geAn estimated 50-70 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep issues, according to the National Institute of Health. In honor of National Sleep Awareness Week, GE Lighting has developed a light bulb to help promote the body’s natural sleep cycle; GE Align lighting is available on Amazon.com.

GE Align LED lighting technology is engineered to help promote the body’s natural sleep cycles by controlling spectral emission.

By reducing the amount of blue light emitted, the GE Align PM setting doesn’t impede the body’s production of melatonin and promotes its natural sleep cycle. Consumers should use this extra-warm light for about 30 minutes before bedtime, according to GE.

Conversely, the GE Align AM setting puts off a concentrated bluish-white light that suppresses melatonin production. Simply using this light 30 minutes after waking in the morning promotes the natural wake cycle, according to GE.

These familiar A-line-shaped lamps fit most common luminaires, ideally suited to bedside, bathroom vanity and kitchen lighting.
