Test details

Your gut microbiome is unique, varying depending on geography, gender, culture and demographics, genetics (of your own and that of the race), diet, age and many environmental factors. But, it also follows certain larger patterns and understanding these patterns provide you with an opportunity to maintain and/or modulate your microbiome towards better health benefits.

Given this background, our efforts, through ‘microbiome sequencing analysis’, are directed towards identifying “the diverse species of micro-organisms within your gut, followed by characterization, analysis and interpretation of larger patterns within them. We achieve this through evidence based analysis and interpretation, to assist you in understanding your health and provide you with actionable dietary recommendations to improve your wellbeing.

Our process

Signup and fill

Register yourself to book a test. Take a small quiz so that we can have a brief understanding of your lifestyle.

Sample Collection

A small kit for collecting the sample will be delivered to your home. Once you collect your stool sample and inform us, we will collect the sample and take it for the test.

Testing

This is the step where we perform the tests and characterize all the micro-organisms within your gut. We analyse the patterns based on sequencing data and prediction algorithms.

Report & Recommendations

Based on our findings, we work with experts to generate a personalized report and recommend ways through which you can enhance your health and lifestyle.

What is in the kit

The kit contains a stool collection tube, an instruction leaflet, and a questionnaire. The stool collection tube contains a spoon and a Stool DNA stabilizer reagent for collection and preservation of the sample. The instruction leaflet enclosed within the kit describe in detail the steps for stool collection, which ensures that right amount of sample reaches us without any degradation. Also, a questionnaire is provided with the kit which is needed to be filled by the person taking the test, as it helps us to understand your regular diet and help you accordingly. The questionnaire provided in the printed form is also available as an online clickable format, for which the link will be provided in advance to the person taking the test.

What do I do after the test result?

We would recommend you to take this report to a nutritionist or a physician for getting proper guidance and help in taking next steps to improve your health. We have tied up with doctors, nutritionists and boutique companies that provide solution like customized food preparation, access to health supplements including but not limited to prebiotics, natural probiotics etc. These services are currently available in select cities and collaborators who have established background in working on the microbiome space, to help our clients in the best possible way. Please feel free to connect with them should you desire the same, using "Our Experts".


Frequently asked questions

Human body hosts a huge number of microbes of many different kinds. These microbes play a role in many fundamental life processes. The collection of microbes that constitute the microbiome is not random; the human microbiome is made up of a set of microbes that complement each other and the human host.
The gut is the best studied site in the human microbiome and it contains the largest, densest, and most diverse microbial community in the human body. The gut microbiome acts as a highly efficient bioreactor, helping to extract energy and nutrients from the food we eat. Compounds that humans cannot digest on their own can be broken down by microbes. Evolutionarily, these microbial capabilities allowed humans to benefit from a wider variety of foodstuffs. The gut microbiome has complex effects on human metabolism and changes in its composition have been linked to several diseases including inflammatory bowel disease, Clostridium difficile infections, autoimmune disorders, and even diabetes and obesity. There are intriguing indications that the gut microbiome may affect sleep patterns, mood, and other behaviors.
Right now, what we can state is that we just don’t yet know what characterizes a healthy microbiome, or how our behavior affects it. But still we can avoid taking broad spectrum antibiotics very often, washing hands with antibiotics; instead switch over to a healthy diet and consume more prebiotics and probiotics regularly.
