SpectraCell Micronutrient Test
The SpectraCell test measures functional deficiencies at the cellular level.
It measures how well the body utilizes 31 vitamins, minerals, amino/fatty acids, antioxidants, and metabolites.
Why use the SpectraCell Micronutrient test?
It measures the functional level and capability of micronutrients present within white blood cells. This provides a long term assessment (4-6 months).
Why measure nutrient status?
Most metabolic processes in the body require micronutrients, and research suggests that micronutrient deficiencies can contribute to degenerative processes such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
Evaluating micronutrient status can be the first step in identifying metabolic challenges as well as shedding light on the possible underlying causes of complex chronic conditions.

Who should use a micronutrient test?
Clinical studies spanning 50 years have demonstrated that micronutrient deficiencies can adversely affect health. These deficiencies can lead to chronic disease and reduced immune health at any stage in life, particularly if the micronutrient deficiencies persist.Clinical Applications:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Neurological disorders/Alzheimer’s
- Autism and other spectrum disorders
- Mood disorders
- Fertility issues
- Weight issues
- Sports performance optimization
- Total Antioxidant Function
- Immune Response Score
