About the test

This straightforward urine test is useful for confirming possible imbalances that can contribute to chronic illnesses, neural disorders and allergies.

Through measuring metabolic byproducts, this great all-round test evaluates intestinal yeast and bacteria, vitamin and hormone metabolism, energy cycle function, intestinal wall integrity, nutritional deficiencies and fatty acid metabolism.

The results can be used to guide appropriate and helpful nutritional and supplemental changes, to improve a number of health conditions.
