What Are Micronutrients?
“Micronutrients” is a blanket term for all of the positive solutions found in food or supplements that are essential to how the body functions. Some examples of micronutrients include: Vitamins, Minerals, Antioxidants, Amino acids, and Metabolites.
What is Micronutrient Testing?
There is variance among people when it comes to micronutrients; while one person may be naturally deficient in something, another may be naturally over-productive. Each person’s body is unique in its own way and that complexity requires an individualized healthcare approach as the only way to achieve optimal results.
Forum Health Coppell’s Micronutrient tests measure the function of 35 nutritional components including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids within our white blood cells; scientific evidence shows us that analyzing the white blood cells gives us the most accurate analysis of a body’s deficiencies. Take a look at what we test and sample results.
Take Back Control
Are you in control of your health, or is it controlling you?
There is overwhelming evidence that vitamin deficiencies are associated with the chronic disease process and the overall condition of one’s health.
- Do you find yourself feeling stressed, tired and maybe a little depressed?
- Do you take prescription medicines to alleviate symptoms of certain conditions, but wonder why the condition exists at all?
- Do you want to boost your immune system now, to possibly prevent chronic disease later?
Take back control, be proactive, be healthy… get tested today to learn how you can reverse your unique deficiencies through dietary changes and supplements.
“Inadequate intake or subtle deficiencies in several vitamins are risk factors for chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and osteoporosis.”
Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), June 19, 2002 – Vol. 287, No 23
