What is the microbiome?
The microbiome is the collective name for the enormous colonies of microorganisms, both beneficial and neutral, that coexist with the human body, mainly inside your gut. There are trillions of bacteria (10 to the 14th) inhabiting your gut microbiome. All those living organisms have a huge impact on your health.
Your gut microbiome impacts how well you digest your food, and how many nutrients you are able to absorb. It also controls the function of your immune system, protects the body from pathogenic microbes and helps stabilise weight, improve mood and increase stress resistance. The composition of your gut bacteria depends on what you eat every day, meaning the everybody has a unique microbiome profile. It can also be influenced by other factors such as your living environment, antibiotics and stress. Even if you eat a good diet, your microbiome might still lack the ability to synthesise specific vitamins or breakdown dietary fibre.
The microbiome has been a mysterious place – until now!
Our affordable home test kits will give you the answers you’ve been waiting for: How healthy is my microbiome? Are the good bugs or the bad bugs in charge? Do I have a biofilm-forming pathogen infection? Which foods should I be eating to improve my microbiome? Your gut ecosystem is under constant attack by antibiotics, sugar, stress and environmental toxins, all of which damage your gut microbes just as pouring bleach into a river kills the fish. Microbiome testing will analyse the diversity and health of your inner ecosystem, and allow us to create a Personal Action Plan to boost your gut health.
Am I eating a wide enough variety of foods?
The health of any ecosystem is tested by its diversity. A healthy gut microbiome will have a wide diversity of different strains. To support this bacterial diversity, you need to be eating a wide diversity of specific foods as well. Checking your diversity score will show us any damage that your microbiome has sustained from antibiotics, sugar, stress and environmental toxins. This damage can be repaired with your Personal Action Plan.
Am I eating enough fibre each day?
The WHO recommends 30 grams of fibre per day – yet the average British adult is consuming only 10-15 grams! Your gut bugs thrive on resistant fibre, breaking them down into short-chain fatty acids that help protect the gut lining and prevent inflammation. Microbiome testing will show you if your microbiome is receiving enough dietary fibre to perform effectively.
Do I have high levels of biofilm-forming pathogens?
If you have ever had food poisoning, UTIs, or a dental/skin infection, it’s possible that some of the bacteria from the acute phase of the infection have migrated into your gut and set up shop there under an antibiotic-resistant “biofilm.” As your immune system tries and fails to get rid of these intruders, you may begin to experience autoimmune symptoms. The Microbiome Test will detect these pathogens, and your Nutritional Therapist will make recommendations on ways to inhibit them.
How does it work?
Your test kit will be shipped to your door. You provide the bio-sample and ship it to the lab, where your results will be processed within 4-5 weeks. When your results are ready, our qualified nutritionist will talk you through the results, in a free private consultation.
Why is it important?
Your microbiome is as unique as your fingerprint. The mix of bacteria in your body is different from everyone else’s mix. It’s determined partly by your mother’s microbiota, the environment that you’re exposed to at birth and partly from your diet and lifestyle. To find out how to boost your gut health, you need to know how your individual microbiome is performing, so you can find out exactly what you need to do in order to support it.
Complement your kefir journey.
When you put trillions of really live fresh probiotic cultures into the gut with their own prebiotic soluble fibre, you empower your gut to fight back against threats like infection and pathogens. Just as in the planetary ecosystems around us, a healthy microbiome is a diverse microbiome. The more strains of beneficial bacteria and yeast inside your gut, the stronger your microbiome. Learn which foods and vitamins will help your kefir do its good work inside your system.
