What time of day is best to take LYMA?

We recommend that you take two capsules in the morning with breakfast and two capsules in the evening with dinner. This doesn’t have to be a large meal, a small portion of fruit or some nuts will suffice. Do not exceed the recommended dose and please wait at least 30 minutes before or after caffeine intake, as caffeine can inhibit absorption of nutrients.

Can LYMA help with sleep quality?

Three of the actives (KSM-66®Ashwagandha, affron® and Cognizin®) may enhance aspects of brain function in a way that is designed to improve sleep onset and quality.

Can LYMA help to lift mood?

affron® a standardized extract from crocus sativa, has been shown to alleviate low mood states and anxiety. It is thought to do so by enhancing resilience, or the ability to deal with adversity. This behavioural component is located in the hypothalamus and more specifically the VTA. Resilience appears to be an active brain state linked to specific genes being switched on and specific ion channels being activated in the VTA, and the actives in affron® are believed to act on these genes, ion channels and neurons. Wellmune® and KSM66® Ashwagandha play supporting roles here too.

Can LYMA help to reduce stress?

KSM66® Ashwagandha, an extensively trialled and highly purified form of Ashwagandha, is a xeno-hormetic that has been used for centuries in India to reduce stress and achieve harmony and balance. It works in parallel with affron® and HydroCurc®, via an up-regulation of a series of stress-responsive proteins called alarmins, include both HSP’s and sestrins. In this way it provides additional improvements in mental function, which are further enhanced by Cognizin®, another of the validated actives in the LYMA formulation.

Can LYMA protect against oxidative stress damage?

The LYMA formula contains Lycored Lycopene™ which is an ultra-powerful, highly bioavailable carotenoid. This revolutionary ingredient has well documented cardiovascular health benefits and research suggests it can help in reducing DNA damage, one of the main drivers of the ageing process. Clinical studies with Lycored Lycopene™ have shown a 50% reduction in lymphocyte DNA damage and 6% reduction in blood pressure. (the same as drug intervention in this study).

Can LYMA help to reduce inflammation?

Reducing inflammation is a key objective to achieve optimal health and wellbeing. The LYMA formula includes turmeric (curcumin) which has been extensively studied for its anti-inflammatory properties. LYMA features the revolutionary ingredient HydroCurc® which is the world’s most bioavailable form of curcumin. This well-researched, patented ingredient is four times more potent than generic turmeric, providing 90% curcuminoids and 230% improved bioavailability compared to generic curcumin supplements.

Can LYMA boost cognition and mental energy?

Cognizin® (cytidine 5′-diphosphocholine), is an endogenous nucleotide naturally found in the body where it is an essential intermediate in the synthesis of the major phospholipid of the cell membranes, phosphatidylcholine. This constitutes a pool for the synthesis of acetyl choline, one of the brain’s main neurotransmitters. There is also evidence of antioxidant activity and a stimulatory effect on the release of dopamine neurotransmitters in the brain; a series of actions which have earned citicoline a role in the enhancement of memory. The KSM-66®Ashwagandha and affron® work here too, via stress reduction and generally improved well-being. Wellmune® has been shown in multiple studies to improve Profile of Mood States score.

How will LYMA affect my hormone levels?

LYMA will offer optimum support during periods of stress. If you are taking prescribed hormone therapy, it’s advisable to discuss with your doctor.

Can LYMA improve my osteoporosis levels?

Ingredients in the LYMA formula support bone health, age related bone degeneration and may reduce the risk of osteoporosis. If you are taking medication for osteoporosis, you should discuss this with your doctor before taking LYMA. Lycored Lycopene™ is proven to support bone health by improving resistance to DNA damage. Vitamin D3 at a daily dosage level of 2000 i.u. has been shown to reduce risk of osteoporosis by 37%. K2Vital®Delta has been proven to reduce hip fracture risk by 80% and also support in age related bone mineral decline.

What benefits are there for menopausal women in taking LYMA?

