The gut microbiota is an ecosystem of microbes that live in your colon and are unique to every individual – just like a fingerprint – and when the microbiota is balanced and happy, it protects your health!
Many factors affect the gut microbiota including nutrition, gender, genetics, stress, lifestyle, medication, etc. When your gut is imbalanced, your body struggles to absorb nutrients, store fat, and regulate blood sugar, which can lead to bloating, fatigue, migraines, gas, constipation, skin irritations, brain fog, unexplained weight gain, poor immune system and other uncomfortable consequences.
Brown’s Comprehensive range of gut tests will help you to understand and have better management of your symptoms.
Why should you perform the Microbiome test?
1) The Gut Is the Body’s Second Brain
Your gut might not be able to solve mathematical equations or compose music, but the extensive network that makes up the gut microbiota uses the same chemicals and cells as the brain to help us digest and alert the brain when something’s off.
2) Solve Digestive Problems
An unhealthy, imbalanced gut leads to discomfort, gas, bloating, diarrhea, and constipation, or can even indicate digestive conditions like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). By testing a sample of your stool, Brown’s gut test helps you find the right tools to make you feel happy and healthy.
3) Understanding What Probiotics & Prebiotics Your Body Needs
Since Brown’s test provides you with better knowledge of the state of your gut, it helps you find your way to wellness by analyzing probiotic and beneficial bacteria in your gut. Probiotics are important because they support digestive health, immune system functions, and protect against inflammation. With Brown’s gut test, a recommendation of certain strains of probiotics can be given to you in order to boost gut health!
4) Find A Diet That Works for You
After taking the test, you’ll know how good your gut bacteria are at protecting you from diseases, as well as digesting dietary fibers found in food. Your results help Brown’s to develop a personalized list of foods that can nourish your gut, which helps to maintain a stable and healthy microbiome environment!
