THE SCIENCE

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?

Weight Gain

From metabolic abnormalities to blood sugar imbalances and more, there can be many biological reasons for weight gain.⁵ ⁶ ⁷

Mood Changes/Depression

Studies show that insulin resistance is tied to 2x greater risk of developing depression. Our kit helps you learn how your body tolerates insulin. Proper insulin tolerance is an important factor in maintaining overall health.*⁴

Consistent Fatigue

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.¹ ²
