Vitamins and Supplements Q&A

Am I getting enough vitamins and minerals in my diet?

A healthy, well-balanced diet is a cornerstone of good health. Even so, most Americans don’t eat enough vegetables, fruits, and whole grains every day. 

National data shows our diets shortchange us of crucial vitamins and nutrients, such as:

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin C
  • Folate
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Fiber
  • Potassium

Deficiencies in vitamin B12 and iron are also common among postmenopausal women whose diets lack red meat. 

How do I know which vitamins and supplements I’m lacking?

A comprehensive evaluation can be the best way to find out whether your diet provides you the right nutritional balance. At BodyLogicMD of Hartford, Dr. Petruzzelli provides the SpectraCell micronutrient test to scientifically assess your dietary deficiencies. 

The SpectraCell blood test measures 31 nutritional components, including:

  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Antioxidants
  • Amino acids

The analysis also evaluates your white blood cells. Doing so gives an overview of your body’s nutritional status over the last 4-8 months. Your SpectraCell test also assesses your metabolism function and measures antioxidant function. 

Antioxidant function is a window into immune health, showing how well your body can fight free radicals and other oxidative stresses that cause aging and disease. 

Dr. Petruzzelli may also suggest other tests to round out your assessment. 

Which vitamins and supplements should I take?

Dr. Petruzzelli draws on the data provided in your SpectraCell analysis, along with other tests, to prepare customized pill packs of vitamins and supplements based on your nutritional needs. She takes into account your overall health, medications you're taking, and other factors to prevent adverse reactions.

Your plan features high-quality, cost-effective nutraceutical-grade supplements from leading manufacturers like Metagenics, Ortho Molecular Products, Thorne, and XYMOGEN. These manufacturers follow good manufacturing practices and abide by the highest standards for quality and ingredients.
