Are you taking too many supplements? Not enough? Nutritional status is a
vital foundation of health and performance.
You may be deficient in some vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and/or
other essential micronutrients and not even not even know it.
University research has shown that 50% of people taking multivitamins are still nutritionally deficient.
It is important to know your nutrient status, because it has been shown
that vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies can contribute to
degenerative processes such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease

Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Biotin, Folate, Pantothenate
Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, Copper AMINO ACIDS Asparagine, Glutamine, Serine.
Alpha Lipoic Acid, Coenzyme Q10, Cysteine, Glutathione, Selenium, Vitamin E, SPECTOXâ?¢ for total antioxidant function.
Chromium, Fructose Sensitivity, Glucose-Insulin, Metabolism.
Choline, Inositol, Carnitine.
MicroNutrient Test measures your bodyâ??s ability to absorb 32 vitamins,
minerals, antioxidants and other essential nutrients within your white
blood cells. This non-fasting blood test tells you if you have a vitamin

assessments were based on clinical observation and measurements of
static levels of certain nutrients in serum. Static serum levels are not
always representative indicators for assessing cell metabolism and
MicroNutrient Test offers a unique means
to scientifically assess the intracellular requirements of
micronutrients that play an important role in overall health and

vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants, providing a powerful
clinical assessment tool. Our panels are designed to provide you with

(Micronutrient Test), we also provide you with targeted nutrient
