Functional testing is available to confirm or detect certain conditions. At Vita-Nutrition we offer laboratory analysis and specialist blood testing in order to achieve the best tailored nutritional plans. We have teamed up with a couple of laboratories that provide specialist testing.


Lorisian, has over 35 years’ experience, specialising in laboratory tests that measure food triggers (food-specific IgG antibodies).  Their results offer a fast track or starting point for an elimination diet.  The tests are aimed at those that may have food intolerances*, and those who want to optimise their diets by avoiding any foods that they are reacting to. The aim is to promote wellbeing within the pressures of a modern lifestyle. There are 3 testing options available with reactions to 75, 100 or 150 different food ingredients tested.

*Food intolerance is a condition with a range of symptoms including gut symptoms, bloating, headaches, migraines, low mood, fatigue, weight gain and skin problems. These symptoms must always be checked out by a Medical Professional. If you have clients that have seen a Medical Professional but have not been given a diagnosis for their symptoms then they may be suffering from food intolerance. www.lorisian.com
