      What we measure
      and why

      • Gut Dysbiosis: Imbalance of good and bad bacteria can lead to health issues.
      • Digestion: Bacteria imbalance can lead to digestive problems and other health issues.
      • Inflammation: Bacteria imbalance can indicate disease and impact overall health.
      • Gut Diversity: A diverse range of gut microbes is essential for good health.
      • Immune Readiness: A healthy gut is necessary for a strong immune system.
      • Pathogens: Harmful bacteria, fungi, parasites can cause illness and impact gut and overall health.
