Kits & Samples

When will I get my DNA and Gut Biome kits?

The kits take about a week to reach you after you have signed up for the program. We are working hard to fulfill shipments in the order in which they were received. We know you are excited to receive the kits! Thank you for your patience.

How does my spit become a report?

From your spit we get samples of your DNA, or your genes - a roadmap of your biology that you were born with. Your DNA encodes everything from how tall you are, to your eye color and hair curl, to whether beer tastes bitter to you or whether you think your pee smells funny after you eat asparagus (fun fact, but everyone’s pee smells after eating asparagus, but only some folks can smell it). We curate the latest in wellness and genetics research to produce a report about what your genes say about your health, body, and wellness.

How does my stool become a report?

Millions of different kinds of bacteria live in your gut. We sample your stool to get a snapshot of what kinds specifically inhabit you. We then collaborate with uBiome, a leader in gut microbiome analysis, and curate the latest in wellness and microbiome research to produce a report about what your stool says about your health.

Do I have to get my blood drawn?

No, but providing us with updated blood marker results will allow us to tailor the best nutrition plan for your biology.
