Why we created Symbiome Labs.
We live in an age of epidemic inflammatory disease — where six out of ten of us have a chronic disease with an inflammatory component. Symbiome’s deep scientific research has revealed that the modern human skin microbiome has lost over 80% of its microbial diversity and at least 25% of its metabolic function. Yes — our microbiome used to make a lot of the biomolecules (nutrients, vitamins, etc.) that we need to be healthy. We believe that this loss of function significantly contributes to the recent dramatic increase in chronic inflammatory disease.
