5 Reasons Why the Best Personalized Vitamins are Microbeads

Vitamins come in many forms – pills, capsules, liquids, powders, and our method, microbeads. There are many issues with the first four approaches. Pills and capsules do not allow for personalization of nutrient doses and fail to provide dosing essential to maintaining optimal nutrient levels. Liquids and powders present problems with nutrient stability, formulation stability, and absorption. The rapid delivery of nutrients through these methods can result in poor nutrient absorption and poor blood nutrient level maintenance.

Why Microbeads?

Microbeads solve these issues and set this method apart from capsules and other delivery methods. When it comes to taking care of our health, it’s important to look for products that are not only natural but also enhance the quality of our lives and health goals. This is why the makers of personalized vitamins and vitamin subscription services realize that providing their customers with more information on the products is a great way to do just that.

In today’s booming health and wellness market for personalized vitamins, companies are providing consumers with more information than ever before while making it easier for people to choose the right type of custom supplement for their needs. We will dive into five reasons microbeads are the best way to receive personalized vitamins and minerals and the many benefits associated with our personalized daily multivitamin subscription service.

1) Precise Personalization

Microbeads are one of the best ways to provide hyper-personalization. We provide every member with a precise formula that has been tailored specifically for them, which in turn helps them achieve their unique goals and micronutrient needs. Each nutrient can be dosed to the milligram or microgram using microbead technology. We take a look at lifestyle, genetic, and blood data to ensure that an optimal nutrient range is achieved and maintained for each person and his or her individual needs.

When it comes to vitamins and supplements, some people might be tempted by the lower cost associated with taking vitamins in the form of pills or capsules, as well as by the familiarity of taking these forms. Pills and capsules, however, don’t allow for personalization.

A standard dose of a nutrient is in your microbead pack with doses fixed for every single customer based on individual data. A personalized level of a nutrient is essential to keep you in the optimal range – one-size-fits-all pills cannot adjust for that. Our microbeads provide more than 700,000,000,000,000 possible nutrient combinations that are set at precise doses to best support your cells.

2) Optimal Nutrient Absorption

Micronutrients are formulated to gradually release nutrients into the gastrointestinal tract throughout the day, which provides for optimal absorption by reducing channel competition between contraindicated nutrients and spacing out the nutrients in the intestine. Fat-soluble nutrients are also released in the presence of fat, which increases absorption.

This delivery system solves the problem that pills, capsules, powders, and liquids run into – quickly depositing the full dose of a nutrient into your system. Not only can this result in nausea, it also reduces nutrient absorption, by not taking into account that some nutrients, such as zinc and calcium, use the same absorption channels and compete for absorption.

Micronutrients use a slow-release matrix that dissolves nutrients with an average rate of 10-12 hours. This ensures optimal nutrient absorption and takes into consideration the absorption channels that certain nutrients compete for.

3) Extended Blood Level Maintenance

Another reason microbeads are the better choice of delivering personalized vitamins is the way they help maintain optimal blood nutrient levels. Pills, capsules, liquids, and powders release nutrients into the bloodstream rapidly, resulting in a failure to maintain appropriate blood nutrient levels throughout the day.

Some nutrients, such as vitamin C, have mechanisms to regulate levels in the blood. Large elevations of nutrients in the blood are removed quickly.

Microbeads work by slowly releasing nutrients into the blood stream with a steady drip. This helps keep blood nutrient levels at an optimal range for a longer period of time, leading to better nutrient distribution and tissue saturation.

4) Added fiber

Microbeads provide between 4-8 grams of fiber per day through their slow-release matrix (depending on the member’s specific formulation and data).

Adding dietary fiber to your diet has been correlated to improved health. Fiber is an important part of a healthy diet because it improves digestion, aids in weight loss, and lowers cholesterol levels. Fiber also helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity [1].

5) Clean Delivery

Many supplements and vitamin packs contain other ingredients in the product, such as preservatives and artificial colors, dyes, and sweeteners.

Microbeads use the cleanest delivery system and natural ingredients, using only the raw nutrient + pharmaceutical-grade cellulose and starch (this comprises the slow-release matrix) + a sustainably-farmed beeswax coating.

Precision Personalization

Precision medicine takes into account an individual’s differences in genes, lifestyle, and environment to produce solutions that are uniquely tailored to a specific set of needs and goals, as determined by the individual’s data.

In the past few years, clinicians and researchers have become increasingly interested in using personalized nutrients as part of medical care. There has been considerable interest in using micronutrients to prevent and help treat chronic diseases. There is an increasing enthusiasm about vitamins and minerals ingested in supplements and the effects they can have on gene expression and metabolism.

How Rootine uses data and precision nutrition

Rootine uses a lifestyle quiz, DNA test, and blood test results and combines these numerous points of data that influence the final recommended dose for each nutrient to help you achieve your health goals and fit your nutrient needs.

Precision nutrition is the future of how we look at health. Your cells are built by your genes. Your blood is the environment your cells are in. Your lifestyle determines what you need your cells to do.

Rootine and Microbeads

Microbeads, with all the additional benefits stated above, are the best way to deliver clean and precise micronutrients to your body while ensuring optimal absorption and complete personalization customized to fit to your health and wellness goals.

Rootine analyzes all of these core data points to determine the exact micronutrients your cells need to create your most powerful self, and delivers custom, convenient solutions directly to your door.
