Before trio-smart, breath tests traditionally only measured two gases: hydrogen and methane. trio-smart is the first and only at-home breath test available that can measure the three primary fermented gases found in the gut microbiome: hydrogen, methane, and hydrogen sulfide. This means that you can now get the most complete picture of your gut health with a three-gas breath test, which is often referred to as a "SIBO test.”
What Is trio-smart?
trio-smart is a mail-in doctor-ordered breath test with an at-home sample collection kit that can indicate certain gastrointestinal conditions like small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), intestinal methanogenic overgrowth (IMO), and/or excess hydrogen sulfide. trio-smart is the only breath test that can measure the third primary fermented gas, hydrogen sulfide.
What Does trio-smart Detect?
The trio-smart breath test measures the three primary fermented gases in the gut microbiome: hydrogen, methane, and hydrogen sulfide. Abnormal levels of these gases can suggest SIBO, IMO, or excess hydrogen sulfide.
A More Complete Picture
Breath testing for hydrogen and methane only is incomplete. Many people do not know that these three gases are not independent of each other. In fact, they interact with each other in a complex way offering a more complete picture of your gut health. That’s why measuring all three gases with a breath test is important.
