An allergy is a sensitivity to some particular substance known as an allergen. The allergen may be harmless to some people but can cause a reaction in others. Almost any food may be an allergen to some people due to lack of nutrients. The allergic reaction may be hay fever, asthma, hives, high blood pressure, abnormal fatigue, constipation, stomach ulcers, dizziness, headache, mental disorders, hyperactivity, or hypoglycemia. After eating, excessive tiredness, swelled stomach, palpiations, sweating or mental fuzziness may be experienced.

Cholesterol is a fatty substance manufactured by the liver. It is found only in animal fat; it is not contained in vegetable fat. By consuming ITAL one’s cholesterol level must be normal.
Cholesterol is needed to form sex and adrenal hormones, vitamin D, and bile salts. It also has a vital function in the brain and nerves.
It is known that when cholesterol levels in the blood become abnormally high, fatty deposits composed of cholesterol and calcium tend to accumulate the arteries, including those of the heart, increasing the susceptibility to heart attacks. Cholesterol deposits occur mostly in parts of the blood vessels which have been weakened by high blood pressure or undue strain. Cholesterol in the blood must be kept in solution to prevent deposits from forming; lecithin seems to help the bile to do this. Lecithin is contained in many oil producing plants. Adequate supplies of unsaturated fatty acids (vitamin F, especially linoleic acid) and vitamin E seem to help control the cholesterol level of the blood and prevent artherosclerosis.
Many factors besides saturated fat effect the cholesterol level of the blood, including stress, anxiety, cigarette smoking, overeating, lack of exercise, and high consumption of refined carbohydrates. Choline, vitamin B12, biotin, lecithin, pangamic acid are lipotropic substances, substances that must be present to prevent accumulation of fat in liver. Since the liver regulates cholesterol, these vitamins, may be essential. Deficiencies of magnesium, potassium, manganese, zinc, vanadium, chronuim, or selenium, of of vitamins C,E, niacin, folic acid, or B6 may also be significant.
Several studies have confirmed that fact that pectin can limit the amount of cholesterol the body absorbs, thereby controlling the levels of cholesterol accumulation in the bloodstream. Pectin is found in many fruits and berries, notably apples.
