Blood Test for Sports Performance
Improving your performance has never been as easy. The athlete's biological passport finally accessible to all, from just a few drops of blood.
Improve your performance
Most athletes will tell you so : diet is a pillar of physical performance. Get recommendations regarding not only the length and intensity of your workouts, but also for a diet supporting your training regimen.
Our collection kit includes all the necessary material for the easy collection of 4 drops of blood, namely a dedicated blood collection device, two lancets to prick your finger, two alcohol pads, two gauze pads, two bandages and one prepaid return envelope.
32 performance biomarkers
Our Sport Performance Profile analyzes strength and recovery hormones (testosterone, cortisol, etc), endurance markers (magnesium, carnitin, etc), essential inflamation-fighting molecules (omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, etc), and a full panel of amino acids including BCAAs for the development of muscle mass and strength.
LysineImmunityEnergyBones and skin
Lysine is an essential amino acid needed for the formation of protein and the production of enzymes, hormones, elastin and collagen (a structural protein that strengthens bones, skin, and blood vessels). It is also involved in energy production, immune function and wound healing.
Signs of deficiency
Poor concentration and fatigue

Amino acids are the components of proteins. There are 20 of them and 9 of them are said to be essential, i.e. the body is not able to manufacture them. It is therefore important to ensure sufficient intake through the diet. Amino acids are involved in muscle development, skin, hair and nail renewal, hormone and antibody production, and the transmission of nerve messages.
Fatty acids are the components of fats. There are several families of fatty acids, all playing important roles: source of energy, brain development, proper functioning of the heart and immune system, composition of cell membranes, participation in the formation of hormones, etc.
Vitamins are essential because the body cannot produce them (with a few exceptions). They do not provide energy but are involved in many processes in the body, such as the formation of red blood cells (blood), the proper functioning of the heart, muscles, nervous and digestive systems. They also play a role in making DNA (the molecule that makes up our genes) and protecting our cells. Our body has limited reserves for some vitamins and in certain situations (stress, overwork, intensive sports, illness, etc.), our needs are increased.
Minerals do not provide energy to the body but fulfill essential functions, such as development and renewal of our skeleton, muscle and heart contraction, exchanges between cells, formation of proteins (e.g. for healing, immunity, oxygen transport in the body), transmission of nerve impulses, maintenance of acid-base balance, etc. Some minerals, known as trace elements, are only needed in very small quantities but are no less essential.
Hormones are chemical messengers manufactured by the body that are important for health but also for supporting athletic performance. They play an important role in the metabolism of macronutrients (carbohydrate, protein, fat) and influence the production of certain proteins, such as proteins for building muscle.
A quick and simple test . . .
We imagine a world where everyone has access to affordable blood testing, allowing them to take control of their health through actions destined to improve or maintain it based off of understandable and personalized information.
