Nutritional status is the foundation for health & performance.
Do you eat at least 2 cups of fruit and 3 cups of vegetables every day?
Do you eat fish at least twice a week?
Do you get at least 15 minutes of sunlight directly on your skin every day?
Do you drink more than 1-2 alcoholic drinks per day?
Do you take any medications that can interfere with nutrient absorption (like birth control pills, reflux meds, or cholesterol meds)?
Are you at a stage of life that requires extra nutrition (pregnancy, breastfeeding, adolescence, etc.)?
If you answered “no” to the first 3 questions or “yes” to the last 3, there’s a good chance you’re missing out on some vital nutrients and could benefit from micronutrient testing + repletion. Heck, even if you have the most impeccable diet in the world, there are a thousand things that can affect vitamin + mineral absorption, including age, lifestyle, and genetics.
Micronutrients (including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, and more) are responsible for a vast number of body processes and a lack of any of them can cause your body to work in overdrive. It can cause some pretty funky symptoms, or milder ones you may not even notice. Ensuring adequate nutrition is a vital step in the path to a healthy, vibrant, energetic life.
There’s a joke in the nutrition world that taking supplements or multivitamins at random will do little more than give you very expensive pee. There’s quite a bit of truth in that statement, but targeted supplementation to replete deficiencies can make the difference between disease and optimal health. It can be the difference between fatigue, lethargy, pain, and illness, and energy, vibrancy, and vitality. Which would you choose?
We test for:
Micronutrient testing is easy – when you’re ready to test:
- We’ll send a testing kit right to you. You’ll take it to a blood draw facility, get some blood drawn, and send the kit off.
- When the results are ready (usually about 3-4 weeks), we’ll go over your results, addressing in depth any deficiencies or borderline deficiencies, then come up with a customized plan to fix them (aka “repletion”) through food and/or supplements as needed.
It’s that easy!
