Why Do Micronutrient Testing?
When clients ask about their vitamin levels at my wellness clinic, I tell them about micronutrient testing and why it is the only one to do.
Micronutrient testing measures the function of 35 nutritional components, including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, and amino acids, within our white blood cells. Scientific evidence shows us that analyzing the white blood cells through micronutrient testing gives us the most accurate analysis of a body’s deficiencies.
Cellular deficiency does not have to be a normal consequence of aging. Your state of health begins with a single cell. Since your body is made up of approximately 73 trillion cells, the cumulative effect of cellular deficiencies significantly affects your health and well-being. Failure to address cellular deficiencies can lead to symptoms and chronic illness.
Micronutrient testing analyzes your nutrient levels with the most detail possible for their functionality.. Other methods only look at the static levels of vitamins and nutrients levels. Static does not provide enough detailed information.
Is Micronutrient Testing Worth it?
Pinpointing your specific vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant deficiencies helps show you why you may currently have particular symptoms and how to prevent others in the future.
Micronutrient testing is worth it, so you do not take vitamins you do not need or miss a deficiency and suffer the symptoms.
If one nutrient, like vitamin b12 or folic acid, is low, there may be adverse symptoms like fatigue, nerve pain, or brain fog. If nutrients like chromium or vanadium are low, you may have a blood sugar imbalance.
The first time I ran micronutrient testing on myself, I was surprised at how low my antioxidants were. Not only did the test show me exactly which ones to take, but it also showed me how much to purchase. As I supported my body with suitable antioxidants, I noticed I was not getting as sick as usual during cold and flu season.
What is the Most Accurate Micronutrient Test?
Spectracell’s Micronutrient Testing (MNT) will tell you exactly the micronutrients you are deficient in. It evaluates how 31 different vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants are working within your cells. But it goes even further—Their micronutrient testing will tell how well your cells can withstand oxidative stress, how well your cells are metabolizing carbohydrates and how adeptly your cells function when launching an immune response.
This information allows you to assemble a targeted vitamin regimen based on the results. Test results come with a personalized protocol from me, not just a lab analysis. I want you to understand your results and know what to do. Your test results and protocol is unique to your biochemistry. I do not believe in the one size fits all for vitamin supplements.
How Do I Check My Micronutrient Levels?
Many people order our comprehensive vitamin test every month. You can easily check your micronutrient levels in the blood. Once an order is placed, we mail you a test kit right away. Your order form will be emailed to you. Results are emailed (or they can be mailed) to you in about four weeks with a personalized protocol.
There is a sample test on this page and plenty of other helpful information.
If you have questions just call our clinic or email us. We are here to help you feel your best.
