Taking charge of your health with Thryve

The brain gets lots of hype, but did you know your gut is actually the real MVP? Your gut houses a microbiome with living organisms that play a vital role in your health.

Why was the company started?

Four years ago, the CEO and Founder of Thryve took antibiotics and came down with a superbug called C Diff that kills half a million Americans a year. Our CEO, Richard, visited multiple doctors for his symptoms but was dismissed as being too young and healthy looking to be sick.This spurred Richard to research the microbiome, including bacteria, yeast, and viruses. Science reveals the microbiome impacts our digestion, immunity, mental health, metabolism, and more. Richard realized there was no product in the market that could help consumers understand their microbiome and personalize a recommendation to improve their health, so he created Thryve.

What makes your products unique?

Our personalized products utilize the latest next-generation sequencing technology in order to create the right probiotic strains for each individual.

We explore 3 different variables in our personalization process:

  1. Overgrowth of bad bacteria: We introduce probiotic strains that may be able to create bacteriocins, which are naturally occurring antibiotics that can decrease bad bacteria.
  2. Deficiencies of good bacteria: We provide probiotics that may increase healthy bacteria levels.
  3. Health survey and goals: We hand pick strains to help you reach optimum health.

Since we have a DNA test, we give you a personalized report within our app. We offer a personalized health report that offers insight about food intolerances, sleep hormones, cardiovascular health, autoimmunity, inflammation, leaky gut, metabolism and more. We then pinpoint problem areas and give you personalized food recommendations and probiotics shipped straight to your home. This helps balance out the levels of bacteria in the gut to improve your health.
