At Rootine, we’re on a mission to empower everyday people to leverage their data to achieve optimal health. We use technology to connect the dots between your health data and nutrition solutions that are ideal for you.

Why stress?

The White House Administration has described the nation as experiencing an “unprecedented mental health crisis.” The majority of adults are suffering from stress: 76% report experiencing at least one symptom and 1 in 4 adults reported that most days are so stressful they can’t function. Within our members [60%] experience elevated daily Stress.

Stress has a direct correlation with physical and mental health. Our body’s natural stress response is effective for short bursts of time, but problems arise when we are chronically stressed. Chronic stress continually triggers the body's stress response, keeping us in fight-or-flight mode longer than the system is designed to support.

“Stress is at the root of most health problems people are facing today: anxiety, depression, fatigue, sleep problems, brain fog, digestive distress and more. Healing your stress response heals your body.” - Sarah Morgan, MS Clinical Nutrition, Head of Nutrition Innovation at Rootine

How you experience stress is incredibly personal, so solutions need to be tailored to the individual and people are searching for solutions. In Google’s annual “Year in Search” report shows that searches focused predominantly around mental and physical health, specifically getting stronger physically and how to manage mental health issues like stress and anxiety. Searches including keywords like “coping” and “managing” were a common trend, but at Rootine, we want to offer more.

“Together, we can go beyond coping and managing. We’re creating a world that is empowered to optimize both their physical and mental health.”

Today, we introduce our Precision Stress Program - a hyper-personalized solution to take control of your stress at-home including:

  • quarterly cortisol testing
