Micro Nutrient Testing in Charlotte, NC
Micronutrients are vitamins and minerals required in small quantities that are essential to our health, development, and growth. Each nutrient known today is responsible for specific physiological functions, making them unique and irreplaceable.
Overwhelming evidence suggests that a lack of these vital nutrients has a profound impact on the body’s immune system. Thus, adequate intake of these vitamins and minerals could mean the difference between a healthy life and a life fraught with 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 all 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?
- BIOCHEMICAL INDIVIDUALITY
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.
- CHRONIC ILLNESS
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.
