The Genesis of Health

BrainSpan® provides the only test to meaningfully allow you to unlock your quality of life and long-term resilience to aging, neurodegenerative changes, inflammation, infectious disease, stress, and environmental toxins.

 

How? We pair cell structure with cell function to clearly demonstrate how your lifestyle and nutrition are connected to where your health and quality of life originates: inside your cells. We then build a personalized set of clear actionable steps you can take to improve and visually track the most fundamental metrics of health.

We Integrate Two Tests in Every Kit

Nutritional Biomarkers

  • Cell Omega-3 Index
  • Cell Omega-6 to Omega-3 Ratio
  • Cell Palmitic Acid
  • +28 other cell fatty acids

Brain Function Metrics

  • Processing Speed
  • Memory
  • Attention/Focus
  • Cognitive Flexibility

Because Our Health & Resilience Begins in Our Cells

Dried Blood Spot

CELL STRUCTURE

First, you will perform a simple finger stick and collect a few drops of blood on a piece of specially treated filter paper.  Then you mail in the card for processing within 5 days.

Cognitive Function

CELL FUNCTION

Next, a 15-minute, web-based cognitive test will evaluate your performance in areas to include memory, processing speed, attention, and cognitive flexibility.

Complete Report

NEW UNDERSTANDING

We believe change comes with a clear understanding of why it matters. Optimizing your cell health improves brain function and unlocks the true health potential inside each one of us.

The Benefits

Our highly engaging, personalized report allows you to track the most powerful and sensitive predictors of your functional health. Some of the benefits you will experience include:

  • Early insight into functional brain changes before they become apparent in traditional medical screening. 
  • Ability to lower total body inflammation that is at the epicenter of aging and chronic disease...and keep it in check.
  • Improved health and function of the immune system, the microbiome of the GI tract, and the metabolic health of cells throughout our body.
    A Cell Health Profile is a Quality of Life Predictor

    The average cellular health improvement in those using BrainSpan is over 70% in 90 days with a

    corresponding improvement in brain function of over 30%.

    The average Omega-3 Index in the US is about 4%. The optimal ratio based on many well published studies is 9%.

    The average ratio of pro-inflammatory nutrients to anti-inflammatory is 25:1. The ratio should be 5:1 or better.

    Excess carbohydrates are turned into palmitic acid, disrupting leptin signaling and increasing cell damage.

    Your ability to remember and recall information is vital to aging gracefully.

    Staying focused on tasks with a high attention to detail is important to productivity.

    Quickly understanding and accurately responding to information impacts our entire quality of life.

    BRAINSPAN® is a powerful health and wellness tool that was conceived during a deployment to combat while serving in the US Army. The key was not just prevention, but optimization and resilience. This only happens once we visually observe how our diet and lifestyle is connected to the health and function of every cell in our body, including those of our brain. No one should live their life today without knowing these numbers."
