Frequently Asked Questions

Getting a health assessment

What does Molecular You do?

Molecular You integrates your unique health data and lifestyle history with current science to bring you tailored and evidence-based information about your health. With a small blood sample, we analyze up to 4 biomarker categories in one single health report, such as your blood metabolites, environmental/dietary exposure, blood proteins, and genetics. We upload your report to your online account which includes your health data, highlights, and customized action plan. You can log in anytime to dig into your own unique molecular profiles, and track your action plan progress, using our interactive and user-friendly platform.

How can I sign up for a Molecular You health assessment?

It is easy to get started today! Just let us know you’re interested and our dedicated Customer Success team will guide you along your health journey. Or, get in touch with one of our partner clinics to purchase directly through them.

What is biomarker analysis?

We analyze thousands of “biomarkers” or “markers” to assess your health risks. MY results can include:

 

  • 25 thousand gene variants
  • 300 proteins, fats, & carbohydrates
  • and 60 metals, minerals, nutrients & toxins

 

A summary of your biomarkers can help you make decisions and take action proactively about your health. You have two types of markers in your results: Static (genetics) & Dynamic (all the rest). Dynamic markers have the potential to change based on your actions where your Static markers will not change.

How does Molecular You differ from other profiling services available?

Many companies now offer genetic testing which may indicate disease susceptibility, but may not paint a detailed picture of your unique overall health, wellness, and performance. Very few companies offer a combination of integrated dynamic biomarker assessment to supplement genetic testing, and help you better understand your complex biological systems. No other health service platform is this comprehensive and proactive.
