Much of our lives depends on nutrition, and more than we are often aware of. When it comes to our livelihoods, it is not for nothing that we say that you have to "earn your bread". All of us spend a lot of money and time buying and preparing food. And in order to reward ourselves or make others happy, we often treat ourselves to delicacies or invite others to dinner.
Nevertheless, nutrition does not always get the treatment it deserves. We often snack on what happens to be there or what we like most of all, not infrequently because it may be full of sugar or fats. The consequence: Many people eat unhealthily, become overweight or suffer from food allergies and intolerances without even knowing it.
The right diet for you
We cannot provide you with a universal secret recipe for proper nutrition - it simply does not exist. Diet is always something personal. Everyone can tolerate other foods, just as everyone has their own tastes.
Even foods that are healthy in themselves are not necessarily good for you. For many of us, certain types of fruit and vegetables trigger food allergies and intolerances. This can then be associated with acute symptoms or long-term effects on health. Typical symptoms of eating things you cannot tolerate include abdominal pain, diarrhoea, rashes and tiredness. And even if you want to lose weight, allergies and intolerances can also stand in the way.
Some people also have problems with their blood sugar levels. Blood sugar levels are significantly influenced by what we eat – and proper nutrition can even help prevent diabetes. A precondition for this is that you should know your blood sugar levels.
cerascreen tests for proper nutrition
It is not easy to find out during your everyday life the diet that is good for you and the one that is not. But cerascreen® self-tests can help with this. Among other things, the tests will allow you to get to the bottom of any food allergies or intolerances, to check for any intolerance to gluten, fructose, sorbitol or histamine, and to measure your long-term blood glucose (HbA1c).
To do this, simply use a test kit to take a small blood or breath sample (depending on the test) and send it to our specialist laboratory. You will then receive a detailed results report shortly afterwards. This will tell you the range within which your levels lie, or whether you may have the allergy or intolerance that has been tested. You'll also get advice that will help you better understand what you can and cannot tolerate and tips for proper nutrition.
