Viome at-Home Gut Microbiome Test
I'm not sure I really need a Viome at-Home Gut Microbiome Test to give me an "accurate gut analysis." I can pretty much look in the mirror and figure out the most important things about mine: it's a little too soft and pudgy.
Fine. And hairy.
Ah, but wait, there's more. Viome says their Gut Microbiome Test can also tell me why my gut is a little too softy and pudgy, and which bacterial residents I have that are holding me back from, or that I need more of to help me lose the weight. And digest and metabolize my food better. Plus sleep and focus better.
Doesn't seem Viome can do much about the follicular overgrowth though.
Current popular science and diet trends are loving the human gut microbiome. Some even go so far as to say it's the key to fighting obesity, plus a host of other health problems. If you believe that (and I'm not saying it is or isn't true, I have no idea) the Viome at-Home Gut Microbiome Test is a way to map out your personal gut organism makeup, and then receive food recommendations tailored to your personal needs.
You'll use the Viome kit to collect and send in a stool sample for the company's lab to analyze. Results, mainly recommendations of foods to eat and avoid, are sent back to you online in around 4 weeks. You'll also get suggestions of probiotic supplements to take if your gut is lacking.
