Identifying the Nutrition Gap
Do you experience fatigue, migraine or mood swings? Do you feel bloated or have difficulty losing weight? Any of these may be a result of not eating properly or not getting the right amount of nutrients from your food.
Vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, essential fatty acids, and other nutrients are essential in maintaining the normal and healthy functions of your body. Of course, lack of enough nutrients can lead to certain health concerns such as fatigue, weight gain, and sleep problems. But did you know that nutrient deficiency and toxicities are also linked to the occurrence of chronic illnesses? The nutrition gap is associated with many conditions such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and depression.
Get to the Root of the Problem with Nutritional Testing
The BioBalance Comprehensive Nutrient and Metabolic Test (Nutreval) is the most extensive diagnostic tool that helps you know your nutritional status at a cellular level. This test looks into five areas of core nutrients: antioxidants, B vitamins, digestive support, essential fatty acids, and minerals.
The Comprehensive Nutrient and Metabolic Test (Nutreval) covers these areas:
- Metabolic Analysis Profile – This assessment provides information on how your body converts carbs, protein, and fats into energy. Even though you are eating a balanced diet, deficiencies in key enzymes and nutrients may still occur with poor cellular energy production. When this happens, you may feel tired, gain weight, or even be vulnerable to certain illnesses.
- Amino Acid Analysis – Protein and amino acids are needed to help repair cells and synthesize new ones. This test analyzes the level of amino acids in your body and check for proper balance which is vital in different activities within the body including pain and inflammation control, detoxification, pH regulation, and cholesterol metabolism.
- Exposure to Toxic Metals – Toxins are inevitable, even though we strive to have an all-natural diet. With prolonged or constant exposure, these can build up in your body which may contribute to the development of illnesses such as cancer. BioBalance assesses intracellular levels of aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury and provides intervention to properly manage toxicity.
- Oxidative Stress Analysis – Oxidative stress, or the condition when there is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in your body, has been linked to various illnesses as well as aging. The Oxidative Stress Analysis assesses your levels of free radicals and antioxidant reserve, and how these can be managed through specific antioxidant and lifestyle interventions.
Prevent chronic illnesses and optimize your health by understanding your core nutrients and finding the nutrition gap. Through the Comprehensive Nutrient and Metabolic Test (Nutreval), your physician will be able to give you a solution of custom-fit supplements and food, addressing what your body really needs.
