What is gut microbiome?
The gut microbiome, which hosts more than 1000 bacterial species that encode about 5 million genes, performs many of the important functions like aid in the digestion of foods, immune system development, vitamin synthesis, ion absorption, salvage of energy, which our body cannot perform by itself. As its name states, gut microbiome is harbored in the intestine, one of the main areas in our bodies that comes into contact with the external environment (other examples are the skín and the lungs). Alterations in the composition of the gut microbiome could lead to a bacterial imbalance which has been related to an increasing number of intestinal and extra-intestinal diseases. Some of the factors that lead to such imbalances include:
  • Diet
    • High in refined carbohydrates
    • Proinflammatory food choices
    • Excessive protein intake
    • Lack of fiber
  • Stress
  • Antibiotic Use
  • Foreign Travel
  • Sedentary Lifestyle
  • Household environment
Gut microbiome imbalance effects

Imbalances in your gut microbiome may lead to the following symptoms/effects:

  • Gastrointestinal symptoms / IBS
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Nutritional (or vitamin) deficiencies
  • Skin conditions
  • Autism Spectrum / ADH
  • Food intolerances
  • Inflammation or joint pain
  • Low energy levels / fatigue

Gut microbiome imbalance testing

Of all the bacterial species, only about a 100 types have potential health outcomes based on existing scientific studies and peer reviewed journals. It is important to know the abundance of these bacteria to make healthy lifestyle decisions. Some of these include:

What is gut zoomer?

Gut Zoomer is a health analytics tool that allows you to take a look at these populations of bacteria, yeast and parasites that reside in the gut. 16S Ribosomal Gene helps classify and distinguish bacteria at the phylum, genus, species and subspecies levels to determine how their relative abundance can affect your gut imbalance and overall health. The Gut Zoomer allows the use of microbiome information to reduce monitor and manage the effects of gut microbial imbalance.

Why use gut zoomer?

The Gut Zoomer performs the most comprehensive analysis available of your microbial profile from a simple and easy to use feces collection kit and provides you with an actionable report that includes potential risks for:
  • Intestinal Permeability (SCFA producing Bacteria and Tight Junction lntegrity)
  • Intestinal Disorders (IBD related bacteria)
  • Heart Health (Lipid Influencing and TMAO bacteria)
  • Autoimmune Disorders (Celiac, Crohn’s etc)
  • Metabolic Disorders (Obesity, Diabetes)
  • Nutrition (Vitamin Production, Oxalate Metabolism)
  • Intestinal Parasites – Cryptosporidium, Entamoeba and Giardia
  • Fungal yeast – Candida Albicans
Gut Zoomer also provides you with roadmaps including dietary recommendations and other natural supplements that include:

Probiotics
Helps support a healthy gut microbiome, as well as maintain the integrity of the gut lining boost immune functíon, promote healthy inflammatory responses, improve digestive function. help to heal inflammatory bowel conditions. manage and prevent skin conditions, fight food-borne illnesses, and improve psychological function. Probiotics are friendly bacteria that can be found in a variety of foods.

Prebiotics
Carbohydrate-based sources of fiber that are food for beneficial bacteria in your gut. These fibers help them grow and thrive. Prebiotic fibers are helpful in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease and intestinal permeability. They also help to regulate bowel function.

Polyphenols (Pol-ee-fee-nawls)
Chemical compounds that come from plants. They are used by your gut bacteria to make beneficial substances for you, and they help to keep your gut bacteria balanced by some of their antimicrobial effects. Eating more polyphenol-rich foods has been shown to create an optimal gut bacterial balance, which, in turn, can reduce your risk for many diseases. If you have a decreased abundance of some beneficial gut bacteria, increasing your intake of polyphenol-rich foods is one thing you can do to improve your gut bacteria balnce.
