Research with Chiyo

Creating Generational Health

Chiyo is partnering with clinicians, academic experts, and thought leaders to develop our first-of-its-kind research on nutrition for women's health.

Let's raise the standard of maternal nutrition.

We are always looking to collaborate with the scientific community to develop best-in-class, and long overdue, research on nutrition's impact on physical, mental & emotional health in the maternal health journey.

Collaborations Underway

[Underway] Nutritional Psychiatry for Postpartum

Nutritional psychiatry uses food as a treatment for mental health disorders, recognizing how integral nutrition is to our mental health. While attention to nutritional psychiatry is increasing in general, the use of food and nutrition to treat maternal mental health during the postpartum period specifically is less common. To address this gap, Chiyo is partnering with Mavida Health on a first-of-its-kind study guided by nutritional psychiatry principles where we will test how Chiyo’s nutrition program paired with mental health treatment can support mothers struggling with postpartum depression and anxiety. We will use these findings to better support women in the months after birth and improve the standard of maternal care.

[Recruiting] Nutrition's Impact on Fertility

Increasing research highlights nutrition as a key modifiable target during fertility treatment that may lead to improved treatment outcomes. However, existing evidence is largely based on cross-sectional, observational studies with substantial heterogeneity in measurement of nutrition (e.g., single nutrient focus, variation in measurement of diet), limiting understanding of how nutrition impacts fertility. Additionally, there are few comprehensive guides that support women’s nutritional needs during fertility treatment.

We are looking to partner with researchers, clinicians and/or fertility clinics to better understand how Chiyo’s nutrition program can optimize fertility treatment outcomes (e.g., time to conceive, ART cycle outcomes, live birth rates), we propose a partnership study that will measure how nutritional needs influence fertility outcomes and women’s experiences during fertility treatment.
