- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Celiac disease
- Cardiovascular disease
- Metabolic syndrome
- Liver and gallbladder disease
- Neurological disorders
- Mood abnormalities
- Skin rashes (eczema or dermatitis)
- Inflammatory symptoms
- Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)
- Gas and bloating
- Intestinal permeability (‘leaky gut syndrome’)
- Nutrient deficiencies
- Food sensitivities
Facts About Microbiome Imbalance
Examining the entire ecosystem in the human gut can be challenging, but Vibrant Wellness has created a test that can measure hundreds of species of microbes at once, alongside functional markers of digestion and inflammation – providing the most comprehensive digestive health test on the market.
With over 170 species of bacteria measured, the Gut Zoomer can aid advanced practitioners in detecting root causes of acute or chronic illness that stem from the gastrointestinal tract, with correlations to disease states and health risks to guide primary and secondary interventions.
The Gut Zoomer also includes a robust panel of pathogenic bacteria, yeast, viruses, and parasites that are known to cause serious health concerns in humans.
Testing methods for the intestinal microbiome can be costly and time-consuming. Moreover, accurately measuring levels of various microbes can be challenging due to sample stability, culture techniques, sensitivity of a platform, human error, and more.
Additionally, direct population counts can vary widely from person to person, meaning that this may not be a very useful measurement altogether.
Vibrant’s propriety silicon microarray technology reduces error, enhances sensitivity and specificity, and provides the most accurate measure of the relative abundance of an organism in the intestinal microbiome.
Measuring the relative abundance of a microorganism through 16sRNA allows Vibrant to assess a large number of organisms – even down to the subspecies level – in a short amount of time, eliminating the false positives and false negatives common to other testing methodologies.
