Micronutrient Serum Testing
Medical research published in numerous peer-reviewed journals has scientifically documented the vital role that essential nutrients play in achieving and maintaining good health, and in preventing or treating many serious diseases. Some diseases that have been scientifically linked to nutrient imbalances include arthritis, Parkinson’s, alcoholism/substance abuse, behavioral disorders, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, chronic fatigue, muscular degeneration, diabetes, immune disorders, multiple sclerosis, stroke and osteoporosis.
Micronutrient Testing Details
What is Micronutrient Testing?
Genetix Micronutrient tests measure the function of 35 nutritional components including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids within our white blood cells. Scientific evidence shows us that analyzing the white blood cells gives us the most accurate analysis of a body’s deficiencies.
What results will I see?
Our Micronutrient lab results include an overview page with all deficiencies listed, numeric and graphic reports easily identifying deficiencies and repletion and supplementation recommendations.
What Micronutrient levels does the test identify?
for Total Antioxidant Function
Immune Response Score
Genetix Micronutrient test provides the most comprehensive nutritional analysis available by measuring functional deficiencies at the cellular level. It is an assessment of how well the body utilizes vitamins, minerals, amino/fatty acids, antioxidants, and metabolites, while conveying the body’s need for these micronutrients that enable the body to produce enzymes, hormones, and other substances essential for proper growth, development, and good health. This test provides the basis of a personalized, functional approach in addressing a broad variety of clinical conditions including arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular risk, diabetes, various immunological disorders, metabolic disorders and micronutrient deficiencies.
“Although the clinical syndromes of vitamin deficiencies are unusual in Western societies, suboptimal vitamin status is not. Because suboptimal vitamin status is associated with many chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, and osteoporosis, it is important for physicians to identify patients with poor nutrition or other reasons for increased vitamin needs.”
