ZBiotics' mission is to use genetic engineering to build something new: products that improve everyday living in ways people can experience for themselves. ZBiotics is out to create incredible experiences for our customers, and to do so responsibly; giving people the information they need to
make their own informed decisions about our products. It's a new approach to genetic engineering.
ZBiotics makes products for healthy adults who choose to use the power of science to enhance their daily lives. Equal in importance to our science is how we present it. We establish credibility with our customers by not shying away from the science, watering it down, or distorting it. It also means being upfront about our products’ limitations. Accessible means straightforward and clear product explanations that make sense.
Zack, a PhD microbiologist, founded ZBiotics because of the potential genetically engineered probiotics have to improve our daily lives.
By making small changes to a probiotic bacteria’s genetic code, Zack could edit it to do something new and to support our bodies in a specific way.
The possible applications were endless, but Zack decided to start by addressing an age-old problem that most of us have encountered before: that rough morning after a night of drinking.
The science was clear that the next-day effects of drinking are in large part due to an alcohol byproduct called acetaldehyde. As a scientist, he was surprised there weren’t any solutions out there to directly address this problem effectively. So, he invented one: the first-ever genetically engineered probiotic designed to break down a toxic byproduct of alcohol.
But dealing with the aftermath of drinking was only the beginning. ZBiotics is creating a whole new category of products built with engineered probiotics that help our bodies deal with whatever daily life throws our way.
