Cellular testing for nutrient sufficiency, antioxidant capacity, and specific protective antioxidants
Metabolism happens within cells. Cells need nutrients to be metabolically active.
The Cellular Mucronutrient Assay (CMA) tests for insufficiencies in micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) as well as amino acids, and other nutrients within immune cells. This is a reflection of long-term nutrient status not just a “snapshot” as is seen in serum nutrient tests.
An overload and accumulation of free radicals (from pollution, toxins, medication, radiation, etc) in our bodies can result in oxidative damage which plays a major role in the development of chronic and degenerative illness. Antioxidants can help protect the cells from oxidative damage.
The Redox Assay measures the overall antioxidant function of the individual’s immune cells.
The Antioxidant Protection Assay (APA) identifies specific antioxidants that significantly improve the individual’s antioxidant capacity and protect the cells from oxidative damage.
Nutrient requirements are unique to each individual so everyone would benefit from the Cellular Nutrition Assays
• Women’s health- fertility, pregnancy, lactation, perimenopause, menopause, and others
• High performance and/or severe stress
• Sports nutrition
• Pre and post -surgery
• Weight management, obesity
• Burnout, fatigue, depression, mood swings, low vitality
• Chronic conditions, and/or metabolic syndrome (increased blood pressure and blood sugar, excess body fat, abnormal cholesterol)
• Nutritional and health status optimization
Easy to understand, color-coded test results show “nutrient sufficiency,” “borderline insufficiency,” and “insufficiency”. The function and dietary sources of each insufficient and borderline insufficient nutrient are described within the test results’ commentaries.
