Seasonal Affective Disorders (SAD) Bioptron to the Rescue
BIOPTRON is clinically tested and certified to fight and alleviate the symptoms of seasonal affective disorder (SAD).
During autumn and winter our bodies naturally slow down. Due to a combination of decreased sunlight and physical activity the body doesn’t produce enough serotonin, the hormone that makes us feel happy, or dopamine, which helps us to feel motivated. We can’t help but feel lethargic, stressed out and just overall less motivated than we want to be. These symptoms, commonly known as the winter blues, are caused by a disruption of our natural biological clock and rhythm.
BIOPTRON Light Therapy allows you to safely get the amount of light you need to fight winter blues and recharge your batteries with positive energy, without the harmful UV rays.

SAD is a type of depression that is associated with some seasons, typically starting in the late autumn and early winter.
SAD is characterized by a combination of symptoms such as:
- Chronic fatigue
- Lowered motivation
- Anhedonia (inability to feel/perceive happiness)
- Increased need of sleep
- Changes in appetite or weight
- Loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed
- Feeling sluggish or agitated
- Difficulty to be focused and concentrated
- Social withdrawal
The exact cause of SAD is unknown, but researchers have found some biological clues related to a disruption of our circadian rhythms. Circadian rhythms are metabolic, physical, mental and behavioural changes that follow a daily cycle. One of the most known is the sleep-wake cycle. Scientists believe that a shortage of light may have a negative effect on our sleep rhythms, because it deregulates the synthesis of key neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and melatonin, as well as the production of Vitamin D.
BIOPTRON Hyperlight Therapy provides safe and needed dose of daily exposure to bright light. BIOPTRON has the properties of natural light: it increases the production of serotonin and recharges your batteries with positive energy.
