Lumen announces UK launch of metabolism tracker to aid personalised nutrition


The handheld, portable device and app now arrives in the UK providing a convenient way to measure the body’s carbon dioxide concentration to determine the fuel type the body is using to produce energy.

Lumen is then able to provide personalised suggestions on when and what to consume to fuel workouts, based on metabolic traits to improve the ability to shift between fats or carbs as energy sources.

“While metabolism is key to weight loss, the only way to test metabolism was through a restrictive, hours-long laboratory process, leaving regular people with zero visibility into their metabolic rate and only haphazard ways of improving it,”​ says Michal Mor, co-founder and head of science for product at Lumen.

“With Lumen, we are bringing scientifically rigorous insight into personal metabolism for the very first time, allowing anyone at home to measure how efficient their body is at burning calories, but also sharing research-driven recommendations on how they can reach their health and fitness goals faster.”

Scientific scrutiny

The device was the subject of a study​ by Lumen’s makers Metaflow and San Francisco State University in which the device provided ‘valid information’ regarding an individual’s metabolic state.

Here, metabolic fuel usage was assessed in 33 healthy participants via respiratory exchange ratio (RER) values from the industry standard TrueOne 2400 metabolic cart as well as %CO2 from the Lumen device.

Measurements were performed at rest in two conditions, fasting, and after consuming 150 grams (g) of glucose in order to determine changes in metabolic fuel.
