Diabetes, heart disease and other chronic health problems are not improving. Current approaches to address them view weight gain as the problem, rather than a symptom of poor metabolic health. They also treat us all the same, when in reality our bodies are all very different.
We believe the first step to reaching your best health is to discover exactly how your body works and then retrain your biology from the inside out. By avoiding dietary inflammation and improving your gut health, our program can help to unlock energy, manage hunger, manage your weight, and reach your best health naturally.
Our PREDICT studies have shown that there is up to a tenfold variation in responses to the same meal for different people.
PREDICT is the largest in-depth nutrition study in the world, conducted with scientists from Massachusetts General Hospital, Stanford Medicine, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and King’s College London.
Our novel findings were published in leading medical journal, Nature Medicine, in June 2020.
We use the term "dietary inflammation" to capture the unhealthy effects that can be caused by what we eat. Excessive blood sugar and fat spikes can overwhelm your body's normal, healthy responses. This can trigger a variety of harmful responses, from blood sugar crashes and hunger to the immune system triggering inflammation.
Repeated often enough these can lead to weight gain and chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. Our studies suggest "good" gut microbes can provide a protective effect, reducing these negative responses and supporting lower levels of body fat.
Each of us has a unique gut microbiome. Our research is the first to identify a distinct set of 'good' and 'bad' gut microbes that are linked with specific foods and metabolic health.
Our unique microbiome test uses deep metagenomic sequencing to understand which 'good' and 'bad' microbes you have. This allows us to provide personalized recommendations that can potentially help increase the 'good' microbes that are under-represented in your gut.
We combine artificial intelligence with data from thousands of participants in our studies to generate personalized scores for any food or meal you eat. These scores are delivered in real-time through our app, which has hundreds of thousands of foods and thousands of meal suggestions for you to choose from.
We’ll show you how to put your unique scores into action. Our companion app will give you real-time feedback on meals that you eat, with insights including how to avoid dietary inflammation, nourish your gut, and better sequence your meals.
With ZOE, you’ll learn how to eat for your body, for life.
Our research combines the latest technologies, artificial intelligence, and collaboration with world-leading scientists, to move beyond a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to nutrition. Our PREDICT studies are the largest nutrition studies of their kind in the world and we’re proud to conduct them in collaboration with researchers and scientists from Massachusetts General Hospital, Stanford Medicine, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and King’s College London.
