How do you create my formula?
Our scientists tailor your Floré supplement based on your gut report. We go through your report to identify and select the right live prebio & probio bacteria and digestive and then create your gut supplement. To do this we send you an easy-to-use sample collection kit. You then simply drop your sample to your local post office/post box using our pre-paid return mailer.
Your sample is then analysed in our in-house CLIA certified laboratory by our microbiologists. Your formulation is then personalised to your gut. Everything is created in house, from analysis to your personalised Floré gut supplement. Our facilities are GMP certified, meaning we adhere to the highest regulatory standards when making your supplement and sequencing your stool sample.
What is in my Floré gut supplement?
Your formula is made of good, unique and well-researched live Prebio & Probio bacteria blended with digestive enzymes and botanical ingredients. Each strain and ingredient is specifically selected and formulated for your gut by our microbiologists, right down to the CFU content.
All of our live Prebio & Probio bacteria strains are clinically proven to survive the gastric environment and reach your gut. We test every strain in-house in our CLIA certified laboratory before we add it into our growing repository of 120+ strains.
Do I get an online gut health report?
Yes! You receive an online report which allows you to see what is in your gut. Your report will show you all the good and bad bacteria, including any fungi, yeast, archaea and parasites that may make up your gut.
How long does it take to get my custom formula and what do I receive?
You receive a 90-day supply of your personalised gut supplement. Also included is a 7 day ‘prime’ buffer in a personalised bamboo container, which is a lower dose version that prepares your gut for your 90-day supply.
Day 1: We ship your microbiome collection kit as soon as you order.
Day 2-10: You collect and return your stool sample to our lab. We only require that you are not on antibiotics, or have consumed alcohol before providing the sample. Otherwise, the sooner you send us your sample the sooner we get on preparing your custom formula!
Day 11-27: Your sample goes through extraction and DNA sequencing. Our scientists analyse your gut microflora and formulate, lab-craft and select the strains for your personalised gut supplement. Each formula is carefully crafted from our inventory of over 120+ clinically validated Prebio & Probio strains to support your specific gut health needs. Your personalised formula is made in house.
Day 28-30: Your personalised gut supplement reaches your door with a cold pack and ready for you to start your gut health journey! We also send it in eco-friendly and re-usable packaging.
What technology do you use to test my sample?
Our scientists use whole-genome shotgun sequencing (WGS) technology. We extract your stool samples DNA and put it through our proprietary GutBuster (analysis) software. GutBuster can detect over 103,000 genomes which includes 40,000 different organisms and 23,000 species in your gut, including bacteria, fungus, yeast and parasites. We tell you the exact DNA strain of your gut bacteria right down to the percentage of each microbe that makes up your unique gut. We also identify your missing good bacteria and enzymes that you may need to optimise your gut health.
