Biome FX Microbiome Testing
Recent evidence suggests that the gut microbiome is likely the master control center of overall human health. Stool testing has become a popular method for evaluating the status of an individual’s microbiome. The problem is that many of these tests are often lacking in accuracy, reliability, and functionality. Microbiome Labs has collaborated with CosmosID to create BiomeFx, the most cutting-edge stool test on the market. BiomeFx not only uses the most advanced and accurate sequencing technology, but it also explores some of the many inner functions of the gut microbiome.
This test includes:
Alpha vs Beta diversity - your own diversity of bacteria species, compared to that of a healthy population. The more diverse the better. Lower diversity means a less healthy microbiome. For example, low alpha-diversity suggests that your gut microbiome was recently damaged by antibiotics, environmental toxins, stress, diet, or other factors.
Keystone species - A detailed breakdown of which very specific bacteria strains are present in your gut. Knowing which keystone species you need to support can really tailor a probiotic recommendation protocol.
Screening for Pathogenic Strains - This test will analyze over 25 pathogens and measure the percentage they comprise of your gut biome. This gives a very clear picture of the nature of any dysbiosis. For example, Clostridium difficile and Bacteroides fragilis
Functional benefits - Learn how your microbiome affects your hormone balance, neurotransmitters, autoimmunity, detoxification, digestion, and disease risk.
An in-depth analysis report and a complimentary consult with a Remedy Clinician to go over your results and help you identify actionable next steps to improve the health of your Microbiome
