Circadian Rhythm

What is the Circadian Rhythm?

The term circadian is derived from Latin phrase “circa diem” which translates to “around a day.” The circadian rhythm is 24-hour cycle that helps our bodies know when to carry out essential functions and processes to support optimum health and wellbeing.

The circadian rhythm is one of 64 unique rhythmic transcriptomes that humas have to coordinate mental and physical systems in the body.

One of the most important and well-known circadian rhythms is the sleep-wake cycle.

This 24-hour internal clock plays a vital role in virtually all systems of the body.

Our Circadian Rhythms are set by what we eat, how we sleep, what exercise we do and primarily by blue light.

Too much blue light can disrupt the important sleep-wake cycle and contribute to serious health issues.
