How to Use a Vitamin D Light Box

The Sperti Vitamin D Light Box is the only FDA recognized vitamin D lamp on the market. It is really easy to use and it only takes 5 minutes a day to raise your vitamin D levels!

It is important to read the instruction booklet before starting use of your Vitamin D Light Box. Here is a brief overview on how to use it:

  • Once the unit is plugged into a working outlet, you simply need to set the timer and flip the on/off switch in order to turn the light on.
  • For the first couple weeks, you’ll want to use the light for about 2-3 minutes a session – 4 sessions a week (every other day).
  • After your body has had time to adjust to the light, you can gradually start using it for longer until you get up to using it for the full 5 minutes each session.
  • It is best to rotate the exposure site every week. Example: Week one you can target the light on your stomach. Week 2 you can target the light on your back. Week 3 you can target the light on your legs.

When you follow the instructions, it can take a few months to see a major change in your vitamin D levels. It is best to obtain a gradual rise in your levels in order to avoid any skin irritation. However, a slight pinking of the skin is perfectly normal and just means that the light is working.
