The ratio of the bacterial strains Bacteroidetes, Firmicutes, Fusobacteria, Proteobacteria, Actinobacter and Verrucomicrobia in the intestinal flora is indicated in the finding. These strains have different functions and properties. During the test, the bacterial species belonging to each strain, which are necessary for healthy intestinal function, are also determined. The proportion of butyric acid-producing bacteria can also be seen in the finding, these bacteria can reduce the inflammatory processes in the intestine and improve intestinal function. The diversity of the microbiome, the bacterial species that occur in as much variety as possible, indicates the healthy functioning of the gut flora.
Only the bacterial components of the microbiome are tested.
