4.Difficult diets implementation

Address the Challenges: Describe how your Vision will address the challenges described in the previous question.

Gene expression, gut microbiome, eating habits, lifestyle and medical status are personal identifiers that can be used as predictors for building precise nutritional plans

 Our solution is going to empower peoples to participate more fully in their own care and make the lives of clinicians far better. The point that is essential is recognizing that each human being is unique and they have different nutritional needs.


We develop the world's first free prevention tool through digital health platform for nutrition assessment. Using a patent-pending algorithm based on standard/personal nutritional needs, eating pattern and other data users can determine the exact quantity of food and supplements to cover nutrient deficiencies.


For deep personalization, based on nutrigenetic, microbiome and screening tests user can have a PERSONALIZED PREVENTION or THERAPEUTIC NUTRITIONAL SOLUTION.

High Level Vision: With these challenges addressed, now provide a high level description of how the Place and the lives of its People will be different than they are now.

The lives of the people will be different:

1) We provide exact quantities of FOOD/NUTRIENTS and SUPPLEMENTS intake to cover nutritional needs. 

2) We provide FREE access to "NUTRITION DEFICIENCIES ASSESSMENT" digital health platform for everybody. 

3) No need for daily data introduction. 

 4) No need to follow a meal plan, cook what you want using your food list intake recommendation.

5) Based on the recommended food list users can cover their nutritional needs, empowering them to be their own nutritionist. 

Full Vision: How do you describe your Vision for a regenerative and nourishing food future for your Place and People for 2050?

Technology is transforming the world and changes are fundamental, bringing new service(nutrition assessment) and products (genetic tests) in the market we forge closer relationships between nutritionists, clinicians and patients, allowing the implementation of a personalized approach.
