Personalised Gut Microbiome Profiling


What is a Personalised Gut Microbiome Profile?

We believe that improving your gut microbiota will lead to improved health. Your microbiome is linked to a range of conditions affecting the gut including obesity, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), colon cancer, constipation; other body systems including cardiovascular health, diabetes, allergies, auto-immune diseases and even mental health and diseases of aging such as Parkinson’s disease.

At the Healthy Bacteria Company we are actively involved in researching the impact of the microbiome on health.

How Does It Work?


We will send you an easy-to-use stool test kit.


Login to your account and complete the 'Lifestyle Impact Survey'. This will take 10 minutes of your time and allows us to understand links between your gut bugs and your lifestyle, such as the food you eat and how much you exercise.


Simply follow the instructions provided and then pop your sample into the post. Sit back and put the kettle on as we do the rest!


Your sample is processed in an accredited UK lab. We use cutting edge DNA sequencing technology to identify the bacteria in your poo sample.


We interpret your microbiome profile and combine this with your lifestyle information we build your personal gut microbiome report.
