What is Micronutrient Testing?

Micronutrient Testing

“Micronutrients” is a blanket term for all of the positive solutions found in food or supplements that are essential to how the body functions. Some examples of micronutrients include:

  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Antioxidants
  • Amino acids
  • Metabolites

Micronutrient deficiencies may lead to a variety of serious health complications, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Arthritis
  • Chronic pain
  • Inflammation

How Does Micronutrient Testing Work?

A micronutrient test is a non-invasive, low pain diagnostic technique. During the test, a small sample of blood is taken and analyzed for key vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. Some of the specific substances that may be tested for include:

  • Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, E, C, D and K
  • Folates
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Zinc
  • Copper

Certain issues can contribute to a micronutrient deficiency. While not a deficiency themselves, these issues can deprive the body of key nutrients and speed up the process, making a micronutrient test necessary. These issues include:

  • Poor diet
  • Lack of exercise
  • Smoking
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Aging
  • Chronic disease

Additionally, there is some variance among people when it comes to micronutrients. What one person may be naturally deficient in, another may be naturally over-productive.
