“If you look at microbiome and the human microbiome project when it was launched in 2008, it’s been growing about 35% year over year. Even though we’re kind of early on in the microbiome research and science, the pace of how fast it’s growing is pretty staggering.”
My guest is Richard Lin, CEO of Thryve (www.thryveinside.com). Thryve is a microbiome genomics and probiotic therapeutics company with an end goal of indexing the entire world’s microbes to improve health & wellness. Richard started Thryve after antibiotic overuse. He has made it his mission to learn about the microbiome to improve human health.
By starting Thryve, Richard’s goal is to provide a platform where citizen scientist, academic researchers, government institutions, and pharmaceutical companies can come together and halt the progression of microbiome related diseases.
Richard has been featured on MIT Technology Review, CEO/CFO Magazine, Small Business Reviews, Medscape, Health 2.0, eHealth Radio, Silicon Valley Business Journal, and has been featured in a Brazilian documentary.
This conversation is both an introduction and dive into the field of microbiome testing. For the purposes of this conversation, Richard and I focused on the Gut Microbiome.
One of my favorite tools for cognitive enhancement, especially after long plan rides, is Blue Cannatine. The delivery mechanism is unique (buccle troche). It is especially effective for me on improving short-term memory, focus, and verbal fluency. It’s the closest thing that I found to NZT and I think you guys should try it out.

I’ve been fascinated by blood flow restriction training for a very long time. And the guys at Bstrong did some really cool innovations with their technology. I use it just about every day, high reps, low number of sets, a few exercises. And in 20 minutes I have a fantastic workout, which I know is triggering an anabolic response and who doesn’t like that. So if you want to get your Bstrong blood flow restriction device, head on over to bstrong.training and enter the code BOOMER for 10% off.View Company
