Solve IBS related symptoms

Our in-depth gut tests help identify what may be aggravating your IBS symptoms

Trust your gut, it knows more than you think.

Suffering from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) conditions such as; recurring abdominal pain and discomfort, bloating, diarrhoea, constipation, excess wind, nausea or the presence of mucus in your stools?
Studies show that your whole body depends on the health of your digestive system.

Identify the cause of your constipation or bloating

Any imbalance in your gut can negatively affect your digestive function. IBS can be caused by various factors such as; bacteria, parasites, viruses, food allergies / intolerances, changes to gut pH, or a lack of good bacteria such as lactobacilli or bifidobacteria.
Our digestive analysis tests are the perfect place for you to start identifying the cause of your constipation, bloating and persistent discomfort.
