Comprehensive Stool AssayThe GI Effects Profile uses DNA analysis to identify microbiota including anaerobes, a previously immeasurable area of the gut environment. DNA assessment is specific and accurate, avoids the pitfalls of sample transport, reports results as specific numbers, and is more sensitive than classic laboratory methods.

Why Use Stool Analysis?

Gastrointestinal function is important for general health. The intestinal tract contains significant amounts of bacteria; some beneficial, some neutral, and some harmful. Balancing beneficial microbial flora in the gut is key to proper digestion, efficient nutrient usage, and ridding the body of waste and pathogens. Poor digestion and malabsorption can lead to immune dysfunction, nutritional insufficiencies, mental/emotional disorders, and autoimmune diseases, just to mention a few. All health begins in the gut.

For a thorough look at the gut:

  • Microbial – bacteria, fungi/yeast, and parasites
  • Mycology – fungi/yeast only
  • Parasitology – parasites only
  • Chemistries – digestive, inflammation, and absorption
