Personalized supplements are leading a change in the way we address nutritional deficiencies, by replacing assumption with scientific fact. Learn how Baze tests nutritional needs on a case-by-case basis, because your health is worth more than a hunch.
For a long time, personalized nutrition was considered the realm of the professional athlete. In the quest for the win, elite and professional athletes were prescribed customized vitamins and personalized dietary supplements while the rest of us relied on good old-fashioned guesswork.
Not any more.
Baze was created to bring personalized nutrition to the everyday athlete. The busy professional hosting a conference call on the morning commute. The hard-working mom mentally ticking off her to-do list on the school run. And yes, that competitive athlete pushing themselves to the limit in the pursuit of a podium finish.
Baze’s sole aim is to help you feel your best every single day, so that no matter what you’re doing, you’re equipped to give it your best shot. And achieving your personal best leaves no room for guesswork. It’s about time nutrition got personal.
Your nutritional needs aren’t one-size-fits-all
Nutrition is one of the most critical factors influencing our short and long-term health and well-being, so it’s a given that eating ‘well’ is a good starting point. But how do we know if the food we eat is giving us the nutrients we need, or if we’re deficient in something? It’s hard to tell exactly, which is why so many of us take multivitamins as a kind of cure-all just in case.
The problem with that is, not all vitamins and supplements are created equal. Concentrations and quality vary significantly, and for business reasons, multivitamins are typically developed and sold as mass-market products, which requires one-size-fits-all dosing.
What’s more, too much of a nutrient can be just as bad for health as too little, and taking one nutrient supplement could impact the effectiveness of another. So, even with a healthy diet and the best intentions, you could inadvertently be doing your body damage.
Vitamins work. Standardized dosing doesn’t.
One simple belief informs everything Baze stands for: your nutritional needs are yours alone. It’s not rocket science – your genes, your activities, your stressors, your environment and your current diet are unique to you. They change from one week or one season to the next. That means what works for one person won’t work for everyone else. To choose the right nutrients, you need to know what’s going on inside your body.
At Baze, we don’t guess or assume your vitamin deficiencies, we test them. Then we analyze this data to determine the nutrients your body needs and ship them to your home. We ensure you can “rightdose” your nutrients based on your specific needs. And retesting quarterly gives you confidence that these nutrients are doing what they should, ensuring you can hit your day-to-day goals.
Nutritional supplements, minus the guesswork
In the nutrition field, new research is helping us to understand the relationship between genetics, environment and lifestyle that impacts health. As complex as the genetic factor is, the environmental and lifestyle factors – the air we breathe, the soil our food grows in, “toxic” stress or relationships – are more complicated still. That’s why your test report will reveal how your nutrient levels combine to address your individual health and wellness priorities. That includes energy, immunity, sleep and mood, fertility and libido, and many others.
The Baze Starter Kit includes the vitamin deficiency test, your detailed report, and one month of personalized daily vitamin packs. And there’s one sure-fire way to know if it’s working, because if the customized supplements provided aren’t helping, your nutrient balance won’t change. The success metric here is clear improvements in your health – absolutely no shot in the dark necessary.
