In Brief

Nutrigene is using data from 23andMe genetic testing to help craft unique liquid nutrient elixirs for customers

It can be hard to know what your body needs, but one company is using DNA to create the perfect combination of vitamins and supplements for every customer. Nutrigene uses a lifestyle quiz to set goals and preferences, plus 23andMe DNA analytics to look for nutritional deficiencies. From there, the company analyzes the data to create unique liquid vitamin mixes to deliver to your door. Packages start at $85 per month, though it may cost more depending on specific preferences and goals.

Nutrigenetics as a field is still relatively new, with some experts arguing that, while there are scientific underpinnings, there isn’t enough data to see how effective the practice really is. After all, though DNA might point to where deficiencies naturally lie, diet and environment also have an effect on nutrient levels.
