Change your daily routine, transform your health.
Circadian rhythms are biological processes or clocks that exist in each one of our cells. Programmed to turn genes on or off at different times of the day or night, they influence every aspect of our health from weight and energy levels through to resistance to disease and infection, and how well we sleep.
Now, in The Circadian Code, this new science is revealed, showing that the timings of our day (when we eat, sleep, exercise, work) are more crucial than we ever thought before. And that, most importantly, if your daily schedule is out of sync with your circadian rhythms, you can fix it!
Whether you are a shift worker, a frustrated dieter, someone suffering from sleep problems or chronic illness, whatever your health concern, The Circadian Codeis the key to unlocking your health.
'When you get in sync with your body's instinctive circadian rhythm, everything you do feels easier. Losing weight, having more energy, and sleeping well just happen naturally. Read Satchin Panda's book to take advantage of this brand new science. It works, and I use it!' ---Dave Asprey, New York Times bestselling author of The Bulletproof Diet
'One of the essential factors to ensure longevity is to align your life with your body's circadian rhythms. The Circadian Code, written by one of the world's leading experts on circadian rhythms, offers a complete program to recalibrate your day/night activities, optimize sleep, lose weight, learn/work, and exercise. ---Valter Longo, PhD, author of the international bestseller, The Longevity Diet
"A very readable and enjoyable introduction to what is a major topic in the circadian field: paying attention to your circadian clock, what one might call 'circadian hygiene, ' including the benefits of time-restricted eating." ---Michael Rosbash, Nobel Laureate (Physiology and Medicine), Peter Gruber Professor of Neuroscience Brandeis University/HHMI
"The Circadian Code offers some of the most powerful insights on health available today, written in a riveting and easily accessible style. By bringing to light the latest research on circadian rhythms, Dr. Panda gives us the gift of understanding how we can access the wisdom of the body, easily support healthy circadian rhythms, and, in the process, prevent or reverse disease, more easily manage weight, and feel well rested and renewed every day. I've spent decades working in high tech, and have studied the impacts of technology on our health. The Circadian Code offers practical advice for vitality and health in our modern, technology saturated world. " ---Linda Stone, Former Apple and Microsoft executive
