Prevent and eliminate jet lag with the Litebook Elite
Cure jet lag in hours - not days
Jet lag can be a major problem when travelling abroad – whether you're going on holiday or for work. It takes your body one day per time zone to adjust. Putting that in perspective, if you're going on holiday to California for a week, you'll still be suffering from jet lag by the time you leave. Research from NASA has shown that with light therapy you can shift six time zones in just one day. Why spend hundreds, if not thousands of pounds on a holiday without giving yourself the chance to enjoy it properly?
Using the Litebook Elite, you can speed up your body's readjustment to a new zone in a matter of hours - without the use of any form of drugs. The Litebook is a compact light that fits into your hand and has a built-in rechargeable battery, and comes supplied with four international power adapters. The Litebook also has a dedicated Jet Lag Calculator - showing you when to use it to cure jet lag as soon as the same day that you arrive.
Jet lag, or dysrhythmia, occurs after east-west air travel when your body clock isn't synchronized with your new time zone. It can disrupt more than 50 physiological and psychological rhythms. Unfortunately it also gets worse with age – particularly after age 50. Unaided, it takes your body 1 day per time zone to readjust. It may take 2 to 3 weeks to completely realign your rhythms. Until recently, jet lag was dismissed as merely an unpleasant side effect of air travel. New research suggests that it may also cause memory loss, shrinkage of parts of the brain and negative side effects on blood pressure. The good news is: it can now virtually eliminated.
|“I am a 40 year old fit and healthy female executive who has a demanding work schedule and travels a lot. I am able to switch to a new time zone immediately when I travel to different countries, by following the timetable and using Litebook at the time specified in the jet lag timetable chart. I am now a firm believer in light therapy and a devoted supporter of Litebook”|

Clinical research conducted at NASA and elsewhere demonstrates that with a properly timed exposure to bright light in specific wavelengths, and a similarly timed avoidance of light, it is possible to safely and efficiently shift our body clock up to 6 time zones in 1 day, and up to 12 time zones in 2 days. With proper use of The Litebook® and by following the personalized schedule determined by Litebook’s Jet Lag Calculator, your energy, mood, concentration, performance and sleep patterns can all be reset to your new time zone in as little as 60 minutes.
What is special about the Litebook?
Traditionally, light therapy meant being sat in front of a large lightbox (about the size of a regular mirror) and looking directly into it for an hour. While effective, it was awkward, boring and time consuming. Thankfully, the Litebook Elite is revolutionising light therapy and making it quick and incredibly easy.
The Litebook Elite uses white light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to produce its light. Regular lamps have used flourscent bulbs, with are bulky, expensive to run, and emit harmful UV rays. The white LEDs in the Litebook mean it is much smaller than conventional lamps (just 2% of the size), and because the peak wavelengths of its light replicate those of sunlight exactly, usage time is as little as 15 minutes.
Fits into your hand, and your life
The Litebook's size and built-in rechargebale battery means it can be used anywhere; on a train, aeroplane, or simply on a desk or table at home or work. Unlike regular lamps, you do not have to look directly into it, you simply have it facing you at an angle. This leaves you free to get on with other things such as eating breakfast, applying make-up or reading a newspaper. It has never been so easy to get the light you need into your routine.
How to use the Litebook:
TRAVELING EAST: Seek bright light in the morning (destination time).
TRAVELING WEST: Seek bright light in the evening (destination time).
TYPICAL EXPOSURE TIME: Day of travel - 30 to 60 minutes. Second day - 15 to 30 minutes.
LIGHT AVOIDANCE: Avoid bright light (sunlight) at specific times. This is just AS IMPORTANT as seeking bright light at specific times. If you receive exposure to bright light at the wrong time, you WILL make your jet lag worse – your body clock could end up Tokyo time instead of Paris time! It is not critical to avoid interior light, such as in a hotel room, office, or restaurant -- although many frequent travelers report best results when they avoid any source of light during specified times.
Use The Litebook's Jet Lag Calculator to determine your specific usage times. Simply enter your normal waking time (e.g. 7 a.m.), Date of Departure, Departure City and Arrival City, and the Calculator will determine a personalized schedule for your trip, providing you with a window of time to Seek Light and another window of time to Avoid Light. You can find the calculator in our extensive support section or by clicking here.
