[Blood] What You Will Learn

Many factors influence how a nutrient works in the body. Our metabolite test determines how 10 nutrients are functioning in order to guide initial nutrient dosing and adjust the dose over time. This analysis also reveals insights into other aspects of metabolism, like mitochondrial function, detoxification status, glucose metabolism, and protein intake and utilization.

  • Guides dosing of 10 nutrients in your daily packs:
    • Vitamin E, B6, B9 (folate), and B12
    • Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, and Iron
    • Alpha Lipoic Acid and CoQ10

TECHNOLOGY

About The Blood Test

The test is completed in ~5 minutes at your home. All that is required is a painless finger prick and dried urine sample. Mail the samples back to our lab (postage included) and you are done.

Metabolites are byproducts of nutrient metabolism. Our test analyzes 80+ of these byproducts and can determine if you are receiving the nutrient benefit (or not), regardless of the nutrient level.

The test is analyzed in our licensed medical genetics laboratory certified ISO 9001, 15819, 22000.

US vs. THEM

Metabolite Test vs. Traditional Test

Traditional blood testing shows how much of a nutrient is in the blood, referred to as the "blood level" of said nutrient.

However, many factors influence how a nutrient actually functions in a body. While knowing your blood levels is better than nothing, it only reveals how you compare to the population standards, not how the nutrient is working in your body. Your optimal range for each nutrient could be considerably higher or lower than the norm.

Metabolite testing takes a personalized approach and shows you the dose required based on what is going on within your body, not based on population studies that you were not a part of.

We're Glad You Asked

What will the blood test tell me?

Blood data is great for determining initial nutrient dosing and also for tracking how nutrient levels change over time, which is valuable information used to adjust doses and learn how nutrition therapies or lifestyle changes impact your health. Our metabolite test does the same thing, but we track nutrient function instead of nutrient level.

Already have blood nutrient test results from another source, like a physician? Easily upload the data into your Rootine dashboard.

Why have I never heard of metabolite testing?

Metabolite analysis has been used by the medical community for some time; however, it was too expensive in the past to be offered as a consumer product. It's an extremely complex test that analyzes 80+ metabolites via mass spectroscopy and there are only a few labs in the world that have this capability. Thankfully, our lab is one of them and we're able to bring this exciting technology to you.

I already have blood data, can I upload?

Yes, as long as the blood data corresponds to nutrient levels (we cannot process other markers, like cholesterol or hsCRP) you can manually upload these values in your dashboard and they will be used to guide nutrient dosing. Simply complete the free lifestyle quiz, enter your dashboard, and enter the values that you have (if you don't have all of values that is not an issue). More info can be found in our complete FAQ.

How long does it take?

From the time our lab receives your test kit, analysis can take anywhere from 3-5 weeks based on the quality of your samples. You'll receive an email when analysis is complete and your Rootine dashboard will include your results and recommendations.

Is my blood data private?

Your data is 100% private - plain and simple. Rootine is not in the business of selling personal data or using it for any purpose other than making sure that your body gets the precision nutrition it deserves. Our industry-leading genetics laboratory is governed by some of the strictest data and medical privacy laws in the world.

We're Glad You Asked

What will the DNA test tell me?

The cheek-swab DNA test analyzes 52 gene variants that are scientifically proven to impact nutrient needs. The report will show you which of these genes work well and which don't. You'll learn which nutrients you need more of or less of, and which nutrients will will be helpful vs potentially harmful.

Already have Ancestry or 23andMe results? Easily upload that data into your Rootine dashboard and skip the test!

Why is Rootine better than other vitamins?

Rootine is 100% customized using your DNA, blood levels (optional), and lifestyle data and based on 300+ independent scientific research reports. Our microbeads are easy to take and contain no fillers (goodbye horse pills), super convenient to travel with, and - best of all - our customers love the way they feel after taking Rootine!

PLUS: you'll learn so much about your body from the detailed nutrition reports + detailed genetic analysis in your dashboard.

How does the optional blood level test work? 

Most doctors, clinics and labs can easily order a blood nutrient test for you, plus we've partnered with a leading at-home blood testing company and have an exclusive discount for Rootine members. All it takes is a quick finger-prick and you can order the test yourself, no doctor required. In your dashboard, you'll input the test results (we've made it easy) and the formula in your next shipment of Rootine will automatically adjust based on your most current nutrient levels. This allows Rootine to adapt over time and change with you as your nutrient needs change.

How long does it take?

From the time our lab receives yourDNA or Blood Nutrient Test, analysis can take anywhere from 3-5 weeks based on the quality of your samples. If you've already taken a test from another provider (contact us for a list of approved partners), you can skip the wait by easily uploading your data in your dashboard and processing will occur (~48 hours). Once analysis is complete for either option, you can expect your vitamins to ship within 2 weeks.

Is my DNA / quiz /  blood data private?

Your data is 100% private - plain and simple. Rootine is not in the business of selling personal data or using it for any purpose other than making sure your body gets a safe and effective dose of vital nutrients. Our industry-leading genetics laboratory in Austria is governed by some of the strictest data and medical privacy laws in the world.
