Micronutrient Testing

ARE YOU GETTING THE NUTRIENTS YOU NEED TO ACHIEVE OPTIMAL WELLNESS, CONTRIBUTION TO CHRONIC DISEASE PREVENTION AND MANAGE THE AGING PROCESS?

Micronutrient TestingDeficient amounts of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants are often the source of a weakened immune system. A compromised immune system often contributes to degenerative processes.

Standard test results do not measure if the nutrient is properly functioning within the body. You may be deficient in some vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and/or other essential micronutrients and not even know it.

Even if you are eating healthy and taking supplements, it is possible that you are not getting or absorbing adequate amounts of vital nutrients. Many people work at improving their health, yet some individuals still have deficiencies.  Why?

Biochemical Individuality
Because each of us is metabolically and biochemically unique, the micronutrient requirements for one person may be quite different than the requirements for another

Absorption
Although you may eat a balanced diet, if you do not absorb vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and/or other essential micronutrients properly, you will have deficiencies.

Chronic Illness
Health conditions such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, fatigue and multiple sclerosis, to name a few, can be affected, directly or indirectly, by micronutrient deficiencies.

Aging
Our micronutrient requirements at age 30 are quite different from our requirements at age 40, 50 and beyond.  Absorption difficulties, especially of vitamin B12, quite commonly occur as we age.

Lifestyle
Excessive physical activity, prescription drugs, smoking, alcohol and sedentary habits all impact micronutrient demands.

Micronutrient testing takes all the above factors and many others into consideration to identify your nutrient status.  With this information, specific deficiencies that could negatively influence your health may be corrected.
