Why Microbiome Analysis is Critical to Improve Your Overall Well-being?

by Kriben Govender Health Advisor
Many nutritionists in Melbourne recommend people to take the state-of-the-art DNA based stool microbiome analysis in order to help them discover different types of fungi, bacteria, yeast and other microorganism present in their gut.

Based on the information gained through the DNA based analysis, reputed Specialist Gut Nutritionist Melbourne can offered comprehensive diet and lifestyle recommendations focused on the latest food science and microbiome research. The general well-being, sports performance, sexual health, and quality of life of the person can be significantly improved by following the recommended diet and lifestyle recommendations based on the information gained from the stool analysis.

Different steps of DNA based gut analysis

Typically, there are four steps involved in the DNA based gut analysis, which are sampling, sequencing, exploration, and results. Each of the steps is briefly discussed in this article.

Step Number One: Sampling

First step of the stool analysis test is collection of sample from the patients in discreet manner. A sample collection kit is provided to the customers once they purchase the gut analysis tests. The kit contains everything that a person needs for hygienically collecting the stool sample. It contains a simple to read and understand instruction book let that helps patients collect the sample efficiently. In addition, the kit also contains a tube containing a pre-added preservative that efficiently maintains the integrity of the microbial DNA from the stool sample. The sample received from the patient are typically analyzed in the state-of-the-art laboratories in Australia to discover the type of microorganism present in the gut of the patient. 

In addition, the sample collection kit also contains a postage paid return satchel. It helped patients to send the stool sample to the testing laboratory in discreet manner. Once the testing of the sample is complete, the patients are provided with a well-being and lifestyle survey along the easy to read and understand results.

Step Number Two: Sequencing

The second step of the stool analysis test is sequencing of the sample in order to discover the types of bacteria and other microorganisms present in it by using advanced DNA sequencing method. So, how the sequencing of the sample is done?

First of all, the microbial DNA from the stool sample is extracted by using advanced technology and methods. Then, scientists discover and quantify the groups of bacteria, fungi, and yeast present in the gut. Some of the most common types of bacterial colonies present in the gut of the patients are:

  • Firmicutes
  • Bacteroidetes
  • Proteobacteria
  •  Verrucomicrobia
  • Actinobacteria
  • Tenericutes
  •  Cyanobacteria
  • Fusobacteria
  • Candida

Step Number Three: Exploration

The next step involved in the analysis of the stool sample is exploration. During this step, the scientists will conduct a deeper analysis for the purpose of identifying different genus and species of peace keeping microbes and opportunistic pathogens in the stool sample.

The Final Step: Results

After the exploration of the sample, the patients will receive an easy to understand report that clearly explains the groups of bacteria, yeasts, and fungi present in their gut. This report includes the relative abundance of key bacterial groups with a bacterial diversity score, which range from 1 to 10. In addition to this, the result will also contain several lifestyle and diet recommendations that will significantly improve their overall wellbeing and sport performance.
