Are you taking too many supplements? Not enough? Nutritional status is a vital foundation of health and performance. SpectraCell’s micronutrient testing is an innovative assessment of nutritional status. Unlike traditional serum, hair and urine tests, SpectraCell’s tests evaluate how an individual’s white blood cells respond to varied environments of over 32 vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants. As a result, individual differences in metabolism, age, genetics, health, prescription drug usage, absorption rate or other factors are taken into consideration.

Standard cholesterol Testing Is Not Enough Research shows that the lipoproteins carrying cholesterol, not the cholesterol itself, are responsible for inducing atherosclerotic plaque production and accelerating cardiovascular disease progression. In fact, about 50% of heart attack sufferers had normal HDL and/or LDL cholesterol test results. For a complete cardiovascular risk assessment, get SpectraCell’s LipoProtein Particle Profile™(LPP™).

SpectraCell’s Telomere Test is the window to your true cellular age. This advanced test measures the length of your telomeres – the end caps of your DNA. Studies have shown a direct link to telomere length, cardiovascular health and the aging process.

Is your cardiovascular treatment strategy best for your specific genetic composition? This test determines an individual’s genetic risk associated with the Apolipoprotein E gene. The results of the genotyping of Apolipoprotein E have important implications in the treatment strategies for individual patients in reducing cardiovascular disease risk.
