A peer-reviewed study, performed at Cell Science Systems, Corp., has reported that simple blood tests can determine micronutrients and antioxidants that boost immunity and protect the body’s cells.

The study highlights new research on how food sensitivities, as well as nutrient deficiencies, may play a vital role in keeping people healthy. Further, it reports that people with more food sensitivities and an unhealthy diet and lifestyle have more nutrient deficiencies and are less able to resist oxidative stress.

The paper entitled “A randomized observational analysis examining the correlation between patients’ food sensitivities, micronutrient deficiencies, oxidative stress response and immune redox status” appears in the current issue of the journal Functional Foods in Health and Disease.

One of the biggest detriments to health is inflammation, which drives metabolic syndrome; including overweight, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Other conditions linked to food sensitivity include asthma, rhinitis, migraine, eczema, IBS and arthritis.
