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?

    Watch the Vermont 2017 and 2018 talks. Full explanation.

    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."
