What is the purpose of this test?

The 30 Food Additives, Colorings, & Preservatives Panel is a comprehensive diagnostic test designed to identify if an individual's body is intolerant or sensitive to any of the 30 common additives, colorings, and preservatives found in food. These additives, although approved by the FDA, can trigger adverse reactions in some people, leading to a range of symptoms such as digestive issues, skin rashes, headaches, and other discomforts. The test works by analyzing the individual's blood cells' reactions to different additives, colorings, and preservatives using advanced technology. Once the test results are available, a personalized nutrition plan can be created, which eliminates the problematic additives and replaces them with healthier alternatives. This approach helps the individual maintain a healthy, balanced diet while avoiding discomfort and improving their overall health and well-being.
