“I freaking love Rootine. It’s probably my favorite company I’ve ever worked with. Their product is brilliant and I don’t say that just because I’m sponsored by them! It is just a great idea all around! They take your blood, run your DNA, see what your nutrient levels are, and formulate a daily multivitamin specifically around those numbers. It’s brilliant. It works. Why buy some generic random multivitamin when you can get it tailored specifically to your needs? The people in the company are great also and very professional.”
