Find the link between your gut microbes and personality

A new taking part programme by µBiome which will let you receive a free gut microbiome test kit! 

The programme is restricted to participants who are over 18years of age.

The bacteria in our body are so huge that it outnumbers our total body cells and weighs of almost same as our brain. Among these groups of microbes most of them inhabit in our gut and they are termed as ‘gut microbiome’. The gut neurones form a complex network of over 100 million of them. The vagus nerve connects the gut and the brain is thought to play role in difference personality like a communication between gut microbe and the brain.

Gut bacteria also plays role directly by regulating certain number of neurotransmitters like dopamine, GABA and serotonin that all affects our mood or behaviour.

Please find more about this study at µBiome and get the code for your test.
