Your body produces a chemical called melatonin. Melatonin is important to us as it regulates our sleep cycle and helps us fall asleep. Normally, you produce more melatonin at night because sunlight suppresses its production during the day.
The trouble is, in this electronic world, we are surrounded by a multitude of light sources that mimic sunlight. In particular, modern lightbulbs and computer displays throw out enough blue light to fool our bodies into thinking that it`s daytime; even if it`s three o`clock in the morning. If you use a computer late at night, nighttime production of melatonin can be suppressed and you may find your sleep quality suffers.
Never fear. Candlelight is here to help. By careful application of computer magic, Candlelight turns down the blue light of your Mac`s display and leaves it with the warm amber glow of sunset, of candlelight.
Now, when using your computer after sundown, turn on Candlelight and let your body know it`s nighttime.
