Ayble Partners with Ness Card to Bring Digital Gut Health Platform to its Cardmembers

  • Ness Cardmembers earn exclusive points and rewards for using Ayble’s proprietary health platform to address GI symptoms and discomfort for improved quality of life

  • Ayble joins the Ness Card roster of leading health and wellness brands as company builds health-first credit card and wellness rewards marketplace to inspire healthy actions - and make it easier to live well  

BOSTON and NEW YORK, July 25, 2023Ayble Health, a precision health platform for patients with chronic gastrointestinal (GI) conditions, today announced a partnership with Ness Card, the premium, points-based credit card that aims to incentivize wellness. Through this strategic partnership, Ness Cardmembers will be able to redeem points for Ayble memberships, making GI wellness more rewarding and accessible for users. 

Upwards of 70 million Americans suffer from GI diseases like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). While there is no cure for either condition, research has shown that nutrition management can play a critical role in providing symptom relief for those suffering from chronic GI diseases. Built using the world’s largest GI behavioral health data set, the Ayble app provides personalized nutrition plans and comprehensive trigger food insights to help digestive patients live full lives and manage the pain associated with recurrent symptoms like bloating, abdominal pain, constipation and diarrhea. 

Ness, the next great credit card company offering the first premium health and wellness rewards card, issued by The Bank of Missouri and powered by Mastercard®, aims to help members build better habits—mentally, physically and emotionally—by giving points and rewards for healthy actions and spending. Ness Cardmembers earn 5x points for transactions at healthy merchants (think: grocery stores, gyms, athleisure retailers, salons, spas, medical offices and more) and 2x everywhere else. They can also earn up to 20K points annually for sleeping, meditating, working out and getting steps in. Points can then be redeemed in their in-app marketplace for rewards from wellness brands, including sweetgreen, HOKA, Classpass, SpaFinder, Daily Harvest, CorePower and now, Ayble—plus 50+ more.

Ayble’s app-based virtual care platform leverages proprietary machine-learning algorithms to identify trigger foods so users can discover the root cause of flares and alter dietary habits accordingly to provide long-term symptom relief or remission. Members also have access to a comprehensive gut health tracker and a board-certified health and wellness coach for additional guidance and support. 

“As someone who’s had to navigate GI symptoms for the better part of a decade, I know how important it is to be proactive in your healthcare. Unfortunately, access to evidence-based tools in the digestive health landscape is challenging, and affordability is always an issue. We’re proud to partner with Ness to provide their Cardmembers with a clinically-proven way to manage their gut health in the comfort of their own home, and be appropriately rewarded for doing so,” said Sam Jactel, founder and CEO of Ayble Health. “Ness and Ayble’s missions are extremely well aligned and we’re excited to build new financial instruments to help patients like me get better and stay better longer. ”

“More and more, health and wellness are guiding principles for how many people spend their time, energy and money. Ness Card is the first of its kind to reward users for positive lifestyle choices and purchases via our expansive offering of benefits and exclusive partnerships,” said Derek Flanzraich, founder and CEO of Ness. “Gut health plays a pivotal role in a wide range of health outcomes and we’re proud to partner with Ayble, which has built an empathetic, comprehensive, evidence-based ecosystem of support for digestive health patients like many of our Ness Cardmembers.”

Building on momentum from recently announced partnerships with both Parsley Health and Frontrow, Ayble is steadfast in its commitment to making gut health and wellness more accessible to millions of Americans suffering from chronic GI symptoms. Ayble is the first and only gastroenterology company accredited by the American Nutrition Association and the Validation Institute. In its Outcomes Report, the Institute highlighted that Ayble Health’s precision nutrition program is 2x more effective than in-person or virtual dietetics and drives 30-40% better adherence to recommendations.
