Why Do Our Customers Love 5Strands?
“Extremely extensive testing.
There were some things I knew that would be on there and some were a shock.
Service was quick and the instructions to decipher everything was perfect.
100% satisfied and am considering purchasing other test kits.
I have already recommended 5Strands to all my friends and family!”
“My Frenchie has had tummy issues his whole life (he’s 2). Finally with this test we narrowed down the foods he’s been reacting to (everything he was eating! ). Finally we found a food that doesn’t include all the food that are irritating to his stomach and he’s been happier and more energetic!! Amazing!!! Thank you 5Strands!!! ❤️”
" I will be the first to say I was skeptical when buying this test.
I was unsure about the hair sample but did it anyways.
After 4 years of GI .... I can say I feel so much more better and more in tune with my body."
“ If you are reading this. It is a sign you should buy this :) I am a penny pincher.
However, I splurged on myself and bought the Deluxe Package! I spoke with 5Strands and got amazing guidance on using these results.”
“My cat has been itchy for years. I could never see anything on her and just assumed it was mites. My vet initiated the idea that it was possibly an allergy, and I am so happy I discovered 5Strands as I realized a lot of the food I had been feeding her she is severely allergic to. It has only been about a week so far but with diet modifications I am already (and finally !) noticing a difference. Thank you so much ☺️”
“My dogs stomach wad hard as rock and he was very bloated looking for years! I had always given him carrots as treats. Found he is level 3 allergic to carrots! It’s been a few weeks since stopping with the foods he’s allergic to and he is normal sized already, and he has so much more energy. So happy I did this for my little buddy! Getting one for my other dog next.”
