Winter blues got you down? Boost your mood, energy, and sleep with a blue-spectrum light therapy device from Apollo Health. For years the world's leading light therapy researchers and doctors have known that full-spectrum, 10,000 lux light boxes can be very effective at treating seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and other circadian rhythm related mood disorders. But there is something new in store for light therapy: blue spectrum. If you or a loved one is affected by these type of disorders, the Apollo Health GoLite P1 Blue Spectrum Light Therapy Device may help easy your suffering and improve your life.


The GoLite P1 uses blue-spectrum light to boost your mood, energy, and sleep. Detailed view.

This spectral graph shows that Apollo's Bluewave technology precisely matches the wavelengths (446 - 477 nm) that are most effective in treating seasonal disorders. View larger.

Bluewave LED technology produces the same amount of effective light as natural sunlight, eliciting a stronger and quicker response. View larger.
Widely acclaimed as the best-selling, most-recommended manufacturer of 10,000 lux light therapy boxes, Apollo Health has taken a technological step forward with the GoLite P1. Recently, researchers have discovered that a very specific range of blue light is, in fact, the most effective color (wavelength) in treating these disorders. After years of research, Apollo has released this patent-pending product that delivers only the most effective blue spectrum light. Utilizing only the most effective wavelengths, the GoLite P1 provides a more convenient treatment, and fewer side effects than traditional 10,000 lux full-spectrum light therapy devices.

The patent-pending Bluewave technology is the result of 10 years of research with medical universities and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Although other companies may tout the benefits of this new research, only Apollo Health participated in the actual trials. In fact, Apollo is the only company to produce lights that provide 100 percent of the effective blue light spectrum. Bluewave is the most important because it provides a higher effective response than most full spectrum light at one-tenth the intensity of a regular 10,000 lux light therapy device. This means light therapy is not only convenient, but easier on the eyes with fewer side effects. Because Bluewave is so effective, all of the Apollo Health Britewave products have also been upgraded with the new technology. It is clear: Bluewave is the light therapy technology of the future.

Apollo Health recommends keeping the GoLite P1 at 20-22 inches from your face. Once you are comfortable with using the device, you'll be ready to take advantage of the GoLite P1's fully programmable interface and advanced features. This light therapy device is equipped with an adjustable treatment timer with an automatic shut-down, a protective flip cover, long-lasting eye-safe LEDs, and an anti-glare diffuser lens. After you've established your personalized treatment schedule, the GoLite P1 will remember your personal settings. For your convenience, the GoLite P1 has a built-in clock and a backlit digital LCD display. And as the world's smallest light therapy device, the GoLite P1 weights less than one pound. This device is UL, CUL, and CE safety listed, EMF-free, UV-free, and comes equipped with a two-year limited warranty.

The following information regarding the use of GoLite P1 has been provided by Apollo Health:

In almost all conditions, less than one hour is sufficient to produce the desired effect. Exceeding one hour may increase the chances of producing too much serotonin. If you begin to feel too energetic, euphoric, agitated, nervous, jittery, etc., you will want to reduce the amount of time. If you are using antidepressant medication, you should discuss this with your doctor, as you may need to reduce the level of medication or the amount of light you receive.

Most problems with light therapy happen when light is used for more than an hour. Over the last 20 years, light has been proven to be very safe and effective with no long term side effects or ocular damage. However, just as with other safe medications such as aspirin, too much light can cause problems. If you stay under one hour of light at a time, you shouldn't experience any difficulties.

I have had SAD all my life (I am 55). in 1996 I discovered that I had it and was laughed at because so little information was out there at the time. We had always thought SAD meant being depressed because of the holidays and lost childhood things. I bought a 2,500 lux light which had UVs and had to be so close to get any benefit that I would frequently have a grid pattern on my face. In 1998 I bought 3 Satelite SAD lights and they helped quite a bit, but they only eased my symptoms. Of course that was better than what I had had. I would use them for up to 3 hours a day! In 2005 the bulbs became in-effective so I was looking to replace them.

