Chronobiology is how clock systems impact us from a physiological and biological standpoint. It's how we regulate those time pieces within our body to create that harmonious environment, the whole orchestra playing, and you do that by managing your light hygiene in line with how our circadian clock system has evolved which is under natural sunlight and dark cycles. - Andy Mant

Andy Mant, the founder and CEO of BON CHARGE, joins Josh Trent on the Wellness + Wisdom podcast to reveal new discoveries about how blue light affects our physical health and sleep, and why we need to use red light therapy to recover from the damage caused by blue light.
Do you know that blue light is absorbed not only through the eyes but also through the skin?
In this episode, you will learn how to avoid and prevent the negative effects of blue light, how to restore your health using red light, and why you should take sun breaks throughout the day.
Introduce the power of red light therapy into your home wellness routine and experience the incredible benefits.
All BON CHARGE's panels incorporate red light at 660nm and near-infrared light at 850nm, which are the two most studied frequencies of light for red light therapy.
Red light delivered at 660nm is readily absorbed by the surface tissues and cells. Near-infrared light at 850nm, which is invisible to the human eye, penetrates into deeper tissues and muscles.
"Blue light isn't a digital problem. It's an LED problem. If you've got lights around you that's in any environment you're in that isn't the sun, that's classified junk light which will be high in blue and will disrupt your circadian biology." - Andy Mant
"Melanopsin which is the blue light photoreceptor thought to only be present in the eyes is actually present in people's skin. Blue light hitting your skin will impact your circadian rhythm regardless of whether you're wearing blue light glasses or not." - Andy Mant
"There's a lot of blue light and artificial light, but there's not a lot of red light. So you need to start balancing the light in your environment. So wearing the glasses alone isn't going to be enough because it's going to filter blue down but it's not bringing the other colors up. We need to get all the different colors of light in our environment so we can mimic sunlight.
Andy Mant is the founder and CEO of BON CHARGE, a company specializing in evidence-based products that help your sleep, wellbeing, and recovery.
Andy started BON CHARGE after becoming dissatisfied with the quality and standards of blue light-blocking glasses available and so set about to design lenses that match the evidence in the academic literature. Andy was born in the UK and moved to Australia in 2011.
After moving and about 2 years after arriving Andy’s gained a lot of weight and became chronically fatigued and lacked energy. Traditional dietary approaches only worked to a certain degree and after stumbling across how biohacking could help his health.
Andy forged a passion and niche understanding of all thing’s biohacking. Today Andy is a leading figure in biohacking to improve health, sleep, and wellbeing.
