Discover the world of microbes
There are trillions of bacteria living on and inside our bodies. In fact, the volume of DNA contained in your microbiome far exceeds the human DNA of your body. Scientists even consider the gut microbiome to be a separate organ.

The science behind it
The OMBucha® Microbiome Test was developed by AtlasBiomed & an international team of scientists, reviewed by our Scientific Board of Advisors and registered with the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare product Regulatory Agency) in the United Kingdom.
Jamie RockersEssentially having a wide range of gut flora is very beneficial to your health and helps you digest food easier and also a happy gut is a happy life. Apparently, a lot of our immune system is in our gut! The test gives you recommendations on everything from how much fibre you need to personalised food recommendations which I found really useful.
Scarlett DixonMicrobiome test is a really good indicator of your overall health. That’s something that I’ve found has helped immensely in controlling my IBS symptoms things like bloating, diarrhoea and constipation
Jo WhiteI’ve always been interested in gut health and the Atlas Biomed microbiome kit has really helped me to understand how my eating habits affect my health.
JennaIt advised me to increase the proportion of the beneficial bacteria by including foods from a recommended list in my diet to help balance my gut’s ecosystem and overall health. I was so pleased to see that Atlas wasn’t trying to flog me expensive health supplements, but were instead recommending increased consumption of about 70 different foods.
Frequently Asked Questions
This research has established that bacteria in the microbiome are not simply ‘good’ or ‘bad’ species. Rather, how microbes participate in health or illness is dependent on their abundance in the overall ecosystem and how they relate to one another. The recommendations provided in your personal account have been developed on the basis of microbiome research by doctors and scientists.
You should only collect a stool sample in the absence of gastrointestinal symptoms. If you have been taking antibiotics or a short course of NSAIDs or have undergone surgery, wait at least 3 months before taking the Atlas Microbiome Test. If the medication taken is a part of your every day life, you will be able to provide a sample as it will be based on your most typical microbiome.
It is a rolling subscription, so you will receive a test kit every 3 months. You can choose to terminate it whenever you like. To cancel the subscription, just contact us via email firstname.lastname@example.org or do it yourself on the data sources page.
