Thriva Advanced Blood Test
Thoughts: Amazing UX, right up until you have to take a sample – and then the whole thing is slightly undermined by the fact that you have to stab yourself and then milk your own finger. But the results are laid out in an easily understandable way, and its interesting to find out a bit about how everything is working in your body.

Thoughts: Easy to sample and send off. Like Thriva a really easy experience. But the turnaround time is crazy long – 6 weeks – so the initial excitement has worn off by the time your results arrive. Again, results are interesting to read, although most are based on likelihood (‘people like you are more likely to…’) so there were lots of traits in there that I didn’t recognise. It’ll improve with time – it’s a really interesting product.
Vitl – Essential One Personalised vitamins
Thoughts: Hard to work out the different between all the vitamins packages. But this one looked pretty good, and ticked off the vitamin deficiencies that were flagged in the Thriva test. Nicely designed and cool to have your own name on a vitamin pack in your medicine cabinet.
