Different diets for different people
The composition of your gut bacteria depends on what you eat every day, meaning that everybody has a unique microbiome profile. It can also be influenced by other factors like your living environment, antibiotics and stress.
Even if you eat lots of fresh food and stay away from take-aways, your microbiome might still lack the ability to synthesise specific vitamins or break down dietary fibre.
Furthermore, because gut bacteria are influenced by external factors, some species may die off. In this case, it is important to have diversity, so that other bacteria can fulfill these functions and prevent pathogenic species for moving in.
New food can change the microbiome
There is extensive research on what foods different bacteria prefer.
Our test will show you what you need to eat to improve the composition of your microbiome.
