We are a diverse group of people who are passionate about developing best in class products that improve people’s health and well-being.

Our Mission

To be the trusted brand in bringing improved health ​through microbiome solutions.

Our Values

 

At our core we believe in the power of the collective. To harness that power we have built a foundation of integrity and kindness.

 

Lead with Bold Transparency

 

As thought leaders in a new field of study, we boldly share our intentions, knowledge and findings - most critically with each other, but also with the public at large - to ensure we are moving our work and the study of the microbiome ever-forward.

 

Follow Curiosity with Rigor

 

As pioneers at the forefront of the microbiome, we use curiosity as our driving force and hardcore science as our compass.

 

Practice Balance

 

A challenge as great as ours requires clarity of thought and purpose, the ability to connect disparate dots and a respect for diverse points of view. To achieve this level of thinking and to maintain a perspective on what matters most, we prioritize balance, health and happiness.
