Why You Probably Need a FIT 176 Food Sensitivity Test:

Did you know that more than half of adults have a food sensitivity? And unfortunately, most do not know it. If you’ve never had a food sensitivity test and frequently struggle with symptoms like bloating, gas, and fatigue, a FIT 176 Food Sensitivity Test may be in your best interest.

Food sensitivities 101:

Food sensitivities and allergies affect at least 100 million people worldwide, causing a variety of symptoms ranging from headaches to skin rashes to chronic intestinal diseases. Furthermore, because food sensitivities are typically delayed, occurring up to 72 hours after ingestion, it can be difficult to determine which food is causing your reaction.

Food sensitivities are slightly different from food allergies and intolerances in several key ways. Firstly, food sensitivities trigger an immune response that is much slower than an allergy. Second, food sensitivities are often caused by some sort of imbalance within the gut. Thirdly, food sensitivities result from when your body can't properly break the food down. However, just because food sensitivities typically do not result in a reaction as extreme as an allergy, they are not to be taken any less seriously.

Food sensitivities can often cause unexpected symptoms. So, if you have a history of any of the following symptoms, getting a food sensitivity test may be in your best interest:

  • Itching

  • Diarrhea

  • Vomiting

  • Breathing difficulties

  • Swelling

  • Abdominal pain

  • Hives

  • Migraines

  • Brain fog

  • Bloating

  • Gas

  • Fatigue

  • Dizziness

  • Acne

The FIT 176 Test:

The FIT 176 Test is one of the most thorough and accurate food sensitivity tests available. The patented multi-pathway delayed food sensitivity test uses innovative technology to measure two of the most common food-related pathways in your body. The FIT 176 Test also analyses the gut through the Gut Barrier Panel, which will indicate if the user has a leaky gut or other food sensitivities.

The FIT 176 Test will analyze your sample for 176 different kinds of foods, including all major food groups, such as:

  • Dairy

  • Grains

  • Fruits

  • Additives

  • Vegetables

  • Microbes

  • Beans

  • Spices

  • Fish

  • Meats

  • Extracts and miscellaneous

  • Seeds

  • Shellfish

  • Nuts

FIT 176 is especially accurate because it detects antibodies that are frequently overlooked by standard food sensitivity testing.
