Welcome to our Lifeforce review!

If you’re a fan of biohacking or personalized medicine, you may have heard of Lifeforce, the brainchild of Tony Robbins (yep, that Tony Robbins), doctors trained at Harvard Medical School, and health-focused entrepreneurs. 

Designed to help you better understand and improve your overall well-being—without taking unnecessary supplements or mindlessly following someone else’s protocol—Lifeforce is a digital health startup that involves diagnostic testing, telehealth visits with clinicians, and personalized supplement recommendations based on your bloodwork and goals.

If you don’t want to go the full diagnostic route, you can still purchase Lifeforce supplements directly on the site—but for any pharmaceuticals, you’ll need to go through the clinicians first. 

In this review, we mainly assessed Lifeforce’s supplement offerings but also included plenty of information about their membership and one-off diagnostic testing so you can make an informed choice about whether or not Lifeforce is right for you. 

With all things considered (and we considered quite a bit), we awarded Lifeforce an overall A- grade, with higher points for clinically researched and high-quality supplement formulations, good customer service, and an innovative approach to individualized healthcare.

How Does Lifeforce Work? A Look Into Personalized Medicine

Co-founded by motivational speaker Tony Robbins, Harvard Medical School-trained doctor Peter H. Diamandis, health entrepreneur Joel Jackson, and healthcare technology executive Dugal Bain-Kim, Lifeforce is centered around the premise of precision medicine—an innovative approach to healthcare that tailors treatment plans to the individual. 

With their one-on-one care, extensive diagnostic testing, and personalized supplement recommendations, Lifeforce aims to help people become proactive about their health challenges to extend human longevity and improve physical well-being in mid-life and beyond.

The supplement brand and telehealth medicine side of the company is largely based around a book of the same name—Life Force: How New Breakthroughs in Precision Medicine Can Transform the Quality of Your Life & Those You Love—written by Robbins, Diamandis, and Dr. Robert Hariri.  

According to the book, the goal of precision medicine is to extend your healthspan—the years of healthy life lived without developing chronic diseases—and improve quality of life.

Lifeforce does this by assessing biomarkers (many that a typical doctor does not commonly measure) and prescribing supplements, pharmaceuticals, or other prescription-based therapies like hormone replacement, peptides, and even semaglutide (AKA Ozempic).

The baseline blood test analyzes over 40 biomarkers in the body—ranging from micronutrients and metabolic markers to hormones and homocysteine)—conveniently drawn by a technician who comes to your home. 

After analysis, they match you with a board-certified clinician who specializes in functional medicine (with credentials like MD, DO [Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine], or PA [Physician’s Assistant) who creates a personalized, custom-built plan based on your goals, health challenges, and lab results.  

If you want to continue on your health journey, which includes additional telehealth visits and blood draws every three months, you can join the monthly membership for $129 per month—in addition to the initial discounted diagnostic testing rate of $349.

You can also do the 40-biomarker diagnostic for $549, which sounds like a hefty price, but considering just a handful of those tests alone would cost hundreds through your doctor, it’s not a bad deal. 

Plus, if you’re not interested in precision medicine, you can purchase supplements (called nutraceuticals) from the Lifeforce website without signing up for anything (although a membership will get you a 20% discount). 

Now that you’ve got the lay of the Lifeforce land, let’s dive into the details of our review.

Our Lifeforce Review

Every brand we review is assessed according to this set of universal factors—here’s how Lifeforce scored on each to earn them an overall A- grade: 

  • Quality (B+) 
  • Transparency (B+) 
  • Website Experience (A) 
  • Customer Service (A-) 
  • Value (B) 
  • Brand Value (A) 

Quality

Summary:

Grade: B+

The majority of the supplements had high-quality ingredients and formulations, but information on certifications, testing, and sourcing was lacking.

In this section, we take into account several quality-related factors, including:

  • Packaging and labeling
  • Quality of ingredients
  • Sourcing, manufacturing, and formulation
  • Product or facility certifications

Starting with the first point, we had no major issues with the Lifeforce nutraceuticals packaging or labeling, which were tightly sealed, and the labels prominently showed the supplement facts and ingredients. However, no child-proof lids were in place. 

