Micronutrient Testing

At the Balanced Women we offer comprehensive Micronutrient Testing.

The Micronutrient Test tests for deficiencies in:

  • Vitamins

  • Minerals

  • Amino Acids

  • Antioxidants

  • Carbohydrate Metabolism

  • Fatty Acids

  • Metabolites

Micronutrient testing measures the body’s ability to absorb

vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other essential nutrients into your white blood cells. Useful in detecting a deficiency, the test also points to problems in absorption or dysbiosis as well as a need for nutritional and vitamin supplements.

Scientific evidence shows that vitamin deficiencies are associated with the disease processes and the overall condition of your health. Micronutrient testing takes a nutritional assessment and helps create a plan to correct any deficiency that could be negatively influencing your health. Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to suppress immune functions and contribute to chronic degenerative processes such as arthritis, cancer, Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Micronutrient Testing - Body's Ability
Micronutrient Testing - Key Role

Nearly every physiological function in your body requires micronutrients to function properly. Vitamin and minerals compounds play a key role in:

  • Strengthening the immune system
  • Reducing systemic inflammation
  • Protecting against free radical damage
  • Maintaining a healthful hormonal balance (i.e. thyroid, sex hormones, adrenal hormones, neurotransmitters/brain hormones, etc.)
  • Maintaining insulin sensitivity
  • Slowing cellular aging
  • Promoting the health of all tissue including skin, bone, brain, breast, gut, prostate, and heart
  • Protecting against the development, progression and recurrence of cancer.

You can suffer from several symptoms when you have micronutrient deficiencies but without testing, there is no way of knowing if they may be related to a deficiency or some other potential causes. Often these deficiencies can be fixed with dietary changes or supplements. At The Balanced Woman, we are committed to working with you as we identify where your need in order to optimize your custom plan for healthier living.
