SWAMI - Explanations for Avoid Rationales

The avoid foods in your SWAMI GenoType report are listed in your Chart Report with reasons why they should be avoided - knowing this allows you to make better choices about the foods you eat and avoid.

Anti-Lipidomic: disrupts the lipid delivery of nutrient into your cells making it harder for essential fats to pass into the cells for rebuilding healthy cells

Anti-Metabolite: disrupts regular metabolism, slows down your overall metabolism and the presence of antimetabolites can have a toxic effect on cells and can halt cell division and cell growth

Anti-Metabolomic: Intracellular Toxin/ Ubiquitylation disruption, the same effect as Anti-Metabolite

Anti-Secretory: Inhibits or decreases secretion, such as gastric digestive secretion

Calories: High in Calories

Calorie content: 2743 / 2625.66: High in Calories, values of the caloric differences

Carbohydrate difference values: 76 / 61.78: A high Carbohydrate ratio

Chitinase allergens: Chitin = a fibrous substance that can require lengthy fermentation to break down foods, and create digestive problems. It can cause an allergic reaction in the gut and can interfere with proper digestive and immune function

Cholesterol: 479 / 125: High in Cholesterol, values of Cholesterol differences

Epigenotoxin: a toxin to your GenoType. This toxin causes problems with the way the enzymes in your body produced by your genes cope with the foods you are eating, and limits your body's ability to react and respond to the nutrients in your food in a healthy way

Fructose: 48 / 15.72: High in the sugar Fructose, values of fructose differences

Genetically Modified: Also known as GMO's. Unless of organic origin, these foods are likely to have been genetically altered from their natural state to cause them to grow faster, be pest or pesticide resistant, or have inhibitors towards mold or other issues that typically plague the natural plant. The problems arise in the fact that you body cannot process these completely, or they contain high residues of pesticides. Studies have shown that animals and insects will not eat many of these man-made hybrids. You can bypass this avoid rationale by buying organic versions of the food if that is the only rationale causing these foods to be in the avoid category

Gluten, Gliandin or Prolamine: these are all proteins found in wheat, barley, spelt, rye and oat products - all of which can be related to problems with gluten

Glycotoxin: these byproducts cause advanced ageing (AGEs) in the cells of the body, as they are formed by a sugar attaching to a protein and cause inflammation. AGEs have been linked to diabetes, cardiovascular disease and renal disease

Glycotoxin Toxin / Tissue Glycation Disruption: As for Glycotoxin, known to cause disruption to tissues as well as individual cells

Hemagglutinating Lectin: A protein in certain foods that sticks to specific sugars, cause red blood cells to glue or stack together, and stick to the stomach lining, large and small intestines microvilli (small "fingers" projecting in from the intestinal lining that increase the surface area for contact with digested food, to absorb vital nutrients into your body). With the microvilli affected by these lectins they cannot do their job properly, and the body's immune response can lead to damage and rupture of the microvilli causing digestive discomfort and requiring rebuilding of the intestinal lining. The body has to repair this damage before it is able to function normally to absorb nutrients effectively

High Glycemic Index: Foods that cause a fast increase in blood sugar and insulin levels. When your blood is flooded with sugars your body has an overabundance of immediately available energy, the sugars cause glycation of red blood cells, reducing their functional oxygen-carrying capacity, and any sugar not used immediately for energy is stored as fat

High Total Lipid: 100 / 66.91: High fat content, values of fat differences

Immunotoxin: a food that is damaging to the immune system

Maltose: 48 / 0.63: High in the malt sugar, Maltose, values of Maltose differences

Metabolotoxin: A toxin that disrupts the function of organs in the body in the ability to metabolize and maintain a good metabolism

Opposing blood group amino sugar: The sugar found in this food is identical to that found in a different blood group incompatible with your own. This is similar to the body's response to the wrong blood type being used in a blood transfusion: your body creates an immune response to this food, since it looks like an "enemy" to the body. This food could confuse your immune system and cause chaos in your digestive tract and elsewhere

Pesticide Residue: High in pesticides. Can be avoided by buying organic, and in some cases by washing and peeling your food (if it is fruit or vegetables), if that is the only rationale causing these foods to be in the avoid category

Physician Restricted Component: Your physician has manually selected this food to be deemphasised in or eliminated from your diet

Reactive Polysaccharide: A carbohydrate, starch or fibre that cannot be digested properly by people with your blood type/genotype, leading to an immune reaction

Serotoxin: A food that causes toxicity in the blood

Serum Flocculating Glycoprotein: A glycoprotein is a molecule in food made of a combination of protein and sugar, which causes proteins to clump together in your blood. Flocculation is a precipitin reaction. Precipitins mostly lead to immune complexes, combinations of antigen (mostly but not always blood group antigens) and antibody. In addition to being deposited in the tissues, immune complexes typically activate complement, a series of corrosive enzymes that are used by the immune system to eliminate pathogens

Sodium: High in Sodium or salt

Sodium: 1587 / 1000.66: High in Sodium, values of Sodium differences

Starch: 23.49 / 11.86: High in Starch, values of Starch differences

Ubiquitylation disruption: Disrupts the ability of cells to divide and grow