I found the blue light information on the web and became curious. I found a local Minneapolis dealer for the light (sorry Amazon, should-a checked here first!) and bought it in part because of the 30-day guarantee. If it didn't help, if it was like the "visor", I could take it back and still get the replacement bulbs.

In 2 days I knew that this was nothing like the lights. This thing works!! I was alert at work. I used the lights for 30 minutes in the darkness (for contrast) and I can not describe the difference! I woke up refreshed, I started sleeping through the night. In the first 2 months I had this light I lost 18 pounds because I did not have the cravings I had during the SAD episodes. From what I understand this is because my melatonin is being regulated correctly.

After the first month I also noticed that after 1/2 hour my whole upper body would get a tremendous sense of well-being, bordering on euphoria. At first this caused me to be edgy and not sleep well if I went much beyond the 1/2 hour so I backed off.

This is my first experience with light therapy and the GoLite really works for me, both to alleviate SAD and adjust my Circadian rhythms. I love the lightness and size of this unit and have had it about a year (2 winters); I've traveled with it twice and it also helped with jet lag and the time difference.

My main issue is adjusting my circadian rhythms. Waking up in the mornings was agonizing, then I would drag for at least 3 hours. And though I had no trouble sleeping once I went to bed, getting composed for sleep was a problem. I'ved used the light seasonally early morning for 15 minutes. Now, I am fully awake once I open my eyes and at night sometimes I will fall asleep like a child -- one moment awake and next thing it's morning. The Go-lite is great.

Update 1/27/15: Well it's 8 years later and this baby still works. Unfortunately I got into the habit of late night laptop use which inhibits the production of melatonin. I've ordered some orange glasses to block out the blue light and hopefully will get to sleep before 3am. In which case I can use my Blue Light again. Just using twice a couple of weeks ago made a difference.

I wanted a light that provided sufficient brightness for treatment of seasonal affective disorder (SAD) but didn't take up half of my kitchen breakfast bar. This very compact light sits on my bar unobtrusively and does its job. This is the first time I've used a light for SAD and I believe it is working (my literature search on lights and effectiveness indicated that this light should work well).

I do like the timer and intensity features - easy to start, easy to set. The light folds up to a small size that fits in a nicely-crafted carrying case. The electrical connection is universal which will allow me to take it on foreign country trips. Additionally, it truly is light enough (weight-wise!) and small enough to fit easily into my briefcase.

I bought this on impulse--after feeling lousy for several years, and noticing that winters were worse than summers. After years of treatment by a slew of doctors, I figured this might help a little bit and at least it wasn't more pills to take. Within a couple of days I was waking up, with energy, in the morning with my family, not two or three hours later--which always happened once the winter months set in. Once I was up, I was able to get things done, not just crawl back in bed under the covers and watch TV and nap most of the day. No one could believe the change in me--so drastic and so quick!

I grew up in sunny Southern California and my winter illnesses started shortly after we moved to Seattle. Since then we moved to the East Coast and it's been problematic here as well. I would have terrible months with no relief from migraines and "chronic fatigue" (what the doctors say when they can't figure out what is wrong). Lately I had noticed I would start feeling a little better in the spring and summer. Since I dealt with the SAD and did some other treatments for the migraines, this past summer I was able to put the GoLite away and had my best health in years! But as soon as the days got short, my energy fell rapidly and my family had to remind me to use the light box again. If I skip a few days because of early-morning events or a short trip, I notice it.

I start with 30 minutes a day, but once I get going on a good schedule, I can often go down to 20 minutes until I slack off the schedule for a while, and then have to start back at 30 and work myself down. I put my GoLite on my computer desk and use it in the mornings when I check email and read articles online.

I've tied a 20" piece of string on to the cord connector so I can easily pull the string towards my face to make sure I'm at the optimal distance from the box.
