Gut microbiome testing is a process that analyses the microorganisms (good and bad bacteria, fungi, and viruses) living in your digestive tract. A gut microbiome test provides insights into the diversity and composition of your gut microbiota and its role in digestion, immunity, and overall health.
How does a gut microbiome test work?
Our test requires swabbing a used piece of toilet paper after passing a stool which can be done at home. The sample is then sent to our lab who analyse it to identify certain microorganisms, their types and quantities to create a complete picture of your microbiome health.
