Rootine unlocks better health and daily performance for members by leveraging precision nutrition. Rootine's first product focuses on optimizing cellular nutrition through a precision-personalized daily micronutrient membership and a unique digital experience where members can track and improve health. Rootine is differentiated in its test-take-track process, unmatched data and insights, and unique delivery form factor (microbeads). Rootine is helping thousands of members improve their health, from professional athletes and celebrities to high performing individuals around the U.S. Founded by Rachel Soper Sanders and Dr. Daniel Wallerstorfer, PhD in 2018, the company is building a remote-first team of leading scientists, engineers, and brand marketers with headquarters in Nashville, TN.
Before Rachel Sanders and Dr. Daniel Wallerstorfer met, they were both determined to optimize their own health and performance from different sides of the Atlantic. Daniel - a PHD, biotechnician, nutrigenetics expert, author, and founder - was busy building Europe’s leading genetics lab. Rachel, an ex-investment banker and recent HBS grad, was in the midst of founding her first company. Both fighting stress and fatigue. Both searching for better nutrition solutions. Both unimpressed by the status quo. Together, they did something about it.
Driven by a common mission — to empower millions to leverage their data to achieve optimal health — they came together to start Rootine, a precision nutrition startup rooted in science and data, combining technology, precision nutrition, and data science to help people track and improve their health.
