Thryve is a health & wellness company that provides interesting data around the microbes in your body and which foods and supplements to take. We are available to be purchased directly on our website which makes us affordable but we are NOT clinical diagnostic test. Dr's data and Genova are physican ordered tests that are usually highly expensive but used in a clinical setting.
Thryve is different than other stool tests in the following way:
1) Truly Actionable Insights: Our microbiome health report is the first of it's kind. We've utilized our own proprietary software to analyze every single microbiome research article (35,000+) and summarized 4,000 microbes (descriptions, health benefits/side effects, associated diseases, foods digested, functions, and many more) and have mapped them to 1,000+ food ingredients and 500+ supplements. In short, we have the most comprehensive actionable insights in the microbiome space.
2) Highest Accuracy Testing Kit: Our testing kit uses a proprietary liquid buffer that keeps bacterial cells in stasis prior to extraction and provides 28% more accuracy in sequencing by providing more depth and species categorization. All other kits on the market use either a "dry swab" or "anti-microbials" in their liquid buffer to lyse the cells to stop them from growing during the transportation process (that's why AG has a bloom filter) and other's don't even account for this bias. What this means is that other testing companies are actually not showing you the true data of your sample!
3) Personalized Probiotics: We are the first company to offer a truly personalized probiotic based on questionnaires and microbiome test results. We've spent over a year working with several clinically proven probiotic manufacturing partners to curate a large strain library. We also plan to offer prebiotic as part of the personalization of our probiotic supplement. Otherwise, please see here for additional information of how we compare to other probiotic brands.
Furthermore, we have been rated 4.5+ stars across several review sites (Facebook, Amazon, DNA testing choice) compared to the other microbiome testing services.
