OMBucha® Home DNA Test – UK
Health risks, hereditary conditions, nutrition recommendations and ancestry
DNA. The building blocks of life:
DNA, also known as deoxyribonucleic acid, is contained within the trillions of cells that make up your body. It serves as a blueprint that determines the physical features of all living things, including you! It looks like a twisted ladder or, as scientists call it, a ‘double helix’. This genetic information was passed on from your parents, which is why it is ‘hereditary’, making you completely unique.
OMBucha now offer an easy-to-use DNA Test that you can take in the privacy of your own home.
Since the discovery of DNA in the 1950s, scientists have been investigating the human genome. Clear links have been established for many aspects of human health, like how genes influence disease risk, metabolism, food intolerances, response to exercise and many personal traits. Thanks to major technological advances, you can now learn what your DNA says about you.

When is it the right time? When do you start investing in your health as the real wealth in life? Now you can take control and get enrich your life with our industry leading, evidence based, DNA Testing and #FeedYourSpirit
We take health, and wellbeing very seriously – it’s why we started brewing Kombucha and adopting fermented foods into our own lifestyle. Driven by a passion to create authentic fermented Kombucha, irritated by the growing commercial market place of mainstream flavoured fizzy mass produced ‘Kombucha’ we’ve gone a step further and integrated a partnership with the leading gut health laboratories and microbiome specialists. Our mission is to provide a world class health service whereby you can take control of your health from the inside out.
“No one will ever care more about your health than you – take control of it!“
Improve your health with our personalised recommendations and lab tests
Here at OMBucha® we believe that good health begins in the gut. Let food be thy medicine!
We also strongly believe that no person should put up with symptoms of dis-ease in their daily lives.
The world is ready for a health revolution, and now, technology to help each individual take control of their health is becoming both accessible and affordable.
We believe in the need to tackle the root causes of conditions – rather than simply treating symptoms.

The interpretations provided by the Atlas DNA and Microbiome Tests are based on the scientific study of European populations. This is why the disease risk assessment and population characteristics are more focused on people of European descent, and may be less relevant to people of other origins. The Atlas DNA and Microbiome Tests are not for diagnostic purposes or disease management. We do not recommend taking these tests if you are pregnant. If you have recently undergone a course of antibiotics, you should wait three months before giving a sample for testing. Our services are reserved for the use of people over the age of 18. To ensure the accuracy of your results, read the instructions carefully. The average processing time of a sample (after reception at the laboratory) was less than 3 weeks in October 2017. However, each sample is analysed on a case-by-case basis, so the whole process may take as long as 8 weeks.

How Does It Work?
All you need is saliva
When you receive your kit, just spit in the tube and send it back in the original box, which already includes prepaid postage. We’ll do the rest, like making sure the sample is valid, checking 660,000 polymorphisms (gene variants) and interpreting the data. To see your results, simply log on to your personal account.
What You Will Learn
The results of your test will be added to your personal account. This process usually takes up to 8 weeks. You will be notified by email as soon as the results are ready; details include: Health risks, hereditary conditions, nutrition recommendations and ancestry.
The DNA Test was developed by 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.

We test your DNA and microbiome, using the latest technology from Illumina, a world leader in the field of molecular analysis. Your genetic data is analysed in a certified EU laboratory in the Netherlands, accredited with ISO 15189. We use algorithms based on published scientific research to analyse your DNA and establish personalised lifestyle recommendations.
Belonging to a haplogroup provides information about where your ancestors lived, how they moved around the planet and where your closest relatives are now.
Types of risk factors: – external (e.g., environment, economic situation, profession) – characteristics of the human body (e.g., elevated blood cholesterol, arterial hypertension, hereditary predisposition) – lifestyle (smoking, diet, exercise)
Disease risk is the sum of all risk factors, which is why Atlas users are invited to fill in the Health and Lifestyle Survey to get the most accurate assessment of their individual risk.
DNA contains information on the structure of various types of RNA and proteins. It is made up of four nucleotides, known as adenine, guanine, thymine and cytosine or A, G, T, C for short. They are connected together in a specific pattern: adenine binds only to thymine and guanine only to cytosine. These nucleotides encode information about every protein in the body, thus determining the phenotype of a person (i.e., the set of observable characteristics).
