Spectracell Vitamin/Nutrient Analysis

Spectracell Vitamin and Nutrient Analysis

Why do you need a nutrient analysis?

Nutrient balance is a vital foundation of health. Each vitamin and mineral plays an important and individual role in maintaining our bodies health through cellular activity. When some of our cells don’t function at their best, it sets the stage for failing health and disease. In fact, the overwhelming evidence suggests that vitamin deficiencies suppress the function of the immune system which can contribute to degenerative processes such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes, to name a few. Many people may be deficient in some vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other essential micronutrients and not even know it.

Many people that maintain a healthy lifestyle may still be nutrient deficient due to no fault of their own. Several factors affect ways that someone can become deficient:

Genetic make-up: Every individual is chemically different and one person may have different nutrient requirements than another.

Absorption: Even if someone eats a healthy, balanced diet, their gut may not absorb all of the nutrients in their food.

Aging: Older people have different nutritional needs than someone in their thirties. Also, older people have a lower rate of absorption.

Lifestyle: Even too much of a good thing can affect nutritional needs. Someone who is very active will have higher nutritional needs. Alcohol and certain medications also affect nutritional levels.

The Spectracell Analysis Solution.

In an effort to maintain optimal health and stave off disease, we offer an in-depth analysis of your vitamin and nutrient status. This testing can determine the functional status of the nutrient’s in your body which standard testing does not identify. Current nutrient tests reflect an individual’s nutrient intake over a relatively narrow window of time. The results are often biased by many factors, especially by foods eaten during the few days preceding the test, allowing potential long-term deficiencies to be missed. The SpectraCell test we offer reveals your nutrient status that is reflective over a period of several months versus a few days. The test identifies which vitamins and supplements you need and to what extent. The Spectracell analysis not only identifies deficiencies, but makes recommendations for your specific supplementation needs.
