The Microbiome

The Ecosystem Inside Our Body.

The microbiome, strictly speaking, is the collection of microbes and their genes that work in your gut to aid digestion, ward off bad bacteria, and produce nutrients intergral to your health. Based on many studies, the imbalance of the microbiome, or dysbiosis, have been linked to several major diseases. That being said, diversity of the microbiota is paramount in ensuring that our bodies are the healthiest they can be. Beginning from birth, the human body is exposed to various environments which all aid in the uptake of a complex system of helpful bacteria.

The interesting thing about our microbiomes is that that since they're not actually made up of our own cells, humans only share 10% of their microbiome DNA, even if you are in the same family. That's because your microbiome is influenced by your environment and lifestyle. From eating your food to surrounding yourself with different people, almost everything you do influences your microbiome. Sun Genomics uses its PrecisionProbio ™ platform, which includes proprietary chemistry and a robust bioinformatic pipeline, to offer you the breadth and depth you need for valuable insight into your microbiome health. The breadth of microbes includes an ecosystem of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. The depth is level of strain since not all strains of the same species have the same functional properties.

What is Your Microbiome?

The microbiome, stricitly speaking, is the collection of bacteria and their genes that work in your gut to aid digestion, ward off bad bacteria, and produce nutrients that are intergral to your health. The interesting thing about our microbiomes is that that since they're not actually made up of our own cells, our microbiomes are only ten perecent similar, even if you are in the same family. That's because your microbiome is influenced by your environment and lifestyle. From eating your food to surrounding yourself with different people, almost everything you do influences your microbiome. That's why it's important to take care of your unique gut health.
