How does it work?
Optimizing the microbiome is a transformative path to overall health, with recent advancements in DNA technology and AI paving the way for a unique microbiome test using cutting-edge sequencing techniques. This test generates a comprehensive 60-page report, providing valuable insights for personalized recommendations by healthcare professionals.
The exclusive program, featuring the advanced shotgun metagenomic sequencing technology, provides quick turnaround times and is licensed by the Ministry of Health and Prevention. It offers tailored solutions for diverse health goals, from addressing gut issues to enhancing sports performance, weight management, and diabetes management.
One of the focus areas of the new program is improving the quality of life for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) patients through personalized dietary advice. Beyond digestion and immunity, ongoing research explores links between the microbiome and conditions like autoimmune diseases and neurodegenerative disorders.
The program also holds potential in sports performance by targeting specific gut bacteria that enhance athletic abilities through lactic acid metabolism and muscle recovery promotion.
On the record
"It's truly a new, exciting frontier that not many people are aware of. In a nutshell, the microbiome comprises the diverse community of bacteria, viruses and fungi residing within the intestine. These microorganisms, along with the metabolites they produce, play a crucial role in various bodily functions such as immunity, digestion and brain functioning," said Dr. Pranab Gyawali, Consultant Gastroenterologist at Mubadala Health Dubai. "We now recognize the significance of these products in contributing to and enhancing the overall well-being of the body."
