How it works


Collection method: Stool

Turnaround time: 14 working days

For this test, you provide a small sample of your stool (poo). This is sent to a lab, where it’s analysed for bacteria, yeasts, parasites, worms, zonulin and other biomarkers that indicate intestinal health.

Based on this information, you’ll receive personalised dietary and lifestyle advice to optimise your gut health—and support your health as a whole.

  1. Eat a normal diet for one week before the test.
  2. Collect a poo sample with the stool collector.
  3. Follow the instructions to return your sample.
  4. Receive in-depth results about your gut health.

Rated excellent 4.7 on Trustpilot and 4.8 on Google reviews.

This company is truly amazing. I've used other testing services in the past and all they do is send you the report which means absolutely nothing to the normal person. Healthpath go above and beyond and actually give you special advice about the supplements you need to take and break down your reports to give a clear understanding of what is going on inside you. Just so you know, they aren't pushing for a sale either of their supplements, Alex who is helping me (and is an absolute hero) offered a suggestion for a product which they don't even have in stock right now so I can start improving my health straight away while he waits for my SIBO reports to come back. Honestly, the company actually care and it is refreshing. Their customer service is also top notch and they go above and beyond to help out. They've also introduced a monthly payment option (which is fantastic) and will help me out when I need to re-test. I 100% recommend testing with Healthpath to get a real tailored program of the specific issues causing your digestive suffering, otherwise you're just throwing money at supplements which don't even work. Thank you team.

Frequently asked questions

I don’t have any gut bacteria issues. Do I need to take this test?

Our gut does far more than digest our food. Amongst many other things, it plays a role in making our neurotransmitters, it influences our hormones and it’s also home to most of our immune system. What this means is that if something isn’t right in the gut, it can show up in a number of ways—headaches, skin conditions, joint pain and more. To look at it another way: there are very few conditions that can’t be helped by addressing the gut. If you recognise yourself in any of the symptoms listed above, it may be worth taking the test.

Who should take the microbiome gut bacteria test?

This test provides information that simply can’t be gathered from a questionnaire or consultation, which means it could prove insightful for anyone. It’s particularly helpful for those suffering from digestive complaints, skin conditions and autoimmune diseases, and any other symptoms listed above.

Is the microbiome gut bacteria test worth the money?

We certainly think so. At Healthpath, we value evidence and trust—and this applies to all our products. Unless something can genuinely help you, we have no interest in offering it. We understand it can seem strange to pay for health tests (especially in the UK), but we also think that your health is one of the most valuable investments you can make.

Do you ship outside the UK?

At the moment we only ship to UK addresses. If you have a special request, feel free to get in touch.

How do I take the microbiome gut bacteria test?

You can download full instructions here.

Do I need to stop taking supplements or medications before taking this test?

You must not stop any medications in order to take this test. You should stop taking probiotics three days before taking the test, but other common supplements are unlikely to affect the results.

Is there anything I need to do before taking this test?

You must follow your normal diet a week before taking the test, as any dramatic changes in diet will lead to skewed results. You must also plan to take the test on Monday–Wednesday, as the samples can only be posted back to the lab on these days. For more information, you can download the test instructions here.

How long will it take to get my results?

Your results will be posted on your online account a maximum of two weeks after you return your samples.

How do I view my results?

Simply log in to your Healthpath account here and click ‘Tests’. You’ll be able to access your results and personalised recommendations two weeks after returning your samples (sometimes sooner).

How will I know what my results mean?

All your results data is accompanied by clear, jargon-free explanations. Our practitioners also review all results, providing personalised recommendations that are easy-to-follow and specific to you.

Can I get a gut bacteria test via the NHS in the UK?

Functional tests are highly specialised and currently not offered through the NHS. At present, the only option is to pay for them privately. We appreciate you want to spend your money wisely, which is why we only offer tests that are genuinely helpful.

Can I claim the cost of the test on my private health insurance?

It’s possible, though you’ll need to check the details of your insurance to see what’s included.
