AM I REQUIRED TO FAST FOR THIS LAB TEST?
The Micronutrient Test measures your body’s ability to absorb 32 vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other essential nutrients into your white blood cells. This non-fasting blood test tells if you have a vitamin deficiency and gives you a plan for how to correct it.
More importantly, the results can help you reduce the risk of illness and disease related to such deficiencies.
WHY DO I NEED TO CHECK MYSELF FOR NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIES?
The Micronutrient Test will tell you which vitamins you are deficient in and which to focus on – thereby eliminating your deficiency and any unnecessary spending on costly supplements.
Scientific evidence confirms that vitamin deficiencies are associated with disease processes and the overall conditions of your health. The Micronutrient Test is the only test that takes a nutritional assessment and creates a plan to correct any deficiency negatively influencing your health. Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to suppress immune functions and contribute to chronic degenerative processes such as arthritis, cancer, Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
