Micronutrient Testing

Health begins at the cellular level

Since the body is comprised of approximately 73 trillion cells, the cumulative effect of cellular deficiencies profoundly affects health and well-being. A person’s entire state of health begins with a single cell. Aging and disease are typically presented as different processes when they are in fact, synonymous with each other – both representing what started as a slow, insidious malnutrition of the cell. Failure to address cellular deficiencies leads to chronic illness. Fortunately, cellular deficiency does not have to be a normal consequence of aging.

Medicine now recognizes that every patient is biochemically unique. At the cellular level, nutritional status varies profoundly from person to person, and even in the same person throughout their lifetime. What better way to determine micronutrient deficiencies than using a patient’s own cells as a control? 

Spectracell’s Micronutrient Test (MNT) will tell you exactly the micronutrients in which a patient is deficient. It evaluates how 31 different vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants are working within a person’s cells. But it goes even further – The MNT will tell how well cells can withstand oxidative stress, how well cells are metabolizing carbohydrates and how adeptly cells function when launching an immune response.

Armed with this information, you can develop a targeted supplementation regimen based on the results. Your patients’ repletion plan will be unique to their personal biochemistry at this point in their life. Once cellular deficiencies are corrected, symptoms improve and patients often experience systemic benefit.

The one-size-fits-all approach to clinical nutrition is an outdated model. Find out exactly what your patients need. 

Our Science

  • “SpectraCell Micronutrient Test is a unique, scientifically-based nutrient evaluation of specific deficiencies that allows for targeted treatment. The detection of micronutrient deficiencies using this test offers a functional and biochemically unique approach to the prevention and treatment of many diseases in which the root cause originated with nutritional deficiency and subsequent downstream of cellular dysfunction and illness.”

  • "As an interventional cardiologist and electrophysiologist dedicated to the advancement of cardiovascular health, I have come to appreciate the need for individualizing our approach to patient care. I have relied heavily upon SpectraCell's Micronutrient Test for the better part of the last decade. It gives me the ability to treat patients on a targeted and individualized level, thus eliminating the guesswork."
