What is food intolerance (aka food sensitivity)?

Do you ever feel like certain foods are causing you discomfort, bloating, migraines and other negative symptoms but cannot pinpoint which foods are to blame?

Food intolerance occurs when your body cannot properly digest and convert the foods you eat into the necessary nutrients that fuel your system.

More simply, food intolerance occurs when you eat something but it fails to be properly broken down in the intestines. The main reason for this failure (maldigestion) is due to a lack of digestive enzymes – it’s their job to break down food molecules so that they can be properly absorbed into the bloodstream.

When the body doesn’t produce enough (or any) of an enzyme that a food requires for proper digestion, the proteins cannot convert into amino acids or nutrients, and will start accumulating in the gut and eventually make their way into the bloodstream improperly.

 

How does FOOD INTOLERANCE TESTING work?

Food intolerance testing has not always been as accurate as it is today. In the past, techniques used to determine food intolerances were often seen as unreliable. Luckily, however, testing methods have improved dramatically over the last 20 years.

Fitnescity's Pinnertest test, for instance, employs advanced microarray scanning technology that thoroughly measures IgG antibody levels against the proteins of over 200 different foods.

This progressive technique can identify food intolerances with just a few drops of blood dispensed by a basic finger prick.

Thanks to all of these advancements, the days of trial and error diets and false positive reporting are over, leaving clients with the peace of mind they deserve when it comes to their diets.

 

WHy Should I test for food intolerance?

The immune system identifies these partially digested proteins as foreign intruders and attacks them. This attack can trigger inflammation in the gut – the immune system’s natural response to injuries and other harmful things that enter the body.

Just like when you have the flu, which also causes inflammation, the body’s fight against the imperfectly digested food will cause many negative symptoms including fatigue, migraines, eczema, bloating, gas, congestion, weight gain, brain fog, joint pain, acid reflux, food cravings, diarrhea, skin rash and more.

Differently from the flu, however, these symptoms may persist over a lifetime if you continue to consume foods that your body is intolerant to.

 

what is THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FOOD INTOLERANCE AND A FOOD ALLERGy?

A food intolerance and a food allergy can sometimes have similar symptoms, but the way they react with your body is very different.

The main difference between an intolerance and an allergy is that an allergy will manifest itself almost immediately after inhalation or consumption of a particular substance. Food intolerances, on the other hand, are more deceptive. Depending on the individual, symptoms might arrive anywhere between a couple hours to a couple days.

Note: Food allergy tests measure IgE antibodies and can't be currently taken at home.

 

WHAT IS LEAKY GUT SYNDROME?

While a lot of research on Leaky Gut Syndrome is still ongoing, it essentially refers to increased intestinal permeability.

This can happen when tight junctions in the gut, which control what passes through the lining of the small intestine, don’t work properly and could leak substances into the bloodstream.

Sufferers of food sensitivities may also suffer from Leaky Gut Syndrome.

 

CAN FOOD INTOLERANCE LEAD to WEIGHT GAIN?

One of the more common side effects of food intolerance is weight gain. This is mainly due to depleted levels of serotonin, the powerful chemical responsible for maintaining mood balance, social behavior, libido, memory, and digestive health.

More importantly, though, serotonin acts as the natural appetite suppressant in the body, making you feel satis ed even when your stomach is not full.

When fighting a food intolerance, serotonin production (95% of which originates from the cells in the intestines) decreases dramatically. This can lead to intense carb and sugar cravings.

This process can send your body into a vicious cycle of mood swings, depression and unwanted cravings, all stemming from the fight against food intolerance.
