Research shows light therapy may treat Alzheimer’s disease

A flicker of hope comes from scientific studies

We all have gamma rhythm in our brains. A healthy brain has a gamma frequency of 40Hz. For people with cognitive decline — this rhythm is deviated.
Alzheimer’s disease destroys neurons and their connections in parts of the brain involved in memory. It’s caused in part by abnormal levels of naturally occurring plaques that collect between neurons and disrupt cell function.
But there is hope. Neuroscientists at the leading brain health research institutes seeking to end Alzheimer’s disease focused research on light therapy — discovering that flickering light shone into the eye induced healthy gamma oscillation in the brain. Their work shows that pulsating light can stimulate the brain to function at a healthy rhythm. These studies are the first scientific findings offering noninvasive treatment for Alzheimer’s.

FEATURED NEWS —

Backed By Science

FACT: Healthy brains feature brain waves or rhythms that oscillate at roughly 40Hz. These gamma frequencies are associated with higher-order cognitive function.

FACT: A buildup of amyloid plaque inhibits brain waves and disrupts healthy brain rhythm.

FACT: Researchers studied the impact of light therapy—discovering that a 40Hz flickering light shined into the eye mimicked and induced healthy gamma rhythm in the brain.

FACT: 40Hz visual stimulation, given one hour a day for 6 weeks, had dramatic positive effects on brain function leading to 40-50% reduction in amyloid plaque in the hippocampus.

TECHNOLOGY

Fast-tracking scientific research for safe home use

  • The lights are made of multiple LED lights on a printed circuit board. LED lights are 90% more efficient than incandescent bulbs. The LED lights do not produce heat or burn out.
  • Pulsing LED lights are safe and noninvasive, creating no discomfort for users.* Daily exposure can complement regular routines including reading, watching TV or meal prep.
  • Beacon40 lights pulsate at 40Hz, which is known to be the most effective frequency to stimulate healthy gamma waves in the brain. Brain waves in this frequency are associated with working memory, attention and coordination.
  • Multiple light kits deliver synchronized gamma frequencies by pairing the base lamp with each satellite via RFID. Simply press and hold the pairing button on the base lamp to pair up to 15 lights.
  • Beacon40 lights are IoT smart home enabled. Connect the lights to your smart home hub for wifi connectivity and voice control features.

*People with photosensitivity should not use BEACON40®. Always consult your doctor when supplementing your wellness routine.
