But in 2014 she met Dr. Paul Clayton, who prescribed her a new protocol – and within one month she was back at work, full of energy. She left her job in public relations and set out to create the ultimate all-in-one supplement, and that’s where LYMA began. Launched in 2018, LYMA is flying the flag for evidence-based nutrition – as Lucy explains: ‘LYMA only uses peer-reviewed, patented ingredients which are all properly characterised (i.e. identified), standardised and shown in published clinical trials to be effective.’ Potential benefits of the supplement include better skin, improved memory, stress reduction and reduced allergy symptoms. lyma.life
