How CareGut™ works

  1. Employers design a CareGut program where they select the interval of gut health biometric testing and inclusion of a personalized soluble fiber.
  2. Employees sign up to the designed CareGut program on any desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile device. Employees can even add products and services not covered in the program for an additional cost.
  3. Employees receive to their mailbox the selected microbiome sample kits and personalized soluble fiber supplements.
  4. Employees take a sample of their gut microbiome once a month and send it to Carbiotix in a preregistered vial and prepaid envelope. A key habit building activity for increased retention.
  5. Every month the gut microbiome sample sent by employees is analyzed at Carbiotix to determine their Fiber Loving Bacteria Index (FLB).
  6. Employees get an update of their FLB index every month and can track the impact of their personalized fiber or changes to their diet and lifestyle. Data driven, evidence based personalized feedback reinforces increased motivation and engagement through education.
  7. Employees who use a personalized fiber supplement will have their fiber modified based on their FLB results with the goal of optimizing their gut health. Personalization and optimization contributes to increased retention and engagement.
  8. Employers can track anonymous and aggregated employee gut health biometric trends to assess in real-time the impact of the CareGut program on employee gut health, as well as determine correlations with sick days, productivity and overall healthcare costs.
