Regenr8 is a company we work with that developed an Epigenetic Biomarker Profile test to assess where your body is lacking in essential vitamins and minerals, hindering proper expression of biochemical pathways. The test determines the impact of your environment based on your unique gene function by identifying various metabolites based on the metabolic and enzymatic cellular process. 

The test will show an assessment of overall cellular energy production, methylation activity, vitamins, inflammation and oxidative stress, sleep markers, muscular performance, gut dysbiosis, amino acids, and neurotransmitters. Based on your test results, they create an all-natural, organic, and plant-based superfood that you are able to drink daily to ensure your body is getting the nutrients it needs.
