How the test works?

The KIT

Once you have ordered it, you will receive our genetic analysis collection kit in the comfort of your home. Inside you will find the instructions to follow for collecting the stool sample in a few simple steps, how to send the kit to our laboratory and all the forms to fill out to authorize us to proceed with the analysis.

THE ANALYSIS

The analysis is performed through the extraction of bacterial DNA from the faeces and the NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) sequencing of specific hypervariable (16S) gene regions, which allow to produce a taxonomic classification of the bacterial populations present in the intestine and, therefore, to know the health of your microbiome.

THE RESULTS

After 15-20 working days, you can download the result of your test, using the appropriate credentials. While not having a diagnostic value, the report provides an excellent picture of the types of bacteria that colonize your intestine and is an essential tool, to be evaluated with a nutritionist, to receive personalized dietary advice and recommendations for any supplements to take.

What is the Microbiome?

The microbiome is the set of the genetic heritage of the microbiota, that is the microorganisms that populate the intestine and that live in symbiosis and in constant interaction with the organism.

In the intestine of each individual there are billions of bacterial cells, but also viruses, parasites and fungi that coexist in balance with each other and with the body, guaranteeing a beneficial and preventive state for numerous intestinal and systemic diseases.
The analysis of the microbiome is, therefore, a fundamental molecular investigation tool to find out which bacteria populate your intestine and what their function is. This allows you to receive a complete report on your intestinal well-being, which is useful to strengthen your microbiome and better manage your health, your nutrition and your physical activity according to it.

What should you expect from the test result?

PERSONALIZED DIET

You will receive dietary advice, which you can discuss with your nutritionist, to improve the health of your microbiome.

BACTERIAL COMPOSITION

You will receive a complete list of the bacteria present in your intestinal microbiome (%) and enterotype to which they belong.

PROBIOTICS AND SUPPLEMENTS

Thanks to the calculation of the presence of beneficial organisms (probiotics), together with your nutritionist, you will be able to evaluate a possible personalized integration.

The microbiota changes over time, which is why it is recommended to repeat the test following major changes in diet and / or lifestyle. It is advisable to check every 6 months if you change your diet or take probiotics.
