Are You Internally Fit ?

Increasingly, scientists are finding that the gut plays a critical role in performance and overall health. Gut health impacts digestive health, the immune system, brain health, emotional balance, and energetic efficiency.

When your gut health is out of whack, the effect is more than just a stomach ache—it changes how you move, how you feel, how you think, and how you recover.

Testing your gut provides critical insight into how your lifestyle choices and habits are affecting your internal health.

Your gut microbiome is a complex community of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and cells that live in your digestive tract—everything from entry to exit. Unfortunately, the gut microbiome is damaged by processed foods, preservatives, petrochemicals, medications such as antibiotics, and the daily physical and mental stresses we endure.

Testing your gut can provide confidence and confirmation about the choices that support your lifestyle. How you measure gut health matters.

The Ixcela test uses a pinprick of blood (about the size of a quarter) to test how well the critters in your gut are performing their jobs and creating the various chemicals your body needs.Unfortunately, stool tests only assess what comes out. DNA tests only show what your body is predisposed to based on your genes. The Ixcela gut microbiome test takes a snapshot of your gut’s current performance and then provides nutrition and lifestyle recommendations for how to improve it.

By assessing the levels of 11 key molecules found in your blood (called metabolites), the Ixcela test can help us identify specific nutrition, supplement, and lifestyle interventions that we use to create a tailored action plan.
