Micronutrient & Antioxidant Analysis
Cellular Micronutrient Assay
This comprehensive nutritional analysis measures over 50 micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other key nutrients) at the cellular level. Compared to serum testing, which only gives a snapshot of one’s nutrient status, cellular testing provides insight into long-term, functional nutritional status.
Why is this test important?
Nutrients are vital to health and are required for every metabolic process in the body. Insufficiencies can negatively affect health and play a role in compromising immune health and setting the stage for degenerative processes, such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.
Nutrient requirements are unique to each individual and are impacted by many factors, such as diet, age, digestion and absorption, medications, stress, genetics, pregnancy, activity levels, illnesses, sleep patterns, and toxin levels. Regularly evaluating one’s micronutrient status can help to determine optimal daily nutrient intake and allow for ongoing customized support.
The Cellular Micronutrient Assay measures the following nutrients:
Thiamine (vitamin B1)
Riboflavin (vitamin B2)
Cobalamin (vitamin B12)
Folate (vitamin B9)
Nicotinamide (niacin, vitamin B3)
Pyridoxine (vitamin B6)
Vitamin E (delta-tocotrienol)
Antioxidant Protection Assay
Exposure to air pollutants, toxins, industrial chemicals, smoking, medications, ultraviolet rays, etc., can all generate harmful free radicals in the body. Even normal metabolic processes, such as eating food, can produce free radicals. An overload or accumulation of free radicals causes oxidative stress, which has been shown to be an underlying factor in the aging process, chronic inflammation, as well as in the development of degenerative diseases.
One of the body’s most important mechanisms for combating oxidative stress is by utilizing antioxidants, which can neutralize free radicals and protect cells against damage. For optimal protection, antioxidant resources must continually be restored via diet and/or supplementation.
The Antioxidant Protection Assay measures your cell’s resistance to oxidative stress, determines your overall antioxidant capacity, and provides you with specific antioxidant nutrients that can improve your antioxidant capacity and best protect your cells from oxidative damage.
The Antioxidant Protection Assay measures the following antioxidants:
Botanicals, Plant Extracts, Pigments, and Phytonutrients
Antioxidant and Anti-inflammatory Nutrients, Fatty Acids and Enzymes
Wild Cherry Bark
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)
Oleic Acid (omega-9)
Palmitoleic acid (omega-7)
Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD)
Vitamin E (Delta tocotrienol)
Blood – A test kit will be mailed to you along with instructions for having your blood drawn at a participating lab. Please note an additional blood draw fee will be required.
New: If you are local to Village Green, blood draws are now available by appointment in Suite 202A (across the parking lot from Village Green). Contact Tanisha (240-398-4546) or Raven (812-612-1515) to schedule. (Fee: $65)
