In this episode, we’re excited to be joined by Andy Mant, the founder of BLUblox — an Australian-based blue light blocking glasses company that is known to have the world’s most advanced blue light glasses!
What we love about Andy’s story is that his company was built from a personal need. He was suffering from terrible sleep, felt lethargic all the time, and was in the worst physical shape of his life. When he discovered that blue light emitted from our screens could be the cause of many of the issues he was facing, he set out to find the perfect blue light blocking glasses — but, they just weren’t out there. They weren’t actually blocking the correct frequencies. So the only solution, of course, was to create his own product! Now his company, BLUblox, is touting lenses that are actually backed by science and have years of research to show for it.
We really hope you all tune in to learn more about this incredible technology and Andy’s journey! We really get into the benefits of blocking out blue light, how different kinds of light impact us both short term and long term, some of the common light sensitivity issues many people face (but might not even know it), how light impacts our circadian rhythm, and the profound effect that blocking blue light throughout our day can have on our health.
