DNA Stool Test | Comprehensive GI Effects | 3-day Collection | Europe

Description

Gastrointestinal tract (GI tract) function is important for general health. This includes balancing beneficial bacteria in the gut to enhance health benefits. GI tract health is key to digestion, nutrient usage, and ridding the body of waste and pathogens.

Poor digestion and malabsorption can lead to immune dysfunction, nutritional deficiencies, and various disease states. Poor GI tract function can also lead to food allergies and other toxicities. The GI-Effects Metamextrix stool test uses advanced DNA technology to analyze GI tract health.

Your intestinal tract contains significant amounts of bacteria, some beneficial, some neutral, and some that can be harmful. It is essential to know the bacterial balance of your GI tract, especially if you have long-standing health problems. Health-enhancing intestinal bacteria serve to prevent the overgrowth of potentially harmful bacteria in the gut.

Symptoms of an unhealthy GI tract may not always be present. This specific Metametrix stool test gives a detailed analysis of GI tract health. You and your healthcare practitioner can use the information to develop a plan to restore the optimal function of the GI tract. Read more

Why should you use the Genova GI-Effects Stool Test?

  • Requires only one, single sample collection. That said, there is a 3-day collection option that is better at detecting parasites.
  • Greater accuracy due to advanced technology DNA analysis.
  • Evaluate the balance of GI tract bacteria shown to contribute to weight gain.
  • If autoimmunity is a concern, the DNA stool test may point out areas of the gut that could negatively impact the immune system.
  • Identifies drug resistance genes to help determine ideal drug agents.
  • To maintain good health
  • See a Sample Report or read the Technical Information for the GI Effects DNA stool test.
