Pharmacy Apotek Hjärtat Simulates Natural Light During Cold Months

 - Mar 7, 2018
Swedish pharmacy Apotek Hjärtat concluded that a great part of the population suffers from the lack of Vitamin D, which manifests itself with symptoms of exhaustion or even depression during winter months, so the institution decided to provide light therapy with a display window.

The project utilizes fluorescent lamps that emulate the color, temperature and brightness that is characteristic of natural daylight. Passersby can halt and marvel at the health-boosting window display while they receive their daily dose of weariness-reducing light therapy.

The project by Apotek Hjärtat does not only supply the Swedish population with an accessible source of Vitamin D, however; through its light therapy initiative, the pharmacy also raises awareness and promotes mindful healthy habits.
