Why Get Tested?

Your gut is inhabited by a wide range of microorganisms including bacteria, viruses, and fungi, with bacteria usually the most abundant entity. Some bacterial species are known to play an important role in the body and can improve a variety of health issues while other species are associated with an increased risk of disease.

In a healthy individual, the beneficial and harmful bacteria coexist without causing any complications. However, when an imbalance of microbes occurs due to an overgrowth of the harmful bacteria, disease may occur.

Factors that can negatively impact your microbiome.

  • Prolonged use of antibiotics
  • Diet
  • Infectious illness
  • Stress

Environmental, genetic and lifestyle factors can all influence the diversity of your gut microbiome. Studies have indicated that a rich and diverse microbiome is usually classed as ‘healthy’. An imbalance or absence of a particular species could contribute to health problems including; obesity, autoimmune disease, digestive issues and inflammation.

The Randox Health gut microbiome kit will test for over 30 biomarkers that play major roles in the health of the human gut microbiome. While also providing recommendations to changes in diet that can be made in order to obtain a healthy gut microbiome.

A well-balanced, healthy gut microbiome can have a large abundance of health benefits including:

  • Providing protective properties against colorectal cancer and Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
  • Reducing the risk of Obesity.
  • Boosting the immune system.
  • Preventing the colonisation of harmful antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
  • Synthesising Vitimans
  • Reducing the risk of Kidney stones.

However, autoimmune problems, constipation, diarrhoea, weight gain, gas and indigestion all can be signs of an unhealthy gut created by an overgrowth of 'bad microbes'.
