Bloom January Update

Our first group of Beta users have been incredibly helpful in providing feedback to make the Bloom experience even better for future users (like you!). Based on their feedback, we’ve been able to implement improvements to block out bad test results and generate more accurate results as well as enhance the overall user experience in the app itself.

We are introducing new tests!  As we mentioned above, we’re working diligently to add more tests to our test cards to ensure our users have the most comprehensive profile on their vitamin and nutrient levels. A few tests we just added:

Potassium:
Helps regulate fluid balance, muscle contractions, and nerve signals. A high-potassium diet may help reduce blood pressure and water retention, protect against stroke, and prevent osteoporosis and kidney stones.

Calcium:
Your body needs calcium to build and fix bones and teeth, help nerves work, make muscles squeeze together, help blood clot, and improve heart function.

Mercury:
Too much mercury exposure can cause serious health problems and may have toxic effects on the nervous, digestive, and immune systems.

Lead:
Lead exposure may cause cardiovascular effects like increased blood pressure and incidence of hypertension, decreased kidney function, and reproductive problems in both men and women.

Zinc:
Helps your immune system and metabolism function. It is also important for wound healing as well as your sense of taste and smell.

Creatinine:
Reveals important information about your kidneys. High levels of creatinine in your urine can indicate diabetes, high muscle tone, or kidney problems.

Stay tuned for more exciting updates as we get closer to launch!
