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 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 participate in weekly 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.
Our Floré probiotics are 100% natural, vegan (by request), gluten-free, non-GMO, and formulated without preservatives. Probiotics must be refrigerated.
- Participant must be clinically diagnosed with ASD by a medical professional (must provide official documents)
- Participant must have not antibiotics in last 2 months
- Participant must not have any changes in medications, nutritional supplements, therapies, in the last two months, or any plans to change them during the first 3 months of probiotic treatment.
The Gut Microbiome and Autism Spectrum Disorder
Recent scientific research indicated that between 30 and 50% of all people with autism 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 kit. 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.

Our Floré probiotics are living micro-organisms designed to flourish in your digestive tract. When we ship them to you, they come in a cooler as well with a cold pack to keep them at an optimal temperature, so they’re comfortable.
We have run several rigorous testing to understand the survivability of the strains under different temperature levels. Most probiotic strains can endure temperatures up to 112 F for short periods of time and are perfectly happy at a body temperature of 98 F with the proper nutrient supply your body gives them. Prolonged exposure to non-refrigerated temperatures for 7 days or greater may reduce your product’s potency and efficacy.
So if your probiotics arrive slightly warm (especially during the warmer seasons), don’t panic; they’re still safe to digest. Just make sure you refrigerate them once you receive your package.
