Ixcela tests how well your gut is functioning to support the needs of your body.

Rather than counting how many bacteria are in your gut microbiome or identifying what types are in there, we believe it’s more important to understand if those bacteria are doing their job. That’s why Ixcela measures the output of bacteria—things like serotonin, tryptophan, and indole-3-propionic acid.
