Comprehensive Nutrition Profile

Nutrients are essential to your health and well-being. Imbalances in certain nutrients may contribute to a range of illnesses. Nutritional imbalances may contribute to problems in the following areas: hormone function, neurotransmitter function, food digestion, skin health, bone formation, energy production and antioxidant function.

Would a Nutrition Profile Be Useful For You?

Most of the nutrients that the body requires are essential. This means that your body cannot manufacture them and you need to obtain them from your diet.

Processed foods and modern agricultural practices have tended to deplete nutrients from our food. So even when we eat a mostly whole food diet, we can still end up being depleted of essential nutrients such as Vitamin C or Selenium.

Living in today's modern world has delivered the body an array of new challenges: increased stress, nutritionally-low convenience foods and a chemical-laden environment.

These factors impact negatively on our vitality and place additional strain on the body, increasing its nutritional requirements. Research has consistently shown that maintaining adequate levels of essential nutrients allows the body to function at an optimal level and aids good health and promotes faster recovery from illness.

What The Comprehensive Nutrition Test Covers

The Comprehensive Nutrition Test provides comprehensive information on an individual’s nutritional status. It tests for a combination of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, digestive enzymes, essential fatty acids and specialised nutrients.

The nutritional status of an individual depends on a number of factors, the main ones being diet, digestive efficiency and nutrient absorption. This test assists you to fully assess your nutritional status as well as how well you digest your food.

The test report & health plan will provide you with a full nutrient profile, including information on its food and environmental sources, possible deficiency signs and possible toxicity signs.
