughout the day for higher energy levels, better concentration, and productivity.
In the areas you use before bed, such as the bedroom or a corner reading nook, simply replace existing bulbs with GoodNight bulbs or lamps. With a relaxing soft glow, they are the best LED bedside lighting for better sleep, and make ideal bedtime reading lights.
Consider lighting for babies too. You should use the Sleepy Baby bulb or Nursery Lamp for nursery lighting, so you limit disturbances to your baby as much as possible, and support your baby’s circadian rhythm while they are growing.
In rooms you frequent both day and night, we recommend our dynamic health lights. Our SunTrac® products can be automated to give you the right light at the right time, day or night. Our SunTrac product line (link to SunTrac Ecosystem page) automates healthy lighting, giving you 480-enriched lighting during the day and 480-depleted light at night in a single fixture, for all-around simplicity, convenience and health, without a second thought.
Circadian lighting, also known as biological lighting or human-centric lighting, is ideal for workplaces, , offices, department stores, health clinics, library and classrooms, and beyond, because it offers interior spaces a light spectrum similar to sunlight, to stimulate and energize occupants. It is also ideal for 24-hour facilities, such as homes, hotels and resorts, senior living communities, and hospitals and health care facilities, because it balances that stimulating light during the day with light that allows occupants a better rest in the evenings.
