If you have allergies to any specific ingredient in Genesis Gold®, you may have symptoms. Most people do not have true food allergies but sensitivities. True allergies are mediated by immune globulins, called IgE, which cause major inflammatory response. For instance ingesting nuts in a IgE allergic individual can be fatal. That is why foods now contain warnings on their labels about nuts, since the tiniest trace on lips can cause anaphylaxis.
Immune globulins are your immune systems way to alert your white blood cells to possible invasion by undesirable elements. Besides IgE, there are IgM, IgA, & IgGs. IgM is your body’s first response to an infectious agent, while IgA is a sensitivity first line response. IgG is a longer acting immune globulin, marking past and chronic exposure. IgG sensitivities account for the majority of what we think are food allergies. An allergic reaction is not always noticed right away, sensitivity increases over time and over many exposures.
