Delightful health / PRODUCT

Mela is a service company which supplies chocolates with bacterial cocktails, specifically designed for your health. It monitors your bacterial needs by using a disposable Gutbot, an electronic pill which measures your microbiota from inside your body.
 
By adjusting our gut microbiota we can reduce the impact of stress, improve our sleeping cycle, control sugar and lipid metabolism, improve our mood state and reduce the excruciating symptoms of digestive problems. 

THE EXPERIENCE

Chocolates have a different textures to indicate, the areas of the user's health that are being targeted. An interface displays our users' gut progressions and information from other health trackers .

Special thanks to Kirsten Jensen and Dr.Paul Freemont's Synthetic Biology Lab at Imperial College of London for their time and collaboration.
