Are you getting all you need from the food you eat?
Balanced nutrition is not only vital for optimal health and wellness, but critical for the prevention of chronic disease and for the support of ageing.
If you’re feeling tired, rundown, overwhelmed, or stressed out, you may lack important nutrients necessary for proper physical, mental, or emotional function. Every nutrient plays a part in providing the body with what it needs throughout the day, for maximum activity and operation.
Micronutrient Testing Provides Precision Accuracy For Pinpointing Specific Deficiencies in Nutrition.
An Ounce of Prevention, Worth a Pound of Cure
Eating right has always been important for healthy immune function and heart health, but never more than today. Deficits in the American diet result in an estimated 50% of individuals with depleted levels of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Magnesium. Without access to natural, whole foods and clean, unprocessed products, most children and adults only get a fraction of the nutrients they need.
Why a “balanced” diet may simply not be enough?
In a world of GMO (genetically modified organisms) and manufacturing processes, many foods just lack the nutrients needed to sustain adequate health and wellness. Here’s why. Much of the time, breads, cereals, and wheat products are fortified with vitamins and minerals. These are taken from sources that genetically alter crops. In order to be classified as non-GMO products however, food must not contain any of these ingredients. This restricts nutrient fortification greatly as more and more manufacturers move toward more natural product production.
Fresh produce on a whole is also not as nutritious as it once was as growers look for ways to modify taste, color, and freshness while attempting to create high yields of fruits and vegetables. In some cases, most nutrients are actually bred right of products.
The complexity of the human body was also not designed to process many of the chemicals and additives used in food production today, making it toxic to the body at worst, and non-nutritive at best.
Micronutrient Testing Is The Answer
What is Micronutrient Testing?
Because the white blood cell count reveals much about the body and possible nutrient deficiencies, it is possible to test levels of many vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and key amino acids.
How are results displayed?
Micronutrient testing results will be provided through an easy to understand overview, both numeric and in graph form. Specific nutrient deficiencies will be identified along with recommendations for further nutrient supplementation.
Micronutrient test includes:
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin B1
- Vitamin B2
- Vitamin B3
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B12
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin K
- Amino Acids
- Fatty Acids
- Oleic Acid
- Alpha Lipoic Acid
- Coenzyme Q10
- Vitamin E
Nutrient deficiencies can lead to chronic health conditions such as heart disease, hypertension, diabetes and cancer and can contribute to degenerative, age-related conditions such as arthritis as well.
Do I need a prescription from my doctor for Micronutrient tests?
No. You have full and complete access to a battery of tests without permission from your healthcare provider. (You may wish to share your personal test results with your physician, however).
How do I order my Micronutrient tests?
Ordering your Micronutrient test kit is easy with online ordering. Some individuals may also wish to consult with their physician who can order testing on their behalf as well.
How long does it take to get test results?
Most test results take approximately 3 weeks to arrive either online or through regular mail.
