Nutrients - Blood

Virtually all metabolic and developmental processes that take place in the body require micronutrients to function properly. Studies have repeatedly demonstrated that nutrient deficiencies can adversely affect our health and these deficiencies can set the stage for chronic disease and compromised immune health at any stage in life, particularly if they persist.

SpectraCell’s Micronutrient test is unique in that it measures the functional level of 31 vitamins, minerals, amino/fatty acids, antioxidants, and metabolites present within our blood cells. After all, this is where metabolism takes place and where nutrients do their job. Unlike standard serum measurements, which only assess the concentration of extracellular nutrients in a single moment of time, SpectraCell’s Micronutrient test gives us a view of our functional nutritional status from the past four to six months.
