NEW! Micronutrient Testing at the Couri Center


Are you nourishing your cells properly?  Curious if your current eating plan or your current supplements are keeping your vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants in an optimal range? In alignment with all of the personalized and precision medicine that we offer at the Couri Center, we are excited to announce that we have added micronutrient testing as an option for our patients.  Micronutrient testing, a simple blood test, is a method used to assess the levels of essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in the body.  In addition, the new testing allows us to measure the antioxidant function in your cells and determine which antioxidants your body specifically needs.  The benefits of micronutrient testing include:

1.  Personalized Nutrition: Micronutrient testing provides insights into an individual’s nutritional needs. This allows for customizing dietary and supplement plans based on deficiencies or imbalances identified in the test results.

2.  Early Detection of Deficiencies: Micronutrient testing can identify deficiencies or imbalances in the early stages, allowing for prompt intervention before health issues arise. Early detection is crucial for preventing long-term health problems associated with nutrient deficiencies.

3.  Optimizing Health and Performance: Addressing nutrient imbalances can optimize overall health and performance. Adequate levels of vitamins and minerals are essential for various bodily functions, including energy metabolism, weight loss, immune function, 

and cognitive performance.

4.  Chronic Disease Prevention: Micronutrient imbalances have been linked to the development of chronic diseases. Identifying and correcting deficiencies may prevent cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and certain neurological disorders.

5.  Individualized Supplement Plans: Micronutrient testing helps us recommend targeted supplementation that is personalized for you. Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, individuals can take supplements that specifically address their nutritional needs, minimizing the risk of excessive intake.

6.  Improved Nutrient Absorption: Some individuals may have difficulty absorbing certain nutrients due to digestive issues or genetic predispositions. Micronutrient testing can highlight these challenges, enabling tailored strategies to enhance nutrient absorption.

7.  Enhanced Sports Performance: Athletes, in particular, may benefit from micronutrient testing to optimize their nutritional status for peak performance. Addressing specific deficiencies can contribute to better endurance, recovery, and overall athletic achievement.

8.  Weight Management Support: Micronutrient imbalances can influence metabolism and contribute to weight-related issues. By identifying and addressing these imbalances, individuals may receive more effective support for weight management goals.

9.  Improved Overall Well-being: Achieving optimal nutrient levels is associated with improved mood, cognitive function, and overall well-being. 

10.  Menopause support:  Menopause can cause a variety of symptoms, such as brain fog, mood changes, and fatigue.  Micronutrient testing can be an essential tool to help restore vitality and quality of life during this critical time.


It’s important to note that while micronutrient testing can offer valuable insights, it should be considered as part of a comprehensive health assessment. At the Couri Center, we are here to help.  To schedule your Micronutrient testing or learn more, click below or call 309-692-6838.
