About the test

Our GI Pro Essential Gut Health Test uses a combination of qPCR testing and 16s rRNA sequencing to provide extensive insight into gut health.

It analyses microbial markers which are often related to chronic disease, such as bacteria, yeast and parasites, to give you and your clients consistent and personalised data. It also has functional markers such as calprotection and secretory IgA to give a broad understanding of digestive function.

Your client will get an easy-to-read, thorough, clinically relevant report into their gut health, allowing you to focus on effective recommendations to support your clients’ health in the best possible way.
