Food intolerance is the inability to eat a food without an adverse effect. A food intolerance response takes place in the digestive tract and occurs because your body is unable to break down the substance properly. This can be due to an enzyme deficiency, sensitivity to a food additive or a reaction to a naturally occurring substance. A reaction to a food, beverage, food additive or compound found in foods is often delayed and difficult to diagnose but can cause chronic discomfort.
Symptoms of food intolerance include:
Gas or bloating
Headaches or migraines
Heart burn or acid reflux
The experts at the Anti-Aging and Wellness Clinic can help you identify if you suffer from a food intolerance.
Common food intolerances include:
Lactose- a sugar found in milk and milk products
Amines- a chemical found in some fruits, vegetables, wine, chocolate and cheese
Sulfites-preservatives used in drinks such as wine and dried fruit
Salicylates-a compound found in some herbs, spices, fruits and vegetables
Glutamates-found in some cheeses, tomatoes, soy sauce and mushrooms
Gluten- a substance found in cereal grains, especially wheat
