Hey PH, This is Ara, Co-Founder of Seed, a microbiome company with the mission to set a new standard of scientific rigor and consumer education in the global probiotics industry. ‘Gut mania’ has put consumers around the world ahead of the science. Despite the ever-increasing number of probiotic supplements, foods, and beverages, consumers are confused about what they are, how they work, and why they should take them. We believe the science of probiotics demands precision, accountability, and efficacy and we're raising the bar in bacteria. Along with my Co-Founder @rajadhir, we've assembled a global ecosystem of leading scientists and doctors with expertise in microbiome science, genomics, metabolomics, gastroenterology, immunology, nutrition, and human clinical research, including our Chief Scientist, Dr. Gregor Reid, who has pioneered the field of probiotics with 35 years of research and chaired the United Nations - World Health Organization panel that wrote the definition of ‘probiotics’. We just launched our first product, the Daily Synbiotic (probiotics + prebiotics), which takes our ‘microbe-systems’ approach to deliver strain-specific benefits beyond gut and digestive health, including cardiovascular, dermatological, immune, and reproductive health. Our female formulation is also the first probiotic to increase folate production. The Daily Synbiotic is available via subscription at seed.com. If you’d like to try it, please use code ARA25 for 25% off your first month. Welcoming all feedback. And our favorite questions are science questions 🤓, so ask away! From my microbes to yours, Ara

@rajadhir @arakatz I take probiotics daily. Why would a consumer like myself switch to your product? Especially since I have the "subscribe & save" function available on Amazon? Thanks so much, product looks great!

@rajadhir @arakatz @pakhzar Which probiotics are you taking from which brands?

@arakatz @suzywillow Hi @pakhzar thanks for the comment and good to hear you’re a user of probiotics, though it’s currently a loose term in the US to describe everything from fermented foods to a wide range of health products. It’s also great you’re a daily user, since probiotics are known ‘transient passengers’ in the gut, with their benefits contingent on daily consumption. US products mostly contain legacy strains from the dairy or dietary supplements industry, with either no clinical support or focused on specific indications (like antibiotic-associated diarrhea). The future of probiotics will zoom into specific strains with mechanistic research targeting a variety of systems in the body. For example, our cardiovascular health strain was screened from thousands of strains to demonstrate it’s mechanistic and in vivo effect. Our strain bank includes probiotic strains banked in Italy, Denmark, UK, France, Belgium, Spain, Japan and the United States- and our platform includes technologies not used by other companies, including a mechanistic model looking at inflammatory pathways developed @Harvard Medical School’s Dept of Genetics. At the end of the day, we want to encourage consumers to ask questions like ‘What strains are in my product?”, “What mechanistic and clinical evidence supports beneficial activity?”, and many more— hope that’s helpful and always happy to talk microbes over @seed

Now a daily customer of the product, and was an early investor in the company. Could not believe more in what Ara, Raja, and team are doing. My gut is happy too.

Hi @arakatz! I'm *sooooo* curious if you're able to share how much it cost to acquire the awesome domain name you've got! It looks like a great product, but my first thought was, "holy crap, how much was seed dot com?!"
arakatzMaker@arakatz · Seed, Co-Founder
@pjrvs That is a very long, interesting story of persistence and creativity :)
Paul Jarvis@pjrvs · Cofounder Fathom + Pico
@arakatz now i'm definitely intrigued!

I was able to get my welcome package yesterday! I'm excited to build a new daily routine and learn while at it! Also an early investor in Seed, pretty incredible to see Ara and Raja's vision come to life. They got my bac💪 more to come!
