How do Probiotics help Improve Gut Health?
The human gut microbiome is made up of trillions of organisms that live in your intestinal tract, which play a major role in digesting the food you eat, as well as absorbing nutrients. While there are microbes that could be considered both "good and bad", it is what the microbes do and produce in your microbiome, as well as the richness and diversity, that directly impacts your gut health. Your gut health impacts a wide range of health issues, from your metabolism and body weight, to your immune system, skin health, digestion and brain function.
When your gut flora is out of balance, meaning the microbes that are producing harmful substances outnumber those producing beneficial substances, your body can't absorb nutrients as well as it should which often leads to a series of health complaints. This can be due to many factors, including stress, lifestyle, diet, use of antibiotics, a health condition, or something else.
Prebiotic and probiotic supplementation is key to maintaining a balanced gut and improving overall gut health.* Proper balance can help you better digest food, absorb nutrients, and boost immunity.* Studies have also linked the proper gut bacteria to tons of additional health benefits, like weight loss, healthier skin, and improvement on a wide range of digestive and intestinal issues.*
Microbiome Probiotics Personalized for Your Unique Gut
When it comes to gut health, there is no one size fits all probiotic solution. Each and every person has a unique gut microbiome. Mass-produced probiotics typically contain just a few strains of bacteria, while your microbiome has thousands of strains.
Viome Precision Probiotics + Prebiotics are a little different than your average probiotic. In a good way! These are personalized pre and probiotics, formulated in our labs and based on your unique microbiome. While most probiotics can be bought in capsules at the natural foods or supplements store, Viome’s personalized gut health probiotics are personalized and made to order for you, based on your Viome Gut Intelligence scores (included with subscription).
How your Custom Probiotics + Prebiotics Subscription Works
When we say your prebiotics + probiotics formula is customized, we don’t mean you take a simple quiz and we send you your probiotics and hope it works for your gut. With Precision Probiotics + Prebiotics, we take out the guessing game. Here’s how it works:
First, we need to test your actual gut microbiome. We will ship you a Gut Intelligence Test, which is an easy at-home stool test that will provide accurate insights to your gut health.
The information from your gut health test is decoded with the help of our Lab, Translational Science, and AI teams.
View Your Results:
Your test results are downloaded into the Viome app, and your custom gut health probiotics + prebiotics stick packs are precisely measured and prepared.
We then ship your formula to you in a sleek box each month. Mix the powder with a glass of water, juice, or your protein shake each day and enjoy!
Measuring the Effects of your Gut Health Probiotics*
Precision Probiotics + Prebiotics are the most precise probiotics on the market. But don’t take our word for it. Viome Precision Pre + Probiotics comes with a Gut Intelligence Test, which provides 20+ scores that reveal insight about your gut microbiome health including Gut Lining Health, Active Microbial Diversity, Digestive Efficiency, and more. Additionally, you get nutrition insights and recommendations, which help you eat the foods to best maintain gut health.
With the Viome app, you are able to actually measure and see your results as they change over time. Adjust your diet accordingly, and take the proper probiotic strains your body needs for optimal health.* Then close the loop by retesting, so you can see how your gut health scores have changed. Depending on your progress, your custom probiotics formula may be adjusted.
We provide all of the tools to keep up your momentum, and help you move along on your personal health journey.
