The Vitamin Profile measures the following blood vitamin levels:

Vitamin A

Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin that can convert cartenoids into vitamin A. It is essential to the retina to form retinal a light absorbing molecule which allows for low-light and color vision. It also acts as a growth factor for skin and other cells and plays a role in supporting the functions of the immune system. The body converts vitamin A found in foods to retinol retinal and retinoic acid.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E refers to a family of fat soluble vitamins. These vitamins have antioxidant properties and work to fight the damage of free radicals including oxidative stress which has been shown to cause certain types of cancer as well as heart disease. In addition vitamin E is involved in immune function and supports healthy skin.

Beta Carotene 

Beta-carotene is the most well known member of the carotenoid family. It is also a pro vitamin A compound that the body can convert into active vitamin A to ward off deficiency. As an antioxidant it fights free radicals lowering the risk of certain cancers provides ant-aging benefits enhances the functions of the immune system promotes cell communication and supports reproductive health.

Vitamin B1

Vitamin B1 commonly referred to as thiamin is part of the enzyme system that allows oxygen to convert sugar into usable energy. Additionally the vitamin provides nervous system support and aids in the process of creating the neurotransmitter acetylcholine used to relay messages between nerves and the muscles.

Vitamin B6 

Another B-complex member is vitamin B6. It has one of the largest varieties of chemical forms. B6 is involved in more than 100 enzymatic reactions in the body. It plays a role in the synthesis of essential molecules the processing of carbohydrates supports nervous system activity helps metabolize sulfur and methyl and prevents inflammation.

Vitamin B12 And Folate 

Vitamin B12 is solely found in microorganisms. The vitamin depends on intrinsic factor a unique protein produced in the stomach to travel from the digestive tract to the rest of the body. Vitamin B12 is responsible for the formation of red blood cells the development of nerve cells cycling protein properly throughout the body and is involved in the processing of carbohydrates and fats. B12 content in foods depends on the animal's ability to store B12 after coming into contact with microorganisms. Folate known as folic acid is a B-complex vitamin. The body must use enzymes to chemically alter food sources of folate in order for it to be absorbed. In a healthy adult only 50-percent of folate ingested through food is absorbed by the body. Folic acid facilitates the complete formation of red blood cells aids in cell production especially in the skin provides nervous system support and works to prevent osteoporosis and Alzheimer's disease. It is extremely important during pregnancy and helps to prevent birth defects.

Vitamin C 

Vitamin C known as ascorbic acid is a water-soluble nutrient. Vitamin C mainly acts as a protector in the body. It's an antioxidant that combats oxidative stress reduces the risk of cancer regenerates vitamin E supplies and improves the body's ability to absorb iron.

Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy 

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that also acts as a hormone. During its conversion in the body Vitamin D becomes 25-hydroxy vitamin D. The most accurate way to determine the level of vitamin D in the body is to test for 25-hydroxy vitamin D. The 25-hydroxy vitamin D changes in the kidney to the active form of vitamin D which helps to control the body's levels of calcium and phosphate helps to regulate insulin activity aids in preventing osteoporosis lowers the risks of a number of conditions bolsters the immune system supports cognitive function regulates blood pressure muscle composition and muscle function reduces the risk of inflammation and bacterial infections supports mood stability and helps to prevent chronic fatigue and certain cancers.
