GI Effects Stool Analysis Profile

GI Effects is the latest advancement in stool analysis for truly comprehensive results. GI Effects is unlike any other stool analysis profile, going beyond the standard parameters for identifying gastrointestinal disorders. GI Effects use DNA analysis to identify microbiota with 100% accuracy including anaerobes, a previously immeasurable area of the gut environment. GI Effects Stool Analysis Profiles goes beyond to bring you the most comprehensive stool analysis to date. Now uses O&P technology and PCR technology. GI Effects Profiles use DNA analysis to identify microbiota with 100% accuracy — including anaerobes, a previously immeasurable area of the gut environment. In addition to much more comprehensive bacteriology, mycology, and parasitology, GI Effects Profiles report drug resistance genes, antibiotic and botanical sensitivities, gliadin-specific sIgA, Elastase1, plus other inflammation, digestion, and absorption markers clinicians requested — with no hidden or add-on costs.

Gastrointestinal function is important for general health. The intestinal tract contains significant amounts of bacteria which, when imbalanced, have been associated with IBS and IBD, immune disorders, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Balancing gut microflora is key for optimizing digestion and absorption of nutrients, as well as metabolic functions. Poor digestion and malabsorption can lead to immune dysfunction, nutritional insufficiencies, mental/emotional disorders, and autoimmune diseases.

  • Anaerobes
    Anaerobes, making up over 95 percent of microbiota in the gut, can be identified using GI Effects.
  • Parasites
    Using O&P (OPR) technology, an unlimited number of parasites can be detected. To date, over 40 parasitic organisms have been identified.
  • Adiposity Index
    Measures imbalances of the two predominant bacterial groups in the human GI tract, bacteroidetes and firmicutes, which have been associated with obesity in some studies.
  • Absorption
    Indicates absorption issues with elevated levels of long-chain fatty acids, cholesterol, or total fat (the sum of gut lipids).
  • Inflammation
    Lactoferrin is a marker of gut immune function, and is clinically utilized to identify the presence of gastrointestinal inflammation.
  • Sensitivities
    Pharmaceutical and botanical sensitivities are included.

Gastrointestinal Function is important for general health. This includes finding a balance between beneficial microbial flora in the gut to enhance health benefits. GI health is key in digestion, nutrient usage, and ridding the body of waste and pathogens. Poor digestion and malabsorption can lead to immune function disorders, nutritional insufficiencies, and disease state. Poor GI function can lead to food allergies and other toxicities.

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