Supply Life helped me say goodbye to energy dips for good, and here’s how.
It’s crazy that so many of us are unwittingly living our day-to-day lives with food intolerances we don’t even know we have.
I mean, think about it, you could have made it into your 20s, 30s, or even beyond eating food that is having a negative effect on your body.
I know some of you will be reading this in denial, as I was, adamant that you’re fine just because you don’t have to rush to the loo every five minutes after eating a slice of cheese.
But IBS is just the tip of the iceberg. Energy dips, unwanted weight gain, migraines, and joint pain can all be symptoms of food intolerance.
I’d be willing to wager there are a few of you who have had suspicions about intolerance for some time, but getting it checked out always seems to fall to the bottom of your ‘to-do’ list.
Well, no more. Supply Life has created an easy-to-use test kit that can be done from the comfort of your own home.
It’s rated the best in the UK and has gained support from doctors, Premier League football clubs, and professional boxers alike.
Naturally, I wanted to see what all the fuss was about, so I had to try it for myself.
It’s also worth mentioning that I used Gymfluencer’s very own discount code GYM10 and got 10% off.
About The Brand
Before we go any further, I always like to introduce people to the brand and, in particular, the brain behind it. Supply life was founded by Ricky Singh, who was a long-term sufferer of IBS.
Fed up of being bogged down by the food he was eating, Ricky finally decided he had to do something about the gut problems that were wrecking his life.
He embarked on a course of study and discovered that the answer to his IBS was to avoid the foods that upset his metabolism and eat only the foods that he could digest with ease.
Having solved his own issues, he then decided to help others do the same, and Supply Life was born. Since then the brand has gone from strength to strength.
In 2018 alone Supply Life conducted 350,000 tests finding a total 4.2m food intolerances. That’s a staggering average of 12 intolerances per person.
How Does The Test Work?
Once you’ve ordered your test and selected your plan you’ll swiftly receive the kit to your door. All you need to do is take a tiny blood sample and return it to the lab, where Supply Life’s experts will test your antibodies against up to 209 popular foods.
Don’t worry, it doesn’t hurt, and a step-by-step guide plus a sanitary wipe is included in the kit to make sure the process is smooth and safe.
Unlike other brands which use hair or saliva samples, Supply Life’s is done via ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay).
This is a plate-based assay technique designed for detecting and quantifying soluble substances such as peptides, proteins, antibodies, and hormones.
By using this method Supply Life can provide much more in-depth information about how your body actually recognises different foods.
You’ll receive your results within 7 days and, depending on the plan you’ve selected, you’ll also benefit from a follow-up call with a qualified nutritionist, a tailored meal plan, 30-day ongoing support, and guidebooks.
It’s at this point that you’ll be armed with all the information you need to adapt your diet and start living life free from food-related discomfort.
Most people start seeing positive changes within one to two days of eliminating foods that they should avoid. In my case, it took around a week.
Once I ditched wheat-based products such as bread, cereal, and even some condiments my natural energy levels began to rocket, and I no longer experienced slumps after eating meals.
If you’d like to find out whether your diet is holding you back then head over to Supply Life’s website and order your home testing kit.
