Description: Metabolism happens within cells. Cells need nutrients to be metabolically active.

The Cellular Mucronutrient Assay (CMA) is your tool to assess and address insufficiencies in micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) as well as amino acids, and other nutrients within immune cells. This is a reflection of long-term nutrient status not just a “snapshot” as is seen in serum nutrient tests.
An overload and accumulation of free radicals (from pollution, toxins, medication, radiation, etc) in the body can result in oxidative damage which plays a major role in the development of chronic and degenerative illness. Antioxidants can help protect the cells from oxidative damage.

The Redox Assay measures the overall antioxidant function of your immune cells.

The Antioxidant Protection Assay (APA) identifies specific antioxidants that significantly improve your antioxidant capacity and protect cells from oxidative damage.

Easy to understand, color-coded test results show “nutrient sufficiency,” “borderline insufficiency,” and “insufficiency”. The function and dietary sources of each insufficient and borderline insufficient nutrient are described within the test results’ commentaries
