Micronutrient Testing for Nutritional Deficiencies Micronutrient Testing:
SpectraCell's micronutrient testing is a clinically effective tool for the prevention and management of health, wellness & chronic disease prevention and support. There is overwhelming evidence confirming that nutrient deficiencies have been shown to suppress immune function contributing to chronic disease process including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, arthritis and Alzheimer's.

Manganese is a vital trace element involved in antioxitant function as a co-factor for mitochondrial superoxide dismutase. Manganese is also required for normal skeletal development and cartilage synthesis. Wound healing is impacted by manganese, as the synthesis of collagen in skin cells is dependent on the presence of adequate manganese. It is considered anti-osteoporotic and anti-arthritic. Toxic amounts can lead to Parkinson's symptoms so it is important to identify the correct amount for you. about 20% of Americans are deficient in manganese.

This score is a measurement of your immune response to stimulation. In general, people with fewer deficiencies respond stronger than people with more deficiences. This response, reported an in Immunidex score, is one measurement of cell-mediated immune function.
More specific: It measures T-cell lymphocyte production. The higher the score the better.
