Our Story

Jon Carder, a serial entrepreneur and the founder of Vessel, started noticing some surprising symptoms as he got into his 30s—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.
