Micronutrients are vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. It is common for the average person to be deficient in a few micronutrients as todays diets do not provide all of the needed nutrition. Getting a micronutrient test helps measure your body’s ability to absorb vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other essential nutrients into your white blood cells.
By determining what your body is deficient in or has trouble absorbing we can help create a plan that will create sufficient levels of micronutrients in your body. You no longer need to dump hundreds of dollars a month into vitamins and supplements that your body doesn’t even need. By creating healthy levels of micronutrients your body is also more efficient at fighting diseases and sicknesses.
IMPORTANCE OF MICRONUTRIENTS
Prevent free-radical damage
Help protect against occurrence, progression, and recurrence of cancer
Aids in regulation of hormone levels
Delays cellular aging
Bolstering insulin sensitivity
Strengthens and supports immune function
Producing and releasing energy
Two Pronged Approach
Regenics Micronutrient test tests for extracellular, intracellular, and RBC micronutrients. This two pronged approach helps us get the most complete picture.
Extracellular testing provides a baseline snapshot of nutritional deficiencies. Extracellular nutrients are the nutrients freely circulating through your bloodstream. It is an indicator of your diet over a shorter period of time.
Having excesses or deficiencies in extracellular micronutrients can lead to increased risk for chronic diseases including Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and diabetes.
Intracellular testing identifies longer-term nutritional deficiencies and issues with absorption of micronutrients. Deficiencies can cause chronic diseases and lead to death.
Intracellular micronutrients have been studied scientifically and have long been considered a more sensitive tissue measure of micronutrient absorption. For example, vitamin C levels in lymphocytes have been found to be deficient in Type 2 diabetes patients as compared to plasma levels. RBC folate and magnesium are clinically more significant than whole blood measures of these nutrients. RBC omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acid levels have been found to be markers of accelerated structural and cognitive aging.
Knowing both your extracellular and intracellular micronutrient levels are key to a thorough understanding of your nutritional requirements at a foundational level, which may contribute to your risk for disease, while simultaneously and positively impacting your overall health and well-being.

Why not just take multivitamins?
Multivitamins are not a one size fits all solution. Factors like age, alcohol and tobacco usage, genetic factors, the food you eat, and medical conditions can effect your ability to absorb nutrients. While you may be taking a supplement that includes 100% of the daily value, your body may have trouble absorbing these nutrients. You may also be getting too much of a vitamin or mineral due to multivitamin content.
The Regenics Micronutrient test tells you if you have too much or too little of a vitamin or nutrient, what that can cause, and how to fix it with diet or supplementation. Regenics offers a wide array of IV infusions and vitamin injections to help you get your micronutrients in the right range.
