Wondering what you might be deficient in? Tired of tests that lack accuracy?

So what do you get for the money you spend?

Vitamin testing: 
  • Vitamin A

    Vit A deficiency

    Vitamin A deficiency can result from inadequate intake, fat malabsorption, or liver disorders. Deficiency impairs immunity and hematopoiesis and causes rashes and typical ocular effects (eg, xerophthalmia, night blindness). Diagnosis is based on typical ocular findings and low vitamin A levels
  • Vitamin B1

    B1 Deficiency

    Thiamine deficiency is a medical condition of low levels of thiamine (vitamin B1). A severe and chronic form is known as beriberi. There are two main types in adults: wet beriberi, and dry beriberi. Wet beriberi affects the cardiovascular system resulting in a fast heart rate, shortness of breath, and leg swelling
  • Vitamin B2

    Riboflavin

    vitamin B2 (riboflavin) deficiency include sore throat, redness and swelling of the lining of the mouth and throat, cracks or sores on the outsides of the lips and at the corners of the mouth, inflammation and redness of the tongue, and a moist, scaly skin inflammation.
  • Vitamin B3

    Niacin

    include fatigue, indigestion, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, mouth sores, a swollen bright red tongue, poor circulation, and depressed mood. Cracked scaly skin that is highly sensitive to the sun is another symptom of vitamin B3 deficiency
  • Vitamin B6 (this is especially important for brain health!)

    B6

    Vitamin B6 deficiency is associated with microcytic anemia, electroencephalographic abnormalities, dermatitis with cheilosis (scaling on the lips and cracks at the corners of the mouth) and glossitis (swollen tongue), depression and confusion, and weakened immune function.
  • Vitamin B5

    B5 deficiency

    Vitamin B5 deficiency is rare, but may include symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia, depression, irritability, vomiting, stomach pains, burning feet, and upper respiratory infections.
  • Vitamin C

    Vit C

    More extreme cases are scurvy of course but for those on carnivore who are worried this is a great nutrient to test – symptoms of weakness, anemia, gum disease, and skin problems. This is because vitamin C is needed for making collagen, an important component in connective tissues
  • Vitamin D3

    Vit D

    Vitamin D is often called the “sunshine vitamin” because the body can naturally create it in the skin when exposed to sunlight. This type is called vitamin D3, as opposed to vitamin D, which naturally occurs in some plants, animals, and fungi. Despite the supposed ease of absorbing this vitamin, medical experts estimate about one billion people have vitamin D3 deficiencies. These can develop if a person is not getting outside enough, wears sunblock too often, has more melanin in their skin (darker skin acts as a sun blocker), eats a vegan diet or has milk allergies, or has an underlying condition that causes malabsorption. A variety of symptoms can indicate a vitamin D3 deficiency
  • Vitamin E

    Vit E deficiency

    Vitamin E needs some fat for the digestive system to absorb it. Vitamin E deficiency can cause nerve and muscle damage that results in loss of feeling in the arms and legs, loss of body movement control, muscle weakness, and vision problems. Another sign of deficiency is a weakened immune system.
  • Vitamin K1

    Deficiency

    The main function of all types of vitamin K is to activate proteins that serve important roles in blood clotting, heart health and bone health.
  • Vitamin K2

    K2

    Less is known about the absorption of vitamin K2. Yet experts believe that because K2 is often found in foods that contain fat, it may be better absorbed than K1 (2Trusted Source). This is because vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin. Fat-soluble vitamins are much better absorbed when eaten with dietary fat. Additionally, vitamin K2’s long side chain allows it to circulate in the blood longer than K1. Where vitamin K1 may stay in the blood for several hours, some forms of K2 can remain in the blood for days (8Trusted Source). Some researchers believe that the longer circulation time of vitamin K2 allows it to be better used in tissues located throughout the body. Vitamin K1 is primarily transported to and used by the liver (9Trusted Source).
  • Folate

    Deficiency

    persistent fatigue. weakness. lethargy. pale skin. shortness of breath. irritability.
Minerals:
  • Calcium

    Benefits

    This is one we know we need but I caution supplementing with. Without other supplements to help it play its role you can do more harm than good. Better to test than guess with this one.
  • Manganese

    Benefits

    Manganese (Mn) plays an important role in a number of physiologic processes as a constituent of multiple enzymes and an activator of other enzymes. Here is a great article for more details https://lpi.oregonstate.edu/mic/minerals/manganese
  • Zinc

