Vitamins are necessary for life and for the body to function properly. They help to process energy from food, and they work with enzymes to help the body with its daily processes. Vitamins are either fat-soluble or water-soluble. Fat-soluble vitamins can be stored in the fat for later use, but water-soluble vitamins have to be processed at the moment of ingestion so these need to be taken daily.
Individuals have different vitamin needs based on many factors including environment, diet, age, current health conditions, and lifestyle. No matter how healthy your diet may seem, it is still possible for you to be missing vital nutrients. In fact, even people who look and act fairly healthy can have a vitamin deficiency. A vitamin deficiency can leave you with a general feeling of fatigue or general pain. It can also present with symptoms of lack of focus, hair loss, unhealthy skin, numbness, muscle cramps, challenged immune system and more. It is even still possible today to get the more extreme vitamin deficiency anemia’s that you might normally only associate with sailors from previous centuries.
Studies show that 50% of people taking a multivitamin are still functionally deficient in essential nutrients that are vital for long term health. At Nutritionally Yours Testing Services we offer FIA Micronutrient Testing which is our top vitamin blood test. It tests your levels of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids and fatty acids. This vitamin test looks at active peripheral lymphocytes which shows nutrient levels over the past four to eight months. This is different than traditional labs that provide you a snapshot of your vitamin levels on the day the blood is drawn only. Our test also indicates how well nutrients are being absorbed, as well as many other relevant facts about your body and the vitamins in it. Along with your test results we send you a detailed explanation and protocol to help you know exactly which vitamins your body needs.
Who is this test perfect for? It is perfect for people that do not take vitamins and are not sure where to start. It is perfect for people that take vitamins but are unsure what they truly need. It is also perfect for people having health struggles that may be caused by a vitamin deficiency.
Stop the vitamin guess work! Learn your TRUE vitamin needs!
