FoodMarble Aire 2: Seeing how food, stress and sleep impacts the gut

Review: New version also measures methane, which can cause digestive discomfort

FoodMarble Aire 2

Remember the FoodMarble Aire? The device was designed to measure the levels of hydrogen produced in your gut to help pinpoint what foods are causing you digestive discomfort. Now the company is bringing out a second version, the Aire 2, which also measures methane. That gas that is produced by two-thirds of people and can also cause digestive discomfort when it builds up rapidly.

Using the Aire 2 and accompanying app, people will be able to take regular readings and see how the food they consume, stress and sleep is impacting their gut, and presumably make the appropriate changes.
