Micronutrient Testing (MNT)
Is your body receiving the proper nutrients?
A micronutrient is an element or substance that exists in the body in trace amounts. However, micronutrients are vital to proper human growth, development and overall wellness. Micronutrients are broken up into two categories: vitamins and minerals. Micronutrients help with the regulation of bone density, heartbeat, metabolism and cellular PH. A micronutrient deficiency can stunt growth in children and increase the risk that adults have for a host of diseases. Each micronutrient is crucial to ensuring and promoting optimal cell function. The first step to discovering if your body has enough micronutrients is by identifying any possible nutritional deficiencies. Once the deficiencies are identified, it is important to correct these deficiencies through a long-term maintenance plan to achieve optimal health.
This is where the Micronutrient testing comes in. The Micronutrient Test (MNT) measures the levels of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids in an individual’s blood. The test is looking specifically at the levels of micronutrients within white blood cells. Then, the test will determine how all of these elements are functioning together at a cellular level. The MNT will generate a report that will identify all of the deficiencies present in the patient’s body.
Micronutrient deficiencies can exacerbate normal, everyday problems such as stress, depression and energy level. However, on a larger scale, there is overwhelming evidence showing that nutrient deficiencies can hinder the immune system. This can lead to chronic disease, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s and arthritis. Without properly diagnosing the level of micronutrients in the body, a patient can never know how to adjust their diet and lifestyle to ensure a healthier and longer life.
