More than half of Australia’s population live with pain and discomfort caused by gut health issues. Often under-diagnosed and untreated, gut health issues can lead to chronic conditions and have a huge impact on quality of life. A key to good health is having a healthy gut.
Our industry leading test is easy and fast, with results available within 24 hours. The cost and time required to test for leaky gut syndrome has been drastically reduced to make this an essential part of the diagnostic tree for any abdominal issues. Quicker testing and quicker results lead to improved health and enhanced quality of life.
Take our test to find out how healthy your gut is!
How it works
Easy and convenient for patients and doctors
Our simple test can measure the severity of leaky gut enabling doctors, clinicians, naturopaths and other wellness advisors to provide the advice needed to begin the healing process. The test can be completed in a clinic or medical practitioner’s office, and can be paired with a personalised dietary plan to help you start repairing your leaky gut, improve health and enhance your quality of life.
Accurate and reliable measure of gut health
A healthy small intestine absorbs the nutrients from the food we eat and introduces them to our blood stream as amino acids, sugars and fats. Leaky gut syndrome refers to damage to the lining of the small intestine resulting in larger particles of undigested food, bacterial toxins and germs entering the blood stream causing inflammation and irritation. This can manifest in symptoms from anxiety to abdominal pain, diarrhoea, migraine, mood swings and lowered immunity.
Early detection of leaky gut can prevent chronic disease in later life.

What is gut permeability?
Gut permeability is a measure of how healthy the inside lining of the gut is. It is closely linked with the gut microbiota and general health and wellbeing. Good gut health is essential for long term metabolic health – a gut that is unhealthy and too ‘leaky’ can cause inflammation and disease. Our test can detect whether or not the gut lining is compromised, providing an opportunity to treat the cause and prevent further damage.
