Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to suppress the functions of the immune system, leaving us more susceptible to chronic diseases like arthritis, cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
SpectraCell's exclusive Micronutrient Test is a comprehensive nutritional analysis of the body's intracellular function. It measures 35 selected vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other essential micronutrients within your white blood cells. This analysis can reveal a person's functional nutritional status over a much longer period of time than conventional static serum testing, thus, providing you with a more meaningful measurement than any other nutritional testing.
BUT I EAT A BALANCED DIET, EXERCISE AND TAKE A MULTIVITAMIN...
Many people lead healthy lifestyles, yet some individuals still have deficiencies. Why?
Because each of us is metabolically and biochemically unique, the micronutrient requirements for one person may be quite different than the requirements of another.
Although you may eat a balanced diet, if you do not absorb vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and/or other essential micronutrients properly, you can have deficiencies.
Health conditions such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, fatigue and multiple sclerosis, to name a few, can be affected directly or indirectly by micronutrient deficiencies.
Our micronutrient requirements at age 30 are quite different from our requirements at age 40, 50, and beyond. Absorption difficulties, especially of Vitamin B12, quite commonly occur as we age.
Excessive physical activity, prescription drugs, smoking, alcohol, and sedentary habits all impact micronutrient demands.