The effects of menopause are very diverse and include changes in energy, mood, libido and temperature control. We cannot modify all of these, but the complex of actives in LYMA will help with many of them.

There are numerous benefits for menopausal women taking LYMA. KSM66® Ashwagandha is an adaptogen which is useful in helping the body adapt to the stress it is placed under throughout the menopause. Cynatine®HNS is an outstanding form of keratin which will support hair, skin and nails which are often reported to suffer during menopause. In fact, the clinical trials relating to this ingredient have been carried out on women who are aged between 40 and 71. Your body is susceptible to free radical damage as we age. Extensive studies with curcumin have shown reduction in oxidative stress and inflammation. Once you reach the menopause the reduction of oestrogen puts bone health at risk and It’s imperative to ensure you get enough Vitamins D3 and K2 which help to deliver calcium to the bones. From a cognitive perspective, Cognizin® supports brain function and helps protect against molecular degeneration. affron® is creating a buzz amongst academics and scientists as the first saffron extract on the market to be supported with peer-reviewed clinical evidence to demonstrate positive benefits across mood and sleep quality, both issues faced during the menopause.

How will LYMA improve my immunity?

Wellmune®, a standardized and validated 1-3, 1-6 beta glucan, acts in harness with HydroCurc® via immunomodulation. Replacing the 1-3, 1-6 beta glucans which have been progressively removed from our food chain over the last half century, these natural compounds act at receptor sites on our immune cells and improve innate immune cellular function. This in turn improves resistance to infection and reduces the tendency to allergy via inter alia lowering the TH2/TH2 ratio.

The xeno-hormetic action of KSM-66®Ashwagandha and the mood-elevating impact of affron® provide additional protection, by reducing the immuno-suppressive effects of stress.

Last but not least, K2Vital®Delta and Vita-Algae D3 is a potent combination for bone, heart and immune health, and the actives we use have been shown to enhance bone and vascular physiology, and a range of immune functions.

If you follow the links in our ingredients’ section, you can make an unbiased view for yourselves.

Is LYMA an effective antioxidant?

Antioxidants are compounds that inhibit oxidation. They have a role to play in the body, where they regulate the overall redox environment. Antioxidant supplements are still used commercially, but after the failure of many antioxidant trials, the science has moved on. The emphasis is now on chronic inflammation and the supplementation use of anti-inflammatory agents. As to the question if LYMA is a powerful anti-inflammatory? Our hands are tied by the legislation to explain this. We suggest you follow the peer-reviewed references provided in our ingredients’ section so you can make an unbiased view for yourselves.

Can LYMA help to increase energy?

The combination of Wellmune®, affron® and KSM-66® Ashwagandha reduces mental and physiological stress, resulting in increased vigour and energy.

How will LYMA improve my nails?

Peer-reviewed clinical studies have demonstrated 88% harder nails & less nail breakage & 100% nail colour recovery in women aged between 40 and 71 over 90 days.

How will LYMA improve my hair, skin and nails?

The sum of our ingredients working in harmony are LYMA’s greatest contributor to beauty.

LYMA includes Cynatine® HNS which is the most exciting ingredient in the world of nutricosmetics. With a growing evidence base behind it, Cynatine® HNS is increasingly recognised as a genuine cosmeceutical with enormous potential in aesthetic improvement, comprised of a 96% soluble, stable and bioavailable keratin. Originally a protein found naturally in structures such as hair, skin and nails, clinical studies in women aged 40+ have demonstrated an increase in skin elasticity and moisture content resulting in improved appearance. Hair strands are structurally strengthened, hair loss is reduced and resulting hair appears thicker. Nails appear significantly stronger with full colour recovery. Cynatine® HNS is clinically proven to be effective at a dosage of 500mg a day. This is future beauty.

LycoRed Lycopene contains standardised lycopene, a powerful antioxidant thought to protect cells in many parts of the body from oxidative damage and protect against many serious health conditions. Among its many benefits are improved skin appearance, and protection against UV-damage and skin ageing. It also up-regulates Connexin-43, a vitally important health-protective mechanism. HydroCurc®’s ability to reduce inflammatory stress adds to overall skin improvement.