The formulation and quality of ingredients were also great, as Lifeforce uses clinically researched compounds in the most bioavailable forms. 

For example, Lifeforce Peak NMN provides much more than just NMN (nicotinamide mononucleotide—a precursor to the vital coenzyme NAD+):

  • 375mg of β-NMN to support healthy aging and metabolic health
  • 660mg of berberine to support healthy blood sugar and immune system health
  • 200mg of white mulberry extract to support glucose tolerance
  • 5.7mg of spermidine to promote cellular function, autophagy, and healthy aging
  • 10.5mg of lithium orotate to support mood, brain health, and inflammation

Two ingredient quality exceptions were the Peak Defense powder for immune system health, which contains sucralose—an artificial sweetener we do not love to see in products—and the Vitamin D+K, which includes a truckload of “other ingredients” ranging from sucrose to shellac (which is derived from the secretion of the lac bug, by the way). 

However, the website contains zero information about their certifications and third-party testing—two details many supplement consumers like to know. 

We did find out by contacting Lifeforce that their products are manufactured in NSF, cGMP (current good manufacturing practices), and FDA-registered facilities, and the supplements undergo ISO 17025-certified third-party lab testing to verify purity, potency, and quality. 

This information certainly bumped up their grade, but we would love to see it displayed on the site. 

We also did not find any details about ingredient sourcing, with a few exceptions—for example,  the omega-7 comes from Provinal® highly refined anchovy and/or menhaden oil. 

Lifeforce Product Catalog

Lifeforce offers ten nutraceutical supplements in addition to their pharmaceutical options that require a membership and clinician prescription. 

As we’re mainly reviewing the supplements here, let’s take a closer look at some of their top offerings.

Transparency

Summary:

Grade: B+

Plenty of accessible information on products, policies, and “who we are” details bumped up the grade, but transparency on sourcing and testing is missing.

Transparency is important when it comes to a supplement brand—and while Lifeforce has very detailed information on the ingredients and blends used in their products, they are lacking in the “where do they come from and how are they made” side of things. 

They supply details on clinical research, product information, and benefits of each supplement, as well as bios for each co-founder and scientific advisor on the board. But, we could not find information on sourcing, manufacturing, or even certifications and testing (which we mentioned in the previous section). 

A gold star for supplement brands is when they include third-party testing results or Certificates of Compliance for each product, and we did not find that with Lifeforce. 
Regarding policies, it was easy to find the shipping and return policies in the standard footer area of the site—no issues there.

Website Experience

Summary:

Grade: A

The Lifeforce site is well-designed, visually appealing, full of information, and easy to navigate on mobile and desktop.

The Lifeforce website had no significant issues, as it’s clean, organized, and easy to navigate between the supplements, pharmaceuticals, and membership areas.

They also provide plenty of educational resources on their oft-updated blog, including articles on topics ranging from hormone balance to hair loss to heart and brain health.

Lifeforce Review Image 3

A minor drawback is that many people might mistakenly head to “lifeforce.com,” which is about the Life Force book. However, clicking on areas like “Nutraceuticals” or “Lifeforce Diagnostic” will take you to the right page for buying supplements or joining the membership.

Customer Service

Summary:

Grade: A-

Lifeforce offers two main customer service contact options, free shipping, and a money-back guarantee, but no replies were immediate.

Lifeforce’s customer service offers two main lines of communication—an email address and a contact box via the chat (no live chat option) that sends replies to your email.

While we were quoted a reply time of 24 hours, we actually received a helpful response reasonably quickly—about three hours after the message was sent. 

Lifeforce also has excellent shipping and return policies—they offer free shipping and a full refund if you are unsatisfied with a product, as long as you try it out for two weeks first. 

Although they don’t have a live chat option, the customer service replies were reasonably timed, and we love the free shipping and full refund if unsatisfied.

