Blue light blocker glasses & True Mtrx “Calm” supplement – significantly improves production of melatonin & quality of sleep
Are you having a difficult time with your sleep? Do you suffer from insomnia, restless sleep and fatigue? Do you wonder why you wake up tired? We understand–MHIs core team and founders suffered from the same issues years..UNTIL NOW. But first, its important to understand WHY this happens?
Here Are The Simple Scientific Reasons Why This Is Happening To You, And The Solution On How To Fix It:
Blue light from electronics like your TV, smart phone, computer, and the like, tricks your brain into thinking it is daytime! This inhibits both the production AND the release of your main “sleeping hormone”– Melatonin. IN ADDITION, every time the blue light hits your eyes it disrupts everything from your synaptic pathways, dopaminergic pathways, and messes up your optic never in your eye.
This results in not only reducing your ability to fall asleep, but more importantly, significantly hindering the quality of your RESTORATIVE sleep, specifically you deep sleep & REM sleep.
Not getting enough quality sleep has been shown to cause many adverse health effects including (but not limited to) weight gain, depression, anxiety, anhedonia, substance abuse, and an increased risk or severity of long-term diseases or conditions, such as high blood pressure and heart disease.
Regarding weight loss and sleep, a study showed that controlled subjects who, on average, only got 5 hours of sleep vs. a group who got 8 hours of sleep, after an 8-week study, the subjects who got 8 hours of sleep, lost 55% more body fat than when they slept 5 hours a day. Another study showed that getting 7-8 hours of sleep vs. 6 hours led to a 26% reduction in visceral fat.
The research shows it is also bad for our eyes. Studies have linked blue light to blurry vision, eyestrain, dry eyes, macular degeneration, and cataracts.

Types Of Blue Light Blocking Glasses
Night Time Glasses
Blocks 100% of green & blue light spectrum (400nm and 550nm)
Blocks 100% blue light spectrum (400-455nm)
Day Time Glasses
Blocks 30% of blue light spectrum (400nm-495nm)
The results across the board are consistent with showing that exposure to blue light wavelengths of light had a greater impact on suppressing melatonin (by up to 81% in one study), both in terms of percentage & duration of suppression. Below is the study
In addition to the glasses, we recommend switching out ALL your home light bulbs to these melotonin friendly bulbs. These light bulbs help prevent disruption to our natural diurnal wake and sleep cycles. These bulbs will further improve your serotonin and melatonin secretion via circadian and diurnal rhythm optimization.
Circadian rhythms are physical, mental, and behavioral changes that follow a 24-hour cycle. Diurnal rhythm is a biological rhythm synchronized with the day/night cycle.
Based on the research and the legitimacy of the lenses efficacy in reducing blue/green light exposure, our preferred brands are “Swanwick” or “Blublox.”
Although we prefer the Swanwick brand b/c they have a “softer” and are slightly lighter on the eyes, Blublox has more variety of styles and have the yellow lens hybrids which we recommend to use when going out at night.
Nevertheless, for OPTIMAL results, we are most concerned about wearing the orange nighttime lenses in combination with swapping out your light bulbs to the yellow (blue-blocking) light bulbs due to the significant increase and surge in melatonin production you will get by wearing the glasses once twilight hits.
