The Importance of Intracellular Nutrients
Many men are deficient in the micronutrients that are vital to good long-term health without being aware of it. Micronutrients are built up over a six month period in intracellular lymphocytes in your body. The micronutrient levels in cells is essential to overall health and supporting your body to delay the effects of aging. Most of the micronutrients in our cells may be supplied by the foods we eat. Dietary habits may result in deficiencies of intracellular micronutrient levels.
Intracellular micronutrient levels are cofactors for Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men. Our bodies need these essential minerals, vitamins, antioxidants and amino acids for optimal utilization of the hormones. Additionally, your body will deplete nutrients at a faster rate because it is functioning at a higher level. Optimizing these factors ensures maximum benefit from HRT for men.
Intracellular Nutrient Testing
Radiance Age Management recommends SpectraCell testing for nutraceuticals for men as part of our Integrated Age Management Program. SpectraCell provides complete nutritional deficiency blood testing to measure the vitamin, mineral and antioxidant levels in your body. SpectraCell uses your lymphocytes to assess long-term intracellular requirements. It provides more comprehensive results than the standard serum tests. Standard tests only measure the static levels of micronutrients. SpectraCell testing measures the actual levels of micronutrients in your cells rather than the amounts of nutrients that may be freely available in your blood but not absorbed and utilized.
SpectraCell testing color codes results like a stop light: red, yellow and green. If you are in the red or yellow, your body is depleted or borderline for those specific nutrients on the intracellular level. SpectraCell testing is separate from the blood work conducted for HRT. It may be elected at additional cost to optimize your Integrated Age Management Program for Men.
Nutraceutical Supplementation Program
SpectraCell testing will identify potential nutritional deficiencies at the intracellular level in your body. Once the testing is complete, results will be reviewed. If specific micronutrient results are in the red or yellow, those nutrients are likely deficient in your diet. Recommendations to increase those micronutrients to an optimal level are made for the nutraceuticals for men component of our Integrated Age Management Program for Men. Green levels for micronutrients in SpectraCell testing do not need supplementation.