Value

Summary:

Grade: B

The elevated quality of the supplement formulations and the reasonable value for 40-biomarker diagnostic testing partly balanced out the high supplement prices.

In this section, we assessed the value of both the nutraceutical line and the biomarker diagnostic testing and membership plan. 

Starting with the supplements, there’s no getting around these being expensive. However, we give them credit for their unique, doctor-created formulations not found anywhere else, including the most bioavailable and clinically effective doses. 

This means that Lifeforce supplements are hard to compare to other brands—out of the ten supplements offered, the only one with the same ingredients as another is Vitamin D+K.

Even then, Lifeforce’s version contains a special type of vitamin D called ampli-D® that is clinically proven to raise vitamin D levels three times faster than other supplements. But let’s take a look at how Lifeforce Vitamin D + K compares to other brands: 

Vitamin D/K2 Supplement Cost 
Lifeforce D+K $60 for 60 servings
Sports Research D/K $23.95 for 60 servings
NOW D3/K2 $14.99 for 120 servings
Pure Encapsulations D3&K2 $33.60 for 120 servings 

As you can see, Lifeforce D+K is considerably more expensive—but if the vitamin D form is three times more bioavailable, is that worth it? 

Some of the other prices on Lifeforce nutraceuticals include:

Moving on to the diagnostics and membership, you can purchase solely the 40+ biomarker blood draw for $549, which includes:

  • Hormone panel: TSH, LH, testosterone, free testosterone, FSH, IGF-1, DHEA, estradiol
  • Metabolic health: Glucose, hemoglobin A1C, total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides, and 14 substances in your blood, including sodium, calcium, creatinine, potassium
  • Nutrient status: Magnesium, vitamin D, and homocysteine
  • Cardiovascular risk factors: Apolipoprotein B, lipoprotein A, and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein
  • Organ health, immune system, and blood: Hemoglobin, hematocrit, complete blood count, white blood cells, platelets, ALT and AST (liver enzymes), and PSA (for males) 

While we won’t look up the cost of all of these individual biomarkers (and prices can vary widely depending on your insurance), LabCorp estimates the cost of the following as:

  • FSH: $49 
  • Apolipoprotein B: $28-140
  • Homocysteine: $54-279
  • Free testosterone: $75-193

As you can see, each test can add up very quickly. Although it seems expensive, if you are looking for a comprehensive health panel, Lifeforce diagnostics would be the way to go. 

If you wanted to do the membership, which includes tracking your bloodwork and meeting with clinicians every three months, you get a discount on the diagnostics ($349 instead of $549), plus the monthly membership cost of $129. 

Again, this seems expensive, but if you are really interested in changing your health—especially if you are tracking a specific biomarker or health goal—the membership might be worth it. A one-on-one telehealth meeting with a credentialed expert and personalized recommendations would cost much more than the $129 if you went the functional medicine route. 

Plus, a membership will get you 20% off the supplements, which could be worth it if you are taking several. If you are only taking, say, the vitamin D+K supplement—then maybe not. 

Overall, Lifeforce’s supplements are certainly expensive—but we think that the (albeit high) cost of the 40-biomarker diagnostic panel and membership slightly balance it out, leading us to a B here.

Brand Value

Summary:

Grade: A

With excellent institutional knowledge and doctor-created supplements, benefit to public nutrition, and innovative products and healthcare approach, we gave Lifeforce an A for brand value.

Last but not least, this category takes into account how much impact a brand has in the world—from philanthropic efforts and public nutrition benefits to innovation and sustainability. 

Lifeforce scored high in many of these categories, including their innovation with their doctor-created nutraceutical line and precision medicine approach to healthcare, reinventing traditional medical procedures.  

Combining the nutraceuticals with their advanced biomarker testing, easy access to functional medicine clinicians and certified health coaches, and options for accessible pharmaceuticals, Lifeforce provides a great service to public nutrition by having these all under one (virtual) roof. 

While they don’t explicitly state if they have philanthropic or charitable initiatives, Lifeforce does offer a steep discount to active duty, reservists, National Guard, veterans, retirees, military family members, and first responders. 

