When you’re feeling overly tired, anxious, or depressed, have you ever thought about how nutrient deficiencies and other underlying causes could be related to your symptoms? At HB Pharmacy, we offer micronutrient and Wheat Zoomer testing so our patients can take control of their health. Serving our community since the 1960s, we aim to educate and empower our patients.
About Micronutrient Tests
Micronutrients are essential nutrients found in certain foods that are necessary to maintain overall health. They’re responsible for providing energy production, hemoglobin synthesis, bone health, proper immune function, and protection against oxidative stress and cellular damage. Micronutrients can be found in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and more.
Through micronutrient testing, patients can get a sense of what kinds of micronutrients they’re missing and how that relates to the symptoms they’ve been experiencing. After testing is complete, you can review your results by scheduling a follow-up appointment with HB Pharmacy. We’ll work with you to create a customized diet and supplement routine, so you can get all of the necessary nutrients you need to remain healthy.
Benefits of Nutritional Testing
Everyone can benefit from receiving a micronutrient test, but specifically those with advanced age, stress, fatigue, depression, anxiety, diabetes, and other conditions. Learn more about what micronutrient testing can do for you:
As you age, nutrient deficiencies can make you more susceptible to decreased digestive capacity, dental issues, cognitive decline, and more. Nutrient deficiencies through dietary pattern changes can also lead to changes in your gut microbiome, making it more likely for you to experience chronic disease. Getting tested for micronutrients helps you stay ahead of your health in the long run.
As an athlete, it’s important to optimize your health for training and events. Since micronutrients directly impact your performance and energy production, getting tested allows you to make timely dietary changes to help improve tissue repair, lung capacity, reaction time, and even your mood. With excessive exercise, the amount of micronutrients you need increases, so knowing where you lack can make a world of difference.
Micronutrient testing is the only evaluation on the market that completely and accurately measures the direct levels of micronutrients in the body. Start here to take control of your health.
Wheat Zoomer testing is a service we offer to evaluate a patient’s intestinal permeability as well as gluten and wheat sensitivity. Low intestinal permeability can be caused by a poor diet or even certain medications, and it can result in IBS, rheumatoid arthritis, and other conditions. You could benefit from a Wheat Zoomer testing if you have any of the following:
- Suspected wheat or gluten sensitivity
- Leaky gut syndrome
- Gastrointestinal inflammation
A Wheat Zoomer test provides us with a comprehensive assessment of your dietary sensitivity, intestinal barrier stability, and early signs of celiac disease. Let HB Pharmacy help you stay healthy.
