Microba Insights

Why test your gut microbiome?

Microba insights utilises metagenomic DNA sequencing to provide a clear accurate picture of your gut micro-organisms; therefore, providing individualised nutritional treatment plans.

Microba metagenomic DNA sequencing detect over 28,000 microbial species and establishes how they may contribute to health and disease.  

Diet plays a huge role in your gut microbial composition and metabolite production and vice versa; exhibiting functional effects both locally and systemically in your body.

Understanding your gut microbiome provides significant insights into your health and will improve lifestyle choices:

  •  Digestive function Gut bacteria break down fibre – keeping gas, bloating, constipation, and diarrhea at bay.
  •  Immunity – Gut bacteria assist in the preparation and training of the immune system, which can help fight gut inflammation.
  •  Metabolism – Bacterial substances in the gut can affect metabolic functions, such as appetite and glucose regulation.

The purpose of gut microbiome analysis is to provide targeted, evidence-based decisions regarding gut health and to:

  •  Assess your baseline – Establish a detailed profile of your microbiome. Better understand the current state of your gut.
  •  Inform your choices – Explore your primary health goals with practical dietary suggestions. Plan and target specific areas for improvement.  
  • Monitor the impact – Observe the effect of the changes you make and track how your microbiome shifts over time with further microbiome analysis, if required.
  • See what microorganisms live inside your gut – Find out the diverse bacteria, archaea, fungi and parasites present in your gut microbiome and what they are doing.
  • Your gut’s health potential – Investigate how your microbiome may be influencing additional areas of your health.
