Why our founders care about Nutrition
I spent my career in high-stress roles that require me to maximize the time I have — first as an investment banker and now as a startup founder and first-time mom. For me that means doing everything I can to stay healthy and ensuring I am performing at my best both mentally and physically throughout the day. Early on in my career I was suffering from burnout, fatigue, stress, and brain fog which hampered my ability to give my best everyday. As I had done in the past when looking to solve health concerns, I turned to nutrition and fitness as a way to get more about of my day when sleep wasn’t always an option - constantly iterating on products, exercises, and ways to fuel my body to add performance gains throughout the day.
- What I put into my body everyday matters when it comes to my work product, fitness gains, and the type of parent and partner I am able to be.
- Investing in self-care matters; the more you invest in taking care of yourself the better output you will have and investing early and often could help tremendously in the long term.
Dr. Daniel Wallerstorfer PhD
I suffer from a genetic condition that will require significant organ transplantation in the future which lead to my focus on harnessing genetic health data to build solutions to improve health and human performance and getting a PhD in biotechnology. I know that although my condition is not preventable, there are a number of genetic pre-dispositions that can be counteracted with lifestyle modifications and nutrition adjustments. From my 12+ years of experience building one of Europe’s leading biometric testing labs, I know that people are more than a single data point. When determining what is best for nutrition, we must look at all the ways people differ and identify key differences on a cellular level.
- There are consistent and significant ways in which people differ. If we (as a health industry) do not account for, embrace, and support these uniqueness's we cannot deliver optimal health outcomes.
- It is a complex process to determine and address unique biological needs. In order to support the most people, we must build easy-to-use solutions that people can trust and afford.
