Frequently asked questions about True Light full spectrum lamps

Why is the exact colour nuance of daylight so important?

The colour spectrum of regular fluorescent tube light contains insufficient red, indigo, violet and UV. Red is good for blood, production of red blood cells, breathing and oxygen intake, metabolism and fertility. Indigo stimulates the healing of wounds, stimulates the parathyroid and sooths the thyroid. Violet creates a balance between calcium and phosphor and enhances circulation of the lymphatic system, activity of the glands, production of white blood cells, iron and iodine. UV-light stimulates by converting different pro-vitamins the production of vitamin D and takes care of the right amount of calcium.


Isn’t  UV-radiation dangerous?

There are many misunderstandings concerning this topic. There are three types of UV-lights: UV-A, -B and –C. Only UV-C is harmful. Almost all UV-C is filtered out in the ozone layer. On hot summer days, prolonged exposure to the sun is dangerous, due to the thin ozone layer (light intensity up to 100.000 lux). For True Light this is not a problem. These lamps have  an average, steady light intensity.

UV-A and UV-B aren’t harmful, provided they occur in biological quantities (like in sunlight). In those circumstances they even are extremely beneficial.


Does True Light give you a tan?

No. The UVA- and UVB-radiation is very small and biologically dosed.
