Have you often felt rundown, anxious, or out of sorts, but not sure why? Micronutrient blood testing can provide insight.
Micronutrient blood testing can help discover specific vitamin, antioxidant and mineral deficiencies in the body. With this knowledge you can customize an effective strategy to improve health and wellness. Vitamin, antioxidant, and mineral deficiencies have been shown to impact the function of the immune system and contribute to symptoms of fatigue, stress, and general lack of well-being.
What is SpectraCell micronutrient blood testing?
Micronutrient testing is a next generation blood test for measuring specific vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals within your white blood cells (lymphocytes). Scientific evidence shows that analyzing white blood cells provides the most accurate analysis of a body’s deficiencies and how they affect cellular function in a person.
Standard testing may measure blood levels of nutrients, but doesn’t measure whether nutrients are functioning properly within your body. SpectraCell Laboratories developed their own exclusive, patented micronutrient testing process that measures the function of selected minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and other essential micronutrients within your cells. Analysis of the lymphocytes provides a more in-depth look at a person’s functional nutrient status over a longer period of time than standard serum testing.
What are the benefits of micronutrient testing?
Personal empowerment. With the knowledge of what micronutrient and antioxidant deficiencies you have, you can take action to improve your overall health and wellness. How to address deficiencies is a personal preference. You can choose custom IV infusions and intramuscular (IM) injections to optimize your nutrient levels more efficiently with greater absorption. Or, you may prefer the convenience of oral supplements that can work, as well, over a longer period of time.
When choosing oral supplements be sure to check for a “seal of approval.” Three independent companies who test supplements are ConsumerLab, NSF Internationals, and U.S Pharmacopeia. These companies test quality and accuracy, they confirm that what is listed on the label is what is actually provided in the supplement. What they do not test is the accuracy of the health benefits proclaimed by the manufacturer or the safe use of the product. Always research the risks and benefits and when in doubt consult a physician.
Why should I consider SpectraCell micronutrient blood testing?
A large national survey (National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, “NHANES”) found that 93% of the US population does not meet the estimated average requirement for vitamin E, 56% for magnesium, 44% for vitamin A, 31% for vitamin C, 14% for vitamin B6, and 12% for zinc.
We are each metabolically and biochemically unique; our bodies have their own individual requirements. Although you may eat a balanced diet, you may not absorb vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants properly, creating deficiencies.
Chronic illness and age have a significant impact on the body’s ability to properly process and absorb micronutrients. Your lifestyle choices, such as, excessive physical activity, prescription drugs, alcohol, smoking, and sedentary habits impact your body’s micronutrient needs.
SpectraCell’s micronutrient testing is the only test that can truly identify your nutrient status. With this information a customized treatment plan can be created to correct deficiencies.
