SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Thryve, providers of high quality microbiotics and microbiome testing, launches the nation's first monthly microbiome testing and probiotics subscription. The subscription provides consumers with knowledge of their own gut bacteria, high potency probiotics, and personalized diet and lifestyle recommendations for measurable and noticeable improvements in health and wellness.
The human gut is home to nearly 10 trillion microorganisms that have a profound impact on our health and wellness. Probiotics have become a growing health trend, with the global wellness market reaching 3.7 trillion annually. "Our gut is commonly referred to as 'the second brain' with more than 100 million neurons that connect to the brain," said Thryve's Chief Science Officer Dr. Jun W. Kim (PhD Bioengineering, Stanford University). "Because of their important role in developing and regulating the immune system, the gut microbes are known to influence diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, Crohns disease, and diabetes…clinical studies show that treatments with probiotics or transplantations with the gut microbes from healthy individuals can provide therapeutic effects."
"Gut health is so important to overall health, and we wanted to provide consumers with an easy, accurate, and affordable way to learn about and improve their own gut health," said Richard Lin, Founder and CEO of Thryve. "Our testing kit requires only a small stool sample taken in the privacy of the subscribers' own home, and all samples are tested by our partners at the world-renowned University of Chicago Argonne National Laboratory."
Packages start from only $59.95 per month and include the testing kit, comprehensive Gut Wellness Report, and Thryve's high quality probiotics, which help you look better, feel better, and get better results.
The Thryve Microbiome Subscription Box Service will be available starting January 31, 2017.

Gut Wellness Score
Thryve's provides subscribers with the most accurate analysis of their actual gut environment. The testing kit features a unique MicroStore liquid buffer, which keeps microorganisms in stasis, preventing overgrowth of bacteria that can lead to inaccurate test results. The test currently sequences the entire gut bacteria microbiome, with plans to integrate yeast and virus sequencing in Q2 and Q4 of 2017 respectively.
Results are sent to subscribers in the form of detailed but user-friendly reports, with information on the various health impacts of the bacteria levels found in their stomach and diet and lifestyle recommendations drawn from over 3,000+ leading microbiome studies. Each report also features an overall "Gut Wellness Score" which allows subscribers to track their progress over time, with each successive monthly test providing clearer insight into the ongoing health of their gastrointestinal system. Subscribers can also input information on their diet and supplement intake on Thryve's user platform for even more personalized reports, and can also participate in Thryve's online user community to share diets, symptoms, lifestyle tips, and microbiome test results with other Thryve subscribers. Thryve will also launch integration with popular health tracking apps including FitBit, Apple Health Kit, MyFitnessPal, and more.
Along with testing, each monthly kit comes with Thryve's high-quality probiotics. Engineered for maximum efficacy, Thryve's probiotics contain high CFU (Colony Forming Unit) counts, making it more potent than over-the-counter probiotics. Thryve's probiotics also contain 15 strains of Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus, compared to the meager 1 to 6 strains that the average store-bought supplement contains.
The bacterial strains utilized in Thryve's unique probiotics are more resilient, with independent testing showing over 91% of bacteria actually reaching the colon, where they can work to produce the results that many other probiotics fail to deliver. This richer diversity and strong delivery system provides for a more potent boost for a healthier gut environment.
Thryve donates 1% of its revenue to leading non-profits researching the connection between organism in the human microbiome and the relation to disease including IBS, Alzheimer's, obesity and many more. Thryve subscribers have the option to choose which research organizations they wish to support. This helps expand knowledge in the growing field of microbiome and probiotic research, forwarding research to more clearly identify how different species and strains of microorganisms in the body effect overall health.
Thryve is the only monthly subscription that combines customized testing of the microbiome with a personalized probiotic created specifically for the individual. Thryve connects individuals with leading scientific research and a robust online community to help uncover meaningful and actionable insights into tackling microbiome related diseases.
