Traditionally, we have selected our supplements by browsing the supplement aisle or looking at social media trends. We have relied on information from friends, Google searches and other sources without considering what our body truly needs. With the emergence of personalized supplements, we are now questioning how to determine the best supplement regimen for our specific needs.
You don’t need personalized supplements if you eat whole foods
Obtaining all the necessary nutrients from food alone can be challenging. Factors such as modern agricultural practices, cooking methods, food processing and preservation can all contribute to a reduction in the nutritional value of our food. Additionally, it is not always possible to consume sufficient amounts of certain nutrients through food alone. For example, consuming large quantities of specific foods to obtain a specific nutrient may not be practical. Furthermore, other factors such as pollution, stress and aging also make supplementing necessary.
The recommended dosage for supplements is sufficient for everyone
The typical dosage recommendations for supplements are based on the average needs of a healthy person. However, each individual’s nutrient requirements are unique and are influenced by factors such as their biology and current health status. Viome’s Full Body Intelligence Test and Precision Supplements and Probiotics + Prebiotics are designed to help you identify your specific nutrient needs by addressing the underlying causes of your health concerns.
Viome’s personalized supplement program begins with the Full Body Intelligence Test, a revolutionary test that assesses your gut microbiome, oral microbiome, and cellular health by analyzing your mRNA, which reflects how your genes are being expressed. The test results provide insight into how lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, and stress affect your health, which is used to create your Precision Supplements. These supplements typically contain over 50 high-quality ingredients, and are tailored to meet your specific dosage needs as indicated by your test results. Additionally, you will receive a personalized probiotic regimen, comprising of the optimal combination of probiotic strains and prebiotic fibers to complete your health journey.
The more, the better
Viome’s technology enables a thorough analysis of the body at the molecular level. Based on the results, they recommend supplements and biotic ingredients that target specific health functions such as gut health, oral health, cellular health, inflammation, immune system response, brain and cognitive health, and heart health.* Taking a few supplements may seem like the most convenient solution, but the body is complex and requires a more tailored approach. The most effective supplement regimen is one that is specific to your individual nutrient needs.
Supplements that are healthy for you today will always be healthy for you
Health is a dynamic process that is affected by a variety of lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, stress, relationships, hygiene and habits. As a result, two individuals may have different responses to the same food or supplement, even if they have identical DNA. Viome’s testing and analysis of your current health state allows for the provision of supplement recommendations that are tailored to your current needs. Additionally, Viome offers personalized food recommendations which together with the personalized supplements, help to bring your body into balance.
As our understanding of supplements advances, it is essential that our supplement regimen keeps pace. Four key considerations are crucial when it comes to supplements: what is needed, why it is needed, when it is needed, and in what quantity. Viome Precision Supplements address all these factors by providing a unique, individualized formula that includes vitamins, minerals, herbs, enzymes, amino acids, probiotics, fibers, and botanical extracts, formulated based on the results of the at-home test. Overall health is a personal matter, and therefore, the supplement routine should be personalized as well.
