The Genesis of Health

BrainSpan® provides the only test to meaningfully allow you to unlock your quality of life and through specific lifestyle and nutritional recommendations, reduce total cellular inflammation and improve resilience to infectious diseases, effects of stress, and mitigate or prevent functional loss of the brain due to aging.

 

How? We measure and track cell structure and cell function across your lifespan to clearly demonstrate how your lifestyle and fatty acid profile are connected to your cellular health. We then build a personalized set of clear actionable steps that will improve the most fundamental metrics of health.

Two Tests in Each 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

A First-Line, Wellness Diagnostic Device

Step 1:

DRIED BLOOD SPOT

First, you will perform a simple finger stick and collect a few drops of blood on a piece of specially treated filter paper.  

Step 2:

COGNITIVE FUNCTION

Next, a 15-minute, web-based cognitive test will evaluate your brain functional areas. All you need is a computer and internet connection.

Step 3:

ENGAGE AND TRACK

Optimizing your cell health improves brain function and unlocks the true health potential inside each one of us. Understanding that is game-changing.

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.
    Cell Health = Quality of Life

    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."
