Actionable insights. Individualized care. 

Contrary to established paradigms about health, the majority of chronic disease is attributable in large part to cellular deficiencies in micronutrients. By correcting deficiencies, you can prevent, treat and reverse many medical conditions—from the most serious to the most banal.


Micronutrients and Energy

Micronutrients directly affect your energy levels because nutrients are required by every cell in order to convert food into ATP, which is the energy currency of our cells. ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is made from fats, carbohydrates or protein via different pathways. These metabolic pathways absolutely need micronutrients in order to work. If the metabolic pathway that converts food to energy does not have the nutrients it needs, energy production is compromised, which can present as fatigue, among other things.

Why SpectraCell 

While you can measure vitamin levels in your blood at many labs, those tests will not tell you anything about how micronutrients are actually working inside your cells. Most commodity nutritional tests are serum-based and measure nutrient levels in the liquid plasma outside of cells but this is not where metabolism takes place. Every biochemical reaction needed to sustain life — like energy production, cellular repair, detoxification, growth, protein synthesis, genetic expression — all occur inside your cells. 

SpectraCell's Energy Optimization Test not only measures nutrient status within your white blood cells, it measures the function (performance) of nutrients within your cells. After all, it doesn't matter how much of a nutrient exists in a cell, if that cell is incapable of using that nutrient. Ideally, micronutrient status should be assessed intracellularly and functionally and SpectraCell's test is the only one of its kind that does just that. 


Collection: blood draw (venipuncture)

Results in 10-14 business days.



* SpectraCell is a CLIA certified laboratory that reports functional micronutrient deficiencies in an individuals’ cells, which is the purpose of this report. It is not intended to diagnose or treat specific medical conditions. The quality and bio-availability of supplements varies considerably and should be taken into account when developing a repletion regimen.
