Good health begins in the gut

More than half of Australia’s population live with pain and discomfort caused by gut issues.

Often under-diagnosed and untreated, gut health issues can lead to chronic conditions and have a huge impact on quality of life. The key to good health is having a healthy gut.

Increased Intestinal Permeability (‘Leaky Gut’) occurs when the cells lining the gut become damaged, 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.

If you’re experiencing pain or discomfort, take our test to find out how healthy your gut is!



Accurate and reliable measure of gut health.

We have developed an industry leading test for leaky gut which is easy and fast. Our simple test can measure the severity of leaky gut, enabling doctors, dietitians, naturopaths and other wellness advisors to provide the advice needed to begin the healing process.

Quicker testing and quicker results lead to improved health and enhanced quality of life.

Early detection of leaky gut can prevent chronic disease in later life.


How can I take the test?

The test is available at the CSIRO Nutrition and Health Research Clinic in Adelaide.

  • Read the patient information sheet. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

  • Call the CSIRO clinic (1800 850 036) to make an appointment. Bring your referral form with you to the appointment. Payment is required on the day of the test.
