APOB predicts HEART DISEASE much better THAN CHOLESTeROL

It has been established for almost 20 years that ApoB is a better predictor of heart disease than LDL cholesterol. We make it easy to check both, along with ApoA1 and HDL (good cholesterol).

Investors include :

What is ApoB?

ApoB is a structural protein, found on all potentially atherogenic (or plaque-forming) particles [1]. So an ApoB blood test is a direct measure of the concentration of all atherogenic particles, including LDL cholesterol as well as other cholesterol markers

CHECK YOUR APOB

Normal ApoB levels

Normal ApoB levels (40-120 mg/dL) can indicate healthy cholesterol transport and clearance. ApoB levels towards the higher end of this range may begin to indicate suboptimal cholesterol clearance.

CHECK YOUR APOB

Connection to heart disease

Studies show that high ApoB levels are associated with an increased risk for atherosclerosis (plaque build-up in the arteries), which, when left untreated, increases the risk of heart disease. 

CHECK YOUR APOB

The Importance of ApoB Testing

Natural ways to reduce ApoB

Reduce Foods High in Saturated Fats

Reduce foods high in saturated fat: Eating foods high in saturated fat is associated with elevated ApoB levels. Aim to reduce intake of red and processed meats to support ApoB levels. [4]

Opt for sources of unsaturated fats

Unsaturated fats, also known as “healthy fats” support optimal cholesterol and ApoB levels. Aim to incorporate unsaturated fats like olive oil, avocados, and flaxseed to support ApoB levels. [5, 6, 7]

Eat fiber-rich foods

Eat fiber-rich foods: Fiber is an important nutrient that contributes to optimal cholesterol levels and is critical in supporting ApoB levels. Oats and beans are two excellent food sources of soluble fiber—and research suggests that regular consumption of these foods is effective at lowering ApoB levels. [8, 9]

Try out a new supplement

Certain supplements can also benefit your ApoB levels. Studies show that taking a psyllium husk or plant sterol supplement can reduce elevated ApoB levels. Other supplements like artichoke extract and spirulina are also studied for their impact on ApoB. [10, 11] Always consult with a healthcare professional before adding a new supplement to your routine.

Testosterone is the primary male hormone responsible for sexual health and development, in addition to other physiological functions. Having proper levels of testosterone is essential not only for males but for females, too. An imbalance of testosterone can have negative effects on both reproductive and overall health. In men, testosterone regulates sex drive (libido), bone mass, fat distribution, muscle mass and strength, and the production of red blood cells and sperm. Symptoms of low testosterone may include reduced sex drive, erectile dysfunction, low sperm count, and other emotional and physiological changes.

Homocysteine

Elevated homocysteine levels can increase cardiovascular risks. Keeping homocysteine in check supports long-term heart health.

Homocysteine is one of the amino acids that play a role in the metabolism of proteins. Too much is toxic, and too little results in metabolic problems. High homocysteine levels are associated with elevated cardiovascular risk including coronary artery disease, heart attacks, blood clots, or strokes, and neurological disorders such as dementia. A 3µmol/L drop in homocysteine can lessen the likelihood of heart attacks by 16%, strokes by 24%, and deep vein thrombosis by 25%. A 5µmol/L decrease in homocysteine can reduce the risk of death from all causes by 49%, death from cardiovascular disease by 50%, and death from cancer by 26%.

The hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) is representative of your average blood sugar levels over the past 2–3 months, providing a snapshot of your ability to maintain healthy blood sugar over time. When sugar enters your bloodstream, it attaches to hemoglobin, a protein in your red blood cells. Everybody has some sugar attached to their hemoglobin, but people with higher blood sugar levels have more. The A1C test measures the percentage of your red blood cells that have sugar-coated hemoglobin. Hyperglycemia—the chronic state of having high blood sugar—is known to adversely affect many organ systems. An HbA1C level consistently above 5.6% may indicate pre-diabetes and a level above 6.5% may indicate diabetes.

Cortisol is a hormone synthesized and secreted by the adrenal glands of the kidneys that plays a major role in regulating stress, metabolism, and immunity. It follows a diurnal rhythm that is affected by sleep- naturally rising in the early morning and falling in the evening. High cortisol levels are an indicator of acute (sudden), chronic (long-term), and/or traumatic (life-threatening) stress. Results outside the normal range might indicate a dysregulated circadian rhythm or a more serious health condition.

