Your gut naturally sheds itself.
So, we expect that a part of the DNA in your sample is in fact your own DNA.
The rest belongs to your gut microbiome.
Your gut microbiome consists of all microorganisms that live in your digestive tract.
We can detect the following microbes that make up your gut microbiome:
DNA that we cannot assign remains as Unassigned.
- Your level of bacterial DNA of 74.6% is inside the reference range.
- Your level of archaeal DNA of <0.1% is inside the reference range.
- Your level of fungal DNA of 0% is outside the reference range.
We focus on
Bacteria are the natural inhabitants of your gut.
Most of them break down food components that we cannot digest otherwise.
Our bodies need them to prevent the growth of harmful organisms.
They help to train our immune system, so that it works properly.
Archaea are something like cousins of bacteria that can be found in the intestines of some, but not all, humans.
They have a few distinct abilities:
- They can use the hydrogen produced by bacteria.
- Some of them can produce methane.
Their impact on our health is still being studied, but their abilities have been associated with reduced bloating and slow digestion.
Fungi are also considered normal inhabitants of your gut that can be found in some, but not all, humans.
They are involved in digestive and immune functions and contribute to a balanced ecosystem in your gut.
We have detected 1240 unique species of bacteria, 10 species of archaea and 0 species of fungi in your gut microbiome.
- From your consumption of a varied diet,
- from drugs or medication you may take,
- the environment you live in,
- or your body’s own immune response.
- Frequent and fast bowel movements may flush out those that grow slowly.
- Antibiotics or your immune system may remove those that are not resistant.
- A monotonous diet which lacks a variation of nutrients.
- gives you a quick assessment of the state of your gut microbiome, and
- allows for easy comparisons between samples.
- The size of the circle indicates the relative abundance of the species.
- The color indicates how this microbe’s relative abundance compares to the reference group.
- High abundance
- Inside the reference range
- Low abundance
- Outside the reference range
- Harvest energy from our food for us
- Protect against pathogens
- Train our immune system
- Indicate inflammation
- Have the potential to make you sick if your body is weakened
- Could possibly cause disease in healthy people
Fungi are currently not classified as beneficial, non-beneficial or harmful.
They make up only a minority of the gut microbiome and therefore have not been studied as much as bacteria.
We show if fungi are inside or outside of the reference group.
- You should consult with your GP whether you really need potentially missing probiotics.
- Nothing on this page is meant to be perceived as an approved health claim regarding probiotics.
- increase foods that support a healthy gut microbiome,
- reduce foods that have no benefit or even do harm.
