You can contribute to research and discovery.

We invite you to participate in The Personalized Nutrition for Wellness Study, an Institutional Research Board (IRB)-approved research program conducted by researchers at GenoPalate and leading academic institutions.


Poor nutrition is a leading cause of chronic disease.

Currently, two thirds of American adults and between 17-18 million children and adolescents are either overweight or obese. Many common chronic conditions including obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, certain forms of dementia and cancer are leading causes of death in the US. 


It is possible for these conditions to be managed or even reversed through improved diet and lifestyle.

Food is Medicine.

We believe that Food is Medicine, but the science behind how diet can be used to prevent, manage and reverse disease is still young. We are making it our mission to build a research collaborative that our customers can participate in.


As a valued customer, we invite you to be part of the solution by advancing the science of nutrition and chronic disease prevention.
