What Are Micronutrient Absorption Deficiencies?
Everyone is biochemically different, and we don’t all absorb nutrients in the same way or in the same amount. Our bodies need certain vitamins and minerals to function at an optimal level, and many of us are living with micronutrient deficiencies that we are unaware of, as symptoms can manifest differently from person to person.
Even with a near-perfect diet, without adequate micronutrient absorption, your body cannot feel 100%. You are what you absorb, not only what you eat. Having optimal gut health is critical to micronutrient absorption. Poor gastrointestinal function is often the culprit behind micronutrient deficiencies

Nava’s Advanced Micronutrient Profile measures the function of selected vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants. Analysis can reveal a person’s functional nutrient status at a tissue level, rather than serum levels measured through conventional testing. As such, and our test gives a more meaningful measurement of absorption and nutritional status.
With a quick blood test, we determine which vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids are present in the cells, and use this information to gauge if an individual is absorbing micronutrients properly. We highly recommend the Advanced Micronutrient Profile to anyone seeking to increase wellness and vitality, and for people who have struggled with treating any of the above symptoms with nutrition changes alone.
Once the micronutrient deficiencies are identified, our team of Nava practitioners can make targeted repletion recommendations aimed to restore your unique biochemical needs. We utilize professional-quality oral supplementation, as well as intravenous repletion strategies when warranted. In addition, specific dietary recommendations as well as repair of the gastrointestinal system is directed by our staff of experienced Nutrition Experts.
