Injoy Featured in Dr. Crawford M.D.'s latest blog, "The Gut Microbiome Revealed"

The following post features an excerpt for Dr. Kim Crawford’s recent blog post, “The gut microbiome revealed+ gut health supplements, microbiome labs & more!"


The Importance of Gut Health

In a recent article, “The gut microbiome revealed+ gut health supplements, microbiome labs & more!" by Kim Crawford, M.D. she provides a detailed look at the gut microbiome, its importance for health, and various ways to support gut health through diet, supplements, and testing.


Dr. Crawford's Perspective on Microbiome Testing

In a section on microbiome testing, Dr. Crawford shares her view that Injoy provides the most accurate and actionable gut microbiome test on the market. As she explains:

"Most microbiome tests out there are, frankly, useless. The Injoy test is different – it integrates microbiome data with dietary, lifestyle, and symptomatic information through Patient-Reported Outcomes (PROs), painting a complete picture of gut health."


What Sets Injoy Apart?

She goes on to highlight Injoy's longitudinal analysis, cutting-edge AI, and actionable recommendations as key differentiators: 

“1 – In-Depth Longitudinal Analysis:

  • They require three samples, not just a one-off snapshot (which invites uncertainty). This approach allows us to track changes over time, providing diagnostic-grade data even in a wellness test. They have published and patented this.
  • Their database isn’t just extensive; it’s specifically focused on people with validated GI issues (IBD/IBS). Meaning you are comparing yourself with a relevant dataset.

2 – Cutting-Edge AI, Gutchat:

  • The app’s health check-ins are based on validated questionnaires used in clinical practice, ensuring their relevance.
  • They’ve sifted through thousands and thousands of scientific papers, distilled them, and ensured they’re clinically sound. This allows users to ask their GutChat any gut health question and receive personalized responses from a credible source.

3 – Actionable Recommendations:

  • Because they capture more than just the microbiome, the reports can be shared with healthcare providers in a way no other report currently can. This enables patients to take action and practitioners to develop more personalized treatment plans.
  • Injoy’s recommendations are accompanied by a ‘confidence score,’ indicating the level of evidence from publicly available research articles that support each recommendation.”


The Bottom Line: Science-Backed Solutions

Dr. Crawford concludes:

"Bottom line: We all know the field of microbiome testing is full of overhyped promises. Injoy is not about that. They provide tools that work based on solid science."
