MICRONUTRIENT-
CHECK

A sufficient supply with all nutrients is often challenging. If the body is undersupplied with vitamins, minerals and micronutrients, it will start using its own reserves. Once these reserves are used up, complex metabolic disorders can occur.

CAUSES FOR DISTURBANCES

What influences our micronutrient balance?

THE MICRONUTRIENT CHECK

Nutritional Balancing

Taking supplements on a random guess is far from ideal. If you want to provide your body with the right nutrients, you should know exactly what your individual micronutrient status is. The individual micronutrient status should therefore be determined first, so that you can ensure you are taking the right vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients.

Up to 71 micronutrients

We require approx. 20-30 hairs from you to be able to determine your personal micronutrient status. Our experts will check your hair sample for contamination and if sufficient sample material has been provided.

LABORATORY REPORT

Our analysis results are very detailed, self-explanatory and presented in an innovative way. For each of the tested nutrients from our standard analysis, you receive information about the corresponding nutrient type, presence in foods, their effect, possible deficiency symptoms and their interaction with other nutrients.

Benefits

The hair serves as a kind of bio-monitor, because it absorbs all nutrients through the bloodstream, but also foreign substances, which it traps as it grows. Basic substances such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, etc. can accumulate in the hair under certain circumstances, but not enough of the nutrients reach the cells. We do not use a chemical measuring method, therefore the hair is not dissolved in its composition during the analysis. We do not measure what your hair is made up of, but what your cells need in terms of fine matter.

Our customers about our tests

  • Very good test, understandable and gives very informative information about intolerance. It is always good to know what is not good for you in order to adjust your diet. The waiting time from the order to the result speaks for itself! Just great Thank you

    Sonja F.

    Goodbye food intolerances
  • Receive my evaluation within 3 days!
    And what should I say? After I stick to the omission of the intolerances of the tested foods, my intestinal complaints are blown away. Who would have thought that the gastrointestinal tract reacts this way to sweeteners ?!
    I am really happy that I invested the money in this very informative test and can only recommend it to everyone!
    My girlfriend also made it and then kept to the omission of the “food that was not tolerated” and since then she has been doing much better
    So we both have positive experiences and therefore award 5 *****
    THANK YOU

    Nadine I.

    More zest for life
  • The evaluation is extremely quick, very detailed and helpful. I can only warmly recommend medicross.

    Katrin P.

    Very fast
  • The formalities of the order were simple. The result came in very quickly. The deviations found surprised me. Perhaps intolerance to certain substances is responsible for this. I am very satisfied with your work.

    Horst G.

    Wow effect!

Physical symptoms

The common symptoms of nutrient deficiencies include fatigue, headaches, loss of libido, dermatological, nail and hair problems, amongst many others.

Psychological symptoms

Depression, mood swings, aggression, anxiety, proneness to stress, insecurity and many more.

Chronic diseases and complaints

Chronic fatigue, joint pains, arthritis, rheumatism, hypothyroidism and many more.

Stress

When we are stressed, our body needs even more nutrients to keep the engine running. And just when we would really need a balanced diet for a healthy micronutrient balance, we tend to adopt a counterproductive behavior–after all, cooking and eating must be done quickly as well. But certain micronutrients could provide us with valuable support in stressful times.

Medications

Many medications disturb the micronutrient balance because for absorption, processing and excretion, medications and micronutrients take the same routes in the body. This can, for example, reduce the absorption of micronutrients from food and increase their excretion through the kidneys, resulting in increased nutritional requirements overall. Those who are chronically ill and elderly people are particularly affected because the metabolic performance of their liver and kidneys is usually reduced and they often have to take several drugs simultaneously.

Sports

Wanting to increase performance and endurance goes hand in hand with reaching our physical limits while working out. In addition to regular training, optimal athletic performance requires a focused intake of micronutrients. For that, it is important to first have your micronutrient balance determined by an analysis. Then an intake of the right amount of the required micronutrients is possible.

Nutrition

There is a growing awareness of the importance of meeting the demand for micronutrients, because only those whose nutritional requirements are met will haven energy throughout the day. In addition to an increased consumption of unsaturated fatty acids and an excessive intake of table salt and macronutrients, our current eating habits show an insufficient intake of dietary fibers and certain micronutrients. A reason for that is the increasingly important role that fast-food and ready-made meals play.

Environment

Many people are exposed to environmental toxins. As a result, they not only lose some of their quality of life, but also valuable years of life. The organism tries to neutralize the adverse ingredients of cigarette combustion gases as well as other environmental toxins and harmful substances with vitamins and minerals. Therefore, smokers and people who are exposed to environmental toxins have increased requirements for nutrients and vital substances. It is generally known today that smokers need more antioxidative vitamins, which is why the German Association for Nutrition (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Ernährung, DGE) also recommends an increased intake of vitamin C.

