Do you have a hard time seeing? I’m talking about a hard time seeing to read (especially small print) or the detail in a project you are working on. I know I do sometimes. I’ve worn glasses since I was about 7 years old. I can have a hard time seeing to read, especially at night or when working on my computer. My Mom sews a lot and stitches large quilts. She had a hard time seeing where her stitches were. Your eyes might not be the problem. It may be the light you are using. That’s where the Nikken KenkoLight comes in.
Nikken discontinued the KenkoLight last fall, but it sold out so fast at the lower price that they decided to give it another chance and brought it back, still at the lower price. The KenkoLight sell for $100 less than what it used to, less than what I paid as a distributor for mine.
Why did Nikken create the KenkoLight?
Nikken has provided earth energy (magnets), water, air, life energy (nutritional supplements), and sun energy (far-infrared) for a long time.
There are two components to the energy that we receive from the sun. One is heat, which we get from Nikken’s far-infrared technology. The component we didn’t have until now was light, especially full-spectrum light.
The KenkoLight is a full-spectrum lamp, effectively bringing sunlight inside so that we can benefit from it while we are trapped indoors. There has been a lot of research that shows the benefits of natural sunlight, and this LED lamp is a great way to receive these benefits when you cannot actually get outside.
Why Do We Need Sunlight?
Back in the day, we used to spend a lot more time outside. We were exposed to the earth’s magnetic field, fresh air, far-infrared energy from the sun, and natural sunlight. We don’t get that as often as we should anymore.
From The Effect of Sunlight and Full-Spectrum Light on Health, Wellness & Performance (and page 2) by Dr. Jacob Liberman
…when we experimentally place plants, animals, or humans in a darkened environment and notice that their life force gradually diminishes…
When the same experiment is repeated using artificial lighting, such as cool-white fluorescent tubes, the natural growth pattern of both plants and animals is significantly affected, reducing lifespan, and at times manifesting as physical abnormality. In humans, there is a decrease in attention, learning ability, performance, and productivity, an increase in stress, irritability, errors, and fatigue, and a major increase in cavities. However, when children are placed in classrooms that incorporate natural daylight, learning ability, test scores, and productivity significantly improve. Natural daylight in retail locations boosts sales by 40%.
Why Get a KenkoLight?
You can read about all of the health benefits of the KenkoLight in the document that I referred to above. I’m fortunate enough to live where there is plenty of sun. I also get to work from home and have my desk next to a window where I get plenty of morning sunlight. I don’t need the KenkoLight for all of its health benefits, so why would I want to get one?
Because I can see so much better with it when the sun isn’t shining. It lights up my desk in the morning and night with a white light that is easy on the eyes and makes everything clear. I haven’t found any other light that can do that, except the sun itself. It works great for anyone stuck in an office, or worse, a cubicle, without natural sunlight. It is easy on the eyes unlike incandescent and fluorescent lights.
My wife used my lamp once while working on a craft project and she was hooked. I had to get her one too. I think it would work equally well for any artist, interior decorator, or person who enjoys crafts – anyone who needs to be able to see how different colors go together and look good.

Need more information? You can find the brochure and the quick reference sheet (QRS) on Nikken’s KenkoLight page.
Note: I have been told that the USB port will not charge any Apple devices. It may be that iPhones and such require a higher voltage that what the KenkoLight II makes available to enable the recharging function on the phone.
