The GI Effects Microbial Ecology Profile is the preferred stool test for the evaluation and identification of bacteria and parasites. It has been enhanced to offer:

Balancing gut microbiota is key for improving core gastrointestinal functions, such as digestion and absorption of nutrients, as well as metabolic functions. Poor digestion and malabsorption may impact immune function, optimum nutritional status, and mood.
