How To Find Out If You're Deficient In Any Nutrients

Updated: May 13, 2019

Nutritional balance is so important in staying healthy. Wouldn't you like to know exactly what your nutritional profile looks like? Well now you on to find out more.

Traditionally, an individual waited to go to the doctor at the first signs of a symptom. Today, people are looking for ways to not only manage illness with personalized treatment plans, but they are also seeking to achieve a higher level of wellness. Eating a balanced diet, exercising and taking a multivitamin may simply not be enough. Each person's body is unique in its own way and has its own nutritional requirements. Due to the complexity of the human body, an individualized healthcare approach is the only way to guarantee optimal results. And what better way than a simple blood test that looks at your unique nutrient deficiencies?

Here's a couple of questions to ask yourself:

  • Do you find yourself lacking energy, feeling stressed or maybe a little depressed?

  • Do you have digestive difficulties and wonder if your food is getting absorbed?

  • Do you want to boost your immune system now, to possibly prevent chronic disease later?

  • Are you an athlete and want to maximize your performance?

Be Proactive, NOT Reactive

What is Micronutrient Testing?

SpectraCell's Micronutrient tests 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.

Below is a list of the nutrients tested:

How is the Testing Done?

Two tubes of your blood will be drawn and sent to the lab. The test is performed on your lymphocytes, one type of white blood cell in your blood. Some researchers believe cellular analysis is superior to measuring levels of nutrient in the serum or plasma because testing these 2 routes doesn’t determine if the nutrient is accomplishing anything. So even if you eat the night before, your micronutrient status will not be affected.

So whether you're an athlete, a student or a stay at home mom, we all have nutritional requirements specific to us. Finding out how to best optimize your health through a micronutrient test is the first step in living the life you were meant to live!
