Are you ready to discover what’s really going on in your gut?
Your gut microbiome is as unique as you are, and now you can really get to know it! Our newly-launched, one-of-a-kind Microbiome Test will help you learn more about your gut bacteria and how they’re performing, empowering you to make informed decisions about your health and wellness.
We’re proud to be the world’s first company to create an at-home gut microbiome testing kit that predicts the best nutritional changes you can make to optimise Short Chain Fatty Acid (SCFA) production in your gut. But why is that so important?
The activity and diversity of our gut bacteria (the microbiome) has a wide ranging impact on our overall health, from digestion and metabolic health, through to immunity and brain function. This is because our gut microbiome breaks down (ferments) dietary fibers to produce powerful substances called short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs). SCFAs have been shown to help reduce the risk of several chronic diseases, including heart disease, colon cancer, and type 2 diabetes. SCFAs are also responsible for strengthening the gut lining, hormone regulation, reducing inflammation, regulating appetite, and even boosting mood and cognition.
Did you know there’s no one-size-fits-all route to maximise SCFA production? Different types of gut bacteria are better at fermenting different types of fibres!
That's why we've developed this test kit, using patented technology and the very latest research into the workings of the gut microbiome: so you can finally get an accurate picture of the unique composition and health of your gut bacteria. This picture will reveal the types of fibre preferred by your microbiome, so you can adjust your diet to include the optimal blend of fibre types and boost SCFA production.
So, how does it work?
Once you've ordered our kit online and it's delivered to your door, you'll use a swab to collect a small stool sample from a piece of toilet paper and send it back to our lab. Our lab will sequence the trillions of gut bacteria in your sample and generate a personalised report that includes information on the unique composition, diversity, and how efficient your microbiome is at producing short-chain-fatty-acids.
And that’s not all! Following the receipt of your report, you can schedule a free consultation with our in-house dietitian (worth over £100), during which you’ll get personalised nutrition advice.
“Unless you have an understanding of which types of fibre your own microbiome is specialised to ferment, it’s impossible to know how to adapt your diet for optimised health. This kit, coupled with support from an expert dietitian - takes the guesswork away.” - Dr Thomas Gurry, myota co-founder and CEO.
How much does our kit cost?
We’ve created three different bundles so you can choose the one that’s right for you.
The Gut Transformation (£399) is our flagship programme. For the first time ever, you have access to ‘before and after’ microbiome testing coupled with on-demand dietitian support and personalised nutrition intervention. We’ll even include a 3 month supply of myota for free!
If you’re in need of a Gut Reset (£299), this bundle includes our at home test kit, a 30 minute dietitian consultation, as well as 3 months of myota to give your microbiome the helping hand it needs.
Our third bundle, the Gut Check (£219), provides a comprehensive microbiome analysis and report so you can understand your unique gut bacterial profile. Your results will include useful insights such as your microbiome composition and diversity, as well as your gut efficiency scores.
