One of the many benefits of Lumity which our clients notice is that they heal quickly after surgery, and rarely catch colds and flu as well as other bugs which are going around, so I have put together a guide to explain exactly how the all-natural ingredients in our day and night capsules work together in unison with your body’s immune system.
In order to fast-track healing, the body needs increased amounts of energy, amino acids, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A, C, D and E and the minerals zinc, magnesium and selenium.
Lumity contains magnesium, coenzyme q10 and acetyl-l-carnitine, which boost energy levels through ensuring more efficient energy production and transportation, so the body can heal well and maintain optimum functionality.
The amino acids contained in Lumity play a vital role in maintaining a healthy immune system. They are critical in reducing the risk of infection, repairing damage and regenerating new tissue. Glutamine, together with arginine and lysine, promotes the release of human growth hormone, which is crucial to the regeneration of damaged tissue. Human growth hormone also stimulates immune resilience.
Lysine, together with vitamin C, is essential in the production of collagen and elastin, which supports the growth, repair and maintenance of healthy skin, muscles and connective tissue, a critical process in the healing of wounds.
Omega-3 fatty acids, contained in flaxseed oil, for example, can greatly increase the number and activation of white blood cells, responsible for fighting off disease and infection. Omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties and protect all cell membranes, keeping them efficient at admitting healthy substances while barring damaging ones.
Vitamin A stimulates growth of the base layer of the skin and so is crucial in wound-healing, whether of the external skin or of the body’s inner skin, made up of mucous linings.
By moisturising and maintaining the structural integrity of mucous linings, which support healthy secretion, vitamin A helps the body fight off infectious agents.
Vitamin D is essential for the absorption and metabolism of calcium and phosphorus – a key function in repairing fractures and breakages of bones as well as for normal blood clotting and heart function.
In order to assist with healing and to minimise clotting, vitamin E is a useful nutrient before and after surgery. It significantly assists in the repair of skin lesions, ulcers, burns, abrasions and dry skin, and diminishes the scars caused by injury or surgery. The presence of vitamin E and selenium can increase antibody formation 20-30 fold.
Zinc is an important nutrient in healing mechanisms, healthy growth and development, muscle repair, immune function and protection from free radical damage. Zinc helps the body utilise and maintain levels of vitamin A. Through this action, zinc helps maintain healthy skin cells and generate new skin after injury or surgery. This function is strengthened by zinc’s role in collagen formation.
Curcumin has very strong antioxidant and antibacterial effects and is a powerful anti-inflammatory. It also supports the liver and detoxification pathways.
All the nutrients above are contained in the Lumity formula. Blended for optimum synergy, together they harness the superior healing processes of the body to ensure peak health and sustained youthfulness.
