About Intestinal iQ™
The gastro-intestinal tract, often called the ‘gut’, is the portal to general health and wellness. It’s where 80% of our immune system resides. The gut may also be affected by enzymatic imbalances or a disruption in its large bacterial population, with the result being inflammation. The immune reaction to foods and the effects of inflammation may lead to a deterioration of the gut cells, making them more permeable to toxic influences. This situation, referred to as intestinal permeability (“Leaky Gut”), can in turn lead to chronic inflammation and auto immune disorders.
Our Intestinal iQ™ tests are a series of easy to use wellness tests that focus on these three key areas of the gut:
• “Leaky Gut” - the FLUIDS iQ® Zonulin test;
• Inflammation - the FLUIDS iQ® Diamine Oxidase\Histamine test;
• Enzymatic and bacterial imbalances that can lead to food sensitivities - the FLUIDS iQ® IgG 24 Foods Panel and IgG 88 Foods Panel tests.
These Intestinal iQ™ tests, offered individually, or in combination, can provide a more detailed, objective portrait of gut status and a clearer direction for treatment.