    Deficiency

    Zinc deficiency causes hair loss, diarrhea, eye and skin sores and loss of appetite. Weight loss, problems with wound healing, decreased ability to taste food, and lower alertness levels can also occur as well as impotence in men.
  • Copper

    Deficiency

    Common signs and symptoms of copper deficiency include fatigue and weakness, frequent sickness, weak and brittle bones, problems with memory and learning, difficulties walking, increased cold sensitivity, pale skin, premature gray hair and vision loss.
  • Chromium

    Deficiency

    Chromium deficiency impairs the body’s ability to use glucose to meet its energy needs and raises insulin requirements. It has therefore been suggested that chromium supplements might help to control type 2 diabetes or the glucose and insulin responses in persons at high risk of developing the disease.
  • Iron

    Deficiency

    Iron deficiency occurs when the body doesn’t have enough of the mineral iron. This leads to abnormally low levels of red blood cells. … If your body doesn’t have enough hemoglobin, your tissues and muscles won’t get enough oxygen and be able to work effectively. This leads to a condition called anemia.
  • Magnesium

    Benefits

    Magnesium is involved in hundreds of biochemical reactions within our body. It May Boost Exercise Performance. Magnesium Fights Depression. It Has Benefits Against Type 2 Diabetes. It Has Anti-Inflammatory Benefits. Magnesium Can Help Prevent Migraines.
  • Copper to Zinc Ratio (very important, if this balance is off you are going to have a slew of health issues)
Metabolites:
  • Choline

    Benefits

    Improving memory and cognition. Choline is an essential nutrient for brain development. … Protecting heart health. … Boosting metabolism. … Reducing the risk of pregnancy complications. … Improving cystic fibrosis symptoms.
  • Inositol

    Benefits

    Inositol supports your body’s normal insulin processing mechanisms. Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas and released into the bloodstream. Insulin allows our cells to take in glucose (sugar) and produce energy. When you eat, your body breaks down glucose in your bloodstream. Increasing glucose in your blood tells your pancreas to make insulin. For insulin to work, it must bind to the insulin receptor on the surface of the cell. Think of a lock (the insulin receptor) and a key (insulin). When insulin binds to its receptor, it “unlocks” and releases secondary messengers. These secondary messengers tell the cell it is time to take in glucose from the blood. Inositols function as secondary messengers. This means that inositols help with insulin signaling. In other words, they help the cell take in glucose from the blood.
  • Carnitine

    Benefits

    L-Carnitine is an important amino acid. It plays a significant role in boosting your body’s metabolism. It does this by improving mitochondrial function and increasing cellular energy. Many athletes use it to help them burn fat, enjoy enhanced recovery and prevent muscle fatigue
  • MMA

    Deficiency

    Methylmalonyl-Coenzyme A mutase deficiency (MCM deficiency) is a type of methylmalonic acidemia caused by having too little methylmalonyl-CoA mutase. Methylmalonyl-CoA mutase (MCM) is one of the special proteins ( enzymes ) needed to breakdown certain amino acids found in the food we eat
Amino Acids:
  • Asparagine

    Asparagine is critical for the production of the body’s proteins, enzymes and muscle tissue. It’s been shown to balance nervous system function
  • Glutamine

    Benefits

    This is one of the most important nutrients for a healthy digestive tract because of its ability to maintain the integrity of the intestinal wall. This amino acid (in fact it’s the most abundant amino acid in the body) heals all tissue in the body, especially those irritated tissues in the digestive tract
  • Serine

    Benefits

    L-serine is essential for the synthesis of lipids called phosphatidylserine that make up the cell membrane of neurons. It is also essential for growth of neuronal processes. However, it is not clear whether L-serine supplements directly increase L-serine levels in the brain so ensuring proper dietary intake and conversion is important.
  • Arginine

    Benefits

    arginine changes into nitric oxide (NO). Nitric oxide is a powerful neurotransmitter that helps blood vessels relax and also improves circulation. Some evidence shows that arginine may help improve blood flow in the arteries of the heart
  • Citrulline

    Benefits

    The body changes L-citrulline into another amino acid called L-arginine and also to a chemical called nitric oxide. L-citrulline might help increase the supply of ingredients the body needs to make certain proteins. It might also help open up veins and arteries to improve blood flow and reduce blood pressure.
  • Isoleucine

    Benefits

    Has been shown to help control blood sugar. It may also boost energy and endurance. It’s also said to help speed healing of injured muscles. Isoleucine may also help muscle development and lean body mass
