What information can you expect from CG’s NEW Microbiome Test?

Here at Chuckling Goat, we’re passionate about gut health, and about educating and empowering you to take control of yours so you can live a happier, healthier life.

This is why we have been working hard behind the scenes on our very own Microbiome Test, created in partnership with Cambridge Genomic Services, University of Cambridge, and our Scientific Advisory Board – an interdisciplinary mix of doctors, professors, oncologists, pharmacists, biochemists and bioinformaticians, all connected by an interest in the human microbiome and a passion for pushing the edges of creative, rigorous science.

If you’ve ever had food poisoning, a UTI, a dental infection, a hospital-acquired infection or a skin infection, acne, asthma, allergies, chronic fatigue, anxiety or depression (to name just a few!), improving your microbiome (gut) is a safe and effective way to work with these conditions – and a Microbiome Test is a great place to start!

The test and FREE follow-up consultation with one of our Nutritional Therapists, will provide you with evidence-based answers on how to improve your gut health.

So, what information can you expect when your results come in? Chuckling Goat’s NEW Microbiome Test examines and ‘scores’ the following seven key areas:

1. Diversity

Like any ecosystem, the health of your gut ecosystem is tested by its diversity. A diverse ecosystem is a resilient ecosystem.

The more different types of microbes inside your gut, the more supported your immunity, digestion, resilience to pathogens, metabolic health and mental well-being will be.1

2. Probiotics

Probiotics are live microorganisms that provide health benefits when consumed in adequate amounts.2 They are often referred to as “good bacteria”.

Probiotics are important markers for well-being as they perform many critical functions inside your gut microbiome, which in turn controls the health of your skin, mood, digestion, energy, breathing and systemic pain levels.3

3. Prebiotics

A prebiotic is a type of substance that serves as a food source for beneficial bacteria,4 or probiotics, in the gut. Prebiotics and probiotics work together in synergy, like flowers and bees, to promote a healthy gut ecosystem. The primary function of prebiotics is to selectively stimulate the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria.

4. Postbiotics

When your probiotic gut bugs are happy and healthy, they ferment fibre-based prebiotics and produce anti-inflammatory molecules called postbiotics. Postbiotics perform many beneficial roles in your system including helping to regulate and balance immune response, reduce inflammation, improve digestion and inhibit the growth of harmful pathogens.

5. Pathogens

Gut pathogens are microorganisms that can cause infections or diseases in the gastrointestinal tract, specifically the intestines. These pathogens are bacteria that have the potential to disrupt the normal functioning of the digestive system and lead to various symptoms and health issues.

6. Mental Wellness

The “gut-brain axis” is the link between the gut microbiota and the brain. The microbes in your digestive system impact mood, emotion, and behaviour.5 They can also affect your personality and social interactions, as well as other aspects of your physical and mental health.

7. Systemic Wellness

Systemic wellness is an integrated approach to well-being that recognises the interconnection of your gut microbiome’s anti-inflammatory potential, the gut-brain connection, and your microbiome resilience.
