Kristofer Cook, CEO for Carbiotix, comments
"I am very pleased with the signing of this LinkGut agreement with LIVEYOUNGER as it represents our first agreement with a wellness company already offering a suite of testing services. Wellness coaching and other online applications in the same space are an important customer group, in addition to food & beverage companies and medical professionals. In a time where immune system health and preventative healthcare are front and center, providing gut health testing services and educating people that 70% of the immune system sits in the gut is extremely important. I look forward to assisting LIVEYOUNGER to provide a more comprehensive analysis of their customer's health and thus helping them fulfil their core mission.
Bill Gee, Chairman of LIVEYOUNGER Institute, comments
"We are happy to be working with Carbiotix and to offer the company's cost-effective gut health testing services in the UK and worldwide. Given the clear link between gut health and immune system integrity, adding a reliable gut health test will strengthen our portfolio of testing services and our ability to provide sound coaching advice. I believe that gut microbiome testing will be popular with our weight loss and lifestyle enhancement customers and recommended by our coaches.
