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 gives us the most accurate analysis of a body’s deficiencies.
Micronutrient testing essentially analyzes your nutrient levels with the most detail possible. At Nutritionally Yours, we take a totally holistic approach to health that allows your body to heal itself, naturally. This means that when there is a symptom, we look at what can be causing the symptom or health challenge. One area we utilize often is Micronutrient testing. You are a whole person, full of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and fatty acids, and they all need to be in optimal levels for you to be in optimal health. If one nutrient, like a 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 be having a blood sugar imbalance.
Our comprehensive Micronutrient test is run through Spectracell Laboratory. It looks at every single B vitamin, vitamin A, C, D, folic acid, K, minerals like calcium, magnesium and potassium, antioxidants like E, COQ10, Alpha Lipoic Acid and glutathione, amino acids like L-Glutamine and L-Carnitine, fatty acid levels, carbohydrate metabolism, metabolites, and general immune function. Maintaining healthy diet and exercise is great but sometimes it just isn’t quite enough. In order for your body to function optimally, it may be important to learn your Micronutrients levels and give your body everything it needs.
So….what is Micronutrient testing? It is an advance way to test your vitamin, mineral and nutrient levels. Who is Micronutrient resting helpful for? People that are tired, have brain fog, imbalanced blood sugar, pain, weakened immune system, hair loss, infertility, weight gain, depressed and so on. A micronutrient deficiency can cause a large number of symptoms and health challenges.
If any of these sound familiar, we recommend Micronutrient testing to see the core needs of your body.
