SpectraCell Micronutrient Testing

Individualized Testing to Determine What Nutrients Your Body Needs

Health and fitness are important, and more and more people are adopting a healthy lifestyle these days. People often track macronutrients like proteins, carbohydrates, and fats diligently, but sadly, micronutrients are often overlooked, even by the most health-conscious ones.

Micronutrients include vitamins and minerals, and they are extremely important to keep the body functioning optimally. Vitamins are vital for energy production and immune function, while minerals play a key role in growth and bone health. Getting too much or too little micronutrients can have harmful effects on your body.

At You Only Younger, we offer SpectraCell’s Micronutrient Testing to help evaluate your nutritional status. As the leading integrative medicine clinic in Texas, we are committed to helping you lead a healthy lifestyle.

Why is Micronutrient Testing Important?

All developmental and metabolic processes in the body require micronutrients. Even subtle deficiencies can contribute to health problems like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, and even cancer.

Micronutrient testing is the first step in identifying metabolic deficiencies that could potentially shed light on complex chronic conditions.

Why Choose SpectraCell’s Micronutrient Testing?

SpectraCell’s Micronutrient Testing is an innovative evaluation of nutritional status. Unlike other traditional tests, which only check nutrient levels outside the cell, SpectraCell assesses how a person’s white blood cells utilize 33 vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, and antioxidants. It takes a person’s cellular biochemistry into account, which other tests don’t.


SpectraCell’s Micronutrient Testing Uses Intracellular Measurements

Standard blood tests check serum levels of nutrients, which do not show what’s going on inside the cells. Serum levels outside the cell may show normal nutrient levels, while there may be deficiencies inside the cells.

SpectraCell Micronutrient Testing uses intracellular measurements to evaluate nutrient absorption, transport, and utilization.

How Is It Different?

Unlike other tests that measure the nutrient levels in the bloodstream, SpectraCell evaluates how micronutrients function in the body. It measures how micronutrients impact cellular function and not how much of it is present in the blood.

Lymphocyte-based Testing

Lymphocytes are white blood cells vital to the body’s immune system and contain the complete genetic makeup of an individual. SpectraCell Micronutrient Testing subjects white blood cells from your blood to various nutritional evaluation environments. Hence, it helps evaluate the long-term nutrient status and overall cellular health throughout the body.

SpectraCell’s Micronutrient Testing Offers Long-term Results

SpectraCell Micronutrient Testing uses lymphocyte testing, which reflects your long-term nutrient intake. It reflects your nutrient intake over many weeks and not days or hours. On the other hand, standard blood tests check serum micronutrient levels, which can fluctuate daily.
