Is my body receiving the right amount of nutrients?
You find yourself making your best efforts to eat at least a few servings of veggies, fruits, lean proteins and high-quality grains. You watch what you eat and read labels to stay healthy. You exercise regularly……however in the back of your mind you ask yourself: could I be vitamin or mineral deficient? If you think you might be, then here are a few questions to ask yourself:
- Do you find yourself feeling stressed, tired and maybe a little depressed?
- Do you take prescription medicines to alleviate symptoms of certain conditions, but wonder why the condition doesn’t improve and/or exists at all?
- Do you want to boost your immune system now to possibly prevent chronic disease later on in life?
Vitamins, minerals and amino acids are key micronutrients with highly targeted functions in your body for your overall wellbeing. Being micronutrient deficient can represent itself in a variety of ways impacting your emotional and physical health beyond what you can imagine. Eating a balanced diet, exercising and taking a multivitamin is likely not enough. Each person’s body and nutritional needs are unique in their own way. Due to the complexity of the human body, an individualized nutritional approach based on the micronutrient testing report is a guaranteed way to promote optimal health.
What is Micronutrient Testing? Micronutrient tests measure 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 and/or if your body might not be utilizing the good foods you give it the way it should be.
What information and results will I get from testing my micronutrient status? Micronutrient lab results identify your deficiencies. If you have been experiencing chronic fatigue, stress, depression, have trouble managing a chronic disease even with medication, have had a compromised immune system for a while, and visited a few physicians without obtaining a diagnosis or relief of your symptoms, this test could be the right one for you.
Our Registered Dietitian is trained to make individualized nutritional and/or supplement recommendations to replete your deficiencies. Recommendations consider your busy lifestyle, schedule, meal timing and personal preferences to help you achieve your optimal state of health. See below features of your sample report:
