Impact Energy and Performance
Micronutrients are essential nutrients that are required in small amounts for human health. They include vitamins, minerals, co-factors, amino acids, metabolites, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids. These nutrients play important roles in energy production, hemoglobin synthesis, maintenance of bone health, adequate immune function, and protection of the body against oxidative stress and cellular damage.
Micronutrient testing can be beneficial for patients who experience certain symptoms, have been diagnosed with certain conditions, or are at risk for certain health problems. Testing can help identify deficiencies and allow for tailored treatment plans to improve health. Get tested if you experience or suffer from:
- Advanced age
- Stress and Fatigue
- Depression or anxiety
- Diabetes or Cardiovascular disease
- Digestive disorders with malabsorption (Celiac, Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis)
- SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth)
- Long-term use of prescription medication
- Skin problems
- Numbness or tingling in extremities
- Weakened immune system
- A diet high in processed foods or Obesity
- Intense athletic training
- Following a vegan or vegetarian diet
- Neurological symptoms (impaired memory, confusion, ataxia, loss of balance, tremors)
- Stubborn weight gain or Sudden unexplained weight loss

Optimize Your Competitive Advantage
Athletes need to regularly monitor their micronutrient status to ensure they are performing and producing energy at their best.
Micronutrients also play an important role in:
- energy production
- hemoglobin synthesis
- maintenance of bone health
- adequate immune function
- protection of body against oxidative damage
- recovery and muscle growth after strenuous training and injuries
Exercise causes wear and tear on the body that requires micronutrients for repair and maintenance. Athletes need more micronutrients than sedentary people because they are constantly breaking down and rebuilding their bodies.
