  • Are Personalized Nutrition Companies Selling Personalized Nutrition?

  • In the 80’s and 90’s the best way to supplement your nutrition was to go to the supplement store in the mall and have a bodybuilder in a tiny shirt recommend products for you. It turns out that they’re not that knowledgeable about nutrition and generally make recommendations based on the products that have the highest commission rates. It was one size fits all nutrition. For obvious reasons those stores are closing and that model is dying.

    Then in the 2000’s there was the internet. Endless options and total analysis paralysis. How on earth is someone supposed to pick from the over 100,000 options on amazon? How do you know which vitamins and supplements you need? Which brand do you choose? The questions seem endless.

    So vitamin and supplement e-commerce companies made product recommendation engines. You enter a little info about what you’re looking for a why and it spits out products that would help. For some people and some conditions this is a good option - but only if you happen to have a problem that they have a product for. The problem is, these companies want to sell you something. No matter what, the product recommendation engine will tell you that they have the perfect product for you, regardless of if it’s a good fit.  So the shopping experience is more personalized but the nutrition isn't personalized- no personalized nutrition here...

    Then came the “personalized nutrition” companies like Careof, Andrew Weil’s Vitamin Advisor, Persona Nutrition and many others. They do a good job of presenting the experience in a way that makes it feel like they’re creating the perfect solution for you, but it’s really just smoke and mirrors. They’re basically using the same product recommendation engines from the internet 1.0 days but instead of recommending that you buy 5 bottles of pills they repackage the pills from those 5 bottles into daily plastic bag packaging. But again, they’re forcing everyone into around 20 - 40 standard off the shelf pill options. So really, their innovation is repackaging pills into daily packs - but is it really that hard to open five bottles…? Slow clap 👏  Again, the shopping experience is more personalized, but the nutrition isn't. No personalized nutrition here either...
