Insulin is a key hormone released by your pancreas that processes sugar by allowing your cells to absorb sugar from your blood. If your blood sugar levels are too high, insulin can activate your liver cells to store excess sugar for later use.
One of our core tenants at Athletigen is that every person is truly unique. We are firm believers that one size does not fit all, and based upon what can be learned about someone from their DNA, we can develop one-size-fits-one offerings that are genuinely custom to the individual. That's why we're excited to work with our partner VitaminLab to offer you custom vitamins and supplements based on your DNA.