Why is LYMA such an effective beauty supplement?

The way we look affects the way we feel. LYMA was designed to offer future beauty benefits by assuring that all areas of our body perform optimally, decreasing inflammation and allowing an optimal beauty response in the process. LYMA is a supplement powered by science to deliver optimum results.

Why is LYMA the ultimate supplement?

LYMA has changed the way the world looks at supplements.

However, the lack of regulation means that the industry is awash with low-quality products that deliver little or no benefit with bold claims and no real evidence to support them.

LYMA is different. We refuse to work with unproven ingredients that offer nothing outside of hope and hype.

LYMA is the first supplement company to use nine of the best, patented ingredients, proven in over 200 peer-reviewed clinical trials to restore ultimate balance and enable you to start feeling your best.

This is the LYMA difference. No other supplement comes close.

How do I know LYMA will benefit my body?

The ingredients in LYMA have all been clinically trialled with proven efficacy at levels provided within the LYMA supplement. Unfortunately, the industry is plagued with low quality, unproven, synthetic ingredients trading in an unregulated environment that has no recognised industry standard for the products sold.

Even price is not always an indicator of the efficacy of an ingredient. Unless an ingredient has been clinically trialled, and peer-reviewed it’s not possible to prove efficacy. The LYMA formula is revolutionary. We are the first supplement to bring together nine patented ingredients to support health, wellbeing and beauty. Each ingredient has been selected on principles of outstanding technology, bioavailability, stability and clinical research. Many users requite feelings of calm and serenity a few weeks in, better sleep and beauty benefits follow in the coming months ahead. LYMA is a journey to discovering your absolute best.

The LYMA formula

How is LYMA truly different to other supplements on the market?

LYMA contains patented ingredients that go above and beyond to support optimal wellness. LYMA’s ingredients are selected on the premise of bioavailability, stability, purity and innovation. These super ingredients are backed by more research than other supplement on the market and our formula is developed by leading pharmaco-nutrition experts. You can trust us to deliver.

How does a powder versus a capsule differ in terms of absorption?

A capsule’s outer coating acts as a protective mechanism from the acidity in the stomach. Once the capsule disintegrates, you are left with the compressed powder which can be readily absorbed by the intestine, into the circulation.

Can you get the nutrients in the LYMA formula from a balanced diet? 

LYMA doesn’t pretend to be a multivitamin. It’s something completely different. The LYMA formula includes ingredients that cannot be found in effective doses through food alone to help users who want to increase their health and wellness potential progress to the next level.

The LYMA formula truly meets the highest standards by taking nutrients beyond the capabilities of ‘organic’. These ingredients are powered by the best science to offer outstanding delivery systems, stability and efficacy once ingested. LYMA’s ingredients have up to four times the absorption of generic supplements, meaning the body is able to absorb these nutrients faster and at a deeper cellular level. This is the true definition of a supplement.

What’s a nutraceutical?

Nutraceuticals are those ingredients which have clinical evidence supportive of health. Patented ingredients tend to be nutraceuticals with clinical data to back their use. The difference is everything.

Why doesn’t the LYMA formula include a multi-vitamin?

Does any other multi-vitamin or supplement brand use any of these patented ingredients?

LYMA is a unique formulation, you won’t find anything else like it. You may find other products on the market that adopt one or two patented ingredients and even some products will use one or two that are featured in LYMA, but no other supplement uses as many patented ingredients at active levels. LYMA is in another league to anything on the market, of that we can assure you.

Why does LYMA use patented ingredients?

Patented ingredients tend to have special qualities worth protecting. Such qualities include protecting a unique technology, the purity of material, bioavailability and the stability of an active. Pre-clinical and clinical data is always thorough and completed. On the other hand, generic ingredients tend to be those with average qualities and are unproven. We have full trust in our formula to really deliver results because of the years of research behind them.

