Why Order Vitamin And Mineral Deficiency Testing from Nutritionally Yours?
Take the GUESSWORK out of buying vitamins! Armed with these results, you will only take the vitamins your body needs!
Role of Micronutrients: Every function in your body requires micronutrients to function optimally.
Producing and releasing energy
Strengthening the immune system
Reducing systemic inflammation
Protecting against free radical damage
Protecting against the development, progression, and re-occurrence of cancer
Maintaining insulin sensitivity
Slowing down cellular aging
Promoting the health of all tissues: skin, bone, brain, breast, gut, prostate, heart, etc
Maintaining a healthy hormonal balance .
WHY THIS TEST OVER ORDINARY TESTS? Micronutrient testing is a baseline test that measures the amount of micronutrients in the cells. This test gives you
a direct measurement of intracellular (WBC) and extracellular (SERUM) nutrient status which tells you if you are truly deficient in a miocronutrient or is it a matter
of cellular absorption. Our test includes: vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fatty acids, and amino acids to help you make healthy lifestyle choices.
Example: If you are taking 100 IU a day of COQ 10 and it tests high in extracellular (serum) and low in intracellular (wbc) then the body is not absorbing it. The nutrients
are not getting into the cell despite supplementation.
Intracellular: White Blood Cells measure the amount of nutrients within the cell. Cellular micronutrient absorption is an important step in maintaining and promoting
optimal functioning of all cells. Even though a healthy diet or supplements are being taken, cellular intake levels or those nutrients may not be sufficient and may still
provide risks for deficiencies and the disorders associated with them.
Benefits: Identifying functional deficiencies in intracellular micronutrient levels and absorption issues, provides long term nutritional status of the last 4-6 months.
Extracellular: Serum measures the amount of nutrients that are freely floating in the blood (outside the cell) and reflects a person’s diet over a short period of time. These
are dependent on short term intake of supplements or diet and give direct assessment of baseline micronutrient levels.
Benefits: identifies baseline nutritional deficiencies, detecting higher than normal levels of vitamins and minerals in your blood, identifies excesses of nutrients caused by
over supplementation, avoids unnecessary spending on supplements, provides short term nutritional status of the last few days.
Red Blood Cells: this is important because folate, iron, magnesium is tested that way. RBC tests the life span of a nutrient and is also very reflective of a person’s dioetary intake.
Knowing both your extracellular and intracellular micronutrient levels are key to a thorough understanding of your nutritional requirements at a foundational level, which may contribute to your risk for disease, while simultaneously and positively impacting your overall health and well – being.
Crucial Antioxidant Testing! The total antioxidant function test which assesses the ability of cells to resist damage caused by free radicals and other forms of oxidative stress. Due to the considerable number of cellular antioxidants with extensive interactions, redundancies, repair and recharging capabilities, measuring total function is the most accurate and clinically useful way to assess your capacity to resist oxidative damage.

SUPER customer service!
Studies have shown that 50 percent of people taking a multivitamin are still functionally deficient in essential nutrients that are vital to long-term health.
Why our Vitamin Test Kit?
- It is the only vitamin test that tests intracellular and extracellular levels of nutrients. Are you taking enough and are they being utilized properly by the cells?
- Includes an Omega Panel via RBCs! Omegas are a part of the cell membrane of the rbc and life span is longer than in the wbc and more reflective of dietary intake.
- Easy to Order: Just order through our secure online store and we will mail you your test kit right away.
- We provide a list of facilities to draw your blood, small blood draw fees may apply
- Results are emailed and mailed to you within 4 1/2 weeks and you are provided with a thorough and individualized protocol by the lab AND by me. YES! I personally review your test result and write up a protocol just for YOU!
Only take the vitamins your body needs! Get tested, get answers!
Vitamins: Vitamins are essential organic nutrients, most of which are not made in the body, or only in low amounts, and usually must be obtained through food. When dietary
intake of a vitamin is low, deficiency disorders result. Vitamins are vital to health and needed to be considered in the context of nutritional quality.
Minerals: Minerals are inorganic nutrients that also play a key role in enduring health and well-being. Minerals are either trace (copper, iodine, iron, manganese,
selenium, zinc), and macro elements; (calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium). As with vitamins, minerals are found in small amounts in the body and are obtained from
a wide variety of foods.
No single food contains all of the vitamins and minerals we need and, therefore, a balanced and varied diet is needed for an adequate intake of all
Can’t You Just Get Vitamins From Food?
In a perfect world, our body would achieve the right balance of all vitamins and minerals from the food we eat. Due to chemicals, sedentary lifestyles, malabsorption, chronic conditions, age and stress, the vitamin and mineral needs of many people have increased and while calorie intake needs have decreased.
Amino Acids And Antioxidants Are Essential Too
Amino Acids are the “building blocks” of proteins which are essential to life. Protein provides structure for all living things and the vital chemical processes that sustain life. Protein is in our muscles, ligaments, tendons, organs, glands, nails, fluids, hair and are needed for bone growth. Each protein is needed for a specific need within the body and one protein cannot be substituted for another.
Antioxidants like Vitamins A, C, D and E, selenium, alpha-lipoic acid, CoQ10 help protect the body from harmful free radicals which can cause cell damage and inhibit the immune system. Antioxidants play an important role in the prevention of sickness and rapid aging. Free radicals come from radiation, the sun, cigarette smoke, toxic chemicals, polluted air, chemicals and more.
How Does It Work?
1. Order your vitamin or mineral deficiency test kit and we mail the kit to you right away. You do not need a doctor to order this test.
2. We will provide you with the name and address of a lab near you to perform the blood draw. Most hospitals will perform a “blood draw on a test kit”. A small lab fee may apply (usually around $25).
3. Results are mailed to you in about two weeks. Comprehensive analysis and protocol are included by the lab AND our head clinician.
4. FREE emails directly to us if you have questions, We are TRULY here to help YOU!
