Body Clock Score
Plants, animals, humans, and even individual cells, all have internal body clocks known as "Circadian Rhythms". These rhythms govern your brain, metabolism, immune system, and virtually every organ system in your body. Based on 30+ years of research, we designed the Body Clock Score. It's simple, go to bed and wake up at the same time each day to keep a high score. This will reduce (1) body fat, (2) inflammation, and improve (3) mental performance, and (4) sleep.
Sleep Time Historical
Sleep timing effects hormone release, gene expression, organ function, and mental acuity. Aligning your historical sleep times with professional and social requirements is crucial to health and performance.
Circadian CBT Nadir
Your body temperature fluctuates throughout the day. Your nadir (time of lowest temperature), precedes changes in hormone secretion and brain activity that cause you to wake up in the morning. We use an algorithm based on 25+ years of research to estimate your core body temperature.
Fat Burn Maxima
Exercising in a fasting state, like in the morning before breakfast, forces your muscles to use fat for energy, thereby increasing fat-burn in a given minute of exercise. If trying to tone your muscles or reduce fat, exercising first thing in the morning is effective.
We use your Circadian Rhythm to identify your optimal meal times, and relative meal sizes. Over a decade of research indicates that simply eating at these times, even without dieting, will reduce body fat and inflammation.
The feeling of grogginess, or reduced mental performance in the morning, is termed Sleep Inertia, and scientists have been investigating ways to reduce it for decades. Building on their research, our algorithm models your sleep inertia each day, so you know when mental performance is reduced, and can plan your work or studies accordingly.
Just as gene expression, metabolism, and immunity vary with time of day and your circadian rhythm, so does cognitive performance. We synthesized 30+ years of published research with our own experimental results, and developed a model to predict when your cognitive performance will peak each day.
Afternoon Circadian Nadir
Cultures have long observed mid afternoon bouts of sleepiness, with the most commonly known tradition being the "siesta". In controlled studies, scientists have observed significant changes in cognitive performance consistent with the traditional "post-lunch dip". We synthesized this research into a single algorithm to predict your midday drop in cognitive performance.
Athletic performance varies with circadian rhythm. Researchers have identified mechanisms, such as varied hormone levels and lung resistance, to explain these hourly changes. We incorporated this research into our circadian rhythm model, so you can see what time your athletic performance most likely peaks each day.