We have full trust in our formula to really deliver results because of the years of research behind them.

Why is LYMA more expensive than other supplements? 

LYMA was created with a no expense spared ethos. We wanted to offer customers the very best of what was available, but we also wanted to provide value. Peer-reviewed, patented ingredients are the gold standard in nutrition. Each one of LYMA’S ingredients is clinically proven in a suite of peer-reviewed clinical studies.

To purchase each ingredient in LYMA separately at the same dosage would cost significantly more money and require robust and time-consuming searches.

LYMA not only represents value financially, it also saves customers from having to take over 20 pills daily if taking the same ingredients separately. Four LYMA pills daily will elicit the same response at a fraction of the cost and with less hassle. Life can be complicated enough, which is why we’ve made supplementation simple.

Why does LYMA cost £149 GBP?

Trust, efficacy and powerful science comes at a cost. At LYMA, no expense has been spared. We want you to feel your absolute best and have taken a no expense spared ethos.

Our global team of scientists took three years to formulate LYMA. Their brief was simple, to create the world’s best supplement. We believe that health is not something to be taken to chance.

Evidence-based ingredients as formulated in LYMA, costs more than 400x than organic.

LYMA’s formula incorporates nine, patented, peer-reviewed ingredients. Each dosed to deliver outstanding results and designed to outperform their organic counterparts.

Our investment, research and the scientific innovation involved in the creation of LYMA’s ingredients comes a cost. But unless we are uncompromising in our quest to offer the best, supplements simply won’t work. LYMA is a complete game changer.

LYMA is proud of the science packed into every capsule, knowing it can change lives, deliver real results and all for the same price as a daily coffee.

Why we created LYMA as one formula to fit all?

The industry wants to sell you a myriad of different supplements to combat areas that LYMA can fulfil with its one formula approach.

We only use actives which have been proven in peer-reviewed clinical and pre-clinical studies. LYMA’s formula has been tested to ensure all the ingredients work together and perform optimally.

LYMA proves there is no need to take multiple supplements to target different areas of the body. Life can be complex enough, which is why we’ve made supplements simple with no compromises.

Where do the LYMA ingredients originate?

The patented, peer-reviewed ingredients in the LYMA formula are sourced from the world’s leading pharmaco-nutrition companies based in the USA, India, Japan, Norway and France. All LYMA’s ingredients are fully traceable and ethically sourced.

Who formulated LYMA?

LYMA was formulated by a team of leading nutritional scientists with over 100 years’ combined experience at the forefront of the pharmaco-nutrition industry. We only consult and work with leading figures in pharmaco-nutrition to assure that anything LYMA delivers is the absolute best.

LYMA’s updated formula

Are there any downsides to the new LYMA formula?

The first LYMA formula was the most advanced formula on the market, but there is no such thing as future proof. The evidence base for pharmaco-nutrition is growing rapidly, and we are in a constant development phase.

What’s the relationship between chronic inflammatory stress and disease?

Chronic inflammatory stress drives non-communicable disease and is increasingly regarded as a central element in the ageing process, hence the term ‘inflammageing’. It is largely driven by lifestyle factors, and among these, diet is the most important. Dysnutrition is the most important cause of early death globally, and the ultra-processed foods that take up an increasing proportion of our diet not only cause chronic inflammation but also obesity, dysbiosis and immunological imbalance. Public health is in decline and we are losing life expectancy. It is not hard to see why, and it is more important than ever, now that science is underpinning the uses and importance of specific food and herbal derivates, to insist on patented, validated and clinically proven nutrients. The ingredients in LYMA have multiple proven actions and have been combined with great care to generate overlapping and synergistic benefits.

How has LYMA’s formula improved?

The LYMA formulation contains a physiologically active 600mg daily dose of HydroCurc®, a specialized delivery format of curcumin. HydroCurc® achieves plasma levels where significant biological enhancement occurs. This has been shown to significantly improve quality of life in preclinical models and curcumin, the active in HydroCurc® is increasingly regarded as a senolytic and a gero-supressant.

