The application provides users with peer supported challenges to improve mental health, physical fitness, wellness, sleep, and diet. The application uses genetic information submitted from 23andMe to help make the challenges more personalized and effective.
Inspiring behavior change in others can be very hard to do. We all know this because we were all stubborn teenagers at one point. However, there are some companies driving behavior change very effectively. They are using fun and engaging games to bring about enhanced mental attention, improved cancer treatments, and much more.

In 2012 Nelli, some talented developers, and a pair of geneticists combined forces to create Health Puzzle – an interactive health application platform for the iPad that offers personalized, mobile healthcare services based on the user’s own genome, as well as environmental factors and medical history. A year later, Nelli is back with Health 2.0 to show off the Health Puzzle’s app that utilizes health tracker data and genetic data to offer its users exciting, healthy challenges.
