The intestinal microbiome, which mainly consists of bacteria, has been found to have a very significant impact on our overall health. A diverse and balanced microbiome can help prevent a number of diseases such as metabolic diseases (obesity, type 2 diabetes), digestive problems, intestinal diseases, autoimmune diseases and even heart diseases.
The composition of the intestinal microbiome is affected by several different factors such as diet, medications, different medical conditions, lifestyles and environmental factors.
Our gut microbiome analysis allows us to study the bacteria in your gut as well as identify which bacteria live in your gut, how many there are, and how they affect your body. Your sample will be analyzed from the DNA of your microbiome in the laboratory using the latest technology to obtain accurate results. Microbiome analysis can show if your nutrition and intestinal ecosystem are in balance or if you need to make changes to your diet to affect bacterial composition and to improve your intestinal health. We recommend to repeat the test after 4-6 months if you have made corrective changes to your diet. Gut Microbiome test 1 contains one test and Gut Microbiome test 2 contains two tests, the latter of which is the control test to see possible changes in your microbiome after dietary and lifestyle changes.
Taking the test is easy. You will receive the sample collection box with instructions directly to your home within a few days of your order. Taking a stool sample is easy and you will send the sample back to us in the same sample box.
You will receive your results in about 3 weeks after your sample reaches us. The results you can download from our server using the e-mail link and password provided to you.
The report tells you about the condition of your gut microbiome, but if you want a diagnosis, you should consult a doctor. The report is not a substitute for a visit to a doctor or a doctor’s advice or services.