LYMA’s updated formulation also contains an active dose of affron®, which is creating a buzz amongst academics and scientists as the first saffron extract on the market to be supported with peer-reviewed clinical evidence. Six studies to date have demonstrated positive benefits across mood and sleep quality in healthy adults. Its efficacy has also been demonstrated for use in conjunction with adults who are taking anti-depressants to decrease side effects.

Why did you update your formula?

Science progresses, and as it does, we keep up with it. As more validated materials achieve evidence-based status, we will review the science and determine whether they make the LYMA grade.

LYMA’s patented ingredients have been selected on the premise of outstanding bioavailability, stability and efficacy. Unlike generic ingredients, patented ingredients give consumers assurance they are ingesting the gold standard in supplements with each ingredient backed by a suite of clinical trials and considerable time and financial investment.

There has been lots in the press recently about Vitamin D toxicity. How do you know that 2,000 i.u. isn’t a dangerous daily dosage level?

Has LYMA been clinically tested?

LYMA doesn’t require a clinical trial on the final formula because we only use patented (validated) ingredients, each dosed at the same levels as proven in the individual peer-reviewed clinical trials.

Each of the actives in LYMA have been fully validated, and because they’re all doing different things and because the molecules themselves are of different kinds, they don’t interfere with each other, and we conduct rigorous stability tests as part of our manufacturing to confirm this. One doesn’t stop the absorption of the other, because they go to different parts of the body. The whole is the sum of its products. There is no need to test the final LYMA formula because each of their constituent parts the data has been published publicly.


Does LYMA contain artificial bulking components?

Clinical evidence

What to look for in results? 

Statistical significance is usually achieved where the P value in the results section is less than 0.05 (P≤0.05). This means the null hypothesis can be rejected and the sample results are usually deemed significant.

What is the difference between a beauty clinical trial and an ingestible clinical trial?

Most beauty clinical trials involve topical application of product to the skin. In recent years orally taken nutraceuticals have been successfully shown to provide beauty benefits – coining the phrase ‘beauty from within’.

LYMA’s nutricosmetic ingredients provide proven beauty benefits based on oral consumption in peer-reviewed clinical trials.

What is the Oxford scale of happiness?

The Oxford Happiness Inventory as it’s known was devised as a broad measure of personal happiness. This was mainly used for in-house use in the Department of Experimental Psychology of the University of Oxford in the late 1980’s. Since this time a more compacted version has been adopted - The Oxford Happiness Questionnaire. We recommend assessing your degree of happiness before the outset of your LYMA experience. Try this at three months into your journey and again at six months to truly appreciate how this product is performing.

What to look out for in a clinical study?

Check if the study has been published in a peer-reviewed journal. This way you can be sure the clinical study has not been doctored in any way and results are genuine. All LYMA’s ingredients have been published in peer-reviewed journals.

The study design is also 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. These underpin LYMA’s patented ingredients. The credibility of research can also vary. Studies can be double blind in design, randomised or 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, then there is a good reason. It hasn’t met the criteria.

You’ll often see the words ‘clinically tested’ attached to wellness products. What this actually means is that a company has paid to conduct a private clinical trial. These results cannot be trusted. The industry doesn’t trust these results, and neither should you.

On the other hand, peer-reviewed studies, are published and reviewed medical journals. This is the gold standard that the medical profession fully supports. This is why we only use peer-reviewed ingredients. This is transparent evidence-based nutrition, and this is why LYMA is so different to the rest of the supplement industry.

Has LYMA been clinically tested?

Each of our patented ingredients has strong clinical data to back its inclusion into a supplement of LYMA’s standing. We are proud to have over peer-reviewed 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 studies are only category of study which have been 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.

This is the gold standard that the medical profession fully supports. This is why we only use peer-reviewed ingredients. This is transparent evidence-based nutrition, and this is why LYMA is so different to the rest of the supplement industry.
