The wellness industry moves at lightning pace and can be challenging to predict but one thing’s for certain, wellness has long left faddy, woo woo territory and is now tech-driven, measurable and more science-based than ever before.
Longevity was a big focus of 2023, extending our healthspans to remain fitter and happier later into life. So, what’s on the horizon for 2024? The next frontier of wellness is curated genetics. 2024 wellness will be centred around manipulating, enhancing, and upregulating our gene expression for the ultimate in aesthetic and physical health.
“LYMA offers a 360 protocol of epigenetic wellness. The LYMA Laser, Skincare and Supplement are the complete ecosystem of extending your healthspan and optimising your body, skin and life right this moment and years into the future.”
The human genome is astonishingly complex and dynamic, with genes constantly turning on or off depending on what biochemical signals they receive from the body. Already an emerging buzzword, sirtuin genes and more particularly, mastering them, is the natural evolution of the conversation surrounding longevity. Sirtuins are enzymes that repair DNA, combat cellular inflammation, increase metabolism and make the body work more efficiently so as to age slower. Nutritional intake, environmental stressors, hormones, even mindset, all impact the body’s DNA methylation and our individual sirtuin activity.
LYMA has developed the world’s first and only epigenetic skin science able to treat the root causes of ageing, not just the superficial signs. An advanced formula that downregulates the gene expression responsible for cell death and dials up all gene expression responsible for collagen synthesis, key structural proteins and cellular regeneration. At a never-before-achieved ratio of 80% actives to 20% water, LYMA Skincare is packed with patented ingredients, clinically proven to transform skin and trick it into behaving younger.
“Our skincare has the highest concentration of active ingredients, hand-picked for their ability to reverse, or slow down the causes of skin ageing. We’ve formulated the most effective topical skincare product on the market, bar none,” LYMA Founder, Lucy Goff.
As we age, our mitochondrial function declines and skin is unable to heal as quickly, loses elasticity, tone becomes uneven, pigmentation amasses and wrinkles and fine lines start to form. Through a scientific process called photobiomodulation, Low-level Laser Therapy (LLLT) can travel through all layers of the skin, reaching cells deep down, where it redirects gene expression towards renewal and amps up ATP. The LYMA Laser is a clinic grade 500mW near-infrared laser beam that travels directly into the nuclei of skin cells to switch their energy centres back on, increasing mitochondrial activity. This in turn optimises collagen production, reinforces the skin barrier and strengthens the Extracellular Matrix, providing improved structural support for tighter, more sculpted skin.
“When it comes to skin renewal, the LYMA Laser is in a league of its own. Think of the Laser as the master energy switch that acts at a genetic level inducing a process of tissue repair and regeneration and suppressing ageing and decline,” Dr Graeme E. Glass, Plastic and Craniofacial Surgeon.
Epigenetics comes from all external influences, not least nutrition. Sirtuins can be activated by Time Restricted Fasting, ice baths and HIIT which all help to revive biological youth. Evidence based supplements dosed at clinical levels also have more than enough power to stimulate sirtuin activity. The award-winning, peer-reviewed LYMA Supplement formula contains ten patented ingredients proven to tackle inflammaging throughout the body. Among them, HydroCurc®, the world’s first 100% cold water dispersed curcumin, boasts over four times the active benefits of generic turmeric and is well documented to increase sirtuins. Validated 1,3 1,6 beta glucan Wellmune® Blend is a game-changer in terms of its anti-inflammaging potential and rejuvenating the body at a cellular level.
“Hacking the ageing process needs to start at a cellular level and involves altering gene expression. Gene expression can be modified in a few established ways, all of which contribute to a deceleration of the biological ageing process. You can make lifestyle choices to increase your sirtuin activity, be that through nutrition, exercise, mindset, skincare or supplementation,” Professor Paul Clayton, world-leading expert in the fast-developing science of preventative ageing.
