September 2016: Kenkodo Helps You Know Your Body Better

What happens inside your body when you start a fitness routine? How does a change in your diet affect your biochemistry? What can you do to get the best out of your body? In order to provide answers to these questions, Metabolomic Discoveries GmbH has developed Kenkodo, a personalized metabolomics testing service to help you know your body better.

Kenkodo connects a person’s lifestyle to the biochemical state of the body. Metabolomics is at the cutting edge of biotechnology. For the first time, it is now possible to get a holistic view of a person’s biochemistry, which is the inside mirror of a person’s level of well-being. Metabolomics has proven its success in scientific research and with Kenkodo, Metabolomic Discoveries is now bringing this knowledge to the public.

The principle is easy. Kenkodo users take a drop of blood and send it in dried form by standard mail to the lab in Potsdam. At the same time, using the Kenkodo app, individuals record lifestyle data, such as information about their health, diet, exercise and mood. They then receive biochemical information and its correlation with lifestyle information. This allows Kenkodo users to draw conclusions about the effect of their lifestyle on their health.

“By measuring and monitoring your biochemistry at regular intervals you can discover how your metabolism and your lifestyle interact,” says Metabolomic Discoveries CEO Nicolas Schauer.
