Our story

More than a decade ago, microbiologist Dr. Jos Seegers already studied a bacterium that is now commonly used in probiotics.

Ten years ago, there was a growing interest in the role of the gut microbiome in maintaining good health and well-being.

At the same time, there were new developments in genomic technology (the technique that allows you to examine gut bacteria. Read more about it here) and Jos became even more fascinated about researching the human gut microbiome.

"We were all curious about people's microbial communities and wanted to make analysis of the gut microbiome available to the public. Thus, together with Derek Butler of BaseClear, I founded MyMicroZoo in 2016."

As the first company in Europe, MyMicroZoo was able to give anyone with an interest insight into what bacteria lived in what proportions in a person's gut. It soon became clear that people wanted to know above all whether they had a "healthy" microbiota. MyMicroZoo listened to this and with today's knowledge can give a good estimate of whether the gut bacteria are balanced or not. (You can read here why it is actually not possible to describe the perfect gut microbiota).

In recent years, scientific research has increasingly shown that there is an important relationship between bacterial groups, health, diet and lifestyle. With the combination of scientific knowledge and MyMicroZoo's database, we are now able to offer clients comprehensive microbiome report, including detailed taxonomic results and recommendations on diet and lifestyle how to improve results.
