Gut Health Test

Why should you have a gut health test?


The gut microbiota is one of the key elements contributing to the regulation of your general health.


Alterations of gut microbiota are linked to many diseases including obesity, type 2 diabetes, hepatic steatosis, intestinal bowel diseases (IBDs) and several types of cancer.


This suggests that various pathways involved in immunity, energy, lipid and glucose metabolism are affected.


Modern diets, lifestyles and medications may cause imbalances in the microbiome. These imbalances are linked to chronic inflammation and metabolic dysfunction, which are two key influences of many health problems.


We perform genetic sequencing through an mRNA-based test, from a small stool sample, that will sequence and identify the genetic break down of bacteria in the gut.


Once we have your results we can personalise dietary guidelines to optimise your diet, rebalance your microbiome, and improve your health.


How does it work?


Buy your test and we will contact you to book the appointment for sample collection.


How much does it cost?




This fee includes a 1-hour session with our Nutritional Consultant, Dr Gregorio Torchia to discuss the results and to offer you general dietary recommendations.
