Even with a balanced diet, your body might be failing to absorb adequate amounts of the minerals, vitamins and other nutrients that it needs. 
Did You Know?

By far the simplest way to slow the aging process, increase your resistance to stress and reduce your risk of disease is to make sure your body has all the nutrients it genetically requires to operate at its best.

Everyone's physiology is different, and we burn through particular nutrients at different rates. With micro nutrient testing we can tell if the individual is low in key antioxidants, co factors or amino acids that are critical to immune function and optimal metabolic function. Many tests measure nutrients in the blood, which is not adequate to tell if an individual is chronically low. Nutrients must be measured intra-cellular to provide useful data.

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.

How Can I Get Started?

To determine your nutrient status, you should schedule a free consultation with our staff at Pinnacle Health and Performance Center. We will guide you through the process of the micro-nutrient test, which employs patented, groundbreaking technology available from SpectraCell Laboratories. The results are produced in three weeks, after which Pinnacle’s health and nutrition experts will explain the results, identify your deficiencies and repletion, and recommend personalized supplementation for your optimum health and well being.
