  • Description Valkee 2 Silver

    • Valkee2 substitutes the mood-elevating effects of the sun, by channeling safe bright light directly to photosensitive regions of the brain through the ear canal. That's why Valkee2 increases energy, and can act as a preventative or treatment of mood swings. Valkee2 has CE Class II(a) medical device certification and is clinically tested.

      Valkee2 and its scientific program started in 2007 from the question: 'What if our brain is sensitive to light?' Today, bright light is a well-accepted and effective treatment for a variety of mood swings and especially winter blues.

      However, the mechanism of how light elevates the mood is not understood and also extra-visual light generates significant responses. Valkee2's scientific program focuses on resolving light-dependent biological processes and their therapeutic applications in mood swings and sleep disorders for light channeled via ear canal.

      Valkee2's scientific program has discovered the following:
      a) Human brain is sensitive to light, not just our eyes
      b) Valkee2 is effective for 'winter blues'
      c) Valkee2 affects body's circadian rhythm, and therefore can be an effective tool for sleep problems and circadian rhythm disturbances such as jetlag

      In the clinical trial conducted in January and February 2009, 92% of study participants suffering from winter blues -experienced total symptomatic relief with a daily 8-12 minute dose of Valkee2. Winter blues symptoms such as tiredness, anxiety, cognitive performance, reduced sleep quality and food cravings were measured with the HAMD-17 psychiatrist rating scale, and the BDI-21 patient self-rating scale.

      The University of Oulu scientists discovered that our brain, not just eyes, are sensitive to light. The research localized the OPN3 protein - known as the light-sensitive photoreceptor protein - in all of the 18 evaluated areas of the brain.

      These brain areas play key roles in mood and sleep. The OPN3 protein is part of the opsin protein family: the same that is sensitive to light in our eyes.

      In field tests, Valkee2 users reported increased energy, reduced carbohydrate cravings and a reduced need for excess sleep.
      In clinical trials, 9 of 10 people with winter blues symptoms experienced total relief within 4 weeks - a revolutionary result. Symptoms included anxiety, reduced cognitive performance and tiredness.
  • Application Valkee 2 Silver

    • Safe shopping: You can pay with invoice. Postage per Package within Switzerland: Economy 6.90 CHF, Priority 11.90 CHF.
      8-12 minutes is enough to have the needed daily light exposure and the desired health effect. With the traditional bright light, treatment time is suggested at least 30 minutes and preferably 1 hour per day, with the need to sit in close proximity to the therapy lamp.

      Bright light has shown efficacy in various mood swings from PMS to job stress, and is a widely-accepted de-facto treatment for winter blues. The brain has photosensitive areas that react differently to the lack of light. Our eyes are not the most effective route to deliver light to the brain: the ear canal, where the skull at its thinnest, is the most effective route to direct light to where it is needed.

      You can use Valkee2 wherever works best for you. Due to its small size, you can use it in the morning, during your commute or at work. It travels with you like a cell phone and mp3-player.

      Valkee2's light emitting earplugs are used for 8-12 minutes a day to get the needed light exposure in one dose. The device administers the dose simply, with one button.

      The treatment session duration is adjustable for accomplishing the best possible individual results. The best individual effect is also dependent on the time, when the light treatment is taken.

      Valkee2 is charged with a USB cable from PC/Mac or with a charger typical for mobile phones.

    • Are there benefits of using Valkee2 in summer?

      Summer does not automatically mean necessary light exposure. If we spend time inside - commuting, working, home - we do not get the needed light exposure. Office or home lighting is in almost all cases too dim (~300 lux by intensity) whereas the needed exposure is achieved at bright sunlight outside (80,000 - 150,000 lux by intensity).


      When should I use Valkee2?

      Bright light has shown efficacy across multiple mood conditions from seasonal affective disorder to job stress and PMS. Valkee2 especially relieves symptoms like tiredness, anxiety and reduced cognitive performance typical for 'winter blues'. In clinical trials, 9 of 10 participants suffering from severe symptoms experienced a total relief.


      What time of the day is it best to use Valkee2?

      70% of users have stated that positive effects are best realized during the morning and 30% have stated that they achieve the best results in the evening. Start using Valkee2 in the morning preferably 30-60 minutes after waking up. If you do not realize positive results after 3-5 days, use Valkee2 1-2 hours prior to going to bed in the evening.


      What scientific evidence do you have?

      Valkee2 has shown that the human brain is photosensitive, that bright light via the ear canal stimulates the brain, and that such stimulation is effective to treat mood conditions like anxiety, tiredness and reduced cognitive performance in 'winter blues' - all new and revolutionary results. Research was started in the University of Oulu in 2007, and has included over 20 scientists and 350 study subjects, making it one of the largest programs in bright light.

      How was Valkee2 born?

      In 2005 biologist Juuso Nissilä introduced his childhood friend Antti Aunio to the concept of in-ear bright light therapy. Since his time as a student of biology, Juuso had been conducting research to test and prove that the human brain is photosensitive, in the same way that many animals brains have been proven to be. From this exploration Nissilä developed the concept of Valkee2 and with Aunio, quickly turned this brain science into the current Valkee2 product.
