Gut health Microbiome analysis

The role of the microbiome and its effect on human health, as well as it impact on immune system and disease onset, is a topic of many recent scientific studies. Special attention is given to the bacterial composition of the colon, the largest reservoir of bacteria in the human body. It has been found that a multitude of interrelations between bacterial species, genera and communities play a role in the pathogens of numerous non-communicable diseases.

Who will benefit from the test?

  • Healthy people – the test can reveal early changes in the intestinal microbiome, which may precede disease development even before the onset of clinical symptoms.

  • People with chronic functional gastrointestinal disorders who have non-specific symptoms, such as bloating and stool disorders, as well as those at risk for metabolic disease.
  • People who have undergone a course of antibiotic treatment prescribed by their doctor. Here, the bacterial composition might change even after a single dose of antimicrobial drugs. The test helps track microbiome recovery and and make longevity adjustments where necessary.
  • People who have run the test before undergoing antibiotic treatment. Here the test may indicate more personalized selection of antibiotic treatment and aid prevention against its adverse effects.

What is tested?

The bacterial composition of the gut microbiome, based on the quantitative analysis of 16s genes of the bacterial RNA. This method is most advanced and currently considered the “golden standard” for assessing bacterial composition. Based on the microbiome test, nutritional recommendations to cultivate the diversity and gut microbiome balance is given, grounded by the latest scientific research.

Which data is included in the microbiome composition?

  • 1
    Diversity of the microbiome
  • 2
    Enterotype of the microbiome
  • 3
    Disease protection: Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, obesity, coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes
  • 4

    Level of probiotic and other beneficial bacteria

  • 5
    Ability to metabolise dietary fibre
  • 6
    Butyrate production
  • 7
    Ability to synthesize certain vitamins
  • 8
    Gluten metabolism
  • 9
    Lactose metabolism
  • 10
    Anti-inflammatory potential

Metabolism DNA Health

A DNA test provides information on how genetics influence health and metabolism. In addition it allows this knowledge to be used to implement effective lifestyle changes and schedule regular check-ups. When you receive the results of your DNA test, you hold the path to your future health in your hands. The information has been formulated according to thousands of scientific research papers and the most advanced DNA analysis methods. By breaking down the individual characteristics of your genetic code according to decades of scientific discoveries, you have access to knowledge that will help you build a tailored approach to your health.

DNA test results provide valuable personalized data on:

  • 1
    Heredity diseases
  • 2
    Multifactorial diseases
  • 3
    Health-related traits such as insomnia, grass allergy, Malaria resistance, nicotine addiction, c-reactive protein, free PSA-level (men only) and many reproductive health stats.
  • 4
    Nutrition and metabolic traits
  • 5
    Sports genetics and injury risks
  • 6
    Genetic ancestry

The pro-reports also include:

  • 1
    Men’s health
  • 2
    Women’s health
  • 3
  • 4
    Dermatology and cosmetology

Hereditary conditions relate to the various organs systems. It covers genetic variations associated with specific diseases. A detailed description of the pathogenic mechanism, the main features, potential treatments and incident in the European population is provided.

Multifactoral diseases depend on hereditary and external factors mainly ignited by lifestyle. A person might have no genetic predisposition to a specific disease, but the influence of lifestyle or an external factor might be strong enough for the disease to develop. The most evidence has been collected for cardiovascular diseases, such as hypertension and coronary heart disease, metabolic disoders, such as diabetes mellitus and obesity and neurogenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.

Health related traits present comprehensive information on how to reverse and recover from these traits.

Nutrition and metabolic traits present important parameters on the metabolism capacity of omega fatty acids, iron, calcium, caffeine, alcohol and lactose intolerances, gluten intolerances, the metabolism of vitamins A, B12, B5, B6 and E.

Genetic data is not necessarily a final diagnosis, but together with the lifestyle support help, you can design a program towards early prevention based on lifestyle choices that can eliminate or limit adverse effects on your health.
