Viome: Gut Intelligence Test

Today, I received the results from Viome that I’ve been waiting for. It took them around 5 weeks.

They gave us two reports (aside from a very fancy website that explains everything in text and video!)

The first report is the Results Report

The second report is the Recommendation Report.

When it comes to food, they created four categories, as follows:

  • Superfoods. Meet your food destiny. These are your most beneficial foods.
  • Enjoy. Build a strong foundation with these nutrient-dense foods.
  • Minimize. You should still eat these foods – but within limits
  • Avoid. These foods are your personal kryptonites. The ones they mentioned for me here were
    • Broccoli
    • Brussels Sprouts
    • Cabbage
    • Crab (Pacific)
    • Cucumber
    • Goat
    • Haddock
    • Mustard Greens
    • Spinach
    • Tomato
    • Trout (Cold Water)

On the other hand, they recommended I take this specific probiotic named Hyperbiotics, and Curcumin from these two recommended brands: Integrative Therapeutics or Thorne !

I was also told to improve the following:

  • Sulfide Gas Production Pathways
  • Putrescine Production Pathways
  • Oxalate Metabolism Pathways
  • Uric Acid Production Pathways

They explained in detail the rationale behind each decision
