The large intestine contains about 2 kg of bacteria, known as the intestinal microbiota. These bacteria play an active role in the body, influencing, for example, the immune system, brain activity and vitamin production. The bacterial composition varies per person and is highly individual.
The MyMicroZoo analysis shows the composition of your microbiota, and gives insight into how to improve your vitality. Your personal MyMicroZoo report provides an overview of the bacteria that are specific to you. Based on current knowledge, we provide insight into the balance between health-bearing and less good bacteria. You will receive tips on how to positively influence this composition through nutrition and lifestyle. When ordering you additionally opt-in for one of our partners without obligation. Our partners can provide you with a personal advice based on your test outcome. MyMicroZoo closely follows microbiome related scientific research.

Faecalibacterium prausnitzii is a common inhabitant of the human gut. This bacterium can represent 5 to 20% of the fecal microbiota of healthy people.
Hi! I am Roseburia and I produce butyrate by eating plant carbohydrates. Butyrate is a fatty acid that is good for your intestine
I am Eubacterium rectale. I produce butyrate that helps your intestine stay healthy.
Hi I am E. coli and I am present in many individuals, but have a bad reputation when I am present in large numbers.
Hi, I am Blautia. Other bacteria produce gasses when they eat big sugars. I can use these gasses to grow and in turn keep your gut clean and stable.
Greetings human! I am an Anaerostipes and I can degrade fibres to produce healthy fatty acids.
Hi, I am Lactobacillus and produce lactate, a fatty acid that other bacteria like to eat.
I am Bifidobacterium longum and I live in the gut of babies where I protect them from mean bacteria.
I am a Veillonella, a lovely small round bacterium that eats lactate produced by my brother and sister bacteria.
I'm Akkermansia and I degrade mucus. I keep your gut in good shape
I am Bacteroides fragilis and I am known to stimulate your immune system.
Hello! I am Prevotella and I help you by eating fibers from your food that you cannot degrade yourself.
We are a group of bacteria that can degrade undigestible fibers. We use this to feed many other bacteria
My name is Dorea longicatena and I grow in long chains of cells
I'm a real bacteroides and like many of my cousins, I'm fond of fibers
bacterial genus related to leanness
I'm an important member of the Blautia family. We provide lots of goodies to our neighbors in the gut.
I like to play hide and seek! Despite the fact that I'm abundantly present it took until 1974 before I was discovered!
In a healthy gut I'm quite harmless, but kill my neighbors with antibiotics and I can become really nasty!
Greetings, allow me to introduce myself. My name is comes, Coprococcus comes. I'm one of those healthy, butyrate producing bacteria
Hi, I like sushi, especially soja. The more you eat of that, the more likely it is that you will find me.
Hi, I look like bactericides, but I'm not even though I can also digest fibers very well!
Greetings all. My name sometimes causes confusion. If you want to learn more about me you'll have a better chance of finding something when you search for Clostridium bartlettii.
Guess what! I like xylan. To feed me you will need to eat lots of plant cells!
Hi all, i'm a big fan of probiotics who give me the food that helps me making propionate and butyrate.
Hi, do you like cruesli and muesli bars? So do I!
Oh yes, I'm another one of those butyrate producing bacteria, so be happy when you see me as part of your microbiota!
When you see me, there is a high chance that my surname is formicilis
Hi, unlike many of my neighbors, I don't mind the occasional wiff of oxygen.
Hi y'all, I just love ripe fruits!
I am an important (as a matter of fact, as far as I know the only) member of the Gemmiger's
If you here my name you probably think of food poisoning!
I love sushi!
You will receive the results in your own MyMicroZoo account, where you can track progress of your microbiome status over time for multiple tests.
We provide an information booklet describing how the microbiota can influence your health. In addition we enable you to compare your bacterial composition with others and we will give examples on how a different diet can help you change your gut microbial composition.
