BIOPTRON ® HPL QUANTUM HYPERLIGHT FOR S.A.D.

Clinically proven and certified for the medical treatment of Seasonal Affective Disorder.

SAD is a type of depression that is associated with some seasons, typically starting in the late autumn and early winter.


SAD is characterized by a combination of symptoms such as:

  • Chronic fatigue

  • Lowered motivation

  • Anhedonia (inability to feel/perceive happiness)

  • Increased need of sleep

  • Changes in appetite or weight

  • Loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed

  • Feeling sluggish or agitated

  • Difficulty to be focused and concentrated

  • Social withdrawal

The exact cause of SAD is unknown, but researchers have found some biological clues related to a disruption of our circadian rhythms. Circadian rhythms are metabolic, physical, mental and behavioural changes that follow a daily cycle. One of the most known is the sleep-wake cycle.  Scientists believe that a shortage of light may have a negative effect on our sleep rhythms, because it deregulates the synthesis of key neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and melatonin, as well as the production of Vitamin D.

HPL Therapy provides safe and needed dose of daily exposure to bright light.

HPL has the properties of natural light: it increases the production of serotonin and recharges your batteries with positive energy.
