Approximately 40 TRILLION different organisms are living in your gut. This galaxy of microbes holds sway over your mind and body, playing a critical role in your health, including most chronic diseases.
We'd like to introduce you to this unique microbial world that lives inside of you, show you around a bit, and optimize them to start working for you.
Every living organism produces RNA molecules from their DNA. Making RNA from DNA is called “transcription.” By sequencing all of the RNA in your sample, Viome is the only company that can identify and quantify the living microorganisms in your gut including bacteria, viruses, eukaryotes, archaea, and more at the species and strain level.
Because we focus on the live microorganisms, the mere fact that we are able to detect transcription of something means they are alive and active in your gut!
A resilient microbiome has a wide variety of microorganisms, able to perform a wide range of functions. Our high-resolution technology allows us to see these functions- what your microbes are actively doing- to give you scores that provide you with a clear picture of how your diet is positively, or negatively, contributing to the health of your gut microbiome and what you can do to improve it.

Taking the Gut Intelligence Test is easy. All we need from you is a small, pea-sized amount of your stool which you can collect at any time of the day. In addition to your sample, we ask you to fill out a questionnaire that may take about 15-20 minutes. There is nothing you need to do to prepare for the test.
All materials needed for collection, as well as detailed instructions, are sent to your home along with your kit.
Is there an age requirement for using Viome's Gut Intelligence Test?
Viome's Gut Intelligence Test is available for both adults and minors. Children under the age of 18 must sign a separate consent form and parents must sign a parental assent form.
All Viome accounts must be set up with a unique email address. When registering a kit for a minor, be sure to select the appropriate age option. Failure to do so could result in a delay in processing results and recommendations.
Results and recommendations for minors may take a few days longer to process than for adults - please be aware of this when ordering Viome for a minor.
How long will it take to receive results, and what can I expect from my Gut Intelligence results?
Viome's results and recommendations take up to 4 weeks after the lab receives your sample and completed questionnaires. Everyone’s microbiome is unique and this is why the time varies. Once your results are available, you’ll receive an email notification.
The recommendations you receive from Viome include personalized food recommendations based on your Gut Intelligence test results, so you’ll know which foods are your superfoods, enjoy foods, minimize foods, and avoid foods we recommend you follow for 90 days. Additional food preparation tips and tricks, and fun food facts are also included, to help you get the most out of Viome recommendations.
You may receive recommendations for supplements if our team of medical doctors, nutritionists, and naturopathic doctors see that you may benefit from these. These typically come in the form of a prebiotic, probiotic, or supplement of polyphenols.
We have many customers who experience a wide range of benefits after following our recommendations including better digestion, improved sleep, weight loss, and overall improvement of mood, however, every experience is unique and everyone will experience benefits unique to their own body and state of health.
