Reach your optimal health and wellness potential with the below comprehensive nutritional and health tests combined with professional nutritional guidance.
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 if required. Report and resources provided via online patient web page.
Complete test, assessment and report $499 KYD
Nutrigenomix is a University of Toronto spinoff biotechnology company using state-of-the-art testing procedures to analyze the DNA from a saliva sample. Nutrigenomix new 45 gene test can now determine how your genes can influence recommendations related to weight management, body composition, nutrient metabolism, cardio metabolic health, food intolerance, eating habits, fitness and performance and injury risk. Based on these tests, a series of nutrition and fitness recommendations are developed that are aligned with your genetic profile.
Testing includes genetic predisposition to key vitamin and mineral deficiencies and toxicities as well as the effects of caffeine, sodium, saturated fat, Omega 3s, and whole grains on risks for diabetes and heart disease. Dietary recommendations based on genetic results for most effective weight loss and genetic preferences toward fat, sugar and eating between meals.
Risks determined for gluten and lactose intolerance as well as the ability to digest starch. Genetic insight into measurements for exercise motivation and behavior, strength and endurance, as well as pain tolerance and risk for Achilles tendon injury.
Saliva samples are taken at office and sent for analysis. Includes a complete Report and comprehensive nutritional and lifestyle plan to address areas of concern and optimize nutritional status. All results and recommendation are provided via a personal and secure webpage.
Complete cost for test, assessment, full report and recommendations is $399 KYD
Telomere Test - Telomeres are sections of genetic material at the end of each chromosome. As a cell ages, it's telomeres become shorter. New research has correlated shorter Telomere length with premature aging and increased metabolic issues, obesity and several degenerative diseases including cancer, dementia and cardiovascular disease.
SpectraCell’s Telomere Test can determine the length of a person’s telomeres in relation to the person’s age. This is then compared to telomere lengths from a population sample to determine how a person scores.
Laboratory studies have shown that telomeres are highly susceptible to oxidative stress, which will shorten telomere length and enhance cellular aging. Minimising associated risk factors that are linked to shortened telomere activity is recommended and include reducing oxidative stress, correcting nutrient deficiencies, increasing activity, avoiding excess weight gain and correcting insulin resistance.
If your telomere test indicates an advanced age, your Dietitian can do further micronutrient testing to identify deficiencies as well as counsel you on the dietary and lifestyle recommendations to improve your oxidative defense to help reduce telomere shortening.
Blood samples are taken at our lab and sent for analysis. When results are received, a full review of all information is provided with a comprehensive nutritional and lifestyle plan to address areas of concern and optimize nutritional and anti-oxidant status. Report and resources provided via a secure online patient web page.
Complete cost for test, blood drawing, assessment, full report and recommendations is $375 KYD
