Microbiome Composition Testing
If you've been listening to the news, or you've been on the internet, you've probably heard of the microbiome, or the gut bacteria. In the last few years, there has been an explosion of research into
The microbiome is a term for the collection of bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites that live in your gut. But don't freak out, this is totally normal, and many of these microbes are actually very healthy, and without them we can get sick.
Over the course of our lives, the levels of different bacteria can change, mostly due to illness, antibiotics, and diet. This can lead to increased unhealthy microbes which increase your risk of chronic health conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and some cancers.
For this reason, knowing about the microbes that make up your gut bacteria can help you get and stay healthy. Microba does just this, testing your microbiome and providing advice for how to improve your microbiome through lifestyle changes, which we incorporate into our recommendations.
