Our Story

Jon Carder, a serial entrepreneur and the founder of Vessel, started noticing some surprising symptoms as he got into his 30’s — lower energy, brain fog, trouble sleeping — and how they interfered with his ability to be his best self, both professionally and personally. Determined to solve these “problems”, he went to the doctor. After a lot of complicated (and expensive) lab work, Carder and his doctor identified nutrient deficiencies, high toxins levels like mercury and adjusted his supplements and nutrition accordingly. Within a month, he was feeling the best he had felt in years but was disillusioned by how complicated and expensive the process was.

He realized the way he, and many others felt, wasn’t a “growing old” problem but an access problem. With Vessel, he was determined to change that mentality by arming people with affordable and easy at-home wellness testing to manage their wellbeing and optimize their energy, brain function, sleep, fitness, immunity, and appearance. And it’s just the beginning.

Your best is yet to come
