Optimise your nutrition with Lorisian

Just one or two elements of a fundamentally healthy diet could be causing negative impacts on a hockey player's health and game performance. With our expert food intolerance* testing, we can help your club to identify your player's specific trigger foods in order to help optimise their diet and boost team performance.

Why use food intolerance* testing?

Food intolerance* is estimated to affect up to 45% of the population. If your clients are suffering from any of these symptoms, food intolerance* could be the cause:

  • Digestive discomfort
  • Bloating
  • Weight management difficulties
  • Joint pain
  • Migraines
  • Tiredness or fatigue

These conditions can have a negative impact on fitness and, in turn, sports performance.

* Lorisian define food intolerance as a food-specific IgG reaction.

By identifying your trigger foods, you can optimise your diet and achieve your goals.

Teams Lorisian have worked with



Who are Lorisian?

Lorisian are Europe's leading providers of food intolerance* testing services. Alongside our parent company, YorkTest Laboratories, we have been providing food intolerance* testing since 1982.

We test for food-specific IgG antibodies in the blood, which indicate that a reaction has occurred to a particular food. The results from the test are then used to formulate a bespoke elimination diet.

* Lorisian define food intolerance as a food-specific IgG reaction.


Why test for food intolerances?

Food intolerances* have been implicated in conditions such as migraines, digestive problems, fatigue and joint pain.

Once a player is aware of the specific foods that are causing a reaction in their body, we can help them to safely remove these from their diet and optimise their nutrition. 

Through our laboratory testing, Lorisian have a track record of improving team performance



Former Sheffield Hallam National League Player

eliminates digestive symptoms after taking Lorisian test

For five years, National League Hockey Player Mike Shaw, put up with digestive problems and discomfort after eating.

Mike, who also competed in the 2014 Commonwealth Games, often lacked energy during games but dismissed this as the norm.

After hearing about Lorisian from a friend, Mike took the test and discovered that he was intolerant* to cow's milk, yeast and shellfish.

Once he had eliminated his problem foods from his diet, he noticed a major change.

"I have no symptoms now,' said Mike. 'and my nutritional knowledge has improved.'
