Microbiome testing and results

There are many products that claim to have billions of live bacteria in their drinks but how do we know if those billions are getting to the right place and having any effect?


Here at Rhythm Health we don’t just want to test our products to say we have billions of truly live bacteria in our drinks, we want to go much further by measuring the incredible impact they have on your own bacteria that live inside of us from birth (also known as commensal bacteria). The unique live bacteria in our drinks comes from Rhythm cultures and is created through small batch fermentation which is then put into our drinks live before being high pressure processed.


Current scientific research shows that by building up and changing your gut landscape and increasing your diversity or gut army (as we like to think of them) will in turn help your gut fight disease, obesity, mental health issues and much more. As Hippocrates said “All Disease Begins in The Gut.”


Therefore we decided to strip everything back and look to our ancestors and mother nature for the answer and in doing so created a first of its kind, 100% natural and raw pressed high potency coconut kefir. If we put the right stuff in we will run at our optimum. You wouldn’t put diesel in a petrol car and it’s the same principle with our bodies Living inside of your gut are 300 to 500 different kinds of bacteria containing nearly 2 million genes. Paired with other tiny organisms like viruses and fungi, they make what’s known as the microbiota, or the microbiome – more info on this by clicking here.


Like a fingerprint, each person's microbiota is unique: The mix of bacteria in your body is different from everyone else’s mix. It’s determined partly by your mother’s microbiota, the environment that you’re exposed to at birth and partly from your diet and lifestyle.


Therefore we decided to take a volunteer who was born by c section and has been suffering for years with bloating and stomach issues. We tested her microbiome before and after taking a 100 ml of our Life shot 200 billion everyday for 2 months and the results were outstanding.


Ms Seel who did the test went from a diversity of 1.5/10 to 5.5/10 on one test and on a slightly more in depth one up to a diversity of 8/10. This is demonstrated on the below graph.

Diversity index in time

Ms Seel not only had an increased diversity which in turn boosted her disease protection but freed her from the terrible bloating and inflammation she was having before. Before Ms Seel took the test she was very susceptible to Crohns disease which was minimised after increasing her diversity.


This is the tip of the iceberg and are doing more tests to show how effective our product is. For more information or queries on this please email us at sales@rhythmhealth.co.uk.
