Over the last five years, Clare had begun to experience panic attacks for the first time. “It’s really frightening,” she explains, “your whole body goes hot, cold, sweating. You just lose all ability to function properly.” She would struggle to breathe, she said, until her husband would come and help her to calm down “so that you don’t get to the point of passing out.”
She would experience one or two a year, she said, until August 2020. It was at that time that her oldest son was just preparing for university, “and I found myself in a very anxious disposition: how was he going to cope? How was he going to settle in? Would he make friends?”
As the attacks became more frequent, Clare would begin to worry about them happening, which compounded the exhaustion and stress. As they usually happened in the middle of the night, she would dread going to sleep, “because I don’t want to wake up and have that happen to me.”
It was at this point that a good friend saw how Clare was feeling and told her she had felt the same when her son had left home a few years before. “She knew exactly what I was feeling, and so she recommended LYMA to me.”
Clare’s father is a chemist, so she sent him the formula to see what he thought. Impressed, he urged his daughter to give it a try. As soon as Clare started with the Supplement, the change was palpable. Clare says she now gets eight hours of sleep a night and has not suffered a single panic attack.
Clare initially took the supplement for just a month – having ordered the starter kit – and seeing progress in such a brief time made her think “perhaps I’m feeling better again. So I actually stopped taking LYMA.” In those intervening months she began to feel anxious and stressed again. After one particularly bad night’s sleep, she says, “I came downstairs and I said to my husband: ‘that’s it. I need to get back on LYMA.’”
It is an investment, says Clare, but she knows it is the right one for her. Even her father, a retired chemist, could not find fault in the combination of nutrients LYMA were adding into her day.
Most supplements out there on the market today are a placebo: they use ingredients with no medical evidence to back up their efficacy, in amounts that vary per capsule, in forms that aren’t necessarily bioavailable and therefore useable by the body.
This is what we wanted to tackle: a market full of options that don’t seem to work. No more trying to devise a cocktail of perfect supplements from the shelves of your local shop. Our beautiful copper capsules come to your door once a month, and manage to truly supplement your health in ways a healthy diet can’t and any other supplement could never manage to do. Whether it’s your immune system, mood, sleep or physical appearance, the LYMA Supplement’s combination of patented, clinically trialled and proven ingredients are the product of top scientists figuring out how to give you a real advantage in life.
Saffron has long been praised in Persian medicine as a powerful adaptogen that can treat anxiety. Avicenna, the ancient polymath, wrote at length about its powers for helping with mental health. Centuries later, the patented extract affron® has been found in peer-reviewed trials to be beneficial for people's mental health, and even help to counteract the side-effects of anti-depressants.
