Comprehensive Gut Biome & Health Test (Verisana)Stool
Performed by: Verisana Lab
With the Comprehensive Gut Biome & Health Test, you receive an extensive examination of your intestine based on your stool sample:
1.) Candida and mold
2.) Bacterial imbalance of the intestinal flora
3.) Secretory IgA (gut mucosal immunology)
4.) Helicobacter pylori
The intestinal mucosa forms a mechanical barrier in healthy people: it is permeable to nutrients and liquids, but impermeable to harmful substances.
Beyond that, the gut and its bacteria are of great importance for the immune system – nearly 80% of all immune cells are located there. However, the intestinal mucosa can fulfill its task only with an intact gut flora.
The test analyzes the values of the following analytes:
Proteus sp., Klebsiella sp., Enterobacter sp., Citrobacter sp., Pseudomonas sp., Other aerobic bacteria, Bifidobacterium sp., Bacteroides sp., Lactobacillus sp., Clostridium sp., Candida albicans, Candida sp., Geotrichum sp., Mold, Secretory IgA, Helicobacter pylori.
Verisana's Comprehensive Gut Biome & Health Test helps you to get a comprehensive picture of your gut health as the state of your gastrointestinal system is extremely important for your overall well-being.
