Tell me more about the microbiome test

How is a microbiome test performed?

From a stool sample taken from your child's diaper, we are able to collect the DNA of all gut microbes. From their DNA we can tell exactly which bacteria are present and what they are doing in your gut.

We analyze bacterial DNA only and we do not analyze your own DNA!

What can you tell from a microbiome test?

In children, it depends on the age. The child's microbiome is constantly evolving from birth to adulthood, so monitoring its trajectory and development over time is even more informative than looking at only one snapshot.

From one microbiome test, you will discover:
- Gut microbiome diversity, which is an important indicator in microbiome analysis
- Share of friendly bacteria, promoting healthy development
- Share of bacteria protective to and training the immune system
- Share of bacteria supporting metabolic health
- Share of bacteria supporting brain health

Most importantly, you will receive an action plan with practical suggestions on how to improve your 's gut microbiome covering diet, environmental exposure and supplements (only if needed) reviewed by our experts in Science & Nutrition and discussed with you in a 1:1 consultation (30 minutes) with our Nutrition & Health Coach, Michelle.

Our certified Nutrition & Health Coach and Parent Coach, Michelle Henning, also authored the book "Grow Healthy Babies: The Evidence-Based Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy and Reducing Your Child’s Risk of Asthma, Eczema, and Allergies" (2021). Michelle's book reviewed over 660 studies on the subject and is has been praised by key opinion leaders: “One of the best books I have ever read. As scientist, obstetrician, and a trainer - it's essential reading for anyone working in pregnancy health to be able to give the right advice to women to nurture their baby and optimise their future. ” - Dr. Karen Joash, Obstetrician, Gynecologist and Director of Medical Education at Imperial College London & NHS.
