Mini Vitamin & Mineral Profile

Eating a nutritious diet rich in fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins is an important step in reducing the risk for chronic health problems and achieving optimal health. However, research shows that most of us do not get adequate nutrition.

At one time, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) reported that when vitamin and mineral levels were measured in a broad study of American citizens, 90% were deficient in a variety of essential vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, and B12, Calcium, Fiber, Iron, and Zinc.

Unfortunately, most people are not aware of their own nutrient deficiencies. The Riordan Clinic Mini Vitamin and Mineral Panel will analyze the levels of 19 vitamins and minerals essential to health, identify your specific deficiencies, and provide recommendations for improvements.
