Are you getting the nutrients your body needs?
When you are deficient in vitamins, minerals or antioxidants, your immune system becomes suppressed and your body doesn’t have the nutrients necessary for optimal function. This can contribute to degenerative processes such as arthritis, cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. You could be deficient and not even know it because standard test results do not measure if the nutrient is properly functioning within the body.
The micronutrient test that we offer can measure the function of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other essential micronutrients within your white blood cells. Unlike conventional serum testing, this analysis can reveal your functional nutrient status over a much longer period of time than conventional serum testing.
But I eat a healthy diet, exercise and take a multivitamin…
University research shows that 50% of people taking multivitamins are still nutritionally deficient. Here’s why:
Absorption: If your body does not absorb the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other essential micronutrients properly, you may still have deficiencies.
Biochemical Individuality: We are metabolically and biochemically unique, which means each person’s requirements may be different.
Chronic Conditions: Health conditions such as fatigue, fibromyalgia, and diabetes can be affected by micronutrient deficiencies.
Lifestyle: Micronutrient demands can be affected by physical activity, prescription drugs, stress, smoking and drinking.
Aging: Absorption difficulties, especially of vitamin B12, often occur as we age.
Micronutrient testing will measure your individual levels of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, and fatty acids. Specific deficiencies will be identified and can be corrected with oral supplementation and/or IV vitamin therapy.