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a hormone produced by the body's adrenal glands. The body uses DHEA to make androgens (like testosterone) and estrogens, the male and female sex hormones. If your DHEA levels are not normal, it may mean there is a problem with your adrenal glands or sex organs (testicles or ovaries). High DHEA in women may be the cause of acne, menstrual irregularities, excess body and facial hair, scalp hair loss, and increased muscularity. Men may not have any apparent symptoms of high levels. Low DHEA levels are associated with a decreased sex drive, erectile dysfunction in men, and thinning of vaginal tissues in women. Severely low levels may be a sign of an adrenal gland disorder with more serious symptoms. The adrenal glands start to produce less DHEA as we age. By age 60, we only have one-fifth of the amount of DHEA in our blood.

Insulin is a hormone secreted primarily by the pancreas that is mainly responsible for regulating blood glucose levels. After eating, insulin is released to move blood sugar (known as glucose) from your bloodstream into your cells. Insulin plays a key role in keeping glucose at the right levels. If glucose levels are too high or too low, it can cause serious health problems. High levels of insulin is indicative of insulin resistance, prediabetes, and type 2 diabetes (T2D). High insulin is strongly strong linked to heart attack and stroke. Elevated fasting insulin is also strongly linked with the risk of breast cancer, melanoma, and colon cancer. Longevity is associated with people who have lower insulin levels.

High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) is a nonspecific inflammatory marker. It is particularly suited to testing for chronic inflammation (long-term, low-level), as opposed to ordinary CRP, which measures acute (short-term) inflammation. Chronic inflammation contributes to the development of at least 7 of the 10 leading causes of death in the United States. It may go undetected for years or even decades without proactive tracking, silently threatening your health. It contributes to cancer, heart disease, lung disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, chronic kidney disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and irritable bowel syndrome. It is also connected to metabolic disorders, including pre-diabetes and diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure.

Anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) is a valuable biomarker used to assess a woman's ovarian reserve, which reflects the quantity and quality of her remaining eggs. AMH is produced by small follicles in the ovaries, and its levels correlate with the number of these follicles. Measuring AMH levels helps predict a woman's fertility potential and can aid in diagnosing conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), where numerous small follicles are present, or premature ovarian insufficiency (POI), where the ovarian reserve is depleted prematurely. While AMH provides valuable insights into egg quantity, it's important to note that it doesn't directly assess egg quality or guarantee successful pregnancy. Other factors, such as age, overall health, and sperm quality, also play significant roles in fertility outcomes.

SHBG

While primarily known for stimulating breast milk production after childbirth, prolactin plays a broader role in women's health. It influences menstrual cycles, fertility, and even mood. High prolactin levels, a condition known as hyperprolactinemia, can disrupt ovulation, leading to irregular periods or infertility. It can also cause inappropriate milk production (galactorrhea) and contribute to mood changes or sexual dysfunction. Measuring prolactin levels helps diagnose hyperprolactinemia and guide treatment, which may involve medication or addressing underlying causes.

DHEA-S ♀

Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEA-S) is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands with various roles in women's health. It contributes to energy levels, libido, and bone health. DHEA-S levels naturally decline with age, and low levels may be linked to fatigue, mood changes, and decreased bone density.

Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEA-S) is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands, playing a multifaceted role in women's health. It contributes to energy levels, libido, and bone health. DHEA-S levels naturally decline with age, particularly after menopause. This decline can be associated with various symptoms, including fatigue, decreased libido, mood changes, and reduced bone density, increasing the risk of osteoporosis. While the benefits of DHEA supplementation are still being researched, maintaining healthy lifestyle habits can help support DHEA-S levels and overall well-being as women age.

Estradiol ♂

Estradiol, often considered the primary female sex hormone, also plays a crucial role in men's health. It contributes to bone health, mood regulation, and healthy cholesterol levels. While men produce lower amounts of estradiol compared to women, maintaining a balance with testosterone is essential for overall well-being.

Estradiol, often referred to as the primary female sex hormone, plays a crucial role in men's health as well. While men produce lower amounts of estradiol compared to women, it contributes to several important functions, including maintaining bone health, regulating mood, and promoting healthy cholesterol levels. Maintaining a balance between estradiol and testosterone is essential for overall well-being in men. An imbalance, such as excess estradiol, can lead to issues like gynecomastia (breast enlargement), erectile dysfunction, and decreased libido. Monitoring estradiol levels can provide insights into hormonal health and guide appropriate interventions when necessary.

Prolactin ♂

Prolactin, though often associated with female lactation, is also present in men. It plays a role in sperm production and sexual function. Elevated prolactin levels in men can lead to erectile dysfunction, infertility, and decreased libido.

