Micronutrient Testing

Get Started

Are you feeling run down and are unsure why?

Maybe you are experiencing symptoms of hair loss or brittle nails. Are you getting sick constantly and feel that your immune system isn’t as robust as it could be? Perhaps you are taking medications and feel like they just aren’t working to their full potential.

Have you ever considered that nutrient deficiencies could be to blame? 

Vitamin and mineral deficiencies can occur even if you’re eating a balanced diet, getting adequate exercise, and are taking a multivitamin. This may be due to a variety of factors such as:

  • Absorption Issues: deficiencies may occur if your body is unable to absorb vitamins, minerals and antioxidants properly. Absorption difficulties are also quite common as we age. 
  • Biochemical Individuality: Each and everyone of us is metabolically and biochemically unique, which means that not all individuals require the same amount of nutrients compared to another
  • Prescription Medications: Some prescription medications can interfere with nutrient absorption, while others require specific nutrients in order to work to their full potential. 

Micronutrient testing with NourishRX will measure 31 vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids your body has – all of which play a vital role in your health.

Resolving nutrient deficiencies starts with a reliable and robust assessment of your individual nutrition status. 


Micronutrient Testing May Help You if…

You’re concerned you may have a deficiency in certain nutrients because of dietary restrictions or allergies

You are taking medications that may contribute to depletion of micronutrients (birth control, antacids, antidepressants, statins, or antibiotics)

You find that you are often coming down with a cold or other illnesses and wonder if nutrient deficiencies may be to blame

You are experiencing gastrointestinal issues such as constipation and bloating which can contribute to micronutrient deficiencies

You are in eating disorder recovery and knowing how your body is functioning will help motivate you to continue with treatment

You’ve had serum blood tests to check for nutrient status, but no one has checked your long term (4-6 month) nutrient status before

It feels like part of your body just isn’t functioning like you would expect it to (hormonally, immune system, nervous system, etc.)

You want to make sure your body is functioning optimally for overall health and wellbeing.

Traditional blood tests measure the amount of nutrients present in the blood at a moment in time, and are often unreliable indicators of true nutrient status since blood levels do not always reflect micronutrient deficiencies. 

Instead, micronutrient testing with NourishRX will provide you with information about your long term nutritional status across 31 vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids. We’ll also provide you with a roadmap for reversing your nutrient deficiencies with supplementation you can be confident will support your individual needs.

What is Micronutrient Testing?

What are micronutrients?

In contrast to MACROnutrients (carbohydrates, protein, and fat), which the body uses to harness energy, MICROnutrients are the chemical elements (vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, etc.) the body requires for all of its various functions. 

A micronutrient deficiency often results in poor body functioning because the body’s cells are unable to perform their jobs. This can result in inflammation, poor gut health, low immunity, hormonal imbalances, fatigue, and more. Micronutrient deficiencies may also be asymptomatic, meaning you may not notice some or any negative effects even though your body cells are struggling to keep up.

What are antioxidants?

When you think of antioxidants, you might think of pomegranate juice or red wine. It’s true that richly colored produce is often a source of antioxidants, or polyphenols. But the body also uses other antioxidants, like Coenzyme Q10, Glutathione and Vitamin E to keep biochemical pathways in the body functioning normally. 

Antioxidants help the body repair cellular damage that accumulates with wear and tear. They may be depleted if you are taking certain medications. 

What are amino acids?

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein molecules. Some amino acids the body can synthesize on its own. Some amino acids, called “essential” amino acids, need to be consumed from food or supplements. If the body does not have an adequate supply of amino acids, it will not be able to create proteins needed to support things like reproductive health, mental health, immune system integrity, digestive health and more.

What’s holding you back from nutrient testing with Nourishrx?

I already eat a balanced diet and take a multivitamin

Even if your diet is nutritionally balanced, or you take a multivitamin, it’s possible that you may still experience micronutrient deficiencies because of a dysfunction in how your body digests and absorbs nutrients or your genetic predisposition for deficiencies.

My physician can run labs to test for nutrient deficiencies 

While it’s so important to stay up to date with your medical care through your physician, micronutrient testing with NourishRX provides more reliable insight into your nutritional status than what you’ll get at your doctor’s office. Spectracell uses lymphocytes (white blood cells) to measure the functioning of cells over time, which provides a long term look at nutrient deficiencies and how they are affecting your body on the cellular level. This is very different from serum blood tests (like your doctor would order) which measure the amount of a nutrient in the bloodstream at a moment in time. 

Micronutrient Testing isn’t covered by insurance

Even though this test is not fully covered by insurance, you can use your HSA/FSA funds as payment or set up a 3-month payment plan for smaller payments over time. Plus, you can combine micronutrient testing with individualized Medical Nutrition Therapy with one of the NourishRX dietitians, which may be covered by insurance depending on your plan.
