10 million+

datapoints

Your biochemistry is unique! We measure over 10 million data points from expressed genes per sample from microbial (oral and gut) and human cells, allowing us to quantify, influence, and monitor your cellular and microbial pathways. This lets us know the nutrients or ingredients you need in order to stimulate or suppress certain functions and bring you back into balance.

We focus on key areas that have an impact on overall health

Gut Microbiome



As the largest micro-ecosystem in the human body, your gut microbiome is in a symbiotic relationship with you as its “host". A great deal of research has produced evidence that metabolites produced in your gut microbiome play a key role in maintaining balance and overall health for your entire body.

Science also shows that they influence the development of many diseases, including neurodegenerative diseases, cardiovascular diseases, metabolic diseases, and gastrointestinal diseases.


Our approach is to analyze what’s being produced in your gut microbiome that may impact your health and offer a personalized, food and nutrient-specific plan to bring your back into balance. 




Are there bad microbes?

Harmful microorganisms are called pathogens and can cause infection or disrupt normal patterns in health. However, harmful pathogens only make up a tiny fraction of the microbes that live inside us. Other than that, many commensal microbes within our body can act in beneficial or harmful ways depending on their environment (health, stress level, and access to different nutrients). This is why we rather classify microbial activities as either harmful or beneficial rather than specific microbes themselves. Like humans, whether you are bad depends on your actions, which can be influenced by the environment you live in.

What are the signs of microbial imbalance?

Signs can vary significantly from person to person, which is why Viome prioritizes testing before recommending a plan of action. However, certain signs are considered hallmarks of gut microbial imbalance, such as digestive discomfort, occasional gas and bloating, brain fog, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, excessive food cravings, an overactive (or underactive) immune response, depression, difficulty falling asleep, and many others. This is why we recommend testing.

Oral Microbiome

The oral microbiome, the second largest micro-ecosystem in your body, has been the focus of intense research in recent years. As the entry point to your entire body, it is no surprise that in addition to mouth diseases, the oral microbiome has been implicated in several systemic diseases.


Learn more

Problems with oral health caused by underlying, suboptimal microbial activities—such as cavities, gum disease, and tooth loss—can and do affect overall health. Science has linked the oral microbiome to many chronic diseases and health issues, including cognitive impairment, mental health, diabetes, sleep, pregnancy outcomes, many types of cancers, neurological disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, and cystic fibrosis.

How does food impact the oral microbiome?

Our food helps fuel our body, but it also is broken down into many compounds that help to support the microorganisms inside our body. In the mouth, as we chew, food particles are also used as fuel for various oral bacteria. In addition, the acidity level of our food can significantly sway the balance of harmful microorganisms. If we aren’t consuming enough fibrous and alkaline foods, our diet can impact the balance of organisms in the mouth and lead to changes in our dental health, gum health, and even interfere with other regions of the body

What can impact the health and balance of the oral microbiome?

A number of factors can contribute to health and balance, and conversely an imbalance of our oral microbiome. Our diet, lifestyle, dental hygiene, smoking and alcohol habits, as well as our family members and partners all contribute to the microorganisms in our mouth.

What are signs of an unhealthy oral microbiome?

Typical signs associated with an unhealthy oral microbiome may include ‘biofilm’ formation on the teeth. Also known as plaque, biofilm acts as a cityscape for colonizing bacteria. Excessive plaque formation can contribute to an accumulation of pathogens and toxic byproducts that can cause inflammation in and around the gums. This may appear as bleeding or easily damaged gums from brushing or flossing. Discomfort, excessive bleeding, and even sores inside the mouth may all be pointing toward issues of an imbalance in the oral microbiome.

Cellular Function

The human body is composed of trillions of cells that provide structure for the body, converting nutrients into energy and carrying out specialized functions. Inflammation from the activities of your gut microbiome and oral microbiome can be problematic for your cells.


Learn more

When your cells are functioning optimally, they produce enough energy to sustain your needs and are efficiently “cleaning up” cellular waste, like free radicals. When cells lack the nutrition they need, they can't keep up with the metabolic demands of the body, which leads to a loss of function and is the earliest measurable indicator of aging and declining health.

The food and nutrients you put into your body can affect the cells’ ability to replicate properly and to make the bodily tissues you need to repair daily damage, build new muscle, and reduce the effects of aging.

What are the hallmarks of cellular aging?

Our cells are very high-functioning machines, capable of healing and repairing old parts. This occurs naturally throughout the lifespan of a cell as performing its function sometimes results in damage. For example, organelles like the mitochondria create energy in the form of ATP from our food. As a byproduct, harmful free radicals occur causing oxidative damage. However, our cells naturally produce glutathione, the master antioxidant, that is particularly effective at neutralizing these free radicals. Cellular aging occurs when too much oxidative stress is created and our cells aren’t capable of neutralizing their effects. Consequently, our mitochondria become damaged and make it more difficult to generate energy. Over time, this can affect the overall health of a cell, and make it more difficult to repair. In addition, chronic oxidative stress can begin to harm other parts of the cell, such as our DNA. When our genetic code is broken down, a cell can no longer repair itself or replicate. As this occurs to many different cells, our body slowly loses the capacity to create new, youthful cells to replace the old ones, resulting in cellular and bodily aging.

What are microbial cells?

Also known as microorganisms, microbial cells can account for a variety of types of microscopic living organisms, including bacteria, archaea, prokaryotes, fungi, and even viruses.

What does Viome report about my cellular function?

Using a sample of your blood, we are able to assess what microbial byproducts and their effects are on our human cells. This gives us a clear picture of your circulating inflammation, the health of your mitochondria (the powerhouses of the cell), indications of oxidative stress levels, and even how combined they play a part in your biological aging. We can also see a number of other factors that contribute to your overall health landscape, such as how your diet is either aiding or harming your ability to heal and regenerate. In some cases, we can even see certain dietary deficiencies, such as your vitamin D status or whether you may benefit from an increase in fiber to help boost the health of your intestinal lining.
