Thrive Inside – C+ [1.45]

See this post for the criteria being used.

Accessibility: A-CSV and FastQ (by special request, not on website)
Significance: C-Ranges for a few taxa only
Reference:  DDiet styles could be selected for actions
Actions: B634 items estimated (only items that increase a taxa)
Evidence: AReferences provided
Benevolence: DSells their own probiotics
Support:  D Multiple reports of incorrect shipments, slow response
Promptness: C 2-3 weeks
Metadata: DNothing
Overtime: DNot provided
Taxa Score: 40% – B Less in common with uBiome
Taxa Scope: 111%More Reported

Actions are for only increasing a small number of Taxa

Note: Many of these bacteria with too high a level are associated with medical conditions.


  • Wellness score above their average – no information on percentile rank
  • Diversity score above their average
  • They use healthy population from the American Gut Project. American Gut only does a few of the bacteria reported by Thryve. Data does not really apply.

When I processed it thru Jason Hawrelak guidelines, more than 50% are of concern and some are overgrowths.

Two Different Scalings?

The site leaves the user confused because it gives two different percentages for many items as shown below.

Their ranges for Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium are in major disagreement with the above.

In discussion, it was suggested that this may be the percentage of the ranges of values that they have seen. Assuming this is the case, we can compute the actual ranges (per Jason numbers)

  • Lactobacillus: 0.261% – 0.88% (range is inside of Jason’s range)
  • Bifidobacterium: 0.9% – 1.33% (range is entirely below Jason’s range)

Medical Material Provided

No ranges (or even averages)

I not sure how they missed over 30 conditions for Bacteroides
Eight conditions for Anaerostipes
And 29 conditions for Faecalibacterium

Web Site is Sluggish

Lots of spinning devices that often went on for minutes.

Bottom Line

Some well documented actions. For most taxa, no reference range or even average from their samples are given. Test results are usable for processing elsewhere. They document the strain of probiotics they suggest and provide explanations.

They have some good strengths, but also weakness which I hope they will address.
