BugSpeaks® Lite is a lighter version of BugSpeaks®, which only analyses bacteria and bases all reports only in this. But, does not provide information on other micro organisms like fungi, viruses etc., and their effect on your health.
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 bacterial species” 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.
BugSpeaks® Lite analyses your gut bacteria composition, characterizes its diversity and abundance, associates them with various disease susceptibilities, with the ultimate goal of generating a comprehensive set of dietary, prebiotic and probiotics recommendations.
It is South Asia’s first microbiome based test which predicts susceptibility to over 15 diseases analysing the bacterial composition of the gut and provides actionable dietary and probiotic recommendations based on your gut microbiome. This may enrich, improve and sustain your health for a long term. The test is non-invasive, simple, easy to perform at home which takes small amount of faecal matter and uses next generation sequencing to detect and analyse all microorganisms based on their DNA. This test is brought to you by Leucine Rich Bio, an award winning company headquartered in Bengaluru, India. In house developed and patent pending matrix driven interpretation engine along with in house curated databases drive BugSpeaks®.
Register yourself to book a test. Take a small quiz so that we can have a brief understanding of your lifestyle.
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.
This is the step where we perform the tests and characterize the bacterial presence in your gut. We analyse the patterns running the sequencing and prediction algorithms.
Based on our findings, we work with experts to generate a personalized report and recommend the ways to enchance your lifestyle.
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.
