Micronutrient Testing for Health Assessment
May 03, 2013 12:58PM
Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to suppress immune function and contribute to chronic degenerative processes such as arthritis, cancer, Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular disease and diabetes (Journal of the American Medical Association (June 19, 2002-Vol 287, No 23).
A nutritional blood test profile measures the functionality of micronutrients within the white blood cells. Micronutrient testing, like that offered at Any Lab Test Now in Sarasota, is a way to proactively identify and correct any nutritional deficiencies, assess cell metabolism and utilization, and balance the body naturally. The non-fasting tests, which do not require a physician’s order, measure the biochemical function of 32 vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants.
Patrick McManus, owner of Any Lab Test Now in Sarasota, states that the results from the micronutrient test are easy to read and understand, and offer specific repletion instructions. “We want to remove roadblocks – including accessibility and affordability – to the tests, and allow people to take control of their health and well-being,” he said.
