Test your intolerance with food sensitivity. Food sensitivity is your body’s response (IgG antibody reactions) to certain foods that occur hours to days after certain foods are consumed. These are also termed as delayed food reactions.
Your immune system produces two types of antibodies against certain foods:
Food Allergies are immediate reactions and can occur within minutes of consuming the reactive food.
This involves IgE antibodies and may cause
In certain rare cases, it may be life-threatening when it leads to anaphylaxis.
Vibrant is the only company that utilizes a chemiluminescent method of detecting food sensitivities on a silicon chip. While other labs use ELISA methods, the proprietary technology enables them to provide the highest sensitivity of detection.
All 96 tests are performed in a single reaction vessel enabling the best accuracy and precision.
Vibrant tests for IgG and IgA antibodies to food. IgA antibodies provide protection from mucosal damage. IgA reactivity to foods indicates mucosal damage. If IgG reactions are negative and you are still symptomatic, IgA reactivity helps provide solutions.
Once we receive your results, we can help you formulate a plan to rotate your diets and or eliminate the problem foods from your diet. Most people see improvement of symptoms within a few weeks of eliminating the reactive foods or after going on a rotation plan. However, it is important to understand that symptom improvement make take some time, and results vary from individual to individual. Removing reactive foods from the diet can sometimes result in withdrawal symptoms like headaches, tiredness, irritability and hunger.
Your intestinal lining. in a healthy state will provide immunity against exposure to food antigens.
Foods are not supposed to cross the intestinal barrier to enter your bloodstream.
However, inflammation in the gut lining caused due to
Inflammation can cause the food particles to break the barrier and enter the bloodstream where they cause an IgG antibody response
