Gut Intelligence

Your gut microbiome is linked to your weight, energy, stress, sleep, and immunity among many health areas. Our Gut Intelligence Test assesses your gut microbiome health to give you insights related to immune response, richness & diversity, gut lining health, gas production, digestive processes, and more.

Pay attention to the signals your gut microbiome sends you

Eating the wrong foods for your body can result in reactions we interpret as “symptoms”. Because no two people respond to all food the same way, these symptoms are different in everyone. Understanding what’s going on with your body is key to discovering what’s healthy for your body!

You’re home to a microbial world

While identifying the microorganisms in your gut can tell you what might happen, your microbial gene expression can tell you what is happening. Your microbial gene expression has a powerful effect on your body’s digestive and immune functions and much more. Viome assesses your microbiome to see how the activity of the microbes in your gut impact your body, which is key to understanding more about your health and the way you feel.

Viome’s Gut Intelligence™ gut health test assesses your microbial gene expression in order to determine:

  • How your current diet and lifestyle are impacting your gut health today

  • Why you are experiencing the symptoms you are experiencing and what foods could be the cause

  • What you can do about it through a more precise diet and supplement routine, designed for your unique gut microbiome


Focusing on gut health

Your High-Level Integrative Functional Health Score for Gut Microbiome Health is made up of 20+ supporting scores and pathway scores that reveal insights into gut microbiome including gut lining health, metabolic efficiency, your microbiome's ability to break down protein, and more!

Learn more about some of the scores you'll see in your app below:

Gut Microbiome Health Icon -  Gut Microbiome Health

Metabolic Fitness

Active microbial organisms and functions that are associated with your blood sugar, insulin resistance, or weight control.

Digestive Efficiency

A comprehensive microbial reflection of your gastrointestinal (GI) tract functions. The score consists of multiple activity patterns related to digestion and specific macronutrient breakdown ability.

Inflammatory Activity

A measurement of the activities of your microbes that can contribute to or reflect an immune response in your gut environment that can be caused by harmful things your microbes produce when you are either inefficiently digesting your proteins, have excessive microbial gas production, or simply have a gut environment that your microbes perceive as threatening.

Active Microbial Diversity

Your percentile for the total count of active microbial species detected and sequenced from your sample. A good score translates to more richness, which in turn can provide more resilience to your microbial gut ecosystem and your body.

Gas Production

An assessment of your overall gas production activity by the microbes in your gut. Overall high microbial gas production has been associated with digestive difficulties, discomfort, and gut health.

Gut Lining Health

This score focuses on your gut lining (or intestinal barrier) and the health of the mucosal layer that protects it. When your gut lining is compromised, things from the outside environment, like toxins, medications, and harmful bacteria, can make their way into your bloodstream from your gut and negatively affect your immune system and overall wellbeing.

Protein Fermentation

This score reflects whether or not you are digesting your proteins properly. If the protein is not fully broken down through this process, your microbes will digest the excess protein available and may convert it into harmful byproducts.


Your Food & Supplement Recommendations

Over 400 foods sorted into your personal list of Superfoods, Enjoy, Minimize, & Avoid foods

You'll receive over 400 foods sorted into your personal list of Superfoods, Enjoy, Minimize, & Avoid foods.

Food that may be healthy for one person can have a very different effect on another, even in the case of twins who share the same DNA. Based on your test results and the analysis of your body's gene expression, we can determine what superfoods will help you the most right now and what foods could be contributing to poor health or symptoms you may be experiencing.

Supplement and probiotic recommendations selected from over 200 ingredients in your precise dosage needs.

We don’t believe in one-size-fits-all supplement recommendations, short quizzes, or Google when it comes to determining what you really need. Based on your gut microbiome, some commonly believed universal ‘beneficial’ supplements could actually interfere with how your body operates.We assess what your body needs at a molecular level to ensure maximum impact and precision so you get enough of what you need, and nothing extra.

When you join Viome, you’ll have the option to take part in our mission to make illness optional by participating in clinical studies to predict and prevent chronic diseases through a deeper understanding of an individual’s biology at a molecular level.

Our Science

Metatranscriptomic Sequencing Image

Metatranscriptomic Sequencing

With proprietary RNA sequencing technology, we have the most advanced tools to study the gut microbiome, oral microbiome, blood transcriptome and broader human - microbe interactions throughout the body in much greater detail. The results are reshaping modern medicine!

Artificial Intelligence Image

Artificial Intelligence

Viome’s AI platform engine is then able to connect the activity and patterns of an individual’s biology with the right nutrients that his or her body needs to encourage a balanced microbiome, and optimize how the body functions as an entire system as a way to promote total body health and wellness.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I test my gut microbiome?

Card before icon

Viome uses a proprietary technology, originally developed at the Los Alamos National Laboratory called metatranscriptomic sequencing. This technology allows us to see every microorganism in your gut microbiome and analyze the activity of these microorganisms. This far surpasses any other gut testing technology, such as 16S and Metagenomic Analysis (which both use DNA), as metatranscriptomics looks at RNA and identifies all microorganisms living in your gut: bacteria, viruses, archaea, yeast, fungi, and eukaryotes, as well as what those microbes do and produce there, giving you the fullest picture available of your current gut microbiome health. Most microbes are neither absolutely good nor bad. It depends on the functions your microbes are performing and how they’re working together. Our snapshot of your current microbiome health gives you the full story on your microbes, what they’re doing and producing.

Can my gut microbiome change when I implement my recommendations?

Card before icon

Yes! When you implement your Viome food and supplement recommendations, your microbiome may experience changes. And in fact, your gut microbiome is constantly in flux depending on what you feed it, along with environmental conditions, such as stress. As everybody’s gut microbiome is unique, how fast or slow these changes happen all depends on you and your personal journey.

What will I get if I test with Health Intelligence instead of Gut Intelligence?

Card before icon

Viome’s Gut Intelligence Test is our original, groundbreaking health test that uses a stool sample to measure your microbial gene expression and gives you insights about your gut microbiome health along with nutrition recommendations to help improve areas that need attention.

With our latest test, Health Intelligence, we build on the foundation of our Gut Intelligence Test to reveal how your gut microbiome is impacting the rest of your body. With this test, we analyze not only microbial gene expression, but also mitochondrial and human gene expression.

Health Intelligence gives you insights into Cellular Health, Immune System Health, Stress Response Health, Mitochondrial Health, and Biological Age plus over 30 more subscores beneath these main health areas. Your food, supplement, probiotic, and prebiotic recommendations are based on these scores and your full profile analysis.

How can I see my test results?
