Advanced Home Kit Option Comes to InsideTracker!

By Perrin Braun, September 4, 2014

 

Thanks to your feedback, we’ve learned that InsideTracker customers want to know more about advanced biomarkers, such as CRP and cortisol. So, we’ve created an upgrade from our Basic Home Kit, which measures Cholesterol, LDL, HDL, Triglycerides, and Glucose, to the Advanced Home Kit, which measures 7 key biomarkers that are essential to health and performance, including Vitamin D, Cortisol (a marker of stress), CRP (a marker of inflammation), and others.

Using the Advanced Home Kit, you can easily collect your own blood sample anywhere at any time, then ship the sample to us to find out your results.  More importantly, when you receive your blood analysis, you will also learn how to improve your out of-range biomarkers, your general health, and your performance.

The Advanced Home Kit option is designed to be as simple and user-friendly as possible! Here’s how it works:

Fast overnight for accurate results. You can drink water, but don’t eat anything. Do the test in minutes without leaving your home. It’s an easy, and nearly painless, finger prick that takes just 12 drops of blood. Seal the test sample in the prepaid UPS envelope and ship it back to us.

After the lab analyzes your blood (which takes about a week after you ship the blood sample back to us), InsideTracker generates analysis and recommendations for your biomarker results. The Advanced Home Kit is a convenient option that gives you flexibility in scheduling when you want to take a blood test, but more importantly, it provides you with access to powerful and sophisticated InsideTracker online analysis and recommendations. Unlike the Basic Home Kit, the Advanced Kit is available worldwide, so international customers can take advantage of all that InsideTracker has to offer.

What information does InsideTracker provide with your results?

Graphs showing you how your blood results compare to your personalized optimal ranges based on your age, gender, ethnicity, athletic activity, all based on peer-reviewed scientific publications (exclusively available from InsideTracker) Graphs showing your progress over time based on follow-up blood tests Explanations of the role that each biomarker plays in your health and athletic performance (all based on peer-reviewed scientific publications, including links to the original paper) A unique food plan that is customized to fit your individual needs and preferences, extracted from a database of 7,500 unique food items. Lifestyle, exercise, and supplement recommendations for improving biomarkers that are out of your optimized zone (all based on peer-reviewed scientific publications, including links to the original paper)

For $299, each Advanced Home Kit measures key biomarkers related to metabolism, inflammation, stress, bone and muscle health, and performance, including:

Cortisol CRP Cholesterol High-density lipoproteins (HDL) Low-density lipoproteins (LDL) Triglycerides Vitamin D

For all these biomarkers, most doctors will simply tell you whether or not your results are “normal.” Clinical data demonstrate that while an individual might be in the “normal” range for specific blood-test parameters, optimizing the parameters can significantly improve physical performance and well-being beyond what “normal” levels can achieve.  InsideTracker’s cutting edge algorithm, called BRIAN, integrates into your blood analysis an “optimal zone,” a range specific to you that takes into account your unique demographic information including age, gender, ethnicity, and activity level, as well as your lifestyle and performance goals. InsideTracker gives you simple interventions for nutrition, exercise, supplements and lifestyle to help you move your biomarkers into your optimal zone and reach your peak performance.
