By Tim Hinchliffe July 29, 2016

EverlyWell, a provider of online health tests, releases three new test kits to check users’ heart health, metabolism, and inflammation levels.

EverlyWell provides at-home health tests that you can order directly through their website. The company ships the kit to your home and after sending your sample to an EverlyWell lab, you receive your clear results online within a few days.

“We are excited to introduce these three panels that empower consumers with knowledge about important health biomarkers like cholesterol, vitamin D, and thyroid function,” says EverlyWell CEO and co-founder Julia Cheek. “Each of our test panels are designed to provide meaningful information on specific health issues, and we are excited to introduce these kits that make testing so easy and actionable for consumers.”

In addition to the three new heart, metabolism, and inflammation level health kits, the company provides affordable testing for food sensitivity like gluten at a fraction of the cost of going to a traditional doctor’s office or clinic.

Whereas traditional blood work for food sensitivity ranges up to $1K, EverlyWell’s physician-authorized and CLIA certified at-home test is $199 while these normally cost $1,000 at a traditional clinic. Women’s fertility and health kits are at $399, and its element panel is again at $199.

The personalized medicine market is predicted to hit a global worth of $149 billion by 2020, driven by a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.74%. In the US alone, the direct to consumer testing market is already worth $500M and growing at 20% a year. EverlyWell’s vision is to provide convenient, accessible tests to consumers with results that they can understand.

“Our mission is to empower consumers with easy access to health data,” said Cheek. “By creating an innovative consumer experience around health and wellness testing, EverlyWell has transformed testing from a cumbersome, confusing process to an easy and meaningful user experience. We provide health data and clear results to the person who matters most in the testing process – the individual.”
