What is Unique about SpectraCell Micronutrient Test?
Instead of simply using standard blood tests, SpectraCell uses intracellular measurements to determine if nutrient transportation, utilization, and absorption are proper for you. The standard blood test is based on serum, and the levels of nutrients in blood serum do not reflect the metabolism status inside your cells.
The functional portion of the SpectraCell test evaluates your micronutrients work in your body. The test goes beyond the nutrients in your bloodstream and measures the micronutrient’s impact on cellular function.
We take living white blood cells obtained from a blood draw and subject them to many different nutritional evaluation environments. Lymphocytes include your full genetic makeup and are a picture of long-term nutrient status. In addition, lymphocytes show your cellular health throughout your body.
Lymphocytes give a picture of your nutrient intake over time, not just days or weeks. When you take supplements, it takes days or weeks before blood will show you nutritional results.
Nutrients all work together, and a comprehensive lab test is much better in measuring individual micronutrients. SpectraCell’s micronutrient profile scans the level of 33 vitamins, amino acids, minerals, fatty acids, metabolites, and antioxidants to chart deficiency patterns.
Proprietary: SpectraCell offers the patented Spectrox® that charts antioxidant capacity and immunidex that measures immune system functions as a part of a micronutrient profile.
