Their range of Food Intolerance TestsAllergy Tests and health tests are designed to empower you to better understand, take control and optimise your health and wellbeing.

When food particles enter the bloodstream, your immune system can sometimes identify these food proteins as ‘foreign’ and produces IgG antibodies to ‘attack’ the particular food in question. This response is your immune system’s natural defence mechanism to ward off harmful invaders in the body which can create inflammation.

This inflammation can then trigger troublesome symptoms, which may persist if they are neglected.
