Micronutrients + Food Sensitivity Profile 1
Know what to eat to get the nutrients you need to improve your health and wellbeing
Food Sensitivities are associated with gut inflammation and a higher nutrient deficiency. Kill two birds with one stone by identifying your personalized anti-inflammatory diet while addressing which nutrients you need to improve your health and wellbeing.
Chances are, you don’t really know what’s going on inside your body. You eat right, exercise, and take care of yourself… so why aren’t you feeling your best? The answer may lie in your nutritional status. An advanced Micronutrient Lab Test combined with the Food Sensitivity Test can give you a comprehensive look at how well your body is absorbing and utilizing essential nutrients — along with which foods to eat to support optimal absorption!

Is this test right for me?
The Micronutrient panel is a simple and quick test that can help you identify any nutrient deficiencies. The Food Sensitivity Profile 1 can help you craft a personalized anti-inflammatory diet to improve the absorption of nutrients.
How accurate is this test?
The Vibrant Micronutrient test analyzes the direct levels of extracellular and intracellular micronutrients using mass spectrometry technology to determine a person’s nutritional status. The test is highly accurate and reproducible due to its strict standards.
Vibrant Food Sensitivity 1 panel includes specific reactivity to 96 commonly consumed foods.
How should I prepare for this test?
To prepare for the Micronutrient test, fasting is not required. Before Micronutrient testing, some providers may ask you to stop taking certain supplements. You should talk to your ordering provider about whether you can eat anything, take any medications, or use dietary supplements before the test.
To prepare for the Food Sensitivity 1 tests, fasting is not required. Vibrant Wellness does not recommend a “food challenge” if you are already aware that you have adverse symptoms to a food. However, if the food has been removed for a significant amount of time (which is highly variable among individuals), it may affect the results. If you are taking steroids, immunosuppressive medications, biologic agents, or other immunomodulating medications, you may not get an accurate result of your antibody levels. If you are taking any of these medications, you may get falsely lower or falsely higher antibody results. For this reason, to ensure the most accurate results, your ordering provider may recommend testing 14-30 days after discontinuing these medications, or they may recommend testing Total Immunoglobulins (Total IgE, Total IgM, Total IgA, and Total IgG) before testing specific antibody levels to foods. Consult with your ordering provider regarding whether to continue or discontinue any dietary supplements or medications before your test, or whether to test Total Immunoglobulins before your Wheat Zoomer test.
