As we get older, we all begin to truly understand the value of a great night’s sleep...
...sleep is when your body heals and restores itself
...it’s when your brain clears out all the junk that builds up over a long day of thinking
...it’s when many of the hormones in your body reset and rest
Disrupted circadian rhythms (also known as sleep-wake cycle disorders) have been shown to promote a chronic state of low-grade inflammation which helps explain its link to most every degenerative disease afflicting the modern world.
Sleep disorders cause not just obesity, diabetes, and heart disease, but also cancer, psychiatric disorders, intestinal problems, and neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s.
Sleep Disturbances Compared To Other Health Risk Factors
Take a look at this graph from a double-blind study showing that the risk of developing diabetes associated with sleep disturbances is comparable to that of traditional risk factors - meaning that sleep disturbances should be considered in clinical guidelines for type 2 diabetes screening.

Exposure To Room Light Before Bedtime Suppresses Melatonin
Simple exposure to normal room lighting before bed reduces melatonin production by an average of 71%, and suppression is maintained through the night if the lights are kept on.19
Even just having the room light on before bed delays the start of melatonin production by 1.5 hours, if it starts at all.19

Harvard Medical School Researchers State That Blue-Blocking Glasses May Not Be Doing Their Due Diligence
In yet another nine-day study at the Intensive Physiological Monitoring unit at Brigham Women’s Hospital, 52 healthy volunteers were isolated from all sources of light and time, including windows, clocks, internet, television, and anything else that could indicate the time of the day. Green light was found to be equally effective as blue light in affecting circadian rhythms.
They stated:“Finally, blocking short-wavelength light with blue-blocking goggles may not always be effective in preventing undesired circadian responses based on our finding that [green] light is able to induce robust phase shift responses.” 36

Friends of mine that had been dealing with nagging sleep issues for YEARS suddenly felt awake after wearing our glasses.
That’s when I knew I had to do whatever it takes to get SafetyBlue™ into the hands of as many people as I could...
This product could really give people their energy back...to help people get the sleep they desperately need.
Not only do people report getting to sleep faster and getting better sleep on blue blockers, but deep restful sleep each night is just about THE BEST thing you can do for your body and your long term health.
Get deeper, faster, better sleep at night...
Without waking up groggy or full of brain fog like you get with so many sleep products...
My husband and I want people to hear my name, and see my face to know that I stand behind every single SafetyBlue™ product.
I put on my Sleep Saviors and waited to see what would happen...I didn’t have to wait very long...In fact, within 15 minutes, I felt a noticeable tired sensation... That feeling you get when you’re about to nod off in front of a boring movie...And then I slept deeply and woke up after a fully restful 8 hours.
I tend to use these if I find myself still working on the computer later on in the evening and they are lovely to wear. My eyes have always been very sensitive to computer screens. I spend way too long on the computer so I am keen to take care of my eyes now and feel these may help besides helping me go into sleep mode when I need it.
Didn't know for sure if I would like these, but they really are comfortable, and better at blocking light from coming in through the sides than any other blue blockers I've owned. And I also didn't think using red blue blockers would be much different than the orange blue blockers I've been using. They are better on that count as well! The gaskets around the frame seem unsteady but a gentle push and they stay on okay. They are so comfortable I fall asleep with them on and wake up with them still on, no wrinkles, creases or discomfort. All around good design and the best of 4 different blue blockers I've owned.

I find these glasses extremely relaxing. Putting them on an hour or two before I go to bed makes me feel like I have taken a heavy sedative and I fall asleep very fast! Obviously my body starts making the appropriate sleep hormone to do this. These glasses are so comfortable to wear and if I am watching something on the television before I sleep, I make sure I put them on. A great product!