Prolactin, often associated with female lactation and reproduction, is also present and active in men. It plays a role in sperm production and sexual function. However, when prolactin levels become elevated in men, it can disrupt the delicate hormonal balance and lead to various issues. High prolactin levels can cause erectile dysfunction, infertility due to impaired sperm production, and decreased libido. Identifying and addressing the underlying cause of elevated prolactin, which may include pituitary tumors or certain medications, is crucial for restoring hormonal balance and improving men's reproductive and sexual health.

FSH ♂

Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) plays a crucial role in male fertility by stimulating sperm production in the testes. FSH levels help assess testicular function and can indicate potential causes of male infertility.

Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) is a key player in male reproductive health. Its primary role is to stimulate sperm production in the testes. FSH works by signaling the Sertoli cells in the testes to support and nourish developing sperm cells, ensuring a healthy sperm count and quality. Measuring FSH levels is crucial in assessing male fertility and diagnosing potential causes of infertility. Elevated FSH levels can indicate impaired testicular function or damage, while low levels may suggest problems with the pituitary gland or hypothalamus, the areas of the brain that control hormone production. Understanding FSH levels helps guide further investigations and appropriate treatment strategies for male infertility.

PSA ♂

Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a protein produced by the prostate gland. Elevated PSA levels can indicate various prostate conditions, including inflammation, enlargement, or prostate cancer. Monitoring PSA levels aids in early detection and management of prostate issues.

Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a protein produced by the prostate gland, a walnut-sized gland located at the base of the bladder in men. PSA levels in the blood can provide valuable insights into prostate health. Elevated PSA levels may indicate various conditions, including prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate), benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH, or enlarged prostate), or prostate cancer. While not all elevations in PSA signify cancer, monitoring PSA levels over time is crucial for early detection and timely management of prostate issues. Further investigations, such as biopsies or imaging tests, may be needed to determine the specific cause of elevated PSA and guide appropriate treatment strategies.

Albumin ♂

Albumin is a protein produced by the liver, playing a vital role in maintaining fluid balance and transporting substances throughout the body. In men, albumin levels can help assess overall health and nutritional status, as well as liver and kidney function.

Albumin is a protein produced by the liver, playing a crucial role in maintaining fluid balance within the bloodstream and transporting various substances, including hormones, vitamins, and medications, throughout the body. Measuring albumin levels in men can provide valuable insights into overall health and nutritional status. Low albumin levels may indicate malnutrition, liver disease, kidney disease, or chronic inflammatory conditions. Monitoring albumin levels helps assess the severity of these conditions and monitor the effectiveness of treatment interventions. Maintaining healthy albumin levels is essential for overall well-being and proper bodily functions.

Free Testosterone ♂

Free testosterone (fT) represents the small portion of testosterone not bound to proteins in the blood, making it readily available to exert its effects on the body. In men, fT levels influence libido, muscle mass, bone density, and overall energy levels.

Testosterone, the primary male sex hormone, exists in two forms in the blood: bound and free. Free testosterone (fT) represents the small portion not bound to proteins, making it readily available to interact with cells and exert its effects on the body. In men, fT levels play a crucial role in various functions, including libido, muscle mass and strength, bone density, and overall energy levels. Low fT levels can contribute to symptoms like decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, loss of muscle mass, and mood changes. Measuring fT levels, along with total testosterone, helps assess hormonal health and guide appropriate interventions to restore hormonal balance and improve men's well-being.

Is a few drops of blood really enough?

That's right! A few drops of blood is all we need to test 17 biomarkers. Sounds too good to be true? Far from it...

Our sample collection card, the ADX100[1], is an alternative collection method, similar to an SST tube. Red blood cells are separated without a centrifuge, enabling the laboratory to perform tests on dry blood.

Are results accurate? Yes! We process samples in a 3rd party CLIA-certified lab. The test results have been cross-validated against standard finger prick and venous draws.

CHECK YOUR APOB

Can I really collect my own sample?

Each kit contains a sample collection card, three adjustable lancets, band-aids, sterile gauze, an alcohol pad, and instructions.

Drawing your blood sounds scary at first. Especially if it's your first time doing it. We've taken the time to make the instructions as easy to follow as possible.

Not only that, every customer can schedule a live one-on-one session with our certified phlebotomist for FREE (a person trained in collecting blood samples).

CHECK YOUR APOB

Ok, my results are in. What now?

This is the best part! After processing your sample, we create a complete report for each of your 17 biomarkers

You can then access your reports from your personal reports dashboard. Each report comes with an easy-to-understand graph and personalized insights you can use to improve each biomarker.

The dashboard lets you connect your favorite wearables to make your reports even more insightful. Improved sleep and activity scores are highly correlated with improved hormonal balance and lower inflammation in our user base.
