Functional Gut Test

(4 customer reviews)

How healthy is your gut?

Gut health is vital to overall health. Dysbiosis (a microbial imbalance of the gut) will often lead to a vast array of modern illnesses. On the other hand, a healthy gut, will keep your immune system strong fighting off pathogens including COVID-19, improve absorption of nutrients resulting in better overall health and less chance of deficiencies.

NeoVos have developed an innovative test to identify your gut health.

The functional gut test measures key biomarkers, produced by gut bacteria, called Short-Chain Fatty Acids (SCFAs) as a universal indicator of gut health.

What Is Measured?

expand section

Products of gut bacteria, such as Short-Chain fatty Acids, which consist of acetate, propionate and butyrate.

Why are these biomarkers measured?

SCFAs are vital for gut health, mental health and overall health, but the main reason that they have been selected is because they are the main product of bacteria in the gut, meaning they measure how well the bacteria in the gut are producing key chemicals. And this is specific to YOU, taking into account your age, diet, weight and lifestyle.

How are the biomarkers measured?

Advancements in technology now mean that SCFAs can be extracted from a stool sample and measured using GCMS (Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry), the gold standard in analytical chemistry to determine their concentration.

When to collect a sample?

expand section

Collect your stool sample anytime Monday to Sunday, when following your typical diet and lifestyle so that your results are representative to your normal routine. Try to avoid being ‘super healthy’ for a couple of weeks before collecting your sample as this can over-estimate your scores.

When not to collect a sample?

expand section

Avoid collecting a sample if you have taken antibiotics in the last 4 weeks, are having a bout of illness or digestive issues such as diarrhoea or the day after a big night on the town. You may continue taking any supplements that you are currently taking.

  1. MIKE ATKIN

    To be honest I could have come up with the same diagnosis based upon my answers to the questionnaire. Without the questionnaire it would have been slightly more impressive if indeed it was based upon proper analysis.

  2. Ann whyte

    Excellent advise to improve my diet and health, I’ve made the changes and will be doing another test shortly to see how much my score has improved-which I know it has as I feel so much better.

  3. Rob Ball

    The home test kit was very easy to use and the comprehensive detailed lab report that followed was easy to understand.
    Would highly recommend if you are looking to kickstart a healthy lifestyle change.
    Fab product hence the 5 star rating.

  4. Mark Jarvis

    Super easy kit and detailed report. Will definitely be recommending to others and using again after a few life style changes.
