Each of us questions what vitamins and nutrients do I need? So we take what we take. But are we know to pick and choose? Did you know 50% of people taking multivitamins are micronutrient deficient, despite supplementation? The one size fits all approach to health is definitely not true. Extensive scientific and clinical studies spanning 50 years have repeatedly demonstrated that micronutrient deficiencies adversely affect health. These deficiencies can create a setting for chronic disease and compromised immune health at any stage of life. Overwhelming evidence reveals that micronutrient deficiencies are associated with inflammation and chronic illness affecting physical and mental health, and ultimately the quality of life.
Today, there is finally a state of the art technology that provides the most comprehensive nutrient analysis which measures functional deficiencies at the cellular level. This assessment of how well the body utilizes 31 vitamins, minerals, amino/fatty acids, antioxidants and metabolites, while expressing the body’s need for these micronutrients that enable the production of enzymes, hormones, and other substances essential for proper growth, development and health.
Taking the test is the first step, but it takes having a practitioner who truly understands the connection between vitamin deficiencies and chronic disease and knows how to replace the vitamins and nutrients in the most absorbable and bioavailable way. A practitioner with a lot of experience with this vitamin and nutrient test can piece together the nutrients that are lacking and the effect that has on many different systems and processes in the body. Then the nutrients can be optimized and the systems they effect will be improved. Many of these nutrients play a role in detoxification, our energy production and our ability to fight toxins. It really does all come down to how well your body is optimized with all of its nutrients.
