Calorie Mama AI will include genetic data that provides new insights on BMI predisposition, Omega-3 fatty acid needs, the effects of saturated fat and sugary beverages on body weight, gluten sensitivity, muscle type and strength, aptitude for power versus endurance activities, and risk of ACL and other sports injuries, thereby enabling the creation of more personalized and more effective meal and workout plans for weight loss. “Our vision for Calorie Mama AI is to usher in the next generation of personal wellness apps that would make healthy living easier than ever before,” said Tom Xu, Co-founder of Azumio, “by adding genetic insights we provide an additional layer of personalization to ensure that every user receives an experience that is as unique as they are.”
Calorie Mama AI’s DNA-based insights are available on the newly launched Helix marketplace, along with a diverse range of DNA-powered products focused on ancestry, entertainment, family, fitness, health and nutrition. To get started, users visit Helix.com to purchase Calorie Mama AI’s DNA-based personalized meal and workout plans for $189, which includes a saliva collection kit and one-time DNA sequencing cost of $80.
