After identifying your gut’s composition, we look at how your microorganisms are functioning. Measuring the functions of the microbes—what their genes tell them to do—is hugely important, as scientists have begun to suggest that the function of the microbiome (what your microbes are doing) is more important than the composition (who's there) to overall health and disease outcomes. What we see goes a step beyond information about what the microbes can do in a hypothetical sense. We can tell you what genes are actually expressing.
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.
Focusing on boosting the beneficial and suppressing the harmful activities of the microbiome for 90 days offers just enough time to ensure a more lasting impact to your microbiome and your overall wellness. While some people do experience some immediate changes in as little as a few weeks after following Viome’s recommendations, you are your own best baseline.
To track your functional active microbiome changes, we suggest retesting several times a year or as often as needed.
Personalization is about regularly measuring and making micro-adjustments over time. This is exactly what Viome offers: your personal microbial GPS so that you can make informed decisions based on what's happening inside of you as you go through life.
