You have your own unique history, genetic makeup, lifestyle, and goals that all factor into making your nutritional needs very specific to you.
So while doctors and nutritionists who don’t specialize in plant-based diets can make broad recommendations, you won’t know exactly which nutrients you need – until you gain Insight.
And we’re here to help you evolve with them.
Key micronutrients (B12, D, Omega-3, Iron) and Hemoglobin A1C.
Focused on inflammation, and lipids.
Live phone consultation with dietitian and unlimited in-app messaging with our nutrition team.
Nutrients and dosages based on your test results and reviewed by a Registered Dietitian.
Insight measures multiple nutrient levels and biomarkers in your body and helps identify where you may be out-of-range. From there, we’ll provide you with your own unique blend of nutrients based on your specific needs and continue to help optimize your health and performance.
Insight will identify your levels of:
Helps keep nerve and blood cells healthy.
Helps your body absorb calcium and phosphorus.
Transports oxygen through your body.
Aids in regulation of blood flow and inflammation.
Measures your blood sugar level.
As well as track key biomarkers related to lipids and inflammation:
Cardiovascular risk factor.
Marker of inflammation.
Blood flow and artery health.
The “good” cholesterol, indicates lower risk of heart disease.
The “bad” cholesterol, heart disease risk factor.
Risk factor for hardening of the artery walls.
Collect your samples for micronutrients, A1C, and biomarkers, and send them off to get processed at our third-party, CLIA-certified labs.
Receive your labs securely on the Complement Well app. You’ll get individual reports on different nutrient levels and biomarkers so you know exactly where you stand. A plant-based Registered Dietitian will also review your results to further personalize your nutrition.
Daily nutrient packets, precisely designed for you and reviewed by a Registered Dietitian, with dosages directly reflecting any nutrient gaps and flagged biomarkers from your test results. Your packets will always include the essential hard-to-get nutrients on a plant-based diet, based on your test results, with the option of adding on other extra enriching supplements (ie. Turmeric, Ashwagandha, Calcium).
Ongoing testing (every 6 months) allows our Registered Dietitians to make adjustments to your nutrient regimen as needed, and watch your health improve over time.
Access to nutritionists specializing in plant-based health, to help fine tune your nutrition intake and support you along the way.
A well-rounded, plant-based approach to nutrition is healthy and sustainable, but like every diet, it has its shortcomings. It’s widely known that plant-based eaters can have low levels of vitamin B12, vitamin D, omega-3 fatty acids, and other nutrients. So how can you be sure you’re getting enough?
We created the Complement Essential multivitamin to help solve the dilemma of how to get enough key nutrients on a plant-based diet, but we wanted to go beyond that and offer an individualized approach to nutrition.
Common signs of nutritional deficiencies:
Low energy - brain fog - hair loss - muscle cramping - sore joints - dry eyes - cold hands and feet - poor night vision - constipation - brittle nails
Why do vitamins and mineral deficiencies manifest in these ways?
Take omega-3s, for example. Without enough omega-3s, your brain can’t function at its best, showing up as symptoms like brain fog, low concentration, and memory loss. These essential fatty acids support proper blood flow to the brain, making sure our cognitive and memory functions are operating at optimal levels.
If you’ve been a plant-based eater for a while, you may have asked yourself some similar questions:
Why am I feeling so tired even though I’m eating a healthy plant-based diet?
Are all those nuts and seeds that I’ve been eating helping my heart-health?
How are my hair and nails still so brittle if I’m juicing every morning?
Are my current supplements giving me all the nutrients I actually need?
"Insight is a game-changer. I've been drawing vegan's blood test for over 30 years - every persona is different and needs something different.

“When I made the switch to a plant-based diet, it did not go smoothly. About 2 years in, I had low energy and poor focus, and just felt like something was off. Then my fingernails started to peel off…
That’s when I knew something was wrong.
I didn’t know how wrong until I visited my doctor and received a diagnosis of ‘systemic rheumatoid-like inflammation.’ He suggested that I get hormone therapy and most of all, he said that I needed to stop eating a vegan diet.
I’m a fairly stubborn person, so I dug deeper with micronutrient testing, and discovered that my plant-based diet was missing some key nutrients – namely Omega-3’s EPA and DHA, B12, and Vitamin D.
With this information I was able to make the necessary adjustments to my plant-based nutrition in order to get my nutrient levels to a safe and healthy place.
More recently, after having seen the benefits that testing biomarkers has brought to others, I decided to try this for myself as well. I found that I had high homocysteine (which contributes to heart disease) due to a genetic trait.
With this knowledge, and by optimizing my daily nutrient regime, I was able to lower my homocysteine levels by more than 30% simply by adding Alpha-lipoic acid for the past 3 months. (ALA is common in red meat and other foods that I don’t eat.)
This is the sort of active engagement, end-to-end personalization, and continual optimization that we’re now able to deliver to our community.
And that’s why we’re excited to share Complement Insight – so that fellow plant-based eaters can have the knowledge they need to thrive and the means to achieve it."
