Nutritional Status, the level and interaction of Vitamin & Mineral status within our bodies, plays a vital role in maintaining our health, resistance to disease, improving and sustaining the function of our immune systems and enhancing athletic performance.There is overwhelming evidence that vitamin and mineral deficiencies are associated with chronic disease processes and the overall condition of one's health. Diseases such as Arthritis, Cancer, Diabetes, and Cardiovascular Disease are all influenced by the micronutrient status of the body. Proper Hormonal Balance, PMS, Menopause, Pregnancy, Reproductive Health, and preventing or slowing the development of Osteoporosis are all dependent on the body's micronutrient vitamin and mineral status. Being a better athlete is dependent on the micronutrient vitamin and mineral status of the body. An athlete needs not only the proper amount of protein for muscle rebuilding, carbohydrates for energy renewal, fats for nerve function, but also the correct ratio of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants for complete balance. Correct micronutrient nutritional status plays an integral role in cellular energy production and muscle recovery and for the endurance athlete can make a difference in winning, losing, or even being able to complete their event! So, the question that we need to ask ourselves is "Given my personal medical history, lifestyle, and genetics, what supplements should I be taking?" The answer; Micronutrient Nutritional Analysis, with a simple blood sample, to determine which vitamin and minerals your particular body is missing, and to then choose these supplements based on your individualized nutritional deficiencies. Micronutrient Nutritional Analysis by Spectracell Laboratories utilizes your body's own white blood cells to identify vitamin and mineral deficiencies that are unique to you, a comprehensive test that identifies 32 nutrients plus antioxidants.
