Who’s living in you’re child’s gut and what are they doing there?
Science is continuously discovering that the many microorganisms living in our gut can have a major influence on our health and wellbeing. Find out what your child’s microbiome can tell you about their health with an easy-to-use gut microbiome test, MetaBiome.
WHAT DOES IT MEASURE?
The MetaBiome test gives us valuable insights into your gut health. It’s the most comprehensive gut microbiome test that provides an in-depth picture of the spectrum of microbes in your gut and their functional potential and activity.
WHAT DOES THE REPORT SHOW?
MetaBiome reports on your gut microbiome diversity, the microbial species present as well as their functional output, which are linked to various states of health and disease. The report provides you with a MetaBiome score which indicates your overall microbiome health.
HOW CAN IT HELP?
By measuring the diversity and potential to produce specific gut metabolites we can gain an understanding of your unique microbiome and how it may be affecting your health. Diet and lifestyle, as well as nutritional and herbal ingredients, can modulate microbiome composition and function. Therefore, MetaBiome analysis helps us to personalise your treatment plan and monitor the health of your microbiome.
HOW IS THE METABIOME TEST PERFORMED?
It is very simple to perform in the privacy of your own home, with a very small amount of stool sample being collected off the toilet paper and sent off in the post to the lab.
WHO IS THE METABIOME TEST USEFUL FOR?
Our Microbiome influences our health in many ways so this test is useful for everyone from 2 years up (the test is not relevant for children under 2 due as their gut microbiome is rapidly changing during that time).
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE TEST FOR CHILDREN WITH:
- Digestive issues such as constipation, tummy aches, loose bowels etc.
- Atopic conditions such as allergies, eczema, asthma.
- Behavioural and neurological conditions such as A.D.H.D and Autism
- Mental health concerns such as anxiety or depression.
- A history of antibiotic use.
