    Delighted to hear Dr. Hansler on this show, bringing his vitally important health information to this audience.

    Most helpful to my sleep and well-being are the Glasses (I find the fitovers more comfortable) and the indispensable little Nightlight.

    The Glasses cut out blue light, and this gets my melatonin production started 2-3 hours before actually going to bed.
    And the Nightlight prevents any interruption of melatonin during a nighttime trip to the bathroom.

    This great scientist is devoting his talent and expertise late in life to the betterment of mankind.
