Microbiome analysis: the key to the health of our future

The dynamically evolving branch of modern world health preservation is formed by therapies based on the examination and modification of the gut microbiome. It is becoming increasingly clear nowadays that the symbiosis we form with the microbial community residing in our gut significantly determines our everyday well-being. Although in the coming years, countless new data and knowledge are expected to emerge in this field, the analysis of the microbiome already serves as an effective guide for understanding our health status and addressing remediable issues.

What is the microbiome

In a broader approach, the microbiome represents a community of microbial life forms that includes bacteria, fungi, viruses, other eukaryotes, and archaea, which coexist in one space at a time. However, most commonly, we refer to the gut’s microbiome when discussing these communities. The human gut is home to approximately 100 trillion microbial cells, while the human body itself contains 30-40 trillion of its own cells. It is therefore understandable that the microbiome community has a significant impact on the processes of human life.

The life forms within the gut microbiome are in constant and dynamic interaction with humans through their presence and the substances they produce. The composition of the gut microbiome is influenced by numerous factors, including primarily diet, lifestyle, physical activity, stress, and to a lesser extent, medications and even genetics. 

Less is more - but not for the microbiome

The alterations in the microbiome with a negative health impact are referred to as dysbiosis. In this condition, there can be a decrease in diversity (species richness), meaning that the gut is inhabited by significantly fewer types of microbes compared to a healthy state. Diversity is a key indicator of gut health, and a more diversified community indicates a more favorable condition. Sometimes the richness may be adequate, but the overgrowth of even only one species can raise concerns and is referred to as dysbiosis.

The gut is not the only one

It may come as no surprise that the entire gastrointestinal system harbors microbiomes. The composition of the microbial community differs between the oral cavity, stomach, small intestine, and large intestine. However, it is worth noting that various organs throughout the body also have their own characteristic microbiomes, such as the lungs or the skin.

The gut is not the only one

All intertwined - the second brain

The gut serves not only as a primary center for digestion but also as a crucial hub for the nervous and immune systems, earning it the nickname "the second brain" in recent years. It works in close connection with the brain for neural control and interacts with the liver for metabolic processes. This communication gives rise to various interconnected pathways:

  • gut-brain axis
  • gut-liver axis
  • gut-skin axis
  • gut-lung axis

What will you learn from the analysis?

From our detailed, interactive report you will learn:

  • Which species inhabit your gut
  • The diversity of the gut microbiota, whether an adequate number and ratios of microbes are present
  • The presence of dominant species, which implicates poor gut health
  • The presence of rare, pathogenic strains that may have been previously undetected in other tests
  • The production of harmful substances in the gut that may pose a health threat
  • Whether health-protective metabolites are being produced in sufficient quantities
  • The presence of indicator species or metabolites of certain diseases (such as metabolic disorders, metabolic syndrome, histamine sensitivity, inflammatory bowel disease) 

For the interpretation of the report, reach out to our specialist who will provide personalized nutritional solutions to improve the condition of your gut. 

When should you have your microbiome tested?

Testing the microbiome can be beneficial for all individuals, regardless of any present symptoms. And certainly, it is not only for those with gastrointestinal health issues. It can serve as a useful guide in various situations such as:

  • Abdominal obesity and deteriorating lipid profiles
  • Hormonal issues like PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) or estrogen dominance
  • Patients who have been extensively examined by multiple specialists without finding a solution to their problems
  • Unexplained fatigue and psychological issues
  • Acne
  • Persistent digestive problems that do not resolve
  • Difficulty gaining or losing weight 

While microbiome analysis currently does not serve as a diagnostic test, it can provide valuable insights into many problems that cannot be replaced by other tests such as blood tests or imaging.
