Greetings, SuperFriends! Today we are joined by Andy Mant. Andy is the founder and CEO of BluBlox, a company that specializes in evidence-based advanced light-filtering eyewear. Andy started Blublox not only after becoming dissatisfied with the quality and standards of other blue-light-blocking products out there, but also because he had gained a ton of weight and had all kinds of issues with chronic fatigue and lacking in energy. When traditional diet and exercise didn't work for him, he turned towards the research himself, and became a biohacker. So, today he is a leading figure in understanding how all forms of light, not just the light from our screens, can affect our health and well-being. He and his team have developed all different kinds of products, and Andy even gave us an insight into some of the crazy products that they are in the process of developing. I wanted to have Andy on the show not just to talk about light blocking glasses, but because I wanted to go much deeper into the research around light as a whole. In the episode, we expanded on the blue light from our screens, and we discovered that some products or apps are better than others. We also talked about sunlight, what times of day you need to be exposed to it, how to know if you are getting enough sunlight in your life, and many more things around the all-important thing we all do in our daily lives, sleep. I really enjoyed this episode, and I'm sure you will enjoy it as well! -Jonathan Levi
Today's episode is with Andy Mant, Founder of BLUblox. Many of you know that I religiously follow everything Jack Kruse has to say because it's had a tremendous effect on my healing; meaning that I've moved to nature, gotten back into the rhythm, and I've really reduced, if not almost totally gotten rid of all of the blue light in my life, as well as any other light pollution and on native EMFs.
I've kind of biohacked and transformed my hormones. It's transformed my circadian rhythm, which controls the hormones. Doing this has healed so much inside my body so I'm excited to have Andy on the show to explain further about his glasses that I wear, which are called BLUblox.
In our conversation, Andy shares so much information on blue light, the different colors of the lenses and what they do, as well as how to hack our surroundings. He even educated me on which glasses are best for the different times of the day, which I wasn’t fully aware of yet. Andy and his company are so accommodating and passionate about people truly being protected– it’s just another reason I love his company.
