At Hummingbird Health Space, we utilise the latest genomic technology to assess the condition of your gastrointestinal functions such as digestion, absorption, intestinal function and microbial diversity.
It is a non-invasive test and can easily be done at home.

What we can assess
5 Key Reports
1. Beneficial bacteria & unwanted bacteria
Having a large number of diverse, beneficial bacteria is one of biggest factors in maintaining optimal gut health. A high level of bacterial diversity has been shown to reduce the risk of digestive symptoms, whilst a lower level of diversity has been linked with symptoms such as constipation, bloating and diarrhoea, due to a lack of functional and protective gut bacteria. Your report will showcase each organisms in percentage in comparison with our ideal percentage.
2. Unwanted production of other gas and chemicals
Unbalanced compounds such as Hydrogen Sulphide is related to Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Obesity. Histamine is well known chemical to cause food allergies, IBS, asthma and other negative impact on our health.
3. Understand the influence on your health
Breaking down the fibre from your meals, creating compounds known as short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) that help keep your gut healthy. We will assess by each type of SCFAs and assess if your body is capable to produce sufficient amount. Unfortunately "flooding" probiotics won't improve your gut health unless your gut environment is ready to "feed" good bactria.
4. Seven functional insights
We can understand the functional capacity of your microbe to comtribute to the health of different systems in your body.
5. Tailored dietary advice
Different microorganisms require different foods to stay alive. You will learn which foods are recommended for your current gut environment and why.

What does 'Diversity" mean?
Diversity is the measure of both the number of different types and the amount of bacterial species in the sample, i.e. it encompasses both richness and evenness. A highly diverse sample would contain a large number of different bacterial species (high richness), with a relatively equal amount of each species (high evenness). While low microbial diversity is often associated with poor health, high microbial diversity is associated with good health. A varied diet rich in plant-based, fibrecontaining foods, such as fruits, vegetables, wholegrains and nuts, is associated with increased microbial diversity.
Do I need to stop my medication and supplements?
No, there is no need to stop taking probiotics or other supplements before the test, as these are part of your regular habits and will reflect their “normal” microbiome.
