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.

While we humans share more than 99% of our DNA, tremendous diversity exists among us when it comes to our unique microbiome, the cornerstone of our health and the "second brain" of our bodies. Fad diets fail to address this individuality, leading to a dead end when it comes to being able to identify the root cause of the symptoms we experience.
If you want to get the most out of your microbes, it’s important to know what foods are actually healthy for you and what foods you may be surprised to learn have been the reason for your discomfort or declining health.
The foods we recommend on each list are based on the function of your microbes. The goal of your recommendations is to help your microbiome stimulate the production of healthy nutrients that your body needs right now and minimize the toxins being produced which may be causing inflammation inside your body.
With Viome, you can fine-tune the function of your gut microbiome with a personalized diet in order to lower inflammation in your body, increase your energy, and improve your overall well-being.

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.
