About the product
Your gut microbiome is as unique as your fingerprint – but it says much more about your health. Scientists are currently investigating numerous connections between your microbiome and health. For example, there is mounting evidence that bacteria in the gut microbiome influence how quickly you gain and lose weight. The diversity of your gut flora is quite possibly related to gut health and the risk of illnesses. The right intestinal bacteria protect the body from diseases and digestive problems.
With the cerascreen® Gut Microbiome Test, a diagnostic sample-taking and send-in test that you can use at home, the composition of the bacteria in your intestine can be determined. In a laboratory, the DNA of the intestinal bacteria is analysed using state-of-the-art biotechnology. With the results report, you will gain comprehensive insights into your microbiome, also called gut flora: from the variety of bacterial species to the balance between good and bad bacteria as well as the breakdown of all strains and types of intestinal bacteria.

Benefits of the Gut Microbiome Test
The gut microbiome, or gut flora, is a mirror of your health condition. Intestinal bacteria are important for your digestive and immune systems and are influenced by your lifestyle. An unhealthy or imbalanced diet, harmful substances, smoking, antibiotics and stress can throw the microbiome out of balance. Scientific studies indicate that this has an effect on digestion and can even increase your body weight.
Conventional intestinal flora tests analyse the stool sample by placing it in a Petri dish and looking at it through a microscope. However, this method only shows a section of the gut microbiome. rRNA sequencing is a more accurate, modern and diagnostic method that is used for the cerascreen® Gut Microbiome Test. It involves analysing the DNA of all bacteria in the stool sample.
DNA analysis of gut microbiome is usually not carried out by a medical practitioner. With the cerascreen® Gut Microbiome Test, you do not have to go to a clinic and do not have to wait for appointments. You will receive detailed, illustrated instructions and can take the sample quickly, conveniently and discreetly from home. You will then receive your individual gut microbiome profile.Reviews
