Microbiota analysis

Today’s society lives under great stress and is accustomed to poor consumption habits that have triggered a widespread interest in microbiota analysis. There are over 100 trillion bacteria living in the human intestine, all of which affect our physical and mental health. Correcting microbial imbalance (intestinal dysbiosis) and restoring proper intestinal microbiota functioning will help us avoid allergies, illnesses, and diseases. With a detailed microbiota study, we can determine the real state of intestinal health and use the data obtained to restore its balance.

What is intestinal microbiota analysis?

Bacteria, viruses, and fungi coexist in our intestines, forming the intestinal microbiota. It is a set of microorganisms that influence and actively participate in the development and maintenance of our digestive system. Numerous studies and clinical research have shown that an intestinal microbiota analysis can provide highly relevant health information. Stool and intestinal microbiota analyses are capable of revealing conditions and problems that develop silently without showing any symptoms. Some common risk diseases today, such as heart disease, obesity, or cancer, can be detected early with a microbiota analysis

The bacteria in our intestine also shed light on the imbalances caused by celiac disease, lactose intolerance, and allergies. In addition, their observation helps determine which diet is most suitable for maximizing their benefits in the body. Microbiota analysis creates a microbial profile from which a personalized diet or treatment can be derived to strengthen our immune system.

Microbiota analysis detects infections, risk diseases, and all types of nutritional imbalances that affect health.

The importance of maintaining a balanced intestinal microbiota

Our way of life and consumption directly affects our intestinal microbiota. Stress, sedentary lifestyle, alcoholism, and tobacco dependence are some triggers that affect the quality and functionality of the microbiota. This microbial imbalance can favor the onset of a variety of chronic disorders and diseases that require immediate attention to stop their development. Intestinal microbiota studies help prevent and detect risks, facilitate a more specific diagnosis, and help determine the most appropriate treatment for each case.

Imbalances between beneficial and pathogenic bacteria can trigger the development of mental, metabolic, inflammatory, and autoimmune diseases, as well as heart disease, skin disorders, and cancer. As prevention, a microbiota analysis will determine the state of our intestinal health and what treatment, diet, or habits are most beneficial to our well-being. Intestinal bacteria receive nutrients and produce beneficial compounds for our body. They are responsible for regulating our immune system and connecting the gut and brain through neurotransmitter molecules.

LIntestinal microbiota is so involved in all vital processes that its proper functioning is essential for our well-beingar

Intestinal Microbiota Analysis from Microviable

Thanks to our Intestinal Microbiota Test, at Microviable, we can determine the types and amounts of microorganisms inhabiting the intestine. We only need a stool sample to carry out the analysis. We isolate the DNA of the different microorganisms and sequence the 16S rRNA gene to determine which bacterial families and genera proliferate in the intestinal system. With the data obtained, we manage a comparative bioinformatics analysis to check if our microbiome is similar to the microbiota of other healthy individuals.

Intestinal microbiota analysis helps us determine the types and amounts of microorganisms inhabiting our intestine, as well as their possible functions

With microbiota analysis of a patient, we can identify changes in their microbial diversity and anticipate a wide range of illnesses. Along with the results, a final report is delivered to help interpret all the data. Based on these results, an effective treatment can be tailored, and a diet can be personalized to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the individual’s gut.

Microviable Therapeutics has extensive experience in the field of biotechnology, enabling us to design custom projects for companies and entities in the pharmaceutical, biotech, and food sectors, with a special focus on studying microbiota.
