You lead a mostly healthy lifestyle yet you struggle with weight loss, fatigue, depression and age-related changes in your body. If something seems missing, maybe it is. This is where Micronutrient testing can help. Because each of us is metabolically and biochemically unique, the micronutrient requirements (vitamins, minerals and other supplements) may be quite different from one person to another.
What makes us all different?
Biochemical individuality – Your micronutrient requirements may be quite different from others due to:
Absorption: Although you may eat a balanced diet, you may not properly absorb vitamins, minerals and or anti-oxidants.
Chronic illness: health conditions such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, fatigue, to name a few can be directly or indirectly affected by micronutrient deficiencies.
Aging: Our micronutrient requirements differ depending on our age. A 20 year old has different requirements than a 70 year old.
Lifestyle: physical activity, prescription drugs, smoking, alcohol and physical/emotional/environmental stressors all impact our micronutrient status and needs.
Why is MICRONUTRIENT status important?
Nutrition has a global influence on our wellbeing. Micronutrient status is a reflection of our dietary intake and/or metabolism of our intake. Deficiencies we have today create the potential for long term chronic illness which affects our quality of life over time. Overwhelming evidence reveals that micronutrient deficiencies are associated with inflammation and chronic disease, therefore affecting physical and mental health, and ultimately, quality of life.
