Affordable microbiome analysis for anyone interested to discover the types of bacteria in their gut so that diet and lifestyle can be tailored accordingly. This information can be used for general wellbeing, sports performance and quality of life. We offer comprehensive diet and lifestyle recommendations focused on the latest food science and microbiome research.
Our sample kit contains everything you need to hygienically collect your stool sample including a test tube which contains a preservative that will maintain the integrity of the microbial DNA for multiple months in ambient temperatures. We then send the kit to our NATA accredited lab where the sample is reviewed for the microbial DNA quality.
A postage paid return satchel is also included. In addition you will be sent a health and lifestyle survey to complete electronically.
We extract the bacterial DNA from your stool sample. Then, we discover and quantify the groups of bacteria present in your gut i.e. Firmicutes, Bacteroidetes, Proteobacteria, Verrucomicrobia, Actinobacteria, Tenericutes, Cyanobacteria, Fusobacteria, others.
An easy to understand report explaining the groups of bacteria in your gut will be provided in approximately 4 - 6 weeks of receiving your stool sample.
This report includes the relative abundance of key bacterial groups and a bacterial diversity score (from 1 to 10).
General diet and life style recommendations will also be provided on how to bring your unique microbiome back into balance. Here is an example of the analysis section.
