INTRODUCTION

Thanks for your interest in joining the Lumity x GlycanAge biological age testing study! Your participation in this research study is voluntary. Before you decide, please read this form carefully and ask Lumity Client Care Executives or your doctor if you have any questions. You may save and/or print this information, and a copy will be emailed to you when you register for the study.


BACKGROUND

You are being asked to participate in the study because of your interest in Lumity’s Morning & Night supplements and understanding your biological age through GlycanAge’s testing kits. Originally developed to target the nine hallmarks of aging, Lumity is collaborating with one of the leading biological age testing companies to test the short-term impact of the Morning & Night supplement on the biological age of those who have never used the supplement before. 


PURPOSE

The purpose of this research study is to test the impact of 12 weeks supplementation with Lumity’s Morning & Night soft gels on biological age, as well as feelings of health and happiness. Around 50 women aged 35 years and older will participate in this study.


DURATION

Your participation in the study will last for the 12 weeks of supplementation, with a GlycanAge consultation available at the end, once your biological age tests have been completed. 


WHAT’S INVOLVED?

If you agree to participate, after completing your sign up and consent, you will be able to purchase your #FeelGood Study Bundle. You will receive a GlycanAge test kit along with a 4 week Morning & Night starter kit and Supplement Travel Cases in your first order. Before starting your supplements, you will need to complete a self administered finger-prick blood test as directed, and send this back for testing on the same day, you will also complete an online Health & Happiness Questionnaire (which will be received via email and take no more than 5 minutes).

For the next 12 weeks, take your daily supplements after waking (4 x Morning supplement) and before bed (4 x Night supplement). 

At weeks 4, 8 and 12, you will receive an email with a link to the follow up Health & Happiness questionnaires, which will take no more than 5 minutes and should be completed within 2 days of receiving the link. 

After 12 weeks, you will receive your second GlycanAge test kit. As before, you will complete a finger prick blood test and send the sample back in the pre-paid envelope on the same day.

Once GlycanAge has processed both samples and has the results for the before and after biological age test, you will be notified of your biological age results report via email. You will then have the opportunity to book a complimentary consultation with a GlycanAge specialist to discuss your results and any changes that could be implemented if you want to improve your results. 


POTENTIAL BENEFITS

Lumity’s Morning & Night supplements are used regularly by thousands of consumers who experience enhanced feelings of health and wellbeing, as well as improvements in physical health. GlycanAge test kits are designed to inform you of your body’s biological age and can help with making informed lifestyle choices. 


POTENTIAL RISKS, SIDE EFFECTS, DISCOMFORTS, INCONVENIENCES

The finger prick test can cause initial, mild discomfort, which should subside soon after.

If you experience any discomfort or have any questions during the duration of the study, please reach out to the Lumity team.

There will be 4 short questionnaires over the 12 weeks that take no more than 5 minutes to complete.
