Minimizing the effect of jet lag and optimizing performance using light therapy — this week’s guest is an expert.
Toine Schoutens develops lighting technology, lamps and special wearable visors, and applies them to enhance the performance of world-class swimmers, soccer players, rowers, gymnasts and many others. If you think about how much time many indoor athletes spend out of the sun and/or travelling you¹ll realize how hugely important it is to improve on circadian rhythms, Vitamin D synthesis and coping with jet lag.
