Micronutrient Testing at Eulo Chiropractic Center
Some of the most influential elements in our lives are those we're not typically aware of -- including the tiny but significant amounts of substances known as micronutrients in our bodies. These nutrients are absolutely critical for normal cellular function, which in turn is absolutely critical for your health and well-being. Here at Eulo Chiropractic Center, we're always working on news ways we can help you optimize that health. That's why we're proud to proclaim that we're now offering micronutrient testing at our Sewell NJ clinic.
The Role of Micronutrients in Your Health and Wellness
Your body makes use of nutrients on two different scales, the macro and micro. Macronutrients are those major categories of substances you must consume in quantity on a daily basis, such as proteins, carbohydrates, fats and such common minerals as potassium, sodium, calcium and magnesium. By contrast, micronutrients are necessary only in small quantities -- but those quantities need to be sufficient, and present in the right balances if you want to enjoy good health. Examples of micronutrients include:
- Fat-soluble vitamins such as Vitamins A, D, E and K
- Water-soluble vitamins such as Vitamins C and various B-complex vitamins
- Trace minerals such as selenium, iodine, manganese, copper, iron, chromium and zinc
These micronutrients convey vital benefits for sustaining cellular and metabolic processes. Perhaps the most common examples are the antioxidant power of many vitamins and the way the B vitamins aid in energy production and usage. A micronutrient deficiency can sometimes produce similarly powerful negative effects, including thyroid goiter from insufficient iodine and anemia caused by iron deficiency. But the effects of micronutrient deficiencies can also be quite subtle. Since each body is unique in the way it absorbs and uses micronutrients, you need to know exactly what's happening in your body so you can correct it. Micronutrient testing makes that possible.
Evaluation and Treatment From Our Sewell NJ Chiropractor
Our Sewell NJ chiropractor can use micronutrient testing to get precise readings on the levels of 35 different nutritional components, including those tricky micronutrients. A simple blood test allows us to check the current growth and function of your blood cells when they're given optimal micronutrient supplies. As each micronutrient supplement is eliminated from the testing, we can tell where your cells suffer reduced function -- and that's the micronutrient you need help with. If you're deficient in micronutrients, don't panic. Our chiropractor's nutritional counseling and supplementation can equip you with the precise mix of micronutrients your individual body needs.
