Gut Microbiome Test

Gut Microbiome Testing identifies which bacteria live in your gut, how abundant they are and how they affect your body allowing you to optimise your diet.

Only $219 with results in 4-5 weeks

A Gut Microbiome Test identifies which bacteria live in your gut, how abundant they are and how they affect your body. The laboratory analyses the bacteria’s DNA using the latest technology to provide quick and accurate results, available within 4-5 weeks of receiving your sample. Microbiome analysis will show whether your nutrition and gut ecosystem are well balanced or if you need to make changes to your diet to improve your bacterial composition and improve your health.

It is important to bear in mind that only continued healthy eating habits can lead to an improved microbiome composition.

What is the Microbiome?

The human gut is inhabited by a community of approximately 37 trillion different micro-organisms, mostly bacteria, but also fungi and viruses. These micro-organisms make up the gut microbiome. Most micro-organisms in the gut are beneficial and play an important role in digesting food, metabolising vitamins and maintaining your body’s health. A diverse microbiome is essential for maintaining a healthy gut and a healthy body as a whole.

Your gut microbiome community is affected by lifestyle and environmental factors. A long-term absence or imbalance of certain bacteria can lead to health problems such as obesity, digestive problems and autoimmune diseases.

Recent microbiome testing research has led to the microbiome being referred to as “the forgotten organ” due to its role in influencing everything from your mood to the risk of developing serious diseases.

Dog Allergy Testing Kit Review
Hello Team, I would love to thank all involved in testing my dog allergies. Since that test she finally lives her life itch free as it enabled us to avoid products causing her allergic reaction. I am very grateful for this report as her health massively improved after we removed all listed products from her diet. Since that time I have been suggesting other dog owners which battle similar issue to use your service. 5* from Blue.

Dog Allergy Test Kit Review
We had our dog allergy tested with you last year. We were advised that it is not a good enough test by our vet and many others online. This however couldn't be more wrong. We used the results to remove foods from her diet and even hypo-allergenic shampoos etc. Since she turned 1 years old we had her allergy tested by blood at the vet to see if she had out grown any of these allergies. The results were exactly the same as we were given by yourselves. Everything in red she is still allergic to. Without your help I'm not sure how we would of been able to help her in her first year. Especially given that she is allergic to almost everything hypoallergenic.

Dog Allergy Testing Review
Please forward my praise to your superiors with regards to your customer attention - thank you for all the communication at all times, and making sure all OK. Much appreciated. 1 day into eliminating salmon oil from her diet (daily supplement I was giving her for for her arthritis) and the turkey menus she is considerably better, all in 24 hrs. Can’t wait to see how she improves within a few weeks of elimination.
