Micro-Nutrient Tests for Better Health and General Well-being
Did you know that your optimal well-being, effective management of the aging process, and prevention of chronic disease are all dependent on your nutrition? Studies suggest that
deficiencies of minerals, vitamins and antioxidants can suppress the functionality of the immune system, which contributes to the degenerative process. Pinnacle Health
and Performance Center has well trained staff to guide you through the crucial micro-nutrient tests that will enable you to establish nutritional deficiencies that hinder your overall
health and well-being, and assist you in interpreting the results to come up with a proper and personalized nutrition supplementation program.
Why is the Micro-Nutrient Test Important?
Unlike other nutrient absorption tests, Pinnacle’s micro-nutrient tests determine whether the nutrient's you eat are functioning properly within your body. These tests help to establish the possible reasons
why your metabolism may not be performing optimally. One of the ways that your metabolism can be affected is the inability of your body to appropriately process macro-nutrients like
proteins, carbohydrates and fats, which interferes with the energy production cycle. As a result, the cells in your body, including those in the immune system and liver, are unable to
effectively perform their functions. Your metabolic function may also be affected by the body’s inability to regulate glucose, causing an imbalance in the production of insulin,
triglycerides and other markers.
Lack of the proper nutrients inhibits your normal metabolic function. The body systems and functions that are dependent on the lacking nutrients are unable to operate at the ideal rate,
which results in various conditions including fatigue, difficulty in gaining muscle and increased weight gain, among others. Poor nutrition can also contributes to a variety of other
chronic illnesses including diabetes, heart disease, cancer, stroke, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, high blood pressure, dementia, and infections.
While these dysfunctions are not entirely dependent on nutrition, there are some deficiencies that affect them either directly or indirectly. As such, you should perform nutritional
tests to identify your unique biochemical composition, since your micro-nutrient requirements will be different from those of another individual.
In addition, you may consume a balanced diet, but your body can still fail to absorb adequate portions of minerals, vitamins or other essential nutrients, leading to deficiencies. The body’s
rate of nutrient absorption changes with age due to adjustments in micro-nutrient requirements, which are in turn, influenced by lifestyle factors like alcohol, smoking, prescription
drugs, and sedentary habits.
