Cellular Nutrition Assays

Nutrients are essential to health.  Vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and fatty acids, are utilized within cells are the “spark” behind metabolic reactions.  It is vital to maintain balance between oxidant stress and antioxidant factors to prevent damage in the body.  

Micronutrients are needed to counteract high levels of stress in todays’ world, including environmental pollution, toxins, and drugs, varying from person to person.  Lifestyle, genetics, pregnancy, recent infection, sleep patterns, overexertion in sports, age, gender, all play a role.  Nutrition assessment may play an important role in the following areas:

  • Nutrition & Health status optimization with a tailored food and supplemental plan
  • Weight Management, obesity
  • High performance and/or severe stress
  • Sports nutrition
  • Women’s health, fertility, pregnancy, lactation, peri-menopause, menopause
  • Burnout, fatigue, depression, mood swings, low vitality
  • Chronic and metabolic conditions (increased blood pressure and blood sugar, excess body fat, abnormal cholesterol)
  • Pre and Post Surgery

Micronutrient Test

Cellular Micronutrient Assay (CMA) – Tests 52 Vitamins, Minerals, Amino acids and Other Nutrients.

Nutrient stores in cells reflect long-term nutritional status and have most functional impact.  The test is used to analyze the direct response of your immune cells (lymphocytes) when individual micronutrients are added to them.  Increased nutrient need is indicated by an increase in activity of your cells.
