Glucose is essentially our primary energy source. So, when we can see in real time; not an hour later, or a month later, or a year later, we can see in real time – based on what we’re doing, what we’re eating, how we’re sleeping – we can dial in things much quicker and get that feedback loop much faster. That’s the power of real-time data. – Kara Collier

Kara Collier is the co-founder and Director of Nutrition at NutriSense – a leading personalized nutrition company that uses new technology to monitor the body and create personalized diets and optimized fitness routines.
