TX, 21 January 2003
scientific and clinical studies have repeatedly demonstrated that
vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies can have adverse effects
upon health, from acute infections to chronic disease, at all stages
of life. Several particular nutrients have shown much promise in
the prevention and management of important chronic disease conditions
such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
Laboratories today announced the launch of a new product line of
nutritional tests to complement its full range of nutrient assessments
in the field of preventive medicine. The addition of six (6) new
tests provides the most comprehensive nutritional deficiency analysis
available, providing powerful and innovative clinical assessment
tools for physicians in primary and specialty care. SpectraCell
is now offering tests for Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Selenium, Coenzyme-Q10,
Lipoic Acid, and Carnitine.
FIA tests measure functional levels of a broad range of vitamins,
minerals, amino acids and antioxidants, as well as other essential
nutrients. These tests offer a scientific basis for repletion of
specific nutrient deficiencies.
serum tests measure only the quantities of vitamins and minerals
present in serum, providing limited information on intracellular
levels. At SpectraCell, lymphocytes are grown in tissue culture
to determine functional intracellular deficiencies that can limit
mitogenic responses and cell-mediated functions. This unique methodology
takes into account the genetic, metabolic, biochemical and physiological
differences in each patient.
are uniquely qualified to guide the nutritional care of their patients.
By using the FIA tests to identify specific needs, accompanied
