Microba Insights: Microbiome Testing
Get a clear picture of your gut microbiome
Your microbiome is the community of organisms living in and on your body. Every person’s microbial community is unique and includes an individualised balance of both desirable and less-beneficial microorganisms. This balance can play a significant role in your overall wellbeing.
Gut bacteria specialists are constantly discovering important new connections between microbiome and general health. Among other things, your gut microbiome can affect your immune system, cardiovascular system and your mental health.
When you understand the unique balance of your gut microbiome, you can take informed steps to maintain or improve the makeup of your microbial community.
