Gluten intolerance is not as straightforward as it may seem. Traditional blood tests for gluten sensitivities only look at one component of gluten (alpha gliadin) to determine sensitivity, but not everyone reacts negatively to alpha gliadin. Array 3x identifies 12 different components of wheat that can promote inflammation and immune dysregulation.
This test panel also looks for the potential for gluten to cause addictive behaviours and cognitive symptoms. Specific enzymes in the gut break gluten down into gliadorphins (gluteomorphins), opioid peptides that play a role in neurological disorders.
