Human Microbes is a stool donor network currently focused on the USA and Canada, although they accept stool donations from around the world.

Their focus is to motivate eligible stool donors to donate their faeces, which is then used to treat diseases and other health issues via FMT.

“We aim to find the fewer than 0.1% of people who qualify and connect them with doctors, researchers, hospitals, clinical trials, and individuals,” reads their official website.

According to John Hopkins Medicine, Faecal transplantation (FMT) is a procedure where faeces is collected from a healthy donor and introduced into a patient’s gastrointestinal tract.

Some research shows that these faecal transplants can restore healthy bacteria in the lower intestine, which can help with various health issues.

The National Institutes of Health reported that prospective safety data is limited, and real-world FMT practice and outcomes are poorly described.

Here’s how to become a stool donor at Human Microbes: 

1.      Complete the screening questionnaire.

2.     Complete verification of stool type and physical fitness.

3.     A video interview.

4.    Stool and blood testing are paid for by the company or the recipient.

5.    Get paid $500 (R8,900) per stool. If you’re having a bowel movement every day, it can total $180,000 (R3.2-million) per year.

What are the basic stool donor qualifications?
  • Donors must be in exceptional physical and mental health—ideally, top young athletes.
  • Ideally, donors would be under 30 years old. Donors can be under 18, provided they have signed consent from their parents.
  • Donors should have minimal antibiotic use.
  • A specific Bristol Stool Type.
  • We’re accepting donors from anywhere in the world where they have access to dry ice.
