Comprehensive Nutrition Test

Nutrients are essential to your health and well-being. Imbalances in certain nutrients may contribute to a range of illnesses. Nutritional imbalances may contribute to problems in the following areas: hormone function, neurotransmitter function, food digestion, skin health, bone formation, energy production and antioxidant function.

Most of the nutrients that the body requires are essential. This means that your body cannot manufacture them and you need to obtain them from your diet. Processed foods and modern agricultural practices have tended to deplete essential nutrients from food and therefore many of today’s diets lack an adequate complement of essential nutrients. Living in a modern world has delivered the body an array of new challenges: increased stress, nutritionally-low convenience foods and a chemical-laden environment. All these factors impact negatively on our vitality and place additional strain on the body, increasing its nutritional requirements. Research has consistently shown that maintaining adequate levels of essential nutrients allows the body to function at an optimal level and aids good health and promotes faster recovery from illness.

The Comprehensive Nutrition Test provides comprehensive information on an individual’s nutritional status. It tests for a combination of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, digestive enzymes, essential fatty acids and specialized nutrients. The nutritional status of an individual depends on a number of factors, the main ones being diet, digestive efficiency and nutrient absorption. This test assists you to fully assess your nutritional status as well as your digestive capacity.

The test report will provide you with a full nutrient profile, including information on its food and environmental sources, possible deficiency signs and possible toxicity signs.
