Why Nutrients Matter
Our cells are functioning and reacting throughout our entire body, every second of the day.
Inside our cells are where nutrients are used to create enzymes, proteins, neurotransmitters, hormones, detoxification, and more! 
But, What Happens When Nutrients are Low?
 

Fatigue  -  Anxiety  -  Hormone Imbalance  -  Infertility

Poor Sleep  -  Sluggish Detox  -  Headaches  -  Metabolic Syndrome

What Can Cause Deficiencies?

Nutrient deficiencies can occur from many common conditions such as:

  • poor diet

  • stress (emotional and physical)

  • environmental toxins

  • medications

  • compromised immune system

  • damaged gut lining

 

Traditionally, a person waited to go to the doctor at the first signs of a symptom.  Today, individuals are looking for way to not only manage illness with personalized treatment plans, but they are also seeking to achieve a higher level of wellness.

How This Test Can Help You

Spectracell Micronutrient Test 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.

These results will determine how well the body is able to produce enzymes, hormones, and other substances essential for proper growth, development, and good health. To learn more about your results and receive specific recommendations, schedule an initial consult with me. We will review in-depth your health history, diet, lifestyle and symptoms. 

With this test you will receive an overview of all nutrient deficiencies or borderline deficiencies found, numeric and graph reports, and supplement repletion recommendations. Results are typically received within 14-17 business days.

How is this Test Different?

Standard nutrient blood panels measure the level of the nutrient in transport either to the cell or from the cell. However, majority of nutrients function within the cells. Spectracell Laboratories developed their exclusive, patented micronutrient panel to measure levels of micronutrients within white blood cells.

Since we are measuring levels within the cell, we get a snapshot of nutrient status over a longer period of time rather than a variable plasma level that can change in 1-2 weeks. The full micronutrient panel measures 35 essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, and fatty acids. Spectracell provides a more meaningful and specific measurement of nutritional status than other market tests.
