Microbiome DNA Analysis
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.

Receive 5 Key insights
1. Bacterial Environment
The 'Good' and "Bad" 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. Intestinal Toxins
The cause of bloating and skin flare up
Intestinal toxins such as Hydrogen Sulphide is related to painful bloating and skin flare ups. Intestinal toxins can also cause weight gain as well. They are also deeply linked to IBS, Leaky gut and Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
Histamine is one of well known intestinal toxins to cause food allergies and skin flare ups.
Recent studies reveal production of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is deeply linked to endometriosis as well.

[Microbiome Test] 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.
[Microbiome Test] 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. Antibiotic use however, is one exception to the rule, as it does affect the microbiome. It is advised that testing should be conducted at least 2 weeks after antibiotic use, once any acute symptoms have resolved.
[Microbiome Test] How long does it take to receive my results?You will receive your results between 2-4 weeks.
