Andy Mant is the Founder and CEO of BluBlox, a company who produces high-quality blue light blocking glasses. Andy and Boomer discuss the role of melanopsin, how to regulate blue light, and the role of circadian rhythms for performance.
"When the sun rises in the morning and as it actually sets in the evening, the intensity of light changes. During first sort of sunrise periods, you're going to have a very low lux light. It is probably about sort of 1800 Kelvin on the sunrise and the sunset. It's actually not really that difficult to look at and it also contains a lot yet less frequencies of invisible light like UV."

Who is Andy Mant?
Andy Mant is the founder and CEO of BLUblox, a company specializing in evidence-based advanced light filtering eyewear. Andy started BLUblox after becoming dissatisfied with the quality and standards of blue light blocking glasses available and so set about to design lenses that match the evidence in the academic literature. Andy was born in the UK and moved to Australia in 2011. After moving and about 2 years after arriving Andy’s gained a lot of weight and become chronically fatigued and lacked energy. Traditional dietary approaches only worked to a certain degree and after stumbling across light and health Andy forged a passion and niche understanding of all things light related to health. Today Andy is a leading figure in managing light to improve health and wellbeing.
Key Highlights on Optimizing Light
One of my favorite tools for cognitive enhancement, especially after long plan rides, is Blue Cannatine. The delivery mechanism is unique (buccle troche). It is especially effective for me on improving short-term memory, focus, and verbal fluency. It’s the closest thing that I found to NZT and I think you guys should try it out.

I’ve been fascinated by blood flow restriction training for a very long time. And the guys at Bstrong did some really cool innovations with their technology. I use it just about every day, high reps, low number of sets, a few exercises. And in 20 minutes I have a fantastic workout, which I know is triggering an anabolic response and who doesn’t like that. So if you want to get your Bstrong blood flow restriction device, head on over to bstrong.training and enter the code BOOMER for 10% off.View Company
