We identify and quantify the living microorganisms in your gut microbiome, analyse what these organisms are producing, and provide you with personalised nutrition recommendations that help you optimise your gut microbiome.
Did you know that scientists can look at your gut microbiome composition and tell with 90% accuracy if you are obese or lean? Scientists have also discovered that certain gut microbes help shape your body and keep obesity at bay which means if you're having trouble losing weight, your microbiome could be the culprit.
If good sleep is eluding you, your gut may have the answers. Several species of bacteria may actually contribute to your body's supply of melatonin, which influences the sleep-wake cycle.
If you think the brain is doing most of the talking, think again. It turns out the microbiome has a lot to say. Through the use of neurotransmitters, hormones, proteins, and other communication factors, your gut can send messages directly to your brain. Your microbes influence how you feel, your emotions, and your happiness in a very real and tangible way.
Gas, bloating, and other common digestive issues can be caused by an imbalance in your microbiome. Determining which foods cause your tummy troubles is a tedious process and just because you identify a food or two that induces bloating, it doesn’t mean you’ve corrected the underlying problem. This is because gas and bloating can occur when levels of microbial byproducts such as methane and hydrogen ramp up.
When your gut microbiome is off balance it can cause inflammation and outward reactions that show up through your skin. This imbalance is called dysbiosis and has been linked to all sorts of skin conditions such as: acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, and more.
Your gut has been shaped your entire life by such things as how you were birthed, to what kind of milk you drank as an infant, how much sleep and exercise you get, your level of chronic stress, and by what you’ve been ingesting—food, drink, and medication. All of these factors are unique to you. For this reason, your unique set of gut microbes needs a unique set of recommendations so that they can help you.
Register your kit, collect your sample, and complete your questionnaires.
Send your sample off to our state-of-the-art laboratory for analysis.
Your recommendations are delivered right to you through your Viome app, tablet, and computer.
While we humans share more than 99% of our DNA, tremendous diversity exists among us when it comes to our unique gut microbiome, the cornerstone of our health and the "second brain" of our bodies. Because no two people digest food the same way, a food that may be healthy for one person may cause inflammation in another.
Analysing the function of your microbes allows us to identify what metabolites they're producing so we can provide food recommendations that are right for your body.
The foods we recommend on each list are intended to help your microbiome stimulate the production of healthy nutrients that your body needs right now and minimise the toxins being produced which may be causing inflammation inside your body.
Get to the bottom of what foods are right for you and discover how optimising the activity of your gut can dramatically improve the condition of your health.
Not only is Viome able to identify and quantify the living microorganisms in your gut, but more importantly, we are able to identify what these organisms are actually producing and whether or not it is causing your body harm.
Our science involves two revolutionary pieces of technology:
The healthcare system today is reactive and set up to suppress symptoms. We believe that the focus should be more on the cause. We are a passionate team of researchers, scientists and entrepreneurs focused on having the most complete understanding of the human body on a molecular level, targeting the underlying cause of illness and empowering every human to take ownership of his or her own health. We started with the microbiome, the body’s richest source of microbes, because of its impact on nearly every chronic disease.
We are now the world’s first company to offer CLIA certified RNA sequencing technology. Your microbiome analysis is performed in a US laboratory that is certified to meet CLIA standards—the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988. A CLIA certified lab must meet certain quality standards and ensures the accuracy and reliability of your results.
To ensure the confidentiality of your data and your results, we separate users' personally identifiable information (PII) from protected health information (PHI) and use multiple layers of encryption and access protection. We do not provide your information or results to employers or health insurance companies. Viome will never sell your data.
