GI MAP

GI-MAP Test For Athletes:

The prevalence of GI symptoms in endurance athletes is a whopping 84% – commonly affecting females more than males. Remember “you are what you absorb, not only what you eat.”

  • Have you noticed cramping and urgency to go when you increase your training load? 
  • Have you begun reacting to certain food groups since competing in endurance sports? 
  • Are you continually bloating no matter what you eat? 
  • Are you getting sick or fighting infection throughout the year?

The Gastrointestinal Microbial Assay Plus (GI-MAP) is an innovative clinical tool that measures gastrointestinal microbiota DNA from a single stool sample with state of the art, quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) technology.

The GI-MAP was designed to detect microbes that may be 

  • Disturbing normal microbial balance
  • Contributing to illness
  • Disturbing digestion and absorption,
  • Causing inflammation
  • Compromising immune function.

The GI-MAP is a home kit delivered and collected at your home via courier with a 3 week turnaround for results. For maximum benefit we recommend results are analysed by one of our registered practitioners however we can release results directly to the client.
