Why glucose is key to good health

At January, our mission is to increase the world’s “healthspan”—the number of years we remain in good health, free of chronic disease. Research continues to show that managing blood sugar is core to the cause, driven by its ability to regulate weight, cholesterol, inflammation, and so much more.

Now, for the first time, the January app harnesses powerful AI technology to help you better manage your glucose and build the habits that lead to a longer, healthier life.

January’s impact

Grounding ourselves in the science of behavioral psychology, we’ve helped nudge users toward small behavior shifts that work best for them. As a result, we’ve seen thousands of users benefit from improved glucose control, weight loss, and more.

The key behaviors we shift

1
Intermittent fasting
2
Increasing fiber consumption
3
Aligning calorie intake with activity level
4
Getting post-meal movement
5
Reducing glucose-spiking foods
