This Test Could Avert America’s Gut Health Crisis. Your body is home to an entire ecosystem of microscopic organisms, known as a microbiota. Researchers have made major strides in further understanding the role that the human microbiome plays in our physical health.

Just like the ecosystems that exist outside of our body, the microbiome inside your gut exists in a delicate state of balance. When the balance of our microbiome is shifted, this can have considerable effects on things such as our digestive health and immune system. These effects aren’t just physical either; scientific research has also noted that changes in our microbiome can even have an effect on things such as our mood and behaviour as well. Additionally, gut health also appears to have a direct correlation to our susceptibility to certain diseases as well, such as obesity, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome and even certain types of cancers such as colon cancer. With all of this in mind, it’s pretty apparent that ensuring a healthy and happy gut is an important way to manage and control your overall health.
A company has recently devised an advanced microbiome test which may help you better understand and tailor to your individual gut related needs. This is because “healthy gut” is something that varies from person to person based on individual biological needs.
According to the creatives at Futurism, the Viome “gut intelligence test” functions similarly to a DNA test; the key difference is that instead of mapping out your body’s genes, it maps out the microscopic organisms that are currently taking up residence inside your gut. The Viome test can be also be taken from home using a kit sent by mail, kind of like those home ancestry tests that are all the rage these days. After using the kit and mailing a sample back, Viome will analyze your sample in order to gain a better understanding of your gut biome and the nutrients and toxins that it seems to be producing.
