If you’ve ever struggled with anxiety or depression, you know firsthand the toll it can take on your wellbeing and productivity – even getting through the day can be tough. Being anxious and depressed is much more than an inconvenience – it takes a toll on your health, causing you to get sick, lowering your immunity, and can even prevent you from recovering.
Though we've been told depression and anxiety are chemical imbalances of the brain, cutting-edge research is revealing a new player in the game: the gut microbiome. The gut microbiome contains 100 trillion microorganisms that influence our wellbeing in significant ways. It’s hard to think of one chronic disease that has not been associated with an imbalance in the gut microbiome at some level. This imbalance is known as dysbiosis. It seems as though when someone is sick there are always menacing microbes lurking in the shadows.
Through the use of neurotransmitters, hormones, proteins, and other communication factors, your gut can send messages directly to your brain. Your microbes influence how you feel, your emotions, and your happiness in a very real and tangible way. Viome developed the Viome Gut Intelligence™ Test that analyzes the activity of the microbes in your microbiome to provide you with personalized food recommendations that allow your body to function at peak performance.
