MeBO-Biolab gut dysbiosis study : Brief summary of results so far

This is a brief look at the results so far in the MeBO-Biolab gut dysbiosis study, looking at certain biomarkers in volunteers who feel they have a systemic body odor or halitosis problem. The main trend is that 5 out of 7 were higher than normal for ethanol, which in the test is thought to be produced by yeast fermentation in the small intestine. We are told by Biolab that the highest results for abnormal ethanol in their history is around 180-200. An average abnormal is around 80. As can be seen of our group, 2 of the testers were considerably high for ethanol. Gut permeability (a high result means 'leaky gut') did not seem to be as common or bad as expected overall. Only 2 were positive for indicans, and only 1 person for d-lactate (quite severely). Tester 5 was deficient for B2, which is a cofactor in FMO3 function. We have added this test since then to the study

An 8th person is currently testing, with a couple more showing an interest. We hope to get to around 15 volunteers minimum, and thank all volunteers for paying for their own tests and being part of the study.

Anyone who feels they have a systemic body odor or systemic sourced halitosis problem are our main target as volunteers for the study. The 5 tests would cost £170 in total. Anyone who would like to test can fill in the brief survey to join if they wish. The intention is to kickstart exploration of systemic body odors and halitosis via biomarker testing, in this case looking at a few gut dysbiosis markers. In the end, an abnormal result does not mean it is responsible for your problem, only that it may be a factor to consider :
