The modern American lifestyle sets us up for many nutritional deficiencies. Consuming sugar and refined carbohydrates drive out key B vitamins, zinc and magnesium out of our body. Most Westerners are living with nutritional deficiencies due to years of high stress and poor lifestyle habits.

Many individuals suffer with chronic health problems related to these nutritional deficiencies and believe that they can never get well. Unfortunately, they have never tested key nutritional levels. When chronic nutritional deficiencies are present they lead to lowered cellular energy levels and a lowered ability to adapt to stress.

Here are some of the most common nutritional deficiencies and what you may want to have analyzed.




Fatty Acid, Bloodspot-Metametrix KIT

The Bloodspot Fatty Acid Profile measures key omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and determines key signs to establish your ideal balance. Trans fatty acids—the “bad” oils in processed foods—are also measured. Individual fatty acids are measured as a percent of the total measurable fatty acids.

Fatty acids are the fats we obtain from our diet. They may be monounsaturated, polyunsaturated or saturated. Fatty acids are found in oils and other fats that make up different foods. Balanced fatty acid levels are essential for ideal health.

The ideal ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acids should be around 2:1. Most Americans test to be around 20:1. This elevation of omega 6 fatty acids produces chronic inflammation throughout the body. This can result in cardiovascular problems, neurological problems, skin issues and vision problems among other things.

Glutathione (GSH) is the most abundant and important intracellular antioxidant. Every cell in the body produces glutathione. Many longevity scientists believe that the level of glutathione in our cells is predicative of how long we will live. This is logical considering the wealth of essential bodily processes that glutathione plays a critical role in.

Glutathione has been coined with the term “master anti-oxidant” due to its essential role in maintaining exogenous anti-oxidants such as vitamin C & E in their active form. Glutathione is like the cell’s security guard protecting the genetic equipment from outside attack.

It is estimated that each cell in the body withstands 10,000 hits by free radicals each day. Glutathione disarms these free radicals before they wreak havoc and cleans up the oxidative stress related damage that has occurred.

Low levels of GSH have been reported in cardiovascular disease, cancer, AIDS, autism, alcoholism, debilitating neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, chronic retention of potentially toxic elements (mercury, lead, arsenic, cadmium, manganese, iron), chemicals and some drugs.

Vitamin D, 25 OH (Hydroxy)

This highly automated test measures both D2 and D3 together and reports a total 25-hydroxyl Vitamin D. This is the best overall test for Vitamin D levels.

Vitamin D is also known as the “sunshine vitamin” because the body manufactures the vitamin after being exposed to sunshine. Vitamin D (calcitriol) plays a role in over 2000 genes in the human body. It is critical to the development of the brain and vital organs and pregnant mothers who are deficient are at high risk for congenital defects in their newborns.

It also has other roles in the body, including modulation of cell growth, neuromuscular and immune function, and reduction of inflammation. There are associations between low Vitamin D levels and peripheral vascular disease, neurodegenerative conditions, certain cancers, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and other auto-immune diseases.

Optimal levels should be between 60-100 ng/ml for optimal health.

Vitamin B9 (Folate) and Vitamin B12:

Methylation is a key biochemical process that happens billions of times every second to repair the DNA in the body. B vitamins are the key components to healthy methylation processes. The key methylators include vitamin B6, folate and B12.

Research has shown that lowered levels of these nutrients all result in a significantly increased risk of cardiovascular disorders, mood and anxiety disorders and neurodegenerative processes.

Magnesium, Serum

Magnesium is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies. This mineral is particularly important to nerves and muscles. Low magnesium is found in malnutrition, alcoholism, diabetes, hyperparathyroidism, and more.

Deficiency symptoms include muscle cramping or twitching, low energy, insomnia, chronic pain, depression and irritability.

Many individuals have trouble with blood sugar signaling and insulin resistance. This condition lends itself towards magnesium deficiencies as insulin helps bring magnesium into the cells. Additionally, elevated blood sugar leaches magnesium and other major nutrients of the body.


Zinc is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies. Zinc is necessary for proper immune, hormone and brain functioning. Symptoms of a zinc deficiency include irritability, fatigue, depression, poor appetite, eczema and acne and poor sense of smell and taste.

Deficiency symptoms include: irritability, fatigue, depression, poor appetite, and poor sense of taste and smell.

Poor blood sugar balance, environmental toxin exposure, high stress and a diet rich in phytic acids are several factors that can lead too zinc deficiencies.

checkiconI really like this test because it gives me an insight into the nutritional levels of key systems of the body. When any one of the nutrients is down or there are improper fatty acid ratios it puts a tremendous stress on the entire body and lead to chronic disease development.

This test also gives me insight into the bodies digestion and detoxification. When issues are present with digestion and detoxification the body will have inadequate amounts of several of these key nutrients.

Fortunately, because of the many thousands of newsletter readers and social media followers, my team has been able to network with a great lab distributor and get the best possible pricing for everyone.

The retail value (using market value and insurance based rates) is highly inflated and driving up the cost of health care. This is the old, archaic method that many people are still using and paying way more for insurance and co-pays than they really should be.

Many intelligent people are saving insurance premium dollars and turning to pay by order labs such as DirectLabs and others. These skip the middle man (doctors’ visits) and cut down costs for the patient.



My team has been able to beat all of these other methods when it comes to providing the best educational descriptions behind the tests and superior savings. By using as your source you will save time and money and know exactly the right tests for you so you can get well quicker with less cost.

Additionally, when you order special labs from you will receive a free email with a summary of your results and lifestyle and supplement recommendations from Dr Jockers himself or a well-qualified team member.



If the test requires blood work you can take your kit to any local lab and have the trained professional take your blood and fill out the kit and send it in the mail.

Urine and blood prick tests can all be done in the comfort of your home and sent into the lab with the mailing slip in your kit. All instructions will be sent to you with the kit. It is a very simple process that most anyone can figure out. The lab also has a customer service phone # if any help is needed.
