Micronutrient Testing

Assess Your Nutritional Deficiencies…and Sufficiencies

Because you eat a healthy diet doesn’t ensure that the nutrients get to where they need to be in your body… in the active form…and in the ideal amounts.

In addition, we each have unique requirements — based on our genetics, our absorption capability and metabolism. And our needs change over time according to our health (and disease), prescriptions and aging.

Nutritional balance plays a key role in optimal wellness, chronic disease prevention and aging.

Aside from the nutrients we are able to manufacture, we get nutrients from the foods we eat and from the supplements we take.

But, how do you know if you are taking the right supplements? Are you taking too many or too little?

It’s important for your health to make wise nutritional choices based on scientific facts and not just educated guesses.

Typically, the lab work you get in the doctor’s office checks the levels in red blood cells or serum/plasma. But just because the nutrients are in your bloodstream doesn’t mean they are making their way in an active/usable form into your tissues.

SpectraCell Micronutrient Testing measures active nutrient levels in your body that are ready to use. It is a more accurate way of measuring your nutritional status.

Be Proactive with keeping your Nutrient Levels Optimal

The body has amazing capacities to cope. Early symptoms or disease often don’t appear until there’s already a nutritional deficiency. What’s going on can be subtle…for example, vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to affect the function of your immune system which then in turn can contribute to degenerative and chronic conditions. Being proactive is the best way to support health and well-being.

Similarly, if you are taking a nutrition supplement, it’s important to monitor and adjust the supplement intake as your body responds to it. Is it working? Is it too much? What nutrients are you missing? Should you be taking complementary nutrients?

How the Spectracell Micronutrient Test Works — Vitamins, Minerals, Amino Acids and Antioxidants

SpectraCell’s Micronutrient tests measure the function of dozens of nutritional components including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids within our white blood cells.  Scientific evidence shows us that analyzing the white blood cells gives us the most accurate analysis of a body’s deficiencies.
