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.

What you will learn?

Health

Your microbiome health score and protection from 5 disease risks

Nutrition

Proportion of probiotics and beneficial bacteria, micronutrient synthesis potential and diversity score

Foods

Weekly personalised food recommendations to improve your microbiome health in 17 areas

Bacterial composition

List of bacteria found in your microbiome (%) and what enterotype you belong to

Take care of your bacteria and they will take care of you

The gut microbiome plays an important role in digestion and nutrient metabolism. It also protects the body from pathogenic microbes.

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.

Atlas Microbiome Test simply explained to Daily Mirror readers. The article shows how the test works, where the data comes from and how helpful the results can be. Read the full article.
Emily Hodgkin shows how personal food recommendations based on one’s gut bacteria composition can help to lose weight. Helping your microbiome community stay healthy is a better idea than suffering from the restrictions of any fad diet. Read the full article.
Guardian columnist Zoe Williams has happily discovered that her gut microbiome is like that of a Village Peasant. Her bacteria is doing a great job in keeping some diseases away. Read the full article.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I take a microbiome test?
The OMBucha Microbiome Test analyses the types of bacteria present and their proportion in the overall microbiome. It provides information about the various functions of your gut bacteria, like the extent to which they protect you against certain diseases and inflammation, as well as what vitamins they synthesise. You will also get recommendations to improve and maintain the balance of your microbiome by adding specific foods to your diet.
What’s the difference between this test and laboratory analysis?
Atlas Biomed uses advanced technology to analyse the DNA of your gut bacteria. Unlike conventional laboratory analysis, the OMBucha Microbiome Test not only qualitatively determines the composition of bacteria, but also calculates the proportion of the different types of bacteria in the microbiome.The 16S rRNA sequencing that is used for the Atlas test is more sensitive: it can detect bacteria that cannot be cultivated in Petri dishes (the method routinely employed by laboratories for stool sample analysis).
How do we know that bacteria affects our health?
More than 20,000 scientific articles have been published about the gut microbiome and its relationship with various health conditions over the past decade. Every month, new research is released in this field. We used these publications to develop an interpretation system that is now featured in our microbiome test. 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 community and how they relate to one another. The recommendations provided on your personal account have been developed on the basis of microbiome research by doctors and scientists.
How to prepare for the test?
You don’t have to change your diet. Keep eating the way you normally do - this will allow us to get an accurate picture of your ‘normal’ microbiome and provide recommendations on how to improve or maintain it. You should only collect a stool sample in the absence of gastrointestinal symptoms. If you have been taking antibiotics or a long course of NSAIDs or have undergone surgery, wait at least 3 months before taking the OMBucha Microbiome Test.
What is the Atlas Microbiome Test subscription mode?
If you choose this option, we will send you a new OMBucha Microbiome Test kit every 3 months to your chosen address. As soon as the test kit is sent, we charge the order price to the bank card used for the initial payment. 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 hello@ombucha.co.uk or do it by yourself on the data sources page. If your first order contains both the OMBucha DNA and Microbiome Tests, the delivery is free of charge.
