🥝Food allergy🥝 ⠀⠀
⠀⠀🍋An allergy happens when the immune system, your body's defense against germs, has a reaction to a particular food. It can be mild, like an itchy feeling or hives. Sometimes you get severe symptoms -- called anaphylaxis -- like trouble breathing, a swollen tongue, or dizziness.
⠀⠀🍊Food intolerance means your body is missing an enzyme you need to digest some type of food. If you're lactose intolerant, for instance, you don't have enough lactase, an enzyme that lets you digest dairy products. If you're gluten intolerant, you can't process gluten, which is found in some grains including wheat, barley, and rye. ⠀⠀🌿What allergy, intolerance, and sensitivity do have in common is how you prevent them. Your best strategy: stay away! Avoid any food that's got the problem ingredient in it. #NeoElementum #Neo_vitamins #feelyourlife
