uBiome Releases New Explorer™ Story for Alcohol Metabolism
Date:1/7/2019

uBiome, the leader in microbial genomics, announced today the release of a new Explorer™ story which provides insights to help individuals understand how their gut microbes offer support in metabolizing alcohol.

In the process of metabolizing alcohol, your microbiome may play a role in how long the toxic byproducts of breakdown linger in your body. The new story provides an individualized abundance of two groups of gut microbes–those that help toxic acetaldehyde accumulate, and those that help break it down–and concrete ways to improve the levels of both.

“The first product we launched, Explorer offers consumers a unique look at the microscopic inhabitants that live in and on their bodies,” Dr. Jessica Richman, PhD, co-founder and CEO of uBiome, said. “As the research evolves, we are constantly expanding the insights it provides, giving individuals a more comprehensive breakdown of their microbiome, how it's functioning, and how it compares to others.”

Since its launch in 2013, Explorer, uBiome’s pioneer product, has provided consumers with a tool to understand how their diet and lifestyle play a role in their health and wellness. It is the world’s first microbiome test to use next-generation sequencing, allowing consumers to learn about their microbiomes from the comfort of their homes. With the health and wellness market surpassing $37 trillion globally, Explorer targets biohackers, fitness enthusiasts, and consumers interested in a comprehensive breakdown of their microbiome, how it’s functioning, and how it compares to others. Explorer currently offers information on how microbes may alter gluten sensitivity, inflammation, lactose intolerance, healthy weight, and metabolism.
