Highlights

  • Inadequate sleep duration disrupts the body’s hormonal balance, leading to an increase in hunger and a decrease in the feeling of fullness
  • Lack of sleep also affects glucose metabolism, insulin sensitivity, and stress hormone levels, all of which contribute to weight gain and obesity
  • Improving sleep quality, mood, and energy levels, light therapy indirectly addresses obesity risk factors and promotes overall well-being

Modern-age living marked by sedentary lifestyles and easily accessible processed foods, the global obesity epidemic continues to rise. While factors such as diet and physical activity are commonly associated with weight gain, emerging research has highlighted a crucial, yet often overlooked contributor: sleep.

What is the sleep-obesity connection?

Sleep and obesity are deeply intertwined, with each influencing the other in a complex feedback loop. Numerous studies highlight the connection between inadequate sleep and an increased risk of obesity.

  • Sleep deprivation negatively impacts glucose metabolism and insulin sensitivity
  • Odd hour snacking on fatty foods, sugar-laced treats & and aerated drinks are major contributors to unhealthy weight gain
  • Sugar rush from processed foods often leads to anxiety, causing to stay awake and obstructing sleep
  • Chronic sleep deficiency also leads to heightened levels of stress hormones, which may add to fat storage, especially in the abdominal region
  • These factors potentially contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes – a condition closely associated with obesity

How does retimer help?

The human body clock, known as the circadian rhythm, plays a crucial role in regulating sleep-wake cycles and various physiological processes. This rhythm is primarily influenced by exposure to light, particularly natural sunlight.

Our exposure to natural light has been greatly diminished due to indoor lifestyles and excessive screen time. retimer mimics sunlight and can be easily worn in the comfort of our home. It helps restore balance to our disrupted circadian rhythms and will eventually mitigate negative effects on sleep and weight.
