Greater bacterial diversity has been correlated with wellness, but diversity can vary greatly among healthy individuals. When you have your microbiome sequenced with uBiome, you will receive a diversity score. Diversity is determined using the Simpson's Diversity Index. Scores range from 0 to 10, with 10 being the most diverse. The average gut sample generates a score of between 6 and 9, but the distribution varies depending on the type of sample.
