Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to suppress the functions of the immune system which can contribute to the overall condition of one’s health and diseases such as:
• Arthritis • Cardiovascular disease
• Cancer • Diabetes
50% of people taking multivitamins are still nutritionally deficient.
-William Shive, University of Texas Austin
But I eat a balanced diet, exercise and take a multivitamin…
MANY PEOPLE WORK AT IMPROVING THEIR HEALTH, YET SOME INDIVIDUALS STILL HAVE DEFICIENCIES. WHY?
o BIOCHEMICAL INDIVIDUALITY
Because each of us is metabolically and biochemically unique, the micronut rient requirements fo r one
person may be quite different than the requirements for another.
Although you may eat a balanced diet, if you do not absorb vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and/or other
essential micronutrients properly, you will have deficiencies.
o CHRONIC ILLNESS
Health conditions such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, fatigue and multiple sclerosis, to name a few, can be affected, directly or indirectly, by micro nutrient deficiencies.
Our micronutrient requirements at age 30 are quite different from our requirements at age 40, 50 and beyond. Absorption difficulties, especially of vitamin B 12, quite commonly occur as we age.
Excessive physical activity, prescription drugs, smoking, alcohol and sedentary habits all impact

STANDARD TEST RESULTS DO NOT MEASURE IF NUTRIENTS ARE PROPERLY FUNCTIONING WITHIN THE BODY.
SpectraCell Laboratories developed their exclusive, patented micronutrient tests to measure the function
of selected vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other essential micronutrients within your white blood cells.
Analysis can reveal a person’s functional nutrient status over a much longer time period than conventional
serum testing. SpectraCell’s tests give a more meaningful measurement of nutritional status than all other nutritional testing.
