Let your intestines guide you to the best version of you and your family
Understand the health of your intestine at a different level
Intestinal health plays such an important role in our well-being that it affects the state of our immune system, the skin, the nervous system, the brain and almost all other body systems. The more we learn about the microbiome, and the ways in which our modern lifestyles interrupt the delicate balance of good and bad bacteria in the digestive tract, the easier it is to convince ourselves that our insides must be in complete disarray.
If you can relate to this paranoia, you are not alone. And their concerns may be valid, since standard diet, chronic stress, lack of sleep, travel and exposure to chemicals can have devastating effects on our intestinal health. But in reality, the only way to know for sure is to try.
So, take the BIOME test for sequencing your microbiome and start enjoying a functional and personalized lifestyle.
What a MICROBIOME test is all about?
The microbiome is a moving target
The results are a snapshot of how your intestinal health looks at the time of sequencing. Your microbiome changes every day depending on what you eat, drink and do, so it is advisable to get tested every 3 months. But this ever-changing nature also means that every time you choose an apple instead of a Snickers bar, your intestinal bacteria thank you, almost immediately.
Our test is clinical
With DiploideGenetics, you and your doctor can get valuable information to better understand what goes on inside your intestines. By analyzing the genes that express their microbes, we can identify which metabolites produce, in other words, we can determine their role in the ecosystem of your body. By following the diet and lifestyle recommendations of BIOME, you can adjust the function of your gut microbiome to minimize the production of harmful metabolites and maximize the production of beneficial ones.
We sequence the genetic expression of your microbiome
While the identification of microorganisms in your intestine is important, we gain greater understanding when we can also understand their function. This is because the microbes in your intestine produce thousands of chemicals, called metabolites, that affect your overall well-being. Some of these microbial metabolites may be beneficial to our health, such as vitamin B and short-chain fatty acids, while others may be harmful, such as TMAO, which causes coronary artery disease.
