Your gut plays a pivotal role in your physical and mental health. If something isn’t right in your gut, it’s likely to have an effect on other aspects of your body. With that in mind, we are excited to announce the release of the NeoVos Compositional Gut Test. This new test sits alongside our Functional Gut Test.
Unlike our Functional Gut Test, which measures the products of gut bacteria such as Short-Chain Fatty Acids (SCFAs) in your gut, our new test quantifies the total amount of bacteria in the gut, as well as the levels of crucial ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria.
The test measures Lactobacillus (Genus) and Bifidobacterium (Genus), some of the most researched ‘good’ bacteria with numerous health benefits. Also, we measure E.coli (species), Clostridium difficile (species), Fusobacterium nucleatum (species) and Proteus mirabilis (species), which are some of the most common problem bacteria.
By measuring both types of bacteria, we can compare the numbers of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ to understand the overall abundance and balance of bacteria in the gut. As with the functional gut test, we then provide you with an easy-to-read report and personalised recommendations to improve the bacteria in your gut.
