Even if you have been extremely health-conscious of your diet, it is still possible to be deficient in some of the essential nutrients your body needs to function at its best. With the convenience and availability of heavily processed foods, getting the nutrients from whole foods can be hard.
There are also some genetic factors that inhibit the absorbtion of micronutrients from the food you’re ingesting. Lacking the nutrients can interfere with basic bodily functions including water balance, nerve-signaling, digestion, enzyme function, and metabolism. Even worse, nutrient deficiencies can lead to diseases like osteoporosis and anemia. With that said, it is important to note the warning symptoms your body may be trying to signal to you that you are nutrient-deficient.Cellular testing for nutrient sufficiency, antioxidant capacity, and specific protective antioxidants
Metabolism happens within cells. Cells need nutrients to be metabolically active.
- The Cellular Mucronutrient Assay (CMA) is your tool to assess and address insufficiencies in micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) as well as amino acids, and other nutrients within immune cells. This is a reflection of long-term nutrient status not just a “snapshot” as is seen in serum nutrient tests. An overload and accumulation of free radicals (from pollution, toxins, medication, radiation, etc) in the body can result in oxidative damage which plays a major role in the development of chronic and degenerative illness. Antioxidants can help protect the cells from oxidative damage.
- The Redox Assay measures the overall antioxidant function of your patients’ immune cells.
- The Antioxidant Protection Assay (APA)identifies specific antioxidants that significantly improve your patients’ antioxidant capacity and protect their cells from oxidative damage.
