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 your ability to move better, faster, stronger, and longer.

Supercharge your body, mind and spirit with upgraded gut microbiome testing and for personalized interventions. 

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


How does your gut microbiome get damaged?


Processed Foods

Unfortunately, processed foods, high-sugar products, and a lack of diversity in our diet damages the gut microbiome. 



Modern medicine and antibiotics are important tools. Unfortunately, they can also damage the gut microbiome. 



The physical and mental stresses we endure each day produce chemicals that take a toll on the gut microbiome. 


What exactly is the gut microbiome?


Your gut microbiome is a complex community of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and cells that live in your digestive tract—everything from entry to exit. 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.

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!
