Sun Genomics has partnered with Arizona State University’s Autism/Asperger’s Research Program and the Biodesign Institute.
Through this partnership, Sun Genomics will share its findings on the potential connection between the gut microbiome and Autism Spectrum Disorder using our product, Floré (Research Edition).
Floré Precision Probiotics combines whole genome sequencing with custom formulated probiotics to support a healthy gut microbiome.
Floré Research Edition
Suitable for those on the Autism Spectrum. For this study, we ask that you commit to at least 2 rounds of custom probiotics and complete required study surveys as you’ll be a part of furthering Autism research.
As part of this study, the participant will take custom probiotics for at least 6 months and will take 2 microbiome gut tests ($700 total). You will also be eligible to receive up to $50 off the second purchase if you complete the requested surveys.

The Gut Microbiome and Autism Spectrum Disorder
Recent scientific research indicated that between 30 and 50% of all people with Autism Spectrum Disorder suffer from chronic gastrointestinal (GI) problems.(1) This chronic discomfort can cause irritability, decrease attention and learning, and negatively impact behavior. Floré provides customers with custom formulated probiotics specifically crafted to assist these types of GI issues.
The team of researchers at Arizona State University compared the differences in the microbiome of children with autism and other typically developing children and found that children with autism had lower levels of gut diversity. What’s more is that researchers found the gut microbiome of children with autism had lower level of certain helpful bacteria, including Bifidobacteria and Prevotella.

What is Floré?
Sun Genomics’ first product, Floré, is the only probiotic with the critical secret ingredient to ensure it works. That secret ingredient is you. Floré, combines gut microbiome DNA analysis with precision probiotics custom formulated based on a persons’ unique DigestiveDNA™.
The customer’s microbiome journey begins when they register for the customer portal and receive their microbiome sampling Box. Once the customer provides a stool sample, Sun Genomics’ scientists extract the DNA and apply our patented methodology to create a formula for custom probiotics tailored to your specific needs. The customer then receives a three-month supply of precision probiotics manufactured in our GMP facility, as well as their Microbiome Analysis Report through an online customer interface which allows you to discover exactly what microbes you have living in your gut.

After we finish analyzing your gut microflora, your Floré custom gut probiotics will be sent, cold shipped, straight to your front door. Our formulations team looks at your report, as well as the study surveys you filled out about you or your child’s autism, to create a custom formula that will target the main GI and/or behavioral issues you identified.
Sun Genomics was founded by CEO, Sunny Jain in 2016 and the Company's story began with the birth of his son. When his son began suffering from GI distress, Sunny went to find a probiotic. Standing in front of the probiotic aisle i.e. the "Wall of Confusion", Sunny quickly realized there wasn't a probiotic solution available. This is because his son's gut e.g. microbiome is unique. Instead of choosing a supplement at random, Sunny took tons off the shelf that day and instead of going home, he went to the lab and began testing probiotics, sequencing his son's microbiome, and researching strains that best matched his son's microbiome analysis. This is our story.
