The BioArte Gut Microbiota test kit

The human microbiota is defined as a network of different microorganisms inhabiting and interacting with our body, and the human microbiome is referred to as the genomic content of organisms (microbiota) inhabiting a particular site in the human body.

The microbiota colonizes various anatomical body sites such as the skin, the mucosa, gastrointestinal tract, respiratory tract, urogenital tract, and mammary glands. The intestinal microbiome is the largest one. Age, nutrition, lifestyle, hormonal changes, inherited genes, drug administration (such as antibiotics), and several diseases determine microbiome changes. Any alteration in the makeup of the human microbiota, called dysbiosis, can lead to life-threatening illnesses.

A balanced microbiota has been shown to play an essential role in health sustenance, prevention, and the key to many diseases.

The intestinal microbiome considered a true “brain” is an essential player in the onset or recurrence of many diseases, both intestinal or related to other organs in the human body. Several studies on the gut microbiome have illustrated that changes in the balance of the pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory microorganisms may be directly related to a dysbiotic flora.

Life-threatening health conditions ranging from cancer, cardiovascular diseases, autoimmune diseases, type 2 diabetes mellitus, obesity, arthrosis, fibromyalgia, allergies, asthma, behavioral disorders, and difficult-to-treat bacterial infections due to antibiotic resistance have also been linked to dysbiosis and an unbalanced immunity.

The intestinal microbiome is also involved in many intestinal functional disorders (such as dyspepsia, intestinal bloating, intestinal pain, digestive problems, gastroesophageal reflux, gastritis, diarrhea, constipation, etc.), gluten sensitivity, food intolerance, persistent antibiotic-induced colitis, small intestinal bowel syndrome (SIBO), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) as well as in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Crohn’s disease (CD), and ulcerative colitis (UC).

Why take the Gut microbiota test kit?

There are moments in our everyday lifestyle and even with a balanced diet, we are unable to explain why some intestinal diseases appear, why they arise, or are sometimes very difficult to treat with traditional treatments or to diagnose with standard approaches.

Understanding the mechanisms that result in microbiome dysbiosis and correcting the deficiencies that trigger these disorders require in-depth examinations of the intestinal microbiome by using the latest generation and cutting-edge methodologies. This is mandatory for our health in a modern medicine era.

When to take the Gut microbiota test kit?

Many diseases are related to the imbalance of the inflammatory system, called the inflammasome. The regulation of this system is vital for the host to cope with foreign pathogens or tissue damage. At the same time, aberrant inflammasome activation can cause uncontrolled tissue responses that may contribute to various diseases, including autoinflammatory disorders, cardiometabolic diseases, cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases.

This aberrant trigger is often due to the abundance of microbial clusters in our microbiome that can activate many inflammatory molecules.

How is the gut-health check performed by The BioArte?

  1. Collect 2 stool samples in the week of testing by using our kits
  2. Fill out our questionnaire on your medical history and your current health state
  3. We will analyze the samples
  4. Our microbiota expert will create a personalized report of recommendations based on your medical history and our analysis
  5. Private consultation with our microbiota expert. A diet regimen, specifically tailored probiotics may be administrated after the first evaluation.

Optional additional tests performed on samples:

  • faecal calprotectin
  • faecal acidity test

What else can be offered by The BioArte?

The huge impact that the microbiota has on human health is well known and well documented. However, it is also clear that each of us has a unique microbiota. Moreover, the consequences of dysbiosis are unique. It is crucial to monitor the changes, but at the same time, it is essential to try to restore the physiological balance of our microbial community. This is the mission of the theragnostic approach of BioArte.

At the end of each analysis, the company also provides a list of all the probiotics, prebiotics, and fodmap that will help in the mission of “microbial re-shaping” and monitor each treatment’s effect. BioArte is also developing personalized remedies for each customer to help only where there is a real gap.