Aminosäuren

Aminosäuren sind die Bausteine der Proteine (Eiweiße), werden durch unsere DNA codiert und sind somit die Bausteine allen Lebens. Es gibt 20 Aminosäuren, die am Aufbau der Proteine beteiligt sind. Davon sind viele sogenannte essentielle Aminosäuren, d.h. unser Körper kann sie nicht selbst herstellen und ist auf die Zufuhr dieser wichtigen Aminosäuren angewiesen.

Alanin, Arginin, Asparagin, Citrullin, Cystein, Glutamin, Glycin, Histidin, Isoleucin, Leucin, Lysin, Methionin, Ornithin, Phenylalanin, Prolin, Serin, Threonin, Tryptophan, Tyrosin, Valin

Enzymes

Enzymes drive some important reactions in the body. Enzymes convert substances to other substances and split up large molecules. They extract basic building blocks that are necessary for our body from food and are involved in metabolism. In addition to digestion, growth and breathing, they are needed for the transmission of stimuli and many other processes. As regulators and control points, enzymes enable the smooth running of many other reactions in the body.

Bromelain, papain, pepsin, tyrosinase

Vitamine

Vitamine gehören zu keiner einheitlichen Stoffklasse. Vitamine sind verschiedene fett- oder wasserlösliche chemische Verbindungen, die durch den Ab- und Umbau von Kohlenhydraten, Eiweißen und Fetten die Energiegewinnung regulieren. Außerdem stärken sie das Immunsystem und sind unverzichtbar für den Aufbau von Zellen, Blutkörperchen, Zähnen und Knochen. Unser Körper ist nicht in der Lage, Vitamine selbst zu synthetisieren, weshalb eine ausreichende Zufuhr über die Nahrung wichtig ist.

Vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, B10, B12, C, D, E, K2, β-Carotin

SPURENELEMENTE

Spurenelemente sind Mineralstoffe wie z. B. Chrom, Eisen oder Zink. Der Körper benötigt sie nur in sehr geringen Mengen (einige tausendstel Gramm täglich) zur Herstellung von Proteinen, Enzymen und Hormonen. Wir müssen sie durch die Nahrung zu uns nehmen, denn sie sind essentiell, werden also nicht vom Körper selbst synthetisiert.

Chrom, Kupfer, Mangan, Selen, Zink, Eisen

Elektrolyte

Elektrolyte sind Salze, Säuren oder Basen, u.a. aus Natrium, Kalium, Magnesium, Eisen. Sie zerfallen in dem wässrigen Milieu unseres Körpers in positiv oder negativ geladene Teilchen. Dadurch entsteht ein elektrischer Strom, der die Zu- und Abfuhr von Stoffen aus Darm, Blut und Lymphe in die Zielzellen regelt. Ein ausgeglichener Elektrolythaushalt sorgt also für eine optimale Verteilung der Nährstoffe.

Calcium, Magnesium, Kalium

SONSTIGES

These are defined parameters of analysis results in the laboratory. They allow physicians and therapists to divide measurement results into normal and abnormal values. The laboratory parameters are the baseline in diagnostics.

Coenzyme Q10, creatine, α-lipoic acid, lutein, taurine, carnitine

AMINO ACIDS

Amino acids are the structural units that make up proteins. They are encoded by our DNA and are the components of all life forms. There are 20 amino acids involved in the structure of proteins. Many of these proteinogenic amino acids are so-called essential amino acids, which means that our body cannot synthesize them from scratch and therefore depends on being supplied with these important amino acids.

Alanine, arginine, asparagine, citrulline, cysteine, glutamine, glycine, histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, ornithine, phenylalanine, proline, serine, threonine, tryptophan, tyrosine, valine

Vitamine

Vitamins are not part of a uniform substance class. Vitamins are various fat-soluble or water-soluble chemical compounds that regulate the energy generation by helping to process carbohydrates, proteins and fats. They also strengthen the immune system and are essential for the growth and development of cells, blood cells, teeth, and bones. Our body is not able to synthesize vitamins itself, which is why a sufficient supply from food intake is important.

Vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, B10, B12, C, D, E, K2, β-carotene

MICRONUTRIENTS

Micronutrients are minerals such as iron, chromium, or zinc. The body only requires very small quantities of them (a few milligrams per day) to produce and activate proteins, enzymes, and hormones. They are essential elements and are not synthesized by the body itself, which is why they have to be part of our dietary intake.

Chromium, copper, manganese, selenium, zinc, iron

ELECTROLYTES

Electrolytes are salts, acids or bases from sodium, potassium, magnesium, iron and others. When dissolved in the aqueous milieu of our body, they separate into cations and anions. Their movement within a solution amounts to an electric current, which regulates the supply and removal of substances from intestines, blood and lymph to the target cells. A balanced electrolyte metabolism therefore ensures an optimal distribution of nutrients.

Calcium, magnesium, potassium
