About the test

Our Essential Gut Health Test uses a combination of 16s rRNA sequencing, qPCR testing and culturing 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.

You’ll get a thorough, extensive, clinically relevant report into gut health, so you can achieve meaningful changes with your clients.

The test will identify any underlying imbalances, you’ll be able to make accurate recommendations to support your clients’ health in the best possible way.
