Is your body getting the nutrients it needs?

Micronutrient status is just one – but critical – piece of the diagnostic puzzle. Nearly every physiological system in our body requires micronutrients to function properly, and deficiencies create the potential for long-term chronic disease and illness, affecting quality of life over time.

CONDITIONS AFFECTED BY MICRONUTRIENT STATUS

  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Asthma
  • Arthritis
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Stress
  • Poor Sleep/Insomnia
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Brain Fog
  • Autoimmune Conditions
  • Cancer
  • Heart Disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Hormonal Imbalance

What causes these deficiencies?

BIOCHEMICAL INDIVIDUALITY

Because each of us is metabolically and biochemically unique, the micronutrient requirements for one person may be quite different than the requirements of another.

ABSORPTION

Although you may eat a balanced diet, if you do not absorb vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and/or other essential micronutrients properly, you can have deficiencies.

CHRONIC ILLNESS

Health conditions such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, fatigue and multiple sclerosis, to name a few, can be affected directly or indirectly by micronutrient deficiencies.

AGING

Our micronutrient requirements at age 30 are quite different from our requirements at age 40, 50 and beyond. Absorption difficulties, especially of vitamin B12, quite commonly occur as we age.

LIFESTYLE

Excessive physical activity, prescription drugs, smoking, alcohol and sedentary habits all impact micronutrient demands.
