The Skin Care Bundle contains the following tests:
Vitamin D Test

- Improves inflammatory skin diseases

Vitamin D is often referred to as the “super vitamin." It completely lives up to its reputation as it participates in more than 200 bodily functions and is also vital for the skin. Vitamin D influences the sebaceous glands. It removes excess sebum that makes the skin look unclean, oily and unhealthy. Studies indicate that vitamin D protects the skin from radiation. Researchers have confirmed that less DNA gets destroyed and cell death is reduced. Furthermore, the super vitamin demonstrates a protective effect against various cancer types such as skin cancer. Vitamin D also increases wound healing. The super vitamin supports the body’s own repair mechanisms and reduces inflammatory processes. In summary, vitamin D plays an important role in skin health and beauty.
With the cerascreen Vitamin D Test you can easily check your present vitamin D status. It analyses the storage form of vitamin D (25-hydroxy-cholecalciferol or vitamin D3). The value indicates whether there is a deficiency or it is likely to develop in the near future. Thus, this value has high significance with regard to your vitamin D supply.
Food Intolerance Test
Undiagnosed food allergies and intolerances can affect the skin’s health:
- Dry skin
- Itchy skin
Up to 80% of allergies are associated with skin disorders. The main one is atopic dermatitis, also referred to as neurodermatitis. It is a chronic skin disorder characterized by itching and dry patches of skin, especially at the back of the knees and inside the elbows. Apart from neurodermatitis, nettlerash as well as swelling and reddening of the skin can appear. Studies have shown that food allergies are responsible for 90% of the cases of atopic dermatitis. The cerascreen® Food Intolerance Test analyses your blood for 95% of the most common triggers for allergies and intolerances in Europe. By checking the immunoglobulines IgE and igG4, you will get a comprehensive overview of both food allergies and intolerances. Immunoglobulines are specific antibodies produced by the body in case of an allergy or intolerance.
Histamine Intolerance Test
An elevated histamine level can cause various skin disorders:
- Wheal building
- Reddening of the skin
In order to maintain your skin’s beauty, health and youthful appearance, you have to care for it properly, inside and out. Vitamin D works in different ways on the skin. Both skin tightening and an even complexion can be achieved by vitamin D. For an optimal effect, vitamin D must not be affected by immune reactions. Food allergies and intolerances as well as histamine intolerance put strain on the gastrointestinal tract and cause various symptoms including impaired skin health.
Histamine intolerance can also be associated with negative skin changes. In case of this intolerance, there is an imbalance between the levels of histamine and the enzyme diamine oxidase (DAO) which breaks down histamine. The result is an elevated histamine level which can lead to various symptoms. The main one is atopic dermatitis, also referred to as neurodermatitis. Studies show that patients with this disorder often have a too low DAO blood concentration. The symptoms can be alleviated by a low-histamine diet.
Further disorders it can cause are wheal building, reddening of the skin and itching.
The cerascreen® Histamine Intolerance Test helps you find out possible causes for acne or itchy skin. The test analyses the concentration of the enzyme DAO, which breaks down histamine. Additionally you receive a comprehensive result report containing valuable health tips around the topics of histamine and low-histamine diets.
