If you know anything at all about nutrition, you know that very few of us are getting all the nutrients we need for our bodies and minds to work at their best. One way to solve this problem is by taking vitamins regularly, but the generic multivitamins you can get at the grocery store are designed with a kind of one-size-fits-all approach, so the chances of you getting everything you need without anything you don't are low, to say the least. Enter Rootine, a personalized vitamin regimen that uses of cutting edge analysis to take into account your lifestyle, your blood nutrient levels, and even your DNA.

By signing up with Rootine, you're improving on your typical over-the-counter multivitamins in two key ways. First off is the somewhat disturbing fact that with most multivitamins, your body isn't even able to absorb most of the vitamins into your system as a result of flaws inherent in the usual oral delivery method and its poor bioavailability. When you take regular multivitamins, the sad truth is that a lot of the vitamins therein are flushed out of your body before it has a chance to absorb them. But Rootine's slow-release microbead delivery system is different. The microbeads get dissolved and absorbed over the course of 10+ hours so that not a single microgram of nutrition gets lost in the shuffle, and the result is your body gets everything it needs from Rootine without any vitamins wasted.

The second problem is more complicated. Thanks to a little thing called genetics, every human absorbs vitamins and nutrients differently, and anything that's on a shelf for general consumption can't hope to be an optimum source of vitamins. But Rootine uses a system of "nutrigenetics and metabolomics" that can exactly what nutrients your body needs and is capable of absorbing in which precise quantities.

Put simply, you take a DNA test and Rootine uses the results to create a vitamin regimen that is exactly tailored to the way your body absorbs vitamins, and which ones it needs most. The test includes analysis of more than 50 single nucleotide polymorphisms that have been proven to impact nutrient absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion, and receptor function. If you want to go all the way with Rootine, you can also opt for an even more sophisticated metabolite analysis that can determine how nutrients function in your body, revealing nutrient deficiencies that traditional blood testing misses -- and making your own personalized Rootine vitamin supplement that much more effective.

As you have probably already gleaned, the science that powers Rootine is pretty advanced. But on the user's end, it couldn't be simpler. You start by taking a quick, two-minute "lifestyle quiz" on the Rootine website. Then, Rootine will send you your cheek swab DNA test that you perform yourself and then send back. After that, Rootine runs their tests, analyzes your samples, and creates a custom report with nutrient dose recommendations, all of which is shared via their secure online customer dashboard, then it uses that same data to create your own personalized daily vitamin regimen.

So if you're ready to do your body a favor and forget about generic multivitamins, head over to the Rootine online store now and get started for just $2 a day for your first 90-day supply.
