Metabolic Health is The Root of Wellness + Disease
Many people think that metabolic health is all about weight. But it’s much more than that.
If your metabolic processes are running smoothly, you’ll experience more than just regulated weight—you’ll feel happier, more alert, and more energetic.
If you’re feeling off, metabolic dysfunction may be the culprit.
88% of people in the U.S. show signs of metabolic dysfunction.
The Root of Disease
Symptoms of Metabolic Dysfunction
Many people have metabolic dysfunction and don’t even know it. When your metabolic processes are off, you can experience a variety of symptoms from chronic pain to weight gain to infertility.
What’s worse is that metabolic dysfunction often leads to diseases like obesity, PCOS, insulin resistance, heart disease, cancer, Alzheimers, and more.
The good news is these diseases can be prevented—and even reversed! By catching metabolic dysfunction early, you can take steps toward better long-term wellness.
Which symptoms are you experiencing?
From metabolic abnormalities to blood sugar imbalances and more, there can be many biological reasons for weight gain. Our lab kit explores them all.⁵ ⁶ ⁷
Studies show that insulin resistance is tied to 2x greater risk of developing depression. Our kit helps you know if this type of metabolic dysfunction is affecting you.⁴
You may be experiencing hormonal and metabolic imbalances that lead to constant feelings of fatigue. Our at-home lab test looks for these common causes of fatigue and brain fog.³
Irregular Periods/Difficulty Getting Pregnant
Irregular cycles can be a sign of PCOS or insulin resistance—both diseases that are connected to your metabolic health. Our kit helps you learn if these imbalances are affecting you.¹ ²

The Root of Wellness
Unlock Your Metabolic Health.
We believe understanding your biology is the first step in transforming your health from the inside out. With the right tools, you have the power to reverse your symptoms and prevent disease.
01) Know Your Biology.
Knowledge is power. Through a lab test, you can uncover key biomarkers that help you learn about your metabolic health. Our at-home kits allow you to test these factors at a fraction of the traditional cost and get a personalized explanation of your results.
02) Connect the Dots.
Next, we help you see what your results are telling you. Each of your biomarkers is interconnected, so your analysis is unique to you. We’ll show you how everything is working together and raise a red flag if your results indicate potential health risks.
03) Personalize Your Habits.
By knowing about what’s going on inside of you, you can take steps to support better metabolic processes. We’ll direct you toward evidence-based habits to help you thrive and give you talking points to discuss results with your physician. Not only will you get on the path to feeling better—you’ll also be working toward preventing and reversing disease.
