What Is Micronutrient Testing?
Micronutrient testing is a next generation blood test for measuring specific vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino/fatty acids and metabolites within an individual’s white blood cells (lymphocytes). Scientific evidence shows that analyzing the white blood cells provides the most accurate analysis of a body’s deficiencies and how they affect cellular function in a person.
How well are you absorbing your oral vitamins? Have you ever thought about what vitamins, minerals, amino/fatty acids and antioxidants your body is missing? Spring Center of Hope offers SpectraCell Micronutrient Testing. This test is an intracellular white blood cell test that determines what you are deficient in. This is a better indicator of long-term deficiencies over a regular serum blood test.
These micronutrients enable the body to produce enzymes, hormones and other substances essential for proper growth, development and good health. Most people who take the test are borderline or deficient in 5-6 out of the 33 that we test for…. What do you think your body is missing out on and how does that affect you?
- Knowledge of micronutrient deficiencies.
- Knowledge of antioxidant deficiencies.
- Access to tailored IV drips and IV Pushes to target results.
- Customized treatment plan.
SPECTRACELL MICRONUTRIENT TEST
This is a patented micronutrient test that measures the function of 34 vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other essential micronutrients within your white blood cells. The results will reveal your functional nutrient status over a much longer time period than conventional serum testing. It provides a more meaningful measurement of nutritional status because it indicates what nutrition is actually getting from your serum into your white blood cells.
Vitamins: Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin B1, Vitamin D, Vitamin B2, Vitamin K, Vitamin B3, Biotin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Vitamin B12, Pantothenate
Minerals: Calcium, Zinc, Manganese, Magnesium, Copper
Amino Acids: Asparagine, Glutamine, Serine
Antioxidants: Alpha Lipoic Acid, Glutathione, Coenzyme Q10, Selenium, Cysteine, Vitamin E
SPECTROX™ for total antioxidant function.
IMMUNIDEX™ for total immune system function
Carbohydrate Metabolism: Chromium, Fructose Sensitivity, Glucose-Insulin Metabolism
Fatty Acids: Oleic Acid
Metabolites: Choline, Inositol, Carnitine
Vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to suppress the functions of the immune system which can contribute to the overall conditions of one’s health and diseases such as:
- Arthritis • Cardiovascular Disease • Adrenal Fatigue • Hormone Dysfunction
- Cancer • Diabetes • Thyroid Dysfunction • Gastrointestinal Dysfunction
- Weight Loss Resistance
50% of people who take multivitamins are still nutritionally deficient.
Even if you eat a balanced diet, exercise, and take multivitamins, you may still have nutritional deficiencies. Why?
Because each of us is metabolically and biochemically unique, the micronutrient requirements for one person may be quite different that the requirements for another.
Although you may eat a balanced diet, if you do not absorb vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and/or other essential micronutrients properly, you will have deficiencies.
Health conditions and diseases can be affected, directly, or indirectly, by micronutrient deficiencies.
Our micronutrient requirements change as we age. Absorption difficulties, especially of Vitamin B12, are common as we age.
Excessive physical activity, prescription drugs, smoking, alcohol, and sedentary habits all impact micronutrient demands.
