Whether you’re still thinking about purchasing your Baze Starter Kit, waiting for your results to come back, or reading through your published Nutrient Report, we wanted to give you a breakdown of some of the things you can expect from your personalized results.
If you don’t have your Nutrient Report back yet, feel free to explore our Demo Nutrient Report while you’re reading through this blog.
How do I find the actual numbers?
- You can see the measured level of each nutrient in your blood. On your account page menu, click “Report”.
- Then you should see a list of nutrients.
- Click on each of the nutrients to see your numbers and what it means.
- On the left-hand side of the spectrum, you can see both your actual nutrient level and the deficient, normal, optimal, and excess ranges our experts have set.
- On the right-hand side of the spectrum, you can see the deficient, optimal, and excess categorization.
- Below the spectrum, you can see the test that was performed to determine your actual nutrient level.
What does each category mean?
There are 5 possible zones your blood nutrient levels can fall in, and it’s different for each nutrient based on the latest scientific evidence.
- Deficient: Your blood nutrient level is lower than ideal. Targeted nutrients may be helpful (through personalized supplements and specific foods).
- Normal: You may be on the low or high end of normal—both are good.
- If you’re on the low end of normal, you may be recommended a low dose supplement to bring your level up to optimal.
- If you’re on the high end of normal, you may be able to adjust your diet to reduce your intake of a particular nutrient, depending on the nutrient.
- One thing that sets us apart is that we don’t just want your levels to be normal, we want them to be optimal.
- Baze Optimal Zone: This is the sweet spot of blood nutrient ranges and where extensive research points to the greatest health impact. If you’re here, congratulations! This is the area we want all of your nutrients to be in for optimal long-term health and well-being.
- Excess: Don’t fret! High levels of a certain nutrient can mean many different things. For example, it’s common for us to see high levels of vitamin D in the summertime or high levels of zinc due to sunscreen use. Ultimately, we recommend speaking to your primary care provider to learn more about how an excess nutrient level may or may not affect your overall health.
What do the scores mean?
Your Baze Score is an overall percentage out of 100 that tells you how close your nutrient levels are to the optimal Baze Zones. This is calculated using each individual nutrient score. The goal is to be as close to 100 as possible, and we’ll give you the tools to get there.
- Click Report to see your Baze Score.
- If you’ve had multiple Nutrient Tests, you can also see your history and progress over time.
We’ve looked into which nutrients play key roles in several different vital areas that impact your health. You can click on each vital to learn more about your score, what nutrients contribute to it, and what you can do to improve it.
It’s important to keep in mind that there are many different things—such as medical history, other biometrics, diet, and exercise— that can impact each vital aside from just nutrients—we’re looking at only one area (your nutrient levels) with these scores.
