How effective is the Nature Bright Sun Plus
The light from the Nature Bright Sun Plus is similar to what we get from nature. Since in some parts of the world this kind of light does not exist throughout the year, this light therapy lamp comes in handy. It not only helps adjust our body’s internal clocks, but the negative ions produced have a profound positive effect on our moods. Thus helping us feel energized and our concentration levels are not interfered with.
The Nature Bright Sun Plus has valuable input from researchers at Harvard University as we worked with them towards a functional and effective light therapy. This means its components and how they work is invariable.
What others say:
“I researched only the top Amazon Therapy Lamps out there and realized that most of them are very similar more or less. With the exception of this one. This is really the only one that I was able to find that seems to have a really unique quality, design, style, and overall sleek look.”
“After using this consistently for a week now, I am totally feeling an increase in positive energy. By that, I mean my couch potato-ing need has decreased significantly, my sunny disposition hasn’t been as easily tarnished by everyone else’s negative nelly attitudes and my occasional daydreaming of duck taping Marc’ s mouth closed have almost vanished.”
Though we cannot control the different seasons throughout the year, how we feel through those seasons can be regulated. When temperatures drop and the sun’s rays are no longer visible, we can still experience the natural light through Nature Bright Sun Touch Plus. Hence our energy levels remain constant, ability to concentrate and keep up with our daily routine is not adversely affected.
