We all try to live a somewhat healthy life right? Every day it seems like there is new news on what we should and shouldn’t be doing to improve our gut health. I try to live a balanced lifestyle. I drink kombucha, take vitamins including a probiotic, add collagen to my coffee and tea daily and have recently added MCT oil into my routine but I also like my donuts and cookies. I’m not perfect but I like to think my healthy choices are having a positive effect on my health. How can any of us really know if all these healthy lifestyle choices are really making a difference in our gut health? Biohm has just made it easier to know with their Gut Report Kit.
This at-home test kit created by a microbiome scientist, Dr. Ghannoum, is super simple to use. The report kit gives a comprehensive review of your gut health. The test gives you insight into the types of bacteria and fungi living in your gut…the good and bad ones! This makes it much easier to know what diet and lifestyle changes are working or maybe not working as well as you thought.
So for the not so glamorous part – you’ll have to take a fecal swab for this test, but hey at least you can do it in the privacy of your own bathroom. Who said getting to know your gut health was going to be pretty? So just use the swab provided by Biohm and return in their pre-paid package, fill out a quick questionnaire which will be emailed to you and you’ll receive your results in a couple weeks.
I sent my sample back a few days ago and now I’m just waiting for my results. In the meantime, I’ll keep sipping my daily morning kombucha and taking my probiotics hoping they’re keeping my gut health in balance. Check back in a few weeks and I’ll share my results with you all!
If you’re interested in getting to know your gut health you can get your own Biohm Gut Report Kit right here.
