Good gut means good health

Our body’s systems are more interconnected than we think. A dysfunction in one system affects the other parts of the body. The gut is responsible for absorbing nutrients, not to mention communicating with the brain, regulating our hormones, and promoting our immune health. By taking care of your gut, you’re helping your whole body.

Gut Health Fun Facts

Gut health affects mood and emotions

Your gut microbiome not only produces hormones but it also houses a huge amount of serotonin, your body’s natural antidepressant molecule.

It is considered the second brain

Your gut has the power to think for itself and influence your brain in terms of emotions or impulses. Your gut sends more information or signals of emotion to your brain than the other way around

Gut health promotes skin health

While a healthy gut fights off bacteria, toxins, and inflammation, your skin detoxifies them after. When you have an unhealthy gut, your skin is the first one to show signs of it. When you have good gut health, you get clear, glowing skin from the inside out.

70% of your immune system is in your gut

Your immune health is located in your gut, that’s why you have to make sure you have a healthy amount of the good guys to fight off viruses, pathogens, and bad bacteria that make you sick.

Your gut affects your hormones

Your gut microbiome (bacteria ecosystem) acts like a conductor in your symphony of hormones. It influences nearly every kind of hormone in the body like your thyroid, estrogen, melatonin, and cortisol.

Not all stool tests are the same

The Gut 360 Stool Test detects if there are viruses, parasites, and bacteria that may be contributing to acute or chronic gastrointestinal symptoms and diseases like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).

This comprehensive stool test will go beyond the usual markers that other stool tests look for. This test helps us get the answers to some questions like:

  • Are there bad bacteria present that may be compromising your digestive system’s ability to separate food into the different nutrients your body needs?
  • Are there bad bacteria that’s messing up your mood because it’s affecting the hormones located in your gut like serotonin?
  • Are you able to flush out toxins or do they go to your bloodstream because of your leaky gut?
  • Are there yeast bacteria present that send signals to your brain to make you crave sugar?
  • Are you able to kill and expel pathogens and protect your health during flu season and especially during these times of the coronavirus outbreak?
  • What natural medications can work for you so you can have a healthy and balanced microbiome?

How can it help with my gut issues?

If you have problems with your digestion or symptoms of inflammation and have been wanting to know the underlying causes of your symptoms, this test may be useful.

Know the real causes of your gut problems

The test includes markers, which help identify, assess, and monitor the extent of inflammation present in your gut. These markers can also be used to differentiate between inflammation associated with potentially life-threatening inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which requires lifelong treatment and less severe inflammation that can be associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), which is frequently due to the presence of bacteria, viruses, or other microorganisms.
