BIOHM Health was founded by Dr. Ghannoum after his breakthrough discovery that bad bacteria and bad fungi work together to create digestive imbalance. Dr. Ghannoum realized that today’s probiotics had not been engineered to specifically address the role fungi plays in digestive health. As a result, he created BIOHM Health: The first company that addresses the gut’s total microbiome of both bacteria and fungi. BIOHM Health was founded to be the first total microbiome company. BIOHM’s mission is simple: engineer elegant products and services that address the total microbiome of both bacteria and fungi, allowing you to maintain total digestive health.
