The Microbiology Profile evaluates stool samples for beneficial bacteria, imbalanced gut flora, yeast, and possible pathogens.
Beneficial bacteria are organisms typically found in the healthy human gut that have effects both locally and throughout the human body. An impaired or imbalanced gut microbiome has been associated with IBS, IBD, autoimmunity and other chronic diseases.
The Microbiology Analysis stool test provides a valuable insight into the microbiome and actionable clinical information for the development of personalised treatments to help restore intestinal microbial balance.
