The SpectraCell Micronutrient Test is the gold standard of blood nutritional analysis. SpectaCell's exclusive Micronutrient Test is a comprehensive analysis of the body's intracellular function. It measures 35 selected vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other essential micronutrients within your white blood cells.
This analysis can reveal a person's functional nutritional statues over a much longer period of time than conventional static serum testing, thus, providing you with a more meaningful measurement than all other nutritional testing.
Micronutrients are vitamins and minerals required in small quantities that are essential to our health, development, and growth. Each nutrient known today is responsible for specific physiological functions, making them unique and irreplaceable.
Overwhelming evidence suggests that a lack of these vital nutrients has a profound impact on the body's immune system. Adequate intake of these vitamins and minerals could mean the difference between a healthy life and a life fraught with disease. Using food and appropriately targeted supplementation to bring the body to a more balanced state is a proactive step to improving long term health and vitality.
This test is offered to clients throughout the United States (some exceptions in New York state). Blood is collected at partner laboratories or may be collected at your home or office at no additional charge.
Micronutrient Analysis $490
(Includes Spectrox and Immunidex)
Micronutrient testing measures how micronutrients are actually functioning within your white blood cells. These tests allow nutritional assessment of a broad variety of clinical conditions, general wellness and the prevention of chronic diseases including arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular risk, diabetes, various immunological disorders and metabolic disorders.
The Micronutrient Analysis includes a 1 Hour phone consultation with Colleen to review your results and recommendations.
Other Tests Available from SpectraCell Laboratories
Cardio Metabolic $130
LPP Plus $115
SpectraCell’s CardioMetabolic, Pre-Diabetes, and LPP™ Plus Tests offer clinically relevant evaluation to help define risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), progression toward Type 2 Diabetes, and inflammation. These check points, along with a new CardioMetabolic Risk Assessment and Type 2 Diabetes Risk Assessment, help you understand that not just one factor contributes to the genesis and progression toward cardiovascular disease including stroke, poor blood glucose control including Type 2 Diabetes, and/ or inflammation. Test results allow doctors to know when guidance, educational referral, and/ or treatment are necessary.
Male Hormone $130
Female Hormone $130
Thyroid Plus Adrenals $130
Comprehensive male and female hormone panels that reveal the overall state of hormonal balance. Like nutrients, hormones influence all aspects of health and disease - mood, sleep, metabolism, immunity, heart health and appearance. An imbalance of one hormone can initiate cascade of events that alters other hormones, so a comprehensive look at hormone status is key. Thyroid hormones directly regulate every cell in our body as most basic functions like metabolism, emotions and thinking. We also test several proteins that affect thyroid function as well as antibodies to thyroid which can detect autoimmunity and your levels of cortisol, the stress hormone.
Telomeres are sections of genetic material at the end of each chromosome whose primary function is to prevent chromosomal “fraying” when a cell replicates. As a cell ages, its telomeres become shorter. Eventually, the telomeres become too short to allow cell replication, the cell stops dividing and will ultimately die - a normal biological process. SpectraCell’s Telomere Test can determine the length of a patient’s telomeres in relation to the patient’s age.
MTHFR Genotyping $130
MTHFR is an enzyme responsible for converting 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate to the product 5-methyltetrahydrofolate - it is involved in the metabolism of folate and homocysteine. The product of the reaction catalyzed by MTHFR converts homocysteine (a potentially toxic amino acid) to methionine (a useful and necessary amino acid).
