What is the importance of microbiota?
Even 80 percent the state of the immune system depends precisely on the microbiota. When the microbiota is balanced, we are healthy, in a good mood and have a lot of energy, and when it is disturbed, we can be at risk of certain diseases, including weight gain, diabetes or even cancer. Science has already proven that the microbiota of healthy and sick people is very different. These changes in the intestinal microbiota are associated with diseases such as metabolic syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel diseases, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, and obesity.
What are the most common symptoms of a gut microbiota disorder?
Dysbiosis can be suspected when there are changes in defecation - diarrhea or constipation, bloating. There may also be skin rashes, acne, recurrent vaginal candidiasis in women, more frequent infections and non-specific symptoms - general fatigue, lack of energy. A balanced or unbalanced microbiota is reflected in our overall well-being.
Changes in the microbiota or microbiome can now be quickly evaluated by tests that are already being performed in our Rhesus clinic. It is also advisable for healthy people to get tested - for example, those who want to change their diet or lifestyle, because animal or plant-based nutrition shapes other. species microbiota.
Genorama GutWell Microbiome Test MyBiome Microbiota Test
The Genorama GutWell microbiome test provides information on the composition of gut bacteria and recommendations on how to improve or maintain a balanced gut microbiome. With the help of intestinal microbiome research, it is possible to form a conscious diet and prevent diseases and other health disorders. It is a metagenomic sequencing-based study that allows a detailed, objective and practical study of the gut microbiome, providing detailed information about the microorganisms living in the gut and their functionality, health effects and ways to balance the microbiome through personalized nutritional recommendations.
How to improve microbiota diversity?
The most beneficial nutritional model of the Mediterranean diet, because eating according to these principles provides not only a lot of plant fiber-rich foods, but also omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which help restore the firmicutes / bacteroidetes ratio.
A high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet promotes dysbiosis by increasing pro-inflammatory bacteria and decreasing short-chain fatty acid-producing bacteria. Stress management, exercise, good sleep, food variety, probiotics help balance our gut microbiota.
