Your supplements, Personalized!
Looking to optimize your supplement use? Have you ever wondered what combination of supplements is the best fit for you?
Now with genetic testing, you can personalize your supplement plans based on your genes.
It's all science, no magic!
Just like fingerprints, our bodies are unique— from metabolism to personality. Now, we have access to the science and technology to identify many of our unique traits and design wellness plans for maximal benefit!
By taking a DNA Test, we examine your genes to discover whether you have a predisposition for deficiency in 17 essential vitamins — including vitamins A, C, D, E, K and B vitamins (such as riboflavin and folate). Once those pre-dispositions are confirmed, by utilizing latest advancements in science and technology, based on guidelines, we can estimate how much value you get from any of the supplements you use, or which combination of them gives you the best coverage of your needs.

Great! For time being, Product Collection is available to Silverberry users for free. All you need is to sign into your account and see the list of products collected for you.
Please note you need to have a DNA file and have ordered Vitamin or Nutrition package to be able to see the list of products matched.
Note on Nutrition Reports: If you have not ordered Nutrition package, we recommend to do it. In order to provide the most comprehensive recommendations possible, we rely on genetic assessments related to both vitamins and minerals — two subcategories within the Nutrition package. If you do not purchase the Nutrition package, you will receive product suggestions for individual traits within the vitamin trait cards, however, these will not be based on a comprehensive review of all available traits, only the single trait you are viewing.
Frequently Asked Questions
Everyone needs the essential vitamins and minerals. Back in the day, sailors on months-long voyages used to find out the hard way how vital these vitamins are. No vitamin C = scurvy. As a result of evolution, humans long ago stopped making these essential nutrients and outsourced the work to plants and animals. But the nutrient manufacturing got split across a wide array of plants and animals, so we are forced to eat a variety to get everything we need. Even today, many of us struggle to do so (Curse you, outsourcing)! Because the outcomes of nutrient deficiencies are so unfortunate, a great deal of research has been done to pinpoint how much of each nutrient we need. These recommended amounts are referred to as "Dietary Reference Intakes." [NIH]
To add another layer of complexity (thanks, nature!), our genetics can affect how much of the nutrients we need. Genes have been linked to an increased deficiency risk for nearly every essential vitamin and mineral. People with these genes are likely to need a bit more than the standard "Dietary Reference Intakes."
These two layers of information are combined to generate your personalized recommendations.
First, you should review your diet before taking supplements. If your diet is meeting your needs, it would not be wise to take any supplements. If your diet is meeting some of your needs, you should only take supplements containing the nutrients you struggle to get from your diet.
Second, not all nutrients are available in supplement form. For example, vitamin A (retinol) can be extremely toxic and is not usually available in OTC supplements. If you sort the product list by “Most Traits Covered” the first supplement listed will provide the most comprehensive coverage of your micronutrient deficiency risks — but some nutrients may be missing.
This is the percentage of your daily recommended intake that is provided by the supplement. The amount of each nutrient that you should consume daily is referred to as a “Dietary Reference Intake” (abbreviated DRI). The DRIs vary based on your age and sex. They represent the amounts sufficient to satisfy the needs of 97% of the general population. This value is functionally a minimum recommendation.
