Leaky Gut – Are you affected? – Find out now – Verisana

Do you have a "Leaky Gut"?

We offer you a way to check yourself if you are affected.


What can cause a Leaky Gut?

The so-called intestinal mucosa is a barrier between whatever is in our gut and the blood circulation. When the barrier is intact, it allows only water and the necessary nutrients to pass into the bloodstream. If it isn’t, however, our gut becomes “leaky” and harmful substances pass unhindered into the bloodstream. As symptoms are quite diffuse, it is important to understand the factors that can lead to a leaky gut.

  • Intake of antibiotics & cortisol
  • Mycosis (e.g. candida overgrowth) and virus infections
  • An imbalanced mictobiome
  • An unbalanced diet

What people say about the Leaky Gut Test

Causes of antibiotics

I did the test for my little son. He had to take antibiotics several times as a newborn and had severe indigestion problems afterwards. The test kit came quickly, as did the results. It has actually confirmed what we suspected (a disturbed intestinal flora). Now we gut renovation with probiotics and will test again in a few months to see what has improved.

Regular Candida infections

I often have clients coming to me because they suffer from regular Candida infections. They got the infections treated by their family doctor, but it just keep coming back. In these kind of situations, very likely the Candida infections are only a symptom and not the root cause behind it. That's why I always recommend a comprehensive gut analysis like the leaky gut complete test. In most cases we then find the cause being a damaged mucosa and with that treated, the infections don't come back.

Easy, convenient and fast

I have long suffered from intolerances and intestinal complaints. I even had a colonoscopy, with no result. Still, the foods I could eat got more and more limited. Verisana was the first to diagnose that I am suffering from the so-called Leaky Gut Syndrome. Now I am working on my intestinal mucous membrane together with my health practitioner and I am already able to eat some things I couldn’t eat for about a year. Thank you Verisana!

Do you have questions?

Here are some of our frequently asked questions. For further questions, please contact us:

I take medication. Can this affect the outcome?

That depends on the test you want to carry out and the medications you are taking. In case of doubt, please ask your doctor regarding the areas that are influenced by the medication prescribed by him and do not stop taking your medication without consulting him.

How long can you store or use stool samples?

Stool samples need to be analyzed as soon as possible after collection, as they only last for a couple of days. To ensure that, please make sure to collect the samples on a monday and post them the same day. You can keep them in the refrigerator on that day until they are shipped (do not freeze). We check the collection date of every sample arriving, making sure the sample is not too old. If, for some reason, the shipping took longer than expected and the sample is too old to ensure correct results, we will contact you immediately and send you a new test kit.

I forgot to put the sample dispatch note in the package when sending the sample back.

Please send us the completed and signed dispatch note, preferably by mail to contact@verisana.co.uk. Unfortunately, we can not complete your sample without a dispatch note.

Can I get advice for my test result? Can you tell me what remedy to take?

For legal reasons, our findings do not include individualized therapy recommendations. If you have any questions regarding the understanding of your findings, please contact our laboratory team.

I take probiotics. Does this affect the outcome?

Taking probiotics means supplying bacteria to your body. In conclusion, carrying out a stool test while taking probiotics will make it unpossible to distinguish the amount of natural and unnatural bacteria in your gut. If you aim to find out about the amount of natural bacteria in your gut, we recommend you to stop taking probiotics two weeks before carrying out the stool test.
