What is SpectraCell Micronutrient Testing?
SpectraCell Micronutrient testing is a scientific method of analyzing your nutrient deficiencies at the cellular level. Their patented system measures the function of selected nutrients within your white blood cells.
It analyzes 35 vitamins, minerals, amino acids/fatty acids, antioxidants, and metabolites
Why test for Micronutrient levels?
Many conditions are impacted by your micronutrient levels, including arthritis, cardiovascular risk, diabetes, various immunological disorders, metabolic disorders, anxiety, depression, insomnia. These tests allow your nutritional assessment for a broad variety of clinical conditions, general wellness and the prevention of diseases.
