Test your gut, blood fat and blood sugar responses with our at-home test kit
About 6 weeks later you'll receive your personalized insights report
Put your insights into action with a flexible framework tailored to your biology
Sustain, thrive and build on your success using ZOE’s companion app
We use a continuous glucose monitor (CGM)* that’s easy and painless to apply to your arm. This sensor measures your blood sugar in real-time for up to 14 days and helps you uncover how your body handles carbohydrate-rich foods.
*if eligible for our clinical trial
Discover your gut microbes with the most advanced test available on the market. Using deep shotgun sequencing, we can identify specific ‘good’ and ‘bad’ gut bugs that are linked to ‘good’ and ‘bad’ metabolic health.
Designed to put your metabolism to the test, these scientific muffins are the same ones used in our PREDICT studies. They will provide you with in-depth insights into your unique metabolism.
Using the same finger-prick tests and cutting-edge analysis used in our research, you’ll measure your blood fat responses after eating muffin meals. This test is the only one available on the market that gives you insights into this key component of metabolic health.
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.
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).
Reduce your dietary inflammation and improve gut health with a flexible framework tailored to your unique biology and life. Built around your food scores, our app will teach you how to make smart swaps, week by week. With ZOE nothing is off limits. Our aim is to empower you with the information and tools you need to make the best decisions for your body.
Our companion app will support you throughout your program and beyond. Get personalized ZOE scores for thousands of foods you can enjoy freely, based on your results. You’ll discover 1000s of foods and meal suggestions that will improve your gut health and reduce dietary inflammation. Together we’ll learn how to time and combine foods to make them work for your body.
Receive one-to-one support and guidance from your personal ZOE coach on our premium plan. You will have video coaching sessions and daily support at your fingertips with the in-app chat to help you reach your personal goals.
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:
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!
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.

Not at this moment, but it is an idea for the future.
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:
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.
No, ZOE is not meant to diagnose or treat any medical conditions. It is a tool that is meant for general wellness purposes only.
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.
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.
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.
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!
