Erectile Dysfunction Is Affecting More Men Than Ever. We're Here to Help.

By Gil Blander, PhD Dec 07, 2017

We all know how the commercials go: 1) a pair of bathtubs face the sunset (which we have so many questions about), 2) a deep voice-over warns us about erectile dysfunction’s ability to ruin the perfect moment, 3) you pray that you won’t end up a slave to the blue pill. But you don’t have to be a silver fox like the ones on TV to suffer from erectile dysfunction (ED). In fact, it’s more common in younger men than you’d expect.

A study from 2013 found that 1-in-4 men seeking treatment for ED were under the age of 40.1 We're guessing you don’t want to be on the wrong side of that statistic, so keep reading – we’ve gathered some valuable information about how to avoid and/or counteract its onset.

InnerAge: How One Simple Number Ignites the Change You Need

By Gil Blander, PhD Jan 14, 2015

My name is Gil Blander and I am the co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer of InsideTracker, the company behind InnerAge. My scientific journey started at the age of 12, when one of my close relatives passed away,  triggering my thirst and quest for knowledge of how our body ages. While I knew I couldn’t stop the clock, I wanted to at least slow it down and give people the knowledge required to delay the aging process and improve their health and quality of life as a result. I decided to commit my life to science, and aging research in particular.

I graduated from the Weizmann Institute of Science with a PhD in the biology of aging, and later became a postdoctoral scholar at MIT in Lenny Guarente’s Laboratory for the Science of Aging. I wanted to do more than study methods on how to slow the aging process; I wanted to decisively apply scientific knowledge and help everyone live life to its full potential. In 2009, InsideTracker was born. Our talented team of scientists decided to develop a new, one-of-a-kind science-based platform that could make the future of personalized health analytics happen now. Objective, rich, scientific data at the service of the individual to support truly tailored decision making.

Fueling the Athlete: Bones, Blood, and Biomarkers

By Gil Blander, PhD Oct 31, 2014

On the eve of Halloween, we witnessed season-ending injuries for many teams in the NBA. Injuries often prompt players themselves to come to InsideTracker and get tested with our Ultimate panel. Two years ago when we were testing professional baseball and Superbowl-bound players, we thought that organizations would be driving changes in elite sport. We were wrong: individual players and coaches are the ones taking initiative with personalized nutrition and monitoring. Being in the heart of Cambridge, Massachusetts we expected a disruption, but not as fast as we are seeing it. Private coaches are fast taking advantage of our new InsideTrackerPro system to manage and monitor the internal biochemistry of their teams.

Fueling the NBA: It’s the Advice, not the Device

By Gil Blander, PhD Oct 22, 2014

The many, fulfilling years we at InsideTracker have spent working with elite athletes and coaches have led us to redefine our focus from the “device” to the “advice.” It is not about the latest gadget that we can get our hands on, but it’s about how we use the advice from it to initiate change, both for teams and for individuals. I was very pleased to see a recent article on biometric testing on the ESPN website, but blood analysis is no longer about interpretation; rather, it’s about the actual interventions behind it.

Re-testing Guidelines: What You Need to Know

By Gil Blander, PhD Sep 24, 2014

A popular question that InsideTracker users ask is when to re-test. We see testing frequency as a spectrum, ranging from the elite athlete, where even slightly outside-of-optimal results can mean the difference between a win and loss, to the casual InsideTracker user who only needs a check in now and then. Regardless of where you stand, we generally recommend re-testing 3 to 4 times per year. Another part of the re-testing process is the decision around which panel is most appropriate, and whether up- or downgrading is advised. Our experience working with teams, businesses, and individual consumers drives what we recommend for re-testing.
