Personalized insights report

Tour your own body with the latest science

6 weeks after testing your biology, you’ll get a detailed report comparing your results to thousands of other people. It will reveal how your body responds to foods including your sensitivity to dietary inflammation and scores for meals you ate during the test period.

Discover the gut microbes that call you home

Your personalized gut health report will include a Microbiome Health Score™ and the prevalence of 30 specific bacteria  (15 good and 15 bad) our research has linked to metabolic health. You will also receive a list of personalized gut boosters (foods that will support the growth of good bacteria), and gut suppressors (foods to limit to reduce bad bacteria).

Got questions?

How can I get a blood sugar sensor?

To get a free blood sugar sensor with your test kit you must consent to our clinical study. To be eligible for the study you must meet the following criteria:

  • You are at least 18 years of age (or at least 19 years of age if you live in Alabama or Nebraska).
  • You live in the continental United States, but not in New York, New Jersey, or Rhode Island due to state regulations.
  • You have a body mass index (BMI) of at least 16.5 kg/m2.
  • You are not pregnant.
  • You have not had a heart attack (myocardial infarction), stroke/transient ischemic attack, or major surgery in the last two months.
  • You can safely eat our test meals.
  • If you are being treated for chronic medical conditions (such as eating disorders, type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes), you have checked with your treating physician that this product is safe for you.
I’m not sure about collecting my poop. Will it need to be stored in my fridge?

The poop test is easy to collect and comes with step-by-step instructions to help you. The sample goes into a solution that preserves it, so there is no need to store it in your fridge. Phew!

How does ZOE analyze my gut microbiome?

Within the panel of next-generation sequencing approaches for studying the human microbiome, we chose shotgun metagenomics as it is the most comprehensive approach at sampling the whole DNA content of a microbiome. This technique can detect very low abundance members of the microbial community (i.e. those found in very small numbers) that may be missed using other methods and provides information about the metabolic processes and functions present within a microbial community.

You can learn more about how we analyze your gut microbiome here.

Is ZOE FSA eligible?

Not at this moment, but it is an idea for the future.

Are your muffins suitable for vegans or vegetarians?

Our muffins do not contain gluten or dairy ingredients, but are not certified gluten-free. However, they do contain egg ingredients and have been produced in a facility that also handles milk, egg, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, wheat, peanuts, and soy. They have not been cooked in a Kosher kitchen.

The muffins include the following ingredients:

  • Plain gluten-free flour
  • Corn flour
  • Sugar
  • Sunflower oil
  • Dried egg whites
  • Liquid egg whites
  • Baking powder
  • Vanilla extract
  • Potassium Sorbate
  • Calcium Propionate
How do we define the 15 'good' and 15 'bad' bugs?

This is based on the microbiome research we have done in which we did an analysis of correlation of the health of the PREDICT participants and the bugs that were present in their microbiome. For the PREDICT participants, we had data on various health markers and on what bugs were present. We found the 15 top bugs associated with good health markers, and the 15 bugs associated with bad health markers. We created an algorithm to create an index that is very well correlated with health in the participants, which is the microbiome index.

Is ZOE FDA approved?

No, ZOE is not meant to diagnose or treat any medical conditions. It is a tool that is meant for general wellness purposes only.

When will ZOE be available in my area?

The ZOE program is only available to people living in the continental United States. However, it is not currently available to people living in New York, New Jersey, or Rhode Island due to regulations in those states.

We hope to expand the program to serve other regions globally as soon as possible.

How long can I expect to wait after testing to receive results?

To get your results you will first need to complete your tests at home and return your samples in the package provided. From there it currently takes about 5-6 weeks for our labs to process your samples. You will then receive an email as soon as your insights reports are ready to view.

I have a medical condition. Is ZOE suitable for me?

We do not diagnose, prevent, or treat any diseases (including metabolic or inflammatory conditions). If you have any underlying health conditions you should consult your treating physician before joining the program.

We do factor some conditions into our advice including many common medications for diabetes (e.g. metformin) and heart disease (e.g. statins).

Unfortunately, if you have a gut disease (e.g. Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, or celiac disease) then you are not eligible for the program.

If you have a sensitive gut (e.g. irritable bowel syndrome) then you may join the program. However, you should understand that our advice is for general wellness and is not specifically formulated for your condition. Some diet changes we recommend such as increasing fiber and diversifying your plant intake have been shown to trigger adverse responses in some people with a sensitive gut. While we give advice to improve gut health and reduce dietary inflammation which is suitable for most people – following our advice may make your condition worse. We are actively researching how we might be able to adjust our advice specifically for people living with irritable bowel syndrome.

Is the blood sugar sensor painful to apply?

Some people might feel a slight pinch, during application, but this should go away soon after and the sensor should be painless to wear. Most people don't even feel it while wearing it!

What is your returns & refund policy?

All sales are final and may not be cancelled unless your order has not been prepared yet. Preparation typically occurs within 24-48 hours after order placement. If there are any issues with quality or there are damaged parts, please get in contact with our support team and they'll be happy to assist you. If you are participating in the research study, you have the right to discontinue the study at any time. The cost of the program does not include any study-related costs as ZOE covers these, so you remain responsible for the cost of your order.
