Your Microbiome

A Vital Part of Our Gut Health

The human gut is home to trillions of microorganisms, which are collectively known as the microbiome. These microbes play a vital part in our gut health, supporting digestion and the synthesis of vitamins.

Symptoms and diagnoses

SmartGut™ is a screening test that can help you monitor your overall gut health regularly.

It detects the microorganisms associated with several common gut symptoms, including:

  • Abdominal pain/tenderness

  • Constipation

  • Crohn's disease/Ulcerative Colitis

  • Bloating

  • Diarrhea

  • Gas

  • General Screening

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

The Microbiome and Blood Sugar Management
  • High interpersonal variability in post-meal sugar observed in an 800-person cohort

  • Using personal and microbiome features enables accurate sugar response prediction

  • Prediction is accurate and superior to common practice in an independent cohort

  • Short-term personalized dietary interventions successfully lower post-meal sugar
