Nutritional Scientists have been trying to enhance our diets over the ages to eliminate some of the most devastating nutrtional diseases. This has included the addition of Vitamin D to milk to prevent rickets, Iodine to salt to prevent Goiter or the B-vitamin Folic Acid to flour to prevent Neural Tube defect in infants to name a few.
Today, so many things are affecting our nutritional status, such as living longer and having decreased ability to absorb certain vitamins and minerals (Vitamin B12, Calcium), medications (heart drugs and CoQ10), envronmental factors (use of sun screens and Vitamin D status) as well as diets, allergies and food intolerances that eliminate key foods for certain nutrients to only name a few. Deficiencies affect both you current (mood, skin, energy, etc) and future health (heart disease, Osteoporosis, Cancer, etc) in many ways.
Finding out possible deficiencies is a great starting point toward a new healthy eating plan!
VITAMIN AND MINERAL TESTING - SpectraCell's Micronutrient tests measure 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.
Includes report of all deficiencies as well as Dietitian interpretation with dietary and supplement recommendations via consultation. Report and resources will also be provided via online patient web page.
