Cellular Nutrition Assays
Nutrients are essential to health. Vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and fatty acids, are utilized within cells are the “spark” behind metabolic reactions. It is vital to maintain balance between oxidant stress and antioxidant factors to prevent damage in the body.
Micronutrients are needed to counteract high levels of stress in todays’ world, including environmental pollution, toxins, and drugs, varying from person to person. Lifestyle, genetics, pregnancy, recent infection, sleep patterns, overexertion in sports, age, gender, all play a role. Nutrition assessment may play an important role in the following areas:
- Nutrition & Health status optimization with a tailored food and supplemental plan
- Weight Management, obesity
- High performance and/or severe stress
- Sports nutrition
- Women’s health, fertility, pregnancy, lactation, peri-menopause, menopause
- Burnout, fatigue, depression, mood swings, low vitality
- Chronic and metabolic conditions (increased blood pressure and blood sugar, excess body fat, abnormal cholesterol)
- Pre and Post Surgery
Cellular Micronutrient Assay (CMA) – Tests 52 Vitamins, Minerals, Amino acids and Other Nutrients.
Nutrient stores in cells reflect long-term nutritional status and have most functional impact. The test is used to analyze the direct response of your immune cells (lymphocytes) when individual micronutrients are added to them. Increased nutrient need is indicated by an increase in activity of your cells.
Thiamine (Vitamin B1)
Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)
Cobalamin (Vitamin B12)
Folate (Vitamin B9)
Nicotinamide (Niacin, Vitamin B3)
Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6)
Vitamin E (Delta-tocotrienol)
Cell Protection Test
Cell Stress Test (Redox Assay) – determines your antioxidant capacity, you cells ability to resist oxidative damage.
Antioxidant Protection Assay – identify which nutrients would work best to protect your cells, resist oxidative damage and improve your overall antioxidant capacity (Redox). Tests 48 antioxidants, botanicals, phytonutrients, anti-inflammatory, nutrients, fatty acids, and enzymes.
Botanicals, Plant Extracts, Pigments, Phytonutrients
Wild Cherry Bark
Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory Nutrients, Fatty Acids, and Enzymes
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)
Linoleic cid (omega-6)
Oleic Acid (omega-9)
Palmitoleic acid (omega-7)
Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD)
Vitamin E (Delta tocotrienol)
Your results are easy to understand and color-coded – a simple blood draw is needed. Nutrients are highlighted according to your cellular responses. Descriptions of each insufficiency nutrient and protective antioxidant are provided along with which food to emphasize to meet the increased nutrient need. Click here, to see a sample report.
