When the body is given the vitamins and minerals it TRULY needs, the quality of life can be improved and disease prevention can be supported and achieved.
Standard tests only measure static quantities of vitamins and minerals present in serum, primarily reflecting dietary intake. Our tests identify the long-term functional intracellular requirements using lymphocytes. TRUE vitamin and mineral deficiencies that can be effecting your health, wellness and vitality.
Finding Vitamin and Mineral Deficiencies Before it’s Too Late: A vitamin may be present in the body, but it may not be properly activated, appropriately localized or have sufficient cofactors to function at a normal level of activity. No matter what the cause, the result will be a defect in the biochemical pathways that depend upon that nutrient for optimal function. A deficient or defective pathway may operate at a sub-optimal level for many months, or even years, before a symptom appears.
Studies have shown that 50% of people taking a multivitamin are still functionally deficient essential nutrients that are vital to long term health. Deficiencies suppress the function of the immune system and contribute to degenerative processes.
Even people with healthy dietary and life habits can have vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Biochemical individuality, absorption, chronic conditions, age, and lifestyle influence individual micronutrient requirements. Even a healthy-looking person can have vitamin, mineral or antioxidant deficiencies that may only be revealed through micronutrient testing.
VITAMIN DEFICIENCY TESTING: Vitamins are essential to life. They contribute to good health by aiding in the metabolism & helping the bio chemical processes that provide energy from digested food. Vitamins work with enzymes, helping the body perform all of it’s necessary activities. Some vitamins are water soluble and others are fat or oil soluble. Water soluble vitamins cannot be stored by the body so they need to be taken daily. These include C & B vitamins. Oil or fat soluble vitamins are stored for longer period of times by the body. These include A, D, E & K. Both types of vitamins are important for helping the body function properly.
VITAMINS VS. FOOD: In a perfect world our body would be provided with the right balance of all vitamins and minerals from the food we eat. Due to chemicals, sedentary lifestyles & stress our vitamin needs have increased and our calorie intake needs have decreased. The only way to nourish our body with the nutrients needed without increasing the amount of food we are eating is through supplementation.
MINERAL DEFICIENCY TESTING: All living cells require minerals. They are needed for body fluids, blood and bone, nerve function & muscle tone. They help the body perform all of its functions including providing energy, growth & healing. Minerals come in 2 forms, bulk and trace. Bulk minerals are calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium and phosphorous. They are needed in larger amounts than trace minerals. Trace minerals are also important, just in smaller amounts. These include boron, chromium, copper, germanium, iodine, iron, manganese, molybdenum, selenium, silicon, sulfur, vanadium and zinc.
AMINO ACIDS TESTING: Amino Acids are the “building blocks” that make up proteins which are essential to life. Protein provides structure for all living things and the vital chemical processes that sustain life. Protein is in our muscles, ligaments, tendons, organs, glands, nails, fluids, hair and are needed for bone growth. Each protein is needed for a specific need within the body and one protein cannot be substituted for another. 20% of amino acids can only be obtained through the diet and are called “essential” amino acids. “Nonessential” amino acids are made by the body by other amino acids from food sources. Both types are important to the body.
TEST FOR ANTIOXIDANTS: Antioxidants help protect the body from harmful free radicals which can cause cell damage & inhibit the immune system. Antioxidants play an important role in prevention of sickness and rapid aging. Free radicals come from radiation, the sun, cigarette smoke, toxic chemicals, polluted air, chemicals and more. Some antioxidants include: Vitamin A, beta-carotene, flavoinoids, Vitamins C & E, selenium, melatonin and certain herbs. Antioxidants can be gotten by eating fruits, vegetables and grains, but unfortunately that is not enough. Free radicals damage the food we eat everyday due to the polluted air.
