The gut microbiome is a community of bacteria living in your colon. It plays an important role in the body, supporting proper digestion, protecting you against pathogenic bacteria and strengthening your immune system.
The bacteria in your gut produce vitamins and vital short-chain fatty acid that supports intestinal health.
Our test will show you which ratio of bacteria in your microbiome is able to synthesise vitamins from the B and K groups.
Both your body and your bacteria need these nutrients. If your microbiome does not have enough of the right bacteria, you might not be getting enough vitamins.
Your microbiome can help you determine if you have a balanced diet. Atlas Microbiome Test will show you whether your microbiome is receiving enough nutrients from your diet to work effectively.
Dietary fibre is an important part of a balanced diet.
Your gut bacteria break down these substances into a short-chain fatty acid that helps protect the gut lining and prevent inflammation.
Our test will show you if your microbiome is receiving enough dietary fibre to perform this task.
The gut bacteria of sick people tend to have specific ratios and types of bacteria.
Our test will determine the composition of your microbiome and compare it to those of patients with obesity, type II diabetes, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and coronary heart disease. Based on these results, we can determine the level of disease protection offered by your current microbiome.
You will also learn which foods you can add to your diet in order to enhance the growth of healthy bacteria, which help protect against disease.
Microbiome diversity ensures the stability of your gut’s bacterial community.
Health factors (like poor diet or antibiotics) can reduce the levels of normal bacteria in your gut. When you have a diverse range of microbes, others can take over the functions that were performed by them.
Our test will analyse the diversity of your microbiome and provide food recommendations to help you enhance its richness.
There are trillions of bacteria living on and inside our bodies. In fact, the volume of DNA contained in your microbiome far exceeds the human DNA of your body. Scientists even consider the gut microbiome to be a separate organ.
