Nightingale Health is The Preventative Health Company.
Staying healthy is one of the top priorities in life. Our health has a profound impact on our quality of life, and it’s also strongly connected to the lives of those close to us.
Fortunately, up to 80 % of the common chronic diseases that shorten our healthy life can be prevented by simple actions in our daily lives. The difference in healthy years between the unhealthiest and the healthiest lifestyles can be as much as 40 years.
This is why Nightingale Health exists – to help prevent future diseases and maximize our healthy years.
We combine the power of our in-house developed, advanced blood analysis technology with unprecedented access to global health repositories and world-leading medical research. With this combination, we go beyond the traditional healthcare and wellbeing tools: We provide the scientific connection to multiple health and disease outcomes and the ability to predict future healthy years.
Understanding the future of our health and taking informed actions today is the key to lifelong health. We want to give people around the globe the power to be in charge of their health – and with it, help build a healthier world.
The company was founded based on scientific innovation: a blood test that can detect a wide variety of molecules from a single sample.
