Elite Performance

Allergy testing to improve and help support elite performance

Go your extra mile with Lifelab Testing

Lifelab Testing is making waves in the health and nutrition industry, as the company looks to give a sporting edge to those who need it, allowing them to excel at an elite level.

Providing clients with the extra 1% they need to enhance their performance, Lifelab works with sports professionals to identify their allergies and intolerances. Helping them to run that little bit further, concentrate that little bit harder, and ultimately improve their results.

Intolerance and allergy testing are proven to help others discover their extra mile, as they eliminate offending foods from their diet and feel an improvement in both their health and sporting performance.

Why should you test for intolerances and allergies using blood?

Blood analysis is a vital tool for observing and monitoring the health of the human body. At Lifelab, the intolerance and allergy testing we carry out are specifically for immune-mediated reactions.

Furthermore, allergies and intolerances are a lot more prevalent than you think, and the difference between them is not always understood. Make sure your intolerances and allergies are not holding back your elite performance by 1%. And when it comes to sports, 1% can be the difference between 1st and last place.

How does Intolerance Allergy Testing work?

Lifelab tests enable sports professionals to work smart, work hard and teach others about how beneficial nutrition can be in sport. Within football already, Lifelab has worked with first-team squads to help them identify their intolerances and allergies, as well as on the creation of nutritional plans. By collecting your blood and analysing it, intolerance and allergy testing can contribute to increased stamina and performance.

Symptoms of Allergies and Intolerances

Many sports professionals are unaware that food allergies and intolerances can have an effect on their performance. Symptoms of an allergy can include inflammation, lethargy, brain fog, cramps and even more shockingly, reduced recovery rate from injury. With the fine margins involved in sports, being aware of allergies and intolerances can help give you the edge over your opposition.

Performance Improvement

Identifying and then eliminating a hidden food allergy or food intolerance item is key to improving an athlete’s performance levels. Imagine what you could with a further 1% improvement in your team, from each individual? Here are a few we’ve helped to excel in their respective industry thanks to Lifelab Testing.
