Destination Beauty MedSpa encourages patients to receive micronutrient testing to ensure quality physical and mental health.
Importance of micronutrient testing
Destination Beauty MedSpa has noted that deficiencies in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals are linked to suppression of the proper function of the immune system. This improper functioning of the immune system can lead and contribute to various degenerative processes including:
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Among Others
It is important to ensure you are getting the right amount of nutrients you need as many people are micronutrient deficient without even knowing it.
Destination Beauty MedSpa has gathered research stating that 50% of individuals who take multivitamins are still nutritionally deficient even with added supplementation.
While standard serum tests are able to measure levels of nutrients, they lack necessary information about how well these nutrients are being utilized within the body.
Because of this, Destination Beauty MedSpa administers exclusive micronutrient testing that measures a variety of significant factors including the status of intracellular vitamin, mineral, antioxidant, and fatty/amino acids occurring within the individual’s white blood cells. These tests are able to successfully describe how efficiently nutrients being utilized at a cellular level, a trait lacking in most other standard micronutrient tests.
Causes of micronutrient deficiencies
All individuals are unique biochemically and metabolically, making micronutrient requirements vary largely from person to person.
Micronutrient deficiencies may still occur in individuals who eat a well balanced diet if the consumed vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants are not absorbed properly by the body.
As we age our micronutrient requirements begin to change. Our ability to properly absorb certain nutrients commonly reduces overtime.
A variety of lifestyle factors can contribute to and impact your micronutrient levels and needs including:
- Prescription Drugs
- Excessive Physical Activity
- Physical/Emotional/Environmental Stressors
Micronutrient deficiencies can affect certain health conditions either directly or indirectly such as:
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
Micronutrient test results provided by Destination Beauty MedSpa give patients the information they need to start creating their own personalized repletion and supplementation program under the guidance of the certified and expert staff at DB MedSpa.
