Pinnertest is a food intolerance test used to detect which foods may be causing negative reactions with your body like unexplained bloating, migraines and more - all with just a few drops of blood dispensed by a basic finger prick.
Identify Your Food Intolerances
Eliminate Problem Foods From Your Diet
Optimize Your Nutrition
Food intolerance can occur when your body cannot properly digest and convert the foods you eat into the necessary nutrients that fuel your body. This maldigestion causes inflammation, which can lead to many negative food intolerance related symptoms including fatigue, migraine & headaches, eczema, bloating, gas, congestion, weight gain, brain fog, joint aches, acid reflux, food cravings, diarrhea, skin rash and more.
If you experience any of the symptoms above and cannot explain why, it's a possibility that you're suffering from an unidentified food intolerance.
Food intolerance can be caused by undigested foods, which start accumulating in the gut and begin making their way into the bloodstream.
Normally, the immune system recognizes most amino acids as friendly molecules. By contrast, partially digested food proteins are recognized as foreign intruders, which activates the immune system to combat these “invaders.” This is how the “war” begins.
The war between the immune system and partially digested proteins can lead to severe inflammation in the gut and other parts of the body.
Remember that when you have the flu, which also causes inflammation, you may experience a lot of discomfort including headaches, bloating, edema, fatigue, brain fog, stomach pains and more.
The reason for these discomforts is due to the fight between your immune system and the flu viruses.
The immune system response in a food intolerance reaction is similar to the inflammation seen in a viral or bacterial infection. Differently from the flu, however, food intolerance related symptoms can sometimes persist over a lifetime if neglected.
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 satisfied even when your stomach is not full.
When fighting a food intolerance, serotonin production (95% of which originates from the cells in our intestines) decreases dramatically, leading 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.
With the little amount of blood that Pinnertest requires, our test can be administered by yourself within the comfort of your own home.
While the results are easy to understand, you can also contact one of our consultants if you have any follow up questions.
