  • “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.”

    Mark Houston, M.D., M.S., SCH, ABAAM, FACP, FAHA Internal Medicine
  • “SpectraCell's micronutrient test allows me to diagnose specific functional deficiencies and subsequently compound supplements appropriate for the individual needs of my patients.”

    Michael O'Neal, Primary Care Team Physician Toronto Blue Jays – MLB
  • "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."
