To purchase each of the patented ingredients LYMA uses, separately at the same dosage would cost more money.

We are proud to have over 200 clinical studies representing each of the ingredients in our formula. As part of the selection process, ingredients were chosen on the basis as not to conflict with each other’s unique mode of action. Given the diverse pharmacodynamic properties of the ingredients, there are no side effects.

What if a clinical trial hasn’t been featured in a peer reviewed journal?

Peer reviewed journals are studies which are critically assessed by the peers of the authors. If a study wants to be taken seriously, a credible study is always one that is peer reviewed, published independently in a credible journal rather than not at all.

What to look out for in a clinical study?

The study design is crucial, as is the result. Statistical and clinical significance are important, but if the study design is poorly thought out it affects the reliability of the results recorded. The gold standard for clinical studies are RCT’s or randomised control trials, as backed by LYMA’s patented ingredients. Adding to the credibility of research is whether the study is double blind in design, randomised and placebo controlled. These are all factors that improve validity of a trial.

How do I know if a clinical trial should be trusted?

If an ingredient isn’t backed by peer reviewed clinical evidence, there is a good reason. It means it hasn’t met the criteria.

In the case of LYMA – a food supplement, our nutricosmetic ingredients provide proven beauty benefits based on oral consumption in peer-reviewed clinical trials.

We recommend assessing your degree of happiness before the outset of your LYMA experience, at three months and again at six months to truly appreciate how this product is performing.
