The CMA (Cellular Micronutrient Assay) includes >200 individual items, including Vitamin, Minerals, Amino Acids, Other Nutrients, Botanicals, Plant Extracts, Pigments, Phytonutrients, Antioxidants, Anti-inflammatory Nutrients, Fatty Acids, and Enzymes. This is the most comprehensive test available for individuals who want to know how well their body is performing, beyond the basic labs your doctor draws. The antioxidant assay, lets us know how you can reduce oxidative stress inside your body through changing your diet. The best part is we come to you and we review all your results with you, so you understand exactly what they mean for you. These labs are drawn Monday-Thursday only and require a blood draw as well as a cheek swab. We send these off and all you results return in a week. Save by adding on the CMA to any of the food sensitivity panels below:
- Comprehensive Panel – 250 Items – 200 Foods, 30 Food Additives, and 20 molds
- Platinum Comprehensive Panel – 320 Items, 200 Foods, 50 Functional Foods/Herbs, 30 Food Additives, 20 Antibiotic/Anti inflammatory Agents, and 20 Molds.
- Platinum Plus Comprehensive Panel 370 Items 250 Foods, 50 Functional Foods/Herbs, 30 Food Additives, 20 Antibiotic/Anti inflammatory Agents, and 20 Molds.
Functional cellular nutrient analysis assesses the impact of individual nutrients on cellular function. The CMA (Cellular Micronutrient Assay) directly measures the effect of specific micronutrients on the ability of T and B lymphocytes to reproduce when stimulated with a mitogen (an agent that causes mitosis/cell division). When the body has an infection, it increases production of the T and B lymphocytes (memory cells) that “recognize” and combat that specific invader. The faster these cells reproduce the faster infection is overcome. The ability of these cells to multiply is driven by our nutrient stores. Cells need nutrients in order to grow and multiply. Those nutrient requirements are unique to each individual and are impacted by many factors. Stress, genetics, high energy output in sports, pregnancy, recent infection, toxic burden, sleep patterns, etc., all play a role.
Intracellular vs. serum and plasma assessment
Measurement of micronutrients in plasma or serum is a reflection of their levels in circulation and outside of cells, not a reflection of nutrient levels within the cell where they have the most functional impact. Serum/plasma levels of nutrients are prone to daily fluctuations and are not necessarily a complete and perfect indication of intracellular nutrient status. Therefore, assessing micronutrients and their impact on cellular function at the cellular level is preferred as it provides insight into an individual’s long-term nutritional status (6 months) versus short-term variability
Add on any or all of our specialty tests to have a complete picture of your cellular health. Speciality testing includes; Celiac, IBS, and Crohn’s or CICA test panel, Methylation Detoxification Profile, and Telomere length. All speciality tests require a blood draw and are only available Monday-Thursday. Test result normally return within 7-10 days of being collected. Want to include speciality testing with BHRT or peptides, we have you covered with the Bugatti Plan. Speciality testing is discounted when added on to the Comprehensive, Platinum Comprehensive, or the Platinum Plus Comprehensive panel.
