This is a serum assessment of how well the body utilizes 33 vitamins, minerals, amino/fatty acids, antioxidants, and metabolites. This blood test works very well with a Nutrigenomics Evaluation to determine best how to supplement to support SNPs. This test also helps determine nutrient deficiencies that can occur due to poor intake, problems with the gut that lead to poor digestion or from increased needs due to injury, trauma or disease. Tracey recommends most clients have this test done because it reports the level of nutrients inside the cell were we need them to do their work!
Note: some clients are able to use insurance to decrease the out of pocket cost of this test.
