Microbiome analysis for anyone interested in discovering 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 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 swab which contains an additive that maintains the integrity of the microbial DNA. We send the sample to a NATA accredited lab where the sample is analysed.
A postage paid return satchel is included. In addition you will be sent a wellbeing and lifestyle survey to complete electronically.
We extract the bacterial DNA from your stool sample. We discover and quantify the groups of bacteria present in your gut i.e. Firmicutes, Bacteroidetes, Proteobacteria, Verrucomicrobia, Actinobacteria, Tenericutes, Cyanobacteria, Fusobacteria, etc.
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 be provided on how to bring your unique microbiome back into balance. Here is an example of the analysis section.