They also scored high in the institutional knowledge category, as Lifeforce has many high-profile doctors on the scientific advisory board, including internationally respected physician Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford, Dr. Rudolph Tanzi, Dr. Kathryn Rexrode, and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Kunt Hong. 

While they are lacking on the sustainability front, we thought that the other subcategories here made up that, leading us to land on an overall A for brand value.

My Experience With Lifeforce

Cambria Glosz, a Registered Dietitian and writer at The Nutrition Insider, was one of the team members who got to test out the Lifeforce diagnostic testing and subsequent telehealth visit with a clinician—here’s how she said the process went: 

To start, they sent out a health questionnaire with plenty of questions about my health history, current goals, and general information about lifestyle. 

An at-home appointment was easily set up for a future date when a blood draw technician could come to your home (or office) to take the blood samples. Alternatively, you can go into a local lab if preferred. 

The blood draw was quick and seamless—done in about five minutes with minimal pain. 

They quoted the results being completed and analyzed in ten days, but I received my diagnostic report in just five days, after which it was time to schedule my 30-minute telehealth call with one of Lifeforce’s functional medicine clinicians.

Like the blood draw, scheduling the telehealth visit was quick and easy.

However, I received an email on the morning of the appointment saying it needed to be rescheduled.

While this was not an issue for me (and the visit didn’t require traveling to an office), I can imagine some people might be put off by the day-of schedule change. Plus, the same thing happened with my next appointment—it was canceled a few days before the appointment date and rescheduled to two days later. 

When I finally got my telehealth appointment (with Mary Stratos, ​​PA-C, IFMCP [Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner]), I found that it was helpful, informative, and packed a lot into 30 minutes. 

She went over, in detail, every one of my labs and what they measure or why they are important, my health goals and what I am looking to work on, and gave ideas for what to do in terms of lifestyle and supplements. 

The only supplement that I was recommended was Vitamin D+K, as my vitamin D levels were a little low. I liked that she did not push anything on me—not even their most expensive supplements—and the vitamin D was merely recommended.

Same goes for the membership—I received a few emails following my appointment asking if I wanted to join the membership program, but nothing was pushy or overly salesy.

Overall, I had a great experience with the Lifeforce diagnostic testing and telehealth visit and would recommend it to anyone looking to get a comprehensive look at what’s going on in their body and how to optimize it.

Lifeforce FAQs

Does Tony Robbins Own Lifeforce?

Tony Robbins, the renowned personal development speaker, is a co-founder of Lifeforce, along with Harvard Medical School doctor Peter H. Diamandis, health entrepreneur Joel Jackson, and healthcare technology executive Dugal Bain-Kim. 

Is Lifeforce Worth It?

Lifeforce could be worth a membership if you are invested in improving your health. If you are curious about your internal health, doing the diagnostic panel (which includes over 40 biomarkers, some of which are not routinely tested by your doctor) is a great deal when you consider how much each individual biomarker would cost. The supplements are on the pricey side, but their clinically backed formulations and focus on the best and most bioavailable ingredients somewhat balance it out. If you have money to spend on your health, Lifeforce could be considered worth it.

Do You Need To Join Lifeforce To Buy Supplements?

No, you do not need to join the Lifeforce membership to buy supplements; they are available to everybody. However, you cannot access their pharmaceutical line without becoming a member and meeting with a credentialed clinician.

What Is the Book “Life Force” by Tony Robbins About?

Tony Robbins wrote the book Life Force: How New Breakthroughs in Precision Medicine Can Transform the Quality of Your Life & Those You Love to introduce concepts of precision medicine and a biotech and healthcare revolution to the masses. Tony Robbins wanted to help everyone—from the world’s greatest athletes to the average person with the most common health challenges—to increase their peak performance, boost energy and strength, and live a more vital life with a longer health span. The result of Robbins’ life-changing journey, Life Force is full of information about how to support whole-body health, vitality, and human longevity.
