GutIndex® microbiota analyses
The balance of gut microbiota and the relative abundancies of bacterial groups have an effect on our wellbeing, immune defence and gut function. The relative abundancies of different bacterial groups differ in different age groups and this affects the microbial balance of the gut. Key bacterial groups in each test have been chosen based on scientific research.
