By women, for women

Michal and Merav Mor, twin sisters with PhDs in Physiology, co-founded Lumen and act as Head of Science for Product and Head of Research and Science respectively.

Women started approaching us more and more about cycle tracking. Through research, we saw they experienced higher Lumen levels or more carb burn in the morning although they were eating right. By going into the data and the literature, we discovered the impact of women's cycle on their metabolism.

What Lumen beta testers have to say

I now adapt my nutrition to the phase of my cycle. I especially no longer crave sugars right before my period and I also sleep better although I’m not sure the latter is correlated.

Jane P.

Absolutely. It made me more aware of what I was eating and why. It definitely helped me to make better choices and keep the bloating at bay.

Karen L.

Because I am more aware of how my cycle affects my metabolism, I can better prepare and respond to what I am feeling by eating better/correct foods.

Rosalind M.

Yes. I love how it maps out the types of foods to eat, when, and why you should focus on those foods during each phase. I was reading Stacy Sims Roar book, but I like how Lumen lays out all the info in a simple way.
