Nearly 50% of British women claim they’re not getting enough sleep, with many of us remedying the issue with apps and gadgets. But have you ever considered the power of a hard-working supplement? We’ve partnered with Lumity to show how their Day and Night supplements work not only to boost overall wellness but also support your body around the clock. And the best bit? They’re offering SL readers a special 30% discount...
FIRSTLY, WHAT IS YOUR CIRCADIAN RHYTHM?
Our circadian rhythm is basically a 24-hour internal clock that runs in the back of our brains, which cycles between sleepiness and alertness at regular intervals. It’s known in its simplest term as our sleep/wake cycle. This master clock regulates sleep, body temperature, cardiac activity, blood pressure and metabolic rate, and can be disturbed by a range of issues including jet-lag, eating patterns and stress. While some don’t feel the dips and rises of their circadian rhythm regularly, those who haven’t caught up on sleep or are running on low energy most certainly will, along with feeling less alert and motivated. It’s also important to note that your circadian rhythm will likely change as you get older, hence the importance of keeping it in balance it with a two-step supplement like Lumity.
WHY DO YOU HAVE TO TAKE LUMITY AS A TWO-STEP METHOD?
While it seems a lot, this is actually what makes Lumity unique. “It’s designed to work in harmony with the body’s circadian rhythm. Optimum health comes from respecting the body’s circadian rhythm and the body has two very different modes for day and night,” explains Lumity founder, Sara Palmer Hussey. “By understanding and tailoring supplementation to these two different needs, we can support the healthier functioning and efficiency of our bodies.” During the day we are constantly in active mode and require strong defences, optimum function and efficient energy production, which is what Lumity’s morning capsules provide with vitamins, minerals and magnesium. As for Lumity’s night-time capsules, they harness the regenerative mode of sleep with natural amino acids. These are known to encourage the body to release our human growth hormone, which not only helps skin, but is responsible for all repair, regeneration and maintenance work in the body. It also helps improve cognitive function, boosts immune function and aids in lowering our levels of cortisol, which could help feelings of calmness, especially at bedtime.
DOES THE CIRCADIAN RHYTHM AFFECT OUR SKIN TOO?
Yes! Our inside health and wellbeing directly affect the appearance of our skin. Without enough sleep, or good quality sleep, our body is operating less efficiently and with a backlog of maintenance work. This is another reason Lumity is so key – while it’s designed to respect the body’s circadian rhythm, it also boosts the skin from the inside out. “The Lumity morning capsules' ingredients and Lumity facial oil work together to boost collagen and elastin formation in the skin, while clearing out age-accelerating toxins, reducing glycation and repairing oxidative damage. Come night-time, the capsules' unique amino-acid combination of lysine, arginine and glutamine helps activate the body's own HGH release to not only build muscle and repair and regenerate all tissues in the body, but also work to promote a youthful, plump complexion together with omega-3s, vitamins and minerals. Levels of HGH decline in the body from our 30s onwards, so, because of its ability to sustain youth, it is a good idea to help support its production,” confirms Sara.
CAN EVERYONE USE LUMITY TO BOOST THEIR OVERALL WELLNESS?
Anybody can use Lumity, especially if you’re looking to improve your overall wellness, hair and nail strength, and garner a more radiant complexion overall. The supplements offer real, tangible benefits, with 92% of Lumity testers seeing impressive results after just a few weeks. Some reports have even stated these magic pills have contributed to lessened symptoms of PMT.
