What to expect

Your gut health influences other parts of your body. There’s a clear link between the type of bacteria in your gut and your risk of common diseases. The good news is that what you eat can have the biggest positive impact on the health of your gut microbiome.

Learn which “good” and “bad” bacteria you have in your gut

You take a quick poop test, and we use the most advanced technique, called shotgun metagenomics. It looks at the DNA of your gut bacteria and lets us analyze your entire microbiome. From this, we can identify the individual “good” and “bad” bacteria in your gut.

Look at how your gut microbiome health compares

Learn where your gut diversity scores sit within the general population. See how many “good” versus “bad” bugs you have, compared with other people of the same age and sex, to truly understand your gut health.

Discover the best foods for your “good” bugs

Our research shows that your gut microbiome has a stronger influence than your genes on how you respond to food. We give you food recommendations that support the “good” bugs in your gut.

Take action and get feedback on any food or meal

Actively improve your gut health with food suggestions that we tailor for your body and lifestyle. Built around your food scores, our app will teach you how to make smart swaps. With ZOE, nothing is off limits.

We’ll empower you with the knowledge and tools you need to make the best choices for your body.

Frequently asked questions

Where is ZOE available to purchase?

The ZOE programme is now available for early access in the UK to people who joined our waitlist before 2022 and expect to be on general release next year. Sign up here to be updated on our progress and notified when you can join the ZOE programme.

We're widely available in the US too. If you're from another country, we'd love you to register your interest and join our waitlist so we can gauge demand as we expand.

  • Real-time blood sugar sensor (CGM) if opted in to our science study
  • Gut health report
  • Personalised insights report

Membership: This phase turns the insights from your report into positive, long-lasting behavioural change. Week-by-week support retrains your body into eating according to your unique biology.

There are three different membership options: 1 month, 4 months, or 12 months. This is charged the day you receive your results, and auto-renews at the end of each period unless you reach out to us to cancel.

I’m not sure about collecting my poo. Will it need to be stored in my fridge?

The gut health poop test is easy to collect and comes with step-by-step instructions to help you. The sample goes into a solution that preserves it, so there is no need to store it in your fridge. Phew!

How does ZOE analyse my gut microbiome?

There's a variety of next-generation sequencing approaches for studying the human microbiome. We chose shotgun metagenomics as it is the most comprehensive approach at sampling the whole DNA content of a microbiome.

This technique can detect very low abundance members of the microbial community (i.e. those found in very small numbers) that may be missed using other methods and provides information about the metabolic processes and functions present within a microbial community.

You can learn more about how we analyse your gut microbiome here.

Do I need  a smartphone to use ZOE?

Yes. The ZOE app is currently available on both iOS (iPhone or iPad with iOS version 13.2 or later) and Android devices (Samsung, LG, Motorola etc. with Android 8.0 or later).

You'll also need to download and use the Abbott FreeStyle LibreLink app if you've opted-in to our study and will be using the blood sugar sensor.


In order to be able to opt-in to the study, your phone must be compatible with the Abbott FreeStyle LibreLink app.

Device requirements:

iiPhone iOS 13.2 or later and an iPhone 7 or newer. / iPhone SE (2nd gen). We can't support iPads

Android 8.0 or later. The oldest Android devices supported are: Galaxy Note 8, S7 Edge, S8, S8+, S9, S10; Google Pixel, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL; LG Nexus 5X. You'll also need to check you can install apps from the Google Play Store (some recent Huawei phones cannot)

Can I buy the tests individually, without membership?

No, ZOE tests cannot be bought without a membership. The scientific insights from our tests are powerful, but it's the ZOE programme's membership that turns them into long-lasting habits.

The app gives you access to your personalised ZOE Scores for any food or meal, access to our team of expert nutrition coaches and daily bite-sized lessons designed to help you reach your goals.

Taking the tests alone makes achieving long-term health goals harder for our members, so we do not recommend it.
