Micronutrient Testing

Are you nutrient deficient? Is your multivitamin working? Test to see if your vitamin levels are the best they can be!

“Although the clinical syndromes of vitamin deficiencies are unusual in Western societies, suboptimal vitamin status is not. Because suboptimal vitamin status is associated with many chronic diseases including cardiovascular diseases, cancer and osteoporosis, it is important for physicians to identify patients with poor nutrition or other reasons for increased vitamin needs”

Lipoprotein Particle

When we get our annual blood work, most labs only test 4 numbers: Total Cholesterol, LDL, HDL and Triglycerides. It has been reported that up to 50 percent of those who have suffered heart attacks had “normal” cholesterol numbers.

Most of us have been taught about the importance of maintaining a healthy cholesterol level, say under 200. Some of us even understand the difference between LDL (“bad” cholesterol) and HDL (“good” cholesterol).

Vitamin D Status

Vitamin D is produced in the skin via the UVb rays in sunlight. What is the most important to note is the amount of vitamin D that the body naturally produces with sunlight. Why is the daily recommended dose of vitamin D is 400 units when your body will make 10,000 units of D with full exposure in only 30 minutes. Granted this amount is achieved when the sun is at it’s highest point in the sky, you have to wonder what other roles this important nutrient plays in the body.
