Nutrient deficiencies are common. 90% of people are deficient, and 50% of those people are already taking supplements.
- Commonly used prescription medications can cause nutrient depletion.
- Patients shouldn’t self-medicate with supplements. Over-supplementing can be harmful.
- Understanding how nutrients correlate with each other is a critical part of a personalized supplement plan.
- Knowing what deficiencies exist takes the guesswork out of supplementing.
- You might be over supplementing with unnecessary vitamins, minerals or antioxidants. Too much can be harmful.
- Micronutrient Testing gives a functional cellular analysis of nutrient deficiencies. This is different from all other nutritional assessments, using t-lymphocytes to not only measure if a nutrient is present but also if the nutrient is being absorbed and properly functioning within the body.
- Micronutrient Testing gives a 4-6 month window of nutritional history. It is more than just a snapshot. This same evidence links nutritional deficiencies as a contributing factor to chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s, diabetes and arthritis.
