CLAIM VICTORY OVER YOUR GUT HEALTH ISSUES ONCE AND FOR ALL.
The foods you eat are trying to tell you something.
Victus88 will tell you what they’re saying.
Do you battle with chronic intestinal and extraintestinal symptoms that remain undiagnosed or incorrectly treated? You’re not alone. Studies show that nearly 20% of U.S. adults believe they have sensitivities to certain foods. And that number is on the rise.
The good news is that the simple act of identifying and eliminating the offending foods is highly effective in treating these symptoms.
Overt IgE-mediated food allergies can lead to hives, digestive issues, or anaphylaxis, while delayed food sensitivities (IgG + IgG4) are linked to sinus problems, acne, gas, bloating, fatigue, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, and depression.
the most accurate and comprehensive
at-home food sensitivity test available.
4 biomarkers. 88 foods. 1 simple finger stick.
Victus88 Dietary Antigen Test is the proprietary at-home food allergy/sensitivity test that combines IgE, IgG, IgG4, and complement (C3d) reactions to 88 different foods. All with a painless stick of your finger.
Collecting your blood sample doesn’t have to be painful.
Unlike traditional finger stick devices that use cards or paper to collect a small sample for only one marker, Victus88 uses a patented VAMS® micro-sampling clamshell technology with four sponge-like pipette tips to easily and painlessly extract the exact amount of blood needed to run all 352 individual tests on the Victus88 report.
Best of all, one finger stick is all it takes.
By eliminating the barriers of traditional blood draws, Victus88 ensures a simple and painless sample collection process for everyone.
There are many roads to gut health success. Consider this your personalized map.
Victus88’s comprehensive, interpretive report gives you easy-to-read results that classify each food into one of three reaction category levels – low, moderate, and high.
It includes “more restrictive” and “less restrictive” elimination diets, as well as a cross-reaction analysis of immune reactions by food group.
With Victus88, you and your healthcare provider will have the data you need to better treat your chronic symptoms and help you start feeling your best.
Five Reasons to Choose the Victus88 Dietary Antigen Test
The only test that measures 4 immune reactions (+C3d complement) to 88 different dietary antigens. Most tests measure only one way the immune system reacts to food.
The only test that tells you if you have developed immune tolerance to lgE. Most tests only show allergic reactions, not when you have adapted to the antigen.
The only test that shows you groups of other possible compounds that are irritating – such as high histamine, oxalate, FOD-MAP, and amine foods.
The only test that totals all your reactions and then ranks each food from high to low in an easy-to-interpret patient-and-provider-friendly report.
The only test that provides multiple elimination diet choices so you and your doctor can match your needs from more symptomatic to less symptomatic.
frequently asked questions
Why is VICTUS88 better than other food sensitivity tests?
Victus88 Dietary Antigen Test is a highly comprehensive test of immune reactions, combining IgE, IgG, IgG4 and complement (C3d) reactions to 88 of the most common foods found in the diet. It is the first test on the market to measure and report immune complexes containing C3d, which is well-defined in research as one of the strongest causes of inflammation. It is also the most comprehensive direct-to-consumer at-home food sensitivity test to utilize a convenient at-home finger stick self-collection device.
- Other food sensitivity tests may have a weak scientific basis, or they may not give the full picture of food reactions.
- Some tests use live cell analysis, which is not a scientifically accepted sign of true food sensitivity or allergic reaction.
- Other antibody assays may measure total IgE antibodies only; they could miss food reactions that activate the inflammatory complement cascade.
- Still, other tests may measure only a specific IgG subclass and miss out on information about IgG1, IgG2, IgG3, and IgG4, which is reported as total IgG in the Victus88 Dietary Antigen Test.

Should I reintroduce trigger foods I have eliminated prior to testing/retesting?
While there is no hard and fast rule, a small reintroduction of food removed, especially the ones you are most concerned about should be reintroduced sometime between one-to-three days before your test, to see if antibodies will be provoked by the food. This is because antibodies will decrease and disappear from lack of exposure.
We highly recommend speaking with your physician before making any changes to your diet before or after taking this test.
