Hey there,

About a year ago, I took antibiotics and became ill to the point of being hospitalized. Through this traumatizing experience I started researching to find out what exactly happened to my health. A year long endeavor lead me to discover the wonders of the microbiome – bacteria, yeast, and viruses – inside our bodies.

Turns out science has been making some amazing discovering about the connection between our health and the microbes inside our body. Research have shown correlations between the microbiome and diseases such as Autism, Asthma, Eczema, Crohns, Ulcerative Colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Obesity, and many more. Although evidence at the moment are correlative and not causation yet, the preliminary data is super exciting. 

Thus, I started Thryve with the belief that better health begins with accessible microbiome sequencing and properly sourced probiotics. With us, you’ll know where everything is coming from and why we chose it for you. Welcome to Thryve!
