  1. Kal Ratcliffe (Registered Nutritionist & Gut Health Specialist verified healthcare provider verified buyer

    As a registered nutritionist and gut health specialist (, I have been using Invivo’s functional tests to support my clients to get to the underlying cause of their symptoms with great success. Often clients have had conventional medical tests which have come back normal, yet they still experience symptoms. My favourite go to test is the GI EcologiX, which is a simple to use, one sample test which makes it very convenient to use. Along with a food diary and case analysis, testing fast tracks progress as it helps to determine what may be going on for my clients and how we can address and support for optimal gut health. I love that it has NHS recognised markers included as well as looking at other key markers such as digestive capacity and the microbial balance to help me draw up a personalised plan. I have used many of the tests on myself and can definitely recommend them. Well done Invivo for the excellent practitioner support!

    I know some people may hesitate at the cost involved in this test but trust me you won’t regret it. I have battled to be heard re my symptoms and have had to pursue things myself with the help of a functional practitioner. This test has proven what I have been saying all along re my symptoms and is allowing me to hopefully get some help to relive some of my symptoms and hopefully I will be able to use these results at my next consultant appt to prove to them what I have been saying is wrong with me for the last 12 + months. Thank you for such a comprehensive test.

  3. Maureen Weightman verified buyer

    Recommended by a nutritionist and results clarified for me. This has been so interesting and helpful. I will be ordering again, in time, once I make the necessary dietary changes, to see how I have progressed.
