Easy to use test for the detection of food and additive intolerances in the blood through leuco-cytotoxic testing on human blood.
Adults who wish to ascertain the presence of intolerances to certain foods.
WHY SHOULD I PERFORM THE TEST?
Food intolerance (FI) is often recognized as the main cause of a whole series of disorders. When some food intolerance is ongoing, your body cannot completely digest some foods. These are only broken down to become macromolecules, which cannot be used neither for energy production nor for cell growth. Over time, the macromolecules produced tend to accumulate in your intestine, giving rise to different processes of inflammation. The intestine interrupts its "filtering" function and inflammations tend to spread to other organs, thus compromising their efficiency. A slow and gradual intoxication occurs, which results in different symptoms: digestive diseases, gastritis, fluid retention, fatigue, headache, skin conditions, myalgia and articular pain, weight gain or loss.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The blood sample: Prick your fingertip using a lancing device (sterile and monouse) and deposit a generous drop within the circle on the card, but without pressing the fingertip against the membrane. The blood sample must cover the whole absorbing membrane!
Fill the form included with the kit in every part and sign it.
Put both the test card and the form into the pre-printed envelope that came with the kit.
Mail it within the same day. Promptly contact PRIMA Lab SA at the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you sent the sample.
The laboratory, once the sample is received, proceeds to the analysis of neutrophil granulocytes' modification when exposed to highly purified food extracts, determining eventual food intolerances and their degrees (low, medium , high).
Based on the results, the laboratory draws up a report containing your test results, along with nutritional advices. This document is sent to the e-mail address indicated on the customer information form sent along with the sample.
