“You are not what you eat, you are what your microbioms can absorb”
Like your fingerprint, your gut microbiome is unique to you. More than 70% of our immune system is related to our gut microbiome.
This test analyses the health of the gut microbiome i.e. the populations of bacteria and other organisms residing in our gut.
Our at-home test can help you improve your gut health by providing you with detailed information about the abundance of your gut bacteria. Moreover, you will get instructions on how to achieve or maintain a balanced microbial community. Indeed, a diverse and balanced microbiome composition in your gut is essential for your overall health.
Furthermore, this test is paired with personalised dietary recommendations to make you feel better. Additionally, you will get a private consultation with our Wellness Therapist to explain your results and answer any questions you might have.
Immunity: 70% to 80% of our immune system is located in the gut.
Skin health: Friendly bacteria produce beneficial substances in the body, as opposed to the toxins produced by pathogenic bacteria which can contribute to skin issues.
Mental health: Our gut and brain communicate with each other. Many mood-altering neurotransmitters are produced in the gut, including the ‘happy hormone’ serotonin. So a healthy gut is important for our own happiness.
Digestion: The microbes living in the intestines produce different enzymes that help us to digest our food and absorb the nutrients from the food we consume.
Energy levels: Certain strains of bacteria can make B-vitamins, which are known to help with energy levels.
We will send you a Microbiome test box with some clear instructions:
1) A very small fecal sample is collected in the dedicated tube;
2) Your sample is, then, analysed in the lab using Illumina technology. Consequently, the DNA fragments in your sample are studied to identify your microbes and evaluate their proportion in the microbiome.
Please note that it may take 4–8 weeks before your results are available. Every sample is analysed on a case-by-case basis and we will notify you personally if there are any changes to this timeframe.
