A New Alarm Clock App (Patent Pending) Helps to Lose Weight and Fat

Hannover, Germany (PRWEB) March 05, 2013

Stress begins in the morning. Conventional alarm clocks can harm your health. A scientific study (Scand J Clin Lab Invest. 2009) shows that even the wake-up call of a conventional alarm clock leads to unhealthy stress. The concentration of the stress hormone "Cortisol" is more than doubled. The concentration of the stress hormone Cortisol was tested under various waking conditions - waking both on workdays and on a free day with a conventional alarm clock and waking spontaneously. The results showed that the Cortisol levels in the first 30 minutes after waking with a conventional alarm clock had risen by an average of 100% - regardless of whether it was a workday or a free day. When the probands woke spontaneously, however, the concentration of Cortisol rose only 39%. This means, conventional alarm clocks induce almost three times more unhealthy stress in the morning.

The new Stress Free Alarm Clock 1.1 - App (patent pending) for Android and iOS does not need any sensors like other sleep cycle alarm clocks.
In recent years, research has shown that how a person deals with everyday stress can affect waistline in particular. This can be a huge threat to the health because abdominal fat is more dangerous - and increases disease risk more - than fat located in any other part of the body. Excessive abdominal fat is linked directly to serious health conditions like hypertension and diabetes. Women in particular have been found to accumulate more fat around their waists while they're under stress. Obese persons have significantly higher urinary free cortisol excretion than normal-weight persons.
Higher and more prolonged levels of cortisol in the bloodstream have been shown to have negative effects, such as: weight gain, depression, pain, decreased bone density, skeletal muscle wasting, high blood pressure, lowered immunity, impaired erectile function, menstrual abnormalities, fatigue, chronic pain, headache, migraine, fibromyalgia, muscle pain, poor digestion, oily skin, acne and eczema. Elevated cortisol also leads to wrinkles, sagging, and impaired wound healing. Elevated cortisol in pregnant mothers influences cortisol metabolism during the baby's crucial development periods.

To keep cortisol levels healthy and under control, a clinical neuroscientist developed and patented an innovative sleep cycle alarm clock app. Compared to conventional alarm clocks, the new Stress Free Alarm Clock gives an individual wake up, which adapts itself to the users' particular needs within a few nights. This patented alarm clock leads to a gentle and stress-free wakeup. Sudden, abrupt waking in the morning as with loud, conventional alarm clocks and the associated release of stress hormones from the adrenal gland will be avoided by using this novel and intelligent self adapting, personal sleep cycle alarm clock. Health benefits are weight loss, stress reduction, increase of skeletal muscle mass, pain reduction, enhanced male virility, enhanced erectile function, improvement of cognitive performance, improvement of fatigue, chronic fatigue and better general health and physical fitness.

Stress Free Alarm Clock is very easy to use. In order to be woken up smoothly, sleepers will be guided from the deep sleep phase or dream phase into the light sleep phase by gentle sounds. Unlike the hitherto existing sleep cycle alarm clocks, Stress Free Alarm Clock does not require any additional implement such as wristband motion sensors, sound sensors or movement sensors. Users simply set their desired wake up time. After waking up, they merely slide a finger across the screen to stop the alarm. Everything else is taken care of by the patented and intelligent system.

Device Requirements: iOs or Android, iPhone 3GS/4/4S/5, iPod touch (3rd/4th/5th generation), and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later 1.0 MB or Android - devices.

Pricing and Availability: Stress Free Alarm Clock 1.1 is only $0.89 (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Health & Fitness category. It is also available for Android ($0.99).
