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!
WHY THIS TEST OVER ORDINARY TESTS? Before the introduction of intracellular tests, vitamin testing were based on clinical observation and measurements of static levels of certain nutrients in serum. Static serum levels are not always representative indicators for assessing cell metabolism and utilization.
This “micronutrient test” offers a unique means to scientifically assess the intracellular requirements of micronutrients that play an important role in overall health and wellness. Our tests measure the biochemical function of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants, providing a powerful resource for YOU and YOUR health!
Our panels are designed to provide you with the most comprehensive nutritional analysis available. As the only lab that can offer a truly functional intracellular testing.
The test looks at your lymphocytes for answers! Since lymphocytes are produced in the bone marrow and stored in the peripheral locations for long periods of time (the average life span of a lymphocyte is approximately four to six months), our labs measurements provide a powerful portrait of each persons long-term nutrient status.
Crucial Antioxidant Testing! The total antioxidant function test (SPECTROX™) 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.

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.
Are You Experiencing Any Of These Symptoms?
- brain fog
- frequent illness
- bone loss
- muscle pain
- tingling or numbness
- hair loss
- high homocysteine
- cardiovascular disease
- slow wound healing
- fat malabsorption
- skin eruptions
- blood sugar imbalances
- weak immune response
If you recognize any of these symptoms, a vitamin and mineral deficiency could be key to finding a solution.
Finding Vitamin and Mineral Deficiencies Before It’s Too Late
Taking more vitamins isn’t always the answer. A vitamin may be present in the body, without being properly activated, appropriately localized, or having sufficient cofactors to function at a normal level of activity. No matter what the cause, the result will be a defect in the biochemical pathways that depends on that nutrient for optimal function. A deficient or defective pathway may operate at a sub-optimal level for many months, or even years, before a symptom appears.
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.
What About Minerals?
We need minerals too! All living cells require minerals. They are needed for hydration, blood and bone, nerve function, and muscle tone. Minerals like magnesium, chromium, calcium, and potassium help the body perform all of its functions including providing energy, growth, and healing.
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.
What Vitamin And Mineral Deficiencies Are Tested By Our Kits?
- Alpha Lipoic Acid

OTHER NUTRIENT TESTS OFFERED:
OMEGA CHECK: Determines risk for cardiovascular issues. Adequate levels of omega 3s EPA and DHA can reduce this risk by 90%. The index measures the % of omega EPA and DHA levels in red blood cell membranes (RBC) which is highly correlated to myocardial membrane omega 3 levels.
If you are taking omega 3’s you will still benefit from this test!
Ratio 3 to 6
Monounsaturated Fatty Acids
Saturated Fatty Acids
Trans Fatty Acids
CARDIO / METABOLIC : looks at risk levels for cardiovascular disease, inflammation, diabetes risk , are carbohydrates metabolizing properly or not, advanced lipoprotein particle testing for cardiovascular risk assessment.
Lipoprotein Fractionation, Lipoprotein Particle Numbers, Comprehensive Cholesterol Test, C-reactive protein, homocysteine, leptin, Apolipoprotein A-1, Apolipoprotein B, insulin, glucose, A1C, C-peptide, Adiponectin, Omega Panel (breaks down all the omega fatty acids).
Overview of lipoprotein particles and cholesterol
Cholesterol testing has historically been used as the standard indicator for cardiovascular disease classified as HDL (good) or LDL (bad). However, it is actually the lipoprotein particles that carry the cholesterol throughout the body, not necessarily the cholesterol within them, that are responsible for key steps in plaque production and the resulting development of cardiovascular disease.
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 four weeks. Comprehensive analysis and protocol is included by the l ab AND our head clinician.
4. FREE emails directly to us if you have questions, We are TRULY here to help YOU!
