Screening Technology in Gut Imbalances

Our gastrointestinal tract hosts more than 1000 species of bacteria that work symbiotically with us to promote a balanced immune system, metabolize nutrients, harvest energy, fortify our mucosa, and influence the disease’s development. Microbiota is a term used to refer to and associate bacteria, eukaryotes, viruses, and at least one archaeon. It plays such an important role in human health that it is called “the forgotten organ.” Hence, the importance of screening gut imbalances.

The balance between our bacteria, what it metabolizes, and the end product is important to our health. It ultimately has an important impact on our skin health, immune system, autoimmune disorders, and peripheral inflammation. This day we can rely on the best technology to perform unique assessments and screen our gut health or gut imbalances. Gut Zoomer by Vibrant provides us with the opportunity to take a closer look into our gut and allows us to know how our daily functions get affected by our microbiota.

Gut Zoomer:
  • Detect over 300 microorganisms.
  • 99% specificity.
  • 98% sensitivity.
  • Uses whole-genome data.
  • One- time stool collection.

The Vibrant Gut Zoomer is the most comprehensive test available to date. This assessment measures the quantity of each species or genus that provides a relation between disease and inflammation. Besides providing a full array of gut microorganisms, the Vibrant Gut Zoomer determines enzymes and bile deficiencies that can promote inflammatory symptoms.

The Gut Zoomer can provide recommendations and lifestyle changes to improve the symptoms to a variety of conditions like:
Intestinal permeability (SCFA producing bacteria and tight junction integrity)Intestinal disorders (IBS and IBD related bacteria)
Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)- related bacteriaCardiovascular health (inflammation influencing and TMAO-related bacteria)
Autoimmune health (celiac, Crohn’s, rheumatoid arthritis, etc.)Neurological health (MS, Parkinson’s, and more)
Liver diseases (cirrhosis, hepatitis, cholangitis, and more)Metabolic health (Obesity, diabetes, etc.)
Nutrition (Vitamin production, oxalate metabolism)Microbiome and hormone connections (Beta-glucuronidase and Beta-glucosidase)
67 pathogenic bacteria24 Intestinal parasites
8 viruses5 Fungal or yeast species
5 worm species6 antibiotic resistance genes measured
Nevertheless, Gut Zoomer by Vibrant can deliver further information about our gut health because it measures markers of functional digestive status like:
Calprotectin
Pancreatic elastase 1
Bile acids
Cholic acid
Chenodeoxycholic acid
Deoxycholic acid
Lithocholic acid
Acetic acid
Butyric acid
Propionic acid
Valeric acid
Total SCFAs
ß-glucuronidase

Previously, it was thought that one microbe was the main factor to develop a specific disease, as well, as one enzyme deficiency would cause one condition. Now we know that we have to see the whole picture, a holistic perspective; diseases are not caused by one microbe, but dysbiosis promotes different conditions.

We recommend the assessment with Vibrant Gut Zoomer for patients struggling with:
Autoimmune conditionsInflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis)
Irritable Bowel SyndromeCeliac disease
Cardiovascular diseaseMetabolic syndrome
DiabetesLiver and gallbladder disease
Neurological disordersMood abnormalities
Skin rashes (eczema or dermatitis)Inflammatory symptoms
Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)Fatigue
Gas and bloatingIndigestion
InfectionsIntestinal permeability (‘leaky gut syndrome’)
Nutrient deficienciesGERD
Food sensitivitiesMalnutrition
