MicroNutrient Test

SpectraCell’s Micronutrient test provides the most comprehensive nutritional analysis available by measuring functional deficiencies at the cellular level. It is an assessment of how well the body utilizes 31 vitamins, minerals, amino/fatty acids, antioxidants, and metabolites, while conveying the body’s need for these micro nutrients that enable the body to produce enzymes, hormones, and other substances essential for proper growth, development, and good health. Repletion recommendations are made based on need. Call to schedule your consultation at (713) 463-4044.

Why use the SpectraCell® Micro nutrient test?

What truly makes our test unique is that it measures the functional level and capability of micro nutrients present within white blood cells, where metabolism takes place and where micro nutrients do their job—thus taking a person’s biochemical individuality into account. Unlike static serum measurements, which only assess the concentration of nutrients present outside of the cell (extracellular) and only provide a glimpse of your health, SpectraCell’s Micronutrient test is a long term assessment (4-6 months) that addresses the functional impact (performance) of micronutrients—what really matters. 

Why is nutrient status important?

Virtually all metabolic and developmental processes that take place in the body require micro-nutrients, and strong evidence suggests that subtle vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant deficiencies can contribute to degenerative processes such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Evaluating micronutrient status can therefore be the first step in identifying metabolic inadequacies while shedding light on the possible underlying causes of complex chronic conditions. 

When should a micronutrient test be considered?

Extensive scientific and clinical studies spanning 50 years have repeatedly demonstrated that micronutrient deficiencies can adversely affect health. These deficiencies can set the stage for chronic disease and compromised immune health at any stage in life, particularly if they persist.

Clinical Applications:

  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • Neurological disorders/Alzheimer’s
  • Autism and other spectrum disorders
  • Mood disorders
  • Fatigue
  • Osteoporosis
  • Fertility issues
  • Weight issues
  • Sports performance optimization

 

SpectraCell’s Micronutrient test measures 31 vitamins, minerals, amino/fatty acids, antioxidants, and metabolites – and how they affect cellular function in a person. Correlating micronutrient deficiencies not only slows aging and degenerative disease progression, it can also prevent as well as repair cellular dysfunction, and by extension, disease.
