technology developed by SpectraCell laboratories measures the intracellular
function of selected vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other
essential micronutrients within your white blood cells (lymphocytes).
Since lymphocytes carry an individual's nutritional status over
a period of time, the results obtained, uncover deficiencies that
standard serum tests may miss. If not corrected, such deficiencies
could impair your health by contributing to the development and/or
progression of chronic disease.

is overwhelming evidence documenting that vitamin,mineral, antioxidant
and other essential micronutrient deficiencies supress the function
of the immune system. This contributes to degenerative processes
leading to disease such as arthritus, cancer, heart disease and
diabetes, to name a few. Most people may be deficient in these micronutrients
and not even know it. These deficiencies can contribute to disease
processes and keep you from feeling your best.
each of us is metabolically and biochemically different, the micronutrient
requirements for one person are often different than the requirements
of another. Even if you eat a balanced diet, exercise and take a
multi-vitamin, you still may not be supplying your body what it
needs based on your genetic make-up.
