Bengaluru-based startup Leucine Rich Bio that developed South Asia’s first gut microbiome test, BugSpeaks, has added a new interactive feature on their site ( https://bugspeaks.com/quiz) that would allow everyone assess the state of their gut health online for free.
Various factors affect the micro-organisms residing in our intestine which in turn affect the intestinal health. This feature is in the form a quiz/questionnaire that incorporates publicly available microbiome research information and Leucine Rich Bio’s internal data and know-how on the gut microbiota domain.
The output is in the form of a score that guides the user about their state of the gut health.
Dr Debojyoti Dhar, Co-founder, Leucine Rich Bio says “the whole idea was to make people more aware about the importance of the gut health especially in today’s time of the pandemic. A healthy gut is important for healthy life. We have used our knowledge on the microbiome domain to come up with this interactive quiz. I hope this would help create more awareness about the importance of the gut health”.
Although, the score would indicate the state of the gut health, still for proper assessment microbiome test would be recommended.
