What’s New at InsideTracker

For serious athletes who are looking for a non-fasting blood test with key markers to help them reach their personal best, InsideTracker is proud to offer the High Performance Plan.

The blood test most commonly ordered by doctors is the CBC or Complete Blood Count. Although doctors use the CBC to look for problems, this test measures a set of blood biomarkers that can reveal your overall health status. That’s why we’re excited to announce that we’ll be adding the CBC to InsideTracker’s Ultimate blood test. DIY users who input their own test results will also be able to add their CBC data. Everyone will receive optimal zones and recommendations for optimizing their results. For more information about the CBC test, read our blog.

The InnerAge Plan measures 5 key biomarkers that contribute to aging so that you can see your real age from the inside out! In addition to these biomarkers, your InnerAge also depends on your body composition and physical activity. It's a snapshot of your inner self.

Your Dashboard is a tool that helps you choose the most effective changes that you can make to help you reach your selected goals. These changes in food, exercise, supplements, and healthy living habits are your roadmap success and you can see them every day on your personal Dashboard. For more information, please see our blog post.

InsideTracker is partnering with Dynacare Laboratories to offer InsideTracker plans in Canada. However, we are currently only able to offer our White Glove Service at-home testing for these plans; not in-lab testing. For more details, see the Store page.

The Basics

  • A personalized series of blood tests to establish a baseline, to compare your results to benchmarks, and to track your progress for key scientifically proven biomarkers for health, wellness, and performance
  • A continuously updated tracking of validated scientific research and integration into the InsideTracker engine
  • A web-based subscription service with personalized, actionable recommendations (nutrition, exercise, supplements, lifestyle)
  • Personalized dashboards and online tracking tools

InsideTracker measures key biomarkers selected by our scientists for their relevance to athletic performance and well-being. These biomarkers, refined from a list of 3,000, include: albumin, ALT, AST, calcium, Complete Blood Count (CBC) panel of 15 biomarkers, cholesterol, cortisol, high sensitivity c-reactive protein, creatine kinase, DHEAS, ferritin, folic acid, GGT, glucose, HDL, hemoglobin, LDL, magnesium, potassium, serum iron, SHBG, sodium, TIBC, total testosterone, free testosterone, transferrin saturation, triglycerides, vitamin B12, vitamin D and white blood cell count. For more information about the biomarkers tested in each InsideTracker plan, visit our Store page.

We continually monitor the scientific literature and consider new biomarkers to add to our plans.

  • InsideTracker gives you important information you won’t get in an annual blood test, the critical difference being the in-depth, personalized analysis we provide when measuring blood biomarkers key to overall well-being and athletic performance. Your physician will mainly test biomarkers related to disease; InsideTracker tests markers related to health and performance.
  • Although InsideTracker is not a medical professional or a substitute for visiting a licensed medical professional, InsideTracker tells you if your levels are optimal, not just normal. The proprietary algorithm, B.R.I.A.N., or Biomarker Research Integrative Analysis Network, integrates into your blood analysis an “optimal zone.” The optimal zone is a range specific to each person that takes into account unique demographic information including age, gender, ethnicity, and activity level, as well as lifestyle and performance goals.
  • Within days after your blood test, you will have online access to your analysis and evidence-based nutrition, exercise, lifestyle, and supplement recommendations for how to improve your biomarkers. Your doctor, on the other hand, may just send you a card in the mail that says whether your results are "normal" or not.

We believe in the importance of visiting your doctor. We encourage you to share your InsideTracker experience and results with him or her as part of your overall medical plan.

Please go to Demo.

  • InsideTracker recommends having a follow-up InnerAge, Fitness, Performance, High Performance or Ultimate blood test done every 2-6 months to measure your progress toward your goals. You can save on the cost of follow-up blood tests by purchasing an InsideTracker InnerAge, Fitness, Performance, High Performance, or Ultimate Plan with 2 or 4 blood tests. For more information, visit our Store page.
  • The Home Kit is so simple and easy to use, that we recommend you re-test monthly to keep close track of your markers.

Science/Algorithm

All of our optimal zones and recommendations are based on peer-reviewed scientific literature that is updated on a continuous basis. Please go to Science to learn more about the science behind InsideTracker.

The InsideTracker algorithm, B.R.A.I.N (Biomarker Research Analysis Integrative Network), determines optimal zones for each of your individual biomarkers. These optimal zones are personalized based on the latest peer-reviewed scientific research, as well as on your unique demographic and lifestyle information. For example, the generic normal range for a man’s level of ferritin, a blood marker for iron, is between 30 and 400 units. However, InsideTracker recommends that a male athlete in his 20s should have a more specific optimal zone of ferritin between 50 and 150 units to achieve optimal performance.

The algorithm, B.R.I.A.N (Biomarker Research Integrative Analysis Network), determines optimal zones for each of the individual biomarkers. These optimal zones are personalized based on the latest peer-reviewed scientific research, as well as on your unique demographic and lifestyle information. For example, the generic normal range for a man’s level of ferritin, a blood marker for iron, is between 30 and 400 units. InsideTracker recommends that an athlete in his 20s should have a more specific optimal zone of ferritin between 40 and 150 units to achieve optimal performance. B.R.I.A.N also suggests scientifically based nutritional interventions to optimize levels of each biomarker based on the user’s unique profile.
