Waking up in the morning seems like a challenge while your contemporaries are able to complete all their work before clock even hits 12 pm? Feel like you have all the energy at night while all your friends want their beauty sleep? Well, this is a common problem faced by all of us as all our body schedules work differently. Let's uncover the reasoning and ways to manage this in the following article:
The reason and cause
What if we tell you that all of us as living beings are born with a certain affinity to an innate timing device? This device is made up of different proteins that end up interacting inside the cells and are spread throughout the body. Now, let’s give you a slightly more complex insight into this inbuilt clock. Firstly, we have the central clock which resides inside the suprachiasmatic nucleus of the brain. Then, we have a peripheral system of the clocks which are there in each organ system and tissue of the body. The central clock is what ends up coordinating with all the biological clocks in the living being. In the following article, we would be covering a lot more aspects of how your body works with its preset timings:
Time and schedule are of utmost importance
Basis this- we often answer the question- what is the right time to exercise or even eat food and most importantly put the body to rest. All of us run behind a high metabolism to get the most out of our regimes. One of the key factors to get this in place- is by complying with the biological clock that can help us make the most of our efforts! In a nutshell, we are advised to have five small meals as well as exercise at the same time - either in the morning or the evenings. We do not recommend late night workouts as they produce energy and the body needs its rest! So, based on this- we pay a lot of heed to the timings for everything.
Clock gene panel and high metabolism
Here is where the interesting part of the whole time factor comes in place! Based on the working of your biological clock and the impact of peripheral clocks throughout the day, our nutrigenomics experts take a call whether you are a morning personality or an evening personality. We call this the CLOCK gene panel. It stands for CLOCK (Circadian Locomotor Output Cycles Kaput) which helps decide the morning or evening preferences of an individual, the sleep alterations, metabolic disorders, different kind of cancers in the body, delayed phase in sleep and even recurrence of episodes in patients with mental disorders. Over our years in this industry, we have helped a lot of people get to the core of their CLOCK gene panel with the analysis and help them work towards a high metabolism.
While we are all running behind better health, we often suffer through sapped energy, tiredness during our workouts, post-meal slumps- only because the body’s biological clock isn’t ticking the same way as you are! With the help of a proper clock gene panel - you can understand your best time for higher productivity, plan out an effective workout, decide your carbs consumption and use it with many different aspects. You can check out more details here - to get your body working the way you want it to and getting the best of it all- high metabolism, energy throughout, rested brain and a way to keep chronic disorders at bay!
