The purpose of this research is to test the prototype for commercialization of the Gut Check™ analysis kit to uncover the gut microbiome. Why microbiome? The microbes within your gut include bacteria, viruses, etc. play a crucial role in maintaining good health. Maintaining good balance of these microbes in the gut will benefit the health of the individual. The imbalance in diversity of bacteria can lead to short term effects such bloating, indigestion, change in mood or energy levels. Scientific research shows that these imbalances can lead to chronic long-term effects such as obesity, diabetes, IBS, IBD, cancer, depression, Alzheimer's, etc. Our unique Gut Check™ analysis kit development allows to understand the microbial composition in gut and foresee the disease risks.
