Why is am sun the most important

    Just wondering the science behind why am sun is more important than mid day or evening. Do you not get about the same frequencies of light except uvb which you get mid day?

    Sunlight frequencies are not balanced the same throughout the day, and biological processes follows a circadian rhythm. Meaning that your body does other things in the morning then it does around noon or in the evening. The AM frequencies are crucial for proper circadian rhythm of every cell in your body.

    These examples of performers dying prematurely prove another thing: money doesn't buy health. Without the right knowledge they're helpless.

    Would love to see them do sunrise shows where everything is built around the moment when the sun breaks the horizon. Instead of partying through the night, people need to party through the morning. No need for lights, no need for stimulants, the sun delivers it all.

    Thanks for the replies Jack. I guess i was confused about why the am sun has certain benefits over midday sun.

    The colour temperature of AM sun is 1600k and sunset is 16,000k. Does that mean sunset contains more blue frequencies compared with AM sun?

    Wouldnt the color temperature of 16,000Kelvin be around midday? The sun gets red as it sets.

    It's about 6,500K around midday. I thought first the colour temperature drops back down after midday but that is incorrect. The colour temperature keeps increasing throughout the day until sunset. From 1600k to 16,000k at sunset. The colour temperature begins dropping after sunset. The frequencies of the sun changes throughout the day to help our eye clock know what time it is. The sun is like a source of wireless data and information to us.

    I think you're referencing this slide right? It's a bit confusing but the colour temperature at the bottom is not in line with the picture above it. During noon, when the sky is most blue, the temperature is 16,000k. But during both sunset and sunrise it will be nearer to 1800k.

    Thank you Walter for pointing that out but at the same time I was thinking it was similar sunrise and sunset.

    Not too sure but Jack did mention once on Facebook that the colour temperature of sunset is 16,000k. I maybe wrong though. I do apologize if any of that information is incorrect.

    "So in the AM sunrise the color temperature of light is only 1800 Kelvin, at 10 AM it is 4000 K, at solar noon it is 5500 K, at high noon (12-1:30PM) it rises to 12,000 K, and at dusk it is 16,000K. It builds as the day goes on."


    "The photons come in all colors or frequencies because the sun’s light varies by location altitude and time of day. For example, the AM sunrise color temperature is 1800K while the sunset is 16,000K"


    "realize at sunrise we're at 1600K and 1 hr prior to sunset 16,000 K. Then in 1 hour your at zero K."

    Someone asked Dr Jack Kruse on the Vermont 2017 video on the comments section: "Why are sunsets so important to a mitochindriac?"

    Dr Jack Kruse replied:
    "Because the color temperature of PM light rises and this is the stimulus to the melanopsin system and the activation of melatonin after its aromatic rings were excited by AM IRA and UVA light. This is also a big leptin and amylin trigger too for the same reasons."

    I have very disturbed sleep issues which I believe are deuterium related. I often lie awake for hours each night. It's the northern European summer where I am now (Ireland) which means it's bright at 4am. Getting up at this time every morning would seem totally counterproductive formme trying to get some quality sleep/rest (as often I'd only be falling back to sleep around this time after being awake for hours), however staying in bed means I miss the am sunlight. Usual wake up time would be 8.30am.
    Wonder could anyone comment on this?

    When people talk about deuterium and sleep, I think it could be a case of either too much deuterium, or not enough deuterium. Not enough deuterium sounds a bit counter intuitive but you deplete deuterium during REM sleep, which implies to me that a certain amount may be necessary to enter REM sleep, and tribes who spend months of the year struggling to find enough often deuterium loaded foods, can have less than optimal amounts of sleep, even at the equator. So I've wondered if (for example) potentially, a long term strict keto diet could, in terms of deuterium, be a sleep disrupting equivalent. If someone has too much deuterium, or its in the wrong place, then being anal about getting circadian rhythm on track will help. The enterocytes of the gut turning over in line with their circadian rhythm helps stop excessive deuterium accumulation, get the day-night circadian cycle firm and there's a better chance of melatonin doing its thing and someone going through the sleep cycles, making use of REM to deplete deuterium etc.

    Around summer and winter solstices are the most difficult times in terms of sleep for me, but for different reasons. Even if you are blue blocking/ using iris software, your post is timed as being posted at 9.37 - that is just after sunset for me, and with such a short night, its a question of getting offline much earlier, see the sunset and go to bed. If I'm tired earlier its be outside for a while to experience some of the transitioning frequencies, and go a bit earlier if necessary while sleep pressure is strong. If you are awake at 4 a.m. you could try getting outside and seeing the sunrise and experiencing some of the morning transition frequencies for a few minutes, and then going back to bed. If I have to do this, I then leave the curtain and preferably the window open, to let the natural light hit my eyes, even if its through closed lids. :)

    Thanks for the reply Sue. Interesting what you say about a lack of Deuterium affecting sleep, potentially.
    Your idea of getting up for the am light at 4am and going back to bed may be an option, but that would only be after 4-5 hours of very broken sleep at best. I literally feel like a zombie the next day unless I at least stay in bed until at least 8-9am, which I know means I miss all the am sun. Work at the moment allows me to be outside almost all day after so I think that might be a worthy trade off for now, and hopefully I will see some circadian rebalance happening soon.

    Hi Walter,
    Does AM stand for the sun light before 12 or stand for sun light at 12 o'clock?
  19. Lahelada

    Am stands for sunrise and beyond. The next big change is when UVA kicks in, then UVB. Times of that vary according to latitude and season.

    This question gets asked a lot, so I thought I would share my 2 cents.

    I really believe light's interaction with water is the key in driving life. Of course the magnetism is critically important as well as the force that drives energy flow. Gerald Pollock's work on the EZ makes understanding AM sunlight critical:

    1. Red light turns water into a battery (EZ) that powers life
    2. Your cells are loaded with water that needs the charge of this red light
    3. Once the EZ is built, it's refraction shifts to 270 nm light which is UV
    4. UVA arrives later in the morning
    5. The combination of UVA and IRA light works a magical dance to create UVC laser light within our blood plasma through a nuclear reaction we learned about in Vermont 2018
    6. That UVC light generated from this AM stimulus is what programs the aromatic amino acids to build dopamine, serotonin, melatonin and probably many more chemicals that control the timing mechanism (circadian rhythm) in our body

    So you can see how wise nature is in preparing our body to use the solar stimulus to build wellness. Red light from AM sunlight is step 1 in preparing us for optimal each and everyday. UVA is the next critical transition. Of course the other key is the evening when color temperature peaks while UVA goes away, and melanopsin is programmed to begin melatonin secretion after 4 hours of darkness when color temperature falls off a cliff post-sunset.

    That whole rhythm all begins with the AM sunlight stimulus. You cannot jump to step 3 or 4 or 5 when you've missed step 1.
