As an icon of the youth, Shreyas Iyer has always kept himself physically fit and has been an advocate of using technology to get the best out of life. The Ultrahuman M1 has helped him identify the diet that works for his body, which has helped him improve his training, better off-season weight management, and in-competition performance. Shreyas Iyer has the daily insights on glucose levels, his metabolic health, powerful insights on his food and activity that allow him to plan his day better, with future tours being scheduled around the world.

Ultrahuman is an advanced metabolic fitness platform; built on an app and supported by a wearable patch, the “Ultrahuman M1”, users are able to track their metabolic health whilst getting intelligent nudges based on glucose biomarkers. This helps people optimise their exercise, sleep and nutrition based on deep insights from the platform. The M1 tracks the wearer’s metabolism as they go about their day and triggers timely nudges to the user such as alerts to a high blood glucose event and suggestions to take a walk for optimising their glucose levels.

In addition to Iyer’s sports performance team, Ultrahuman has made available a team of sports scientists and coaches who are working closely with him to empower him with intelligent data-driven modifications to his routine and training.
