About Our Alfalfa Allergy Test
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
Our IgE antibody allergy test uses a blood prick to determine if you're allergic to Alfalfa
Alfalfa is a perennial, flowering plant that's easy to grow and thrives in various climates. It's high in vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, and vitamin K. It also contains amino acids, calcium, carotene, chlorophyll, fiber, iron, potassium, and zinc.
Alfalfa is typically seen in many salad bars, but it's also sold in bulk powder and capsules.
Medicinally, alfalfa has been used to assist with kidney, bladder, liver, and prostate conditions. Because of the vitamins it contains, it's a natural way to combat these ailments as well as others, including high cholesterol, asthma, diabetes, arthritis, and even upset stomachs. In addition to the diseases it helps fight, it can also reduce the symptoms of seasonal allergies. Some claim that alfalfa acts as a natural antihistamine and suppresses the immune response to certain seasonal allergies and symptoms of hay fever, but these claims have not been studied extensively.
Regardless of its medicinal uses, alfalfa can still elicit an allergic reaction in some. Sensitivities to the plant are not common, but if you're allergic to other plant foods, you should consume alfalfa cautiously. Allergic reactions to the plant could vary from eyes and lungs to gastrointestinal distress.
Additionally, alfalfa has a high potential for contamination with bacteria, including E. Coli. If you notice yourself getting sick from alfalfa and believe it to be an allergy, consider this option as well.
Traditional allergy tests utilize the Skin Prick method (also known as a Puncture or Scratch test) to determine whether an allergic reaction will occur by inserting possible triggers into your skin using a needle prick. If you are allergic to the substance, you are forced to suffer through your body's reaction to the allergen. HealthLabs.com offers an easier, virtually pain-free blood test to determine the allergen status of substances without the irritation of traditional skin prick tests.
- No painful skin pricks
- No fasting necessary
- Accurate results within 1 to 3 days.
