DETERMINING YOUR NUTRIENT PRIORITIES

by Siphiwe on June 8, 2015

I received my Vitastiq (http://www.vitastiq.com/) on Friday and have been testing it all weekend. Here are my preliminary results.

 

Vitastiq history

 

 

Here is my reading from 6/7/2015 at 8:17 am:

 

Vitastiq1

Vitastiq2

Vitastiq3

 Unlike the readings from Biotin to Sodium which are taken at acupressure points on the hand and foot, the remaining readings from coenzyme Q10 use acupressure points on other areas of the body. My low readings are actually the result of my inability to accurately find the points….

 

Here are my results from 6/08/2015

 

Vitastiq4
Vitastiq5

And here is my nutritional average (not including supplements) from June 1st to June 7th, 2015 using Cronometer:

Crono1

 

Crono2

 

Now, let’s take a look at the data.

 

My second SpectraCell Micronutrient test (http://fitfortrucking.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Sip-After-Micronutrient.png)  showed a deficiency of Biotin, Oleic Acid, Zinc, Selenium and a “Fructose Sensitivity”. It also showed a borderline deficiency of Vitamin D3, Calcium, Copper, Chromium, and Vitamin E.  Oleic acid is classified as a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid which is not tracked by Vitastiq or Cronometer. Neither is “Fructose Sensitivity”. I did not get accurate readings for Copper using Vitastiq and Cronometer does not track Biotin or Chromium.

 

Below is my Nutritional Analysis Comparison chart. If a nutrient does not appear then that means that none of the four measurements showed a deficiency.

 

Nutrient Analysis

 

Analysis:

 

1.      There is only one nutrient that all four measurements agree there is a deficiency: Calcium. As a result, this is my #1 nutrient priority.

2.      Both SpectraCell and Vitastiq showed deficiencies in: Zinc and Vitamin D. These are my #2 nutrient priorities.

3.      SpectraCell shows a remaining deficiency in Biotin, Selenium and Oleic Acid. These are my #3 nutrient priorities.

4.      Cronometer shows that of the three – Calcium, Zinc and Vitamin D – I am not getting enough of Calcium and Vitamin D from food. However, I am getting enough Zinc from food.

5.      Cronometer also shows that I am not getting enough Vitamin E, Magnesium, Potassium, Omega 3, Omega 6, Vitamin K, B1, B2, B5, Choline and Folate from food alone.

6.      Even with supplementation, I am not getting enough Magnesium, Potassium, Omega 3, Omega 6 and Choline. These are my #4 nutrient priorities.

 

Priorities:

 

1.      Calcium

2.      Zinc, Vitamin D

3.      Biotin, Selenium, Oleic Acid

4.      Magnesium, Potassium, Omega 3, Omega 6, Choline

Nutritional Deficiencies

http://www.laurapappashealth.com/2012/04/can-your-diet-cure-disease/ Micro-nutrient deficiencies may be the most under-reported health crisis in America. According to the 74th USA Congressional Record (1936): “Laboratory tests prove that the fruits, the vegetables, the grains, the eggs and even the milk and the meats of today are not what they were a few generations ago . . . .
