Micronutrient Test (SpectraCell)


Measures 31 vitamins, minerals, amino/fatty acids, antioxidants, and metabolites and how they affect cellular function in a person



Dr. Lawenda recommends getting your micronutrients (vitamins, minerals) tested. Some assays also include testing of your amino acids and fatty acids. These are important compounds that are required for the proper functioning of every enzyme and cell in your body. Deficiencies are very common, and can lead to systemic-wide effects that can promote cancer progression (see diagram, above) and numerous chronic health conditions (i.e. insulin resistance, systemic inflammation, impaired immunity, weight gain, cardiovascular disease, cognitive/memory/mood problems, etc.)

Deficiencies are typically not associated with obvious symptoms (i.e. it’s very rare to get scurvy or a massive goiter in the modern era), but inadequate levels of these nutrients still wreak havoc throughout the body. If you don’t get your levels tested, there is no way you will know if you are deficient and the degree of the deficiency.

Testing gives you a window into this important factor of your underlying health, which enables your to take corrective steps to increase your intake of specific micronutrients. Over time, repeat testing is recommended to make sure any deficiencies have been adequately corrected.

SpectraCell Micronutrient Assay:

Scientific evidence shows that analyzing the white blood cells provides the most accurate analysis of a body’s deficiencies. SpectraCell’s Micronutrient tests measure the function of 31 nutritional components within the white blood cells. Results from these tests can provide medical practitioners with insights into how a patient can benefit from nutritional balance.

Why Is This Test Important?

The SpectraCell Micronutrient test measures the function of 31 nutritional components including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids within our white blood cells. By knowing exactly which micronutrients may be lacking in a person’s diet, patients gain greater insight into which foods and/or supplements might help them achieve nutritional balance. Nutritional balance plays a key role in optimal wellness, chronic disease prevention and managing the aging process.
