Blue Light's Unique Effects On Our Health

In 1958, researchers looked at how each unique color affected organisms. 

They found out that blue light could change the circadian rhythm of algae, and this was later found out to be true with humans as well. 

Our understanding about blue light has increased and I have summarized what the literature shows to date.

Blue light is quite powerful and has the power to reset/disrupt our circadian rhythms, but if used and timed properly it may mitigate diseases like diabetes, obesity, depression, anxiety, bulimia, schizophrenia, dementia, and Parkinson's Disease. 

Some of the reasons (more explained below) is because blue light influences hormone secretion, heart rate, alertness, sleep, body temperature, and gene expression.

Why You Need To Get Out Into The Sun

In common day western society, we are consistently bombarded by artificial light.

Our workspaces are indoors, powered by fluorescent blue lights (which blue has its own negatives).

We only get sun rarely and it's either partial (such as through glass while driving to work) or too much (single sessions of long periods hanging out at the beach).

We also try to supplement for the sun by taking vitamin D hormone supplements, which is not as bioactive for creating the active form vitamin D.

Amylin's Role in Obesity and Alzheimer's

Amylin is a hormone that is co-stored and co-secreted with insulin from the pancreatic beta cells in response to nutrients (eating). 

It mediates important brain functions, including appetite inhibition, cerebrovascular structure relaxation, and neural regeneration. 

It also plays a role in regulating glucose metabolism and modulating inflammation. 

Amylin shares characteristics of satiation signals, like CCK, but also of adiposity signals, like leptin or insulin.

The Benefits of Lactate - This is Not a Waste Product!

During the 80's, LA was believed to be only a deadend waste product from anaerobic exercise.

The idea that lactate is a waste product of the metabolism and a main cause of fatigue, should no longer be considered as an indisputable truth.

This molecule, instead, can be shuttled among cells and, inside the cells, among different organelles, thanks to specific monocarboxylate carriers, and seems to be a fuel for many cells, including neurons, in conditions of oxygen shortage.

It can behave as a signal, eliciting in the cells’ responses which counteract stress, allowing at least an attempt of adaptive responses.
