Uncover the root cause of your GI symptoms and find relief.

Comprehensive Gut Health Test

GI Effects® testing helps you uncover problems in digesting and absorbing your food properly, potential inflammation, and the vital balance of the gut bacteria that can affect every system in your body - the gut microbiome.

Gut testing isn't just for GI complaints like diarrhea and bloating. A healthy GI tract affects mood, skin, immunity, athletic performance, and disease risk.

How will this test help me?

Testing helps guide the simple changes that can relieve your symptoms and have far-reaching effects on your overall health and wellbeing. Your results offer insight on:


Abnormal digestion could indicate a need for enzyme supplements.


Even when eating a healthy diet, your body may not be absorbing nutrients properly.


Could be a sign of a food allergy or other gastrointestinal issues that requires attention.

Bacteria Imbalance

Imbalances can lead to gastrointestinal symptoms, skin diseases, depression, anxiety, and more.

Harmful Bacteria

The presence of harmful bacteria may lead to diarrhea or gastrointestinal distress.

Intestinal Permeability

Inflammation and immune function markers can offer insights into leaky gut syndrome.

We're all about connections.

Especially when it comes to your health.

With Genova Connect, you'll not only have access to comprehensive testing, but also to a network of clinicians who can help you make sense of your results.

We know sometimes taking care of your health can feel like a guessing game, but we're here to help connect the dots for you. Are you ready to take the next step towards a happier, healthier you?


We provide results reports and links to educational resources. You may schedule time with a Cynergy provider to discuss your results for an additional cost, consult your own healthcare provider, or find a physician to help you understand your results and work with you to build a health plan.

It is your responsibility to ask your doctor what your test results mean. Genova Connect urges you to always share the test results with your doctor in order to make the best decisions for your health.

While our profiles are eligible for FSA/HSA funds, traditional health insurance can not be used to complete your purchase. Accepted forms of payment include Visa, Master Card, Discover, and American Express.

Most result reports will be available 7-17 days after being received by our lab.

The $15 physician fee is collected on behalf of a third-party healthcare practitioner (Cynergy Wellness) that will provide independent physician oversight of lab ordering and testing. This fee makes it possible to order testing without having to schedule an appointment with your physician first.

The fee does not cover any physician follow-up services. The physician fee is non-refundable. Learn more about Cynergy Wellness' services by reviewing the Terms and Conditions and Refund Policy.

If possible, plan to complete your collection early in the work week and be sure to ship your pack within 24 hours of collection to ensure specimens are viable.

You should also note that some collection packs contain materials that expire (this date is printed on the box label). Plan to collect and return your pack well before that date or within 45 days of receiving the collection pack, whichever comes first. If the pack is not returned within this timeline, we may not be able to complete your test.
