Frequently Asked Questions

About MyByome

What is MyByome's mission and philosophy?

MyByome is a research company dedicated to furthering our understanding of the human microbiome and specifically developing new applications in personalized health. The human microbiome is an ecological collection of microorganisms living on and in us, including commensal bacteria, bacteriophages, and fungi. Therefore, this symbiotic relationship has become central to our overall wellness and longevity. Likewise, an inadequate or dysfunctional microbiome contributes to human diseases.

We have focused our research efforts on therapeutic microbiota found in human Gastrointestinal tract, skin, oral and urogenital niches. We have spent over a decade identifying, optimizing, growing, and stabilizing probiotic and prebiotic candidates. Our scientists created novel conditions for isolation, identification, characterization, and fermentation of beneficial or clinically important probiotic strains. With each significant probiotic discovery, we identified many prebiotic requirements necessary for healthy colonization of probiotic consortia and symbiotic inter-relationships.

Ultimately, our research has led to cutting edge, patented probiotic and prebiotic formulas directed at important human health concerns. Our course correcting approach to re-colonizing and diversifying the microbiota will have long lasting benefits.

Why do you have your own laboratory?

Having our own laboratory demonstrates our devoted history to research and therefore enhances our credibility in research and development. Having these laboratory tools available allows us to develop keystone probiotics and determine optimal growth conditions. The laboratory solidifies our commitment to developing clinically successful formulations.

What research are MyByome's products based on?

We have dedicated 15 years cultivating probiotics designed to help us thrive. However, the last 10 years have been the most exciting, in part because of the Human Microbiome Project. This project injected excitement into isolating, growing, experimenting and understanding each new probiotics potential. Furthermore, we now have a greater understanding of which probiotics will have the greatest impact as long term therapies needed for health and wellness.

General Questions

Why is the microbiome important?

The Microbiome is now considered another essential organ. Like your liver, heart, or brain, the microbiome performs many essential functions. One important aspect is that it allows us to metabolize all kinds of nutrients so we can adapt and thrive anywhere on this planet. To learn more about the microbiome and its impact on health, view our Microbiome Education.

Why do you recommend that I drink more liquids while taking MyByome products?

Drinking more water is important when taking any supplement. First, it allows for enough fluid to carry the supplement through into the stomach and also provides extra water to support uptake.
