At Rejuvé, we truly believe that beauty begins inside you -- not just your "inner beauty," but also your health on the most fundamental level. The very building blocks of your body play a key role in your health and beauty. 


This month, that basic level of health is what we're focusing on. We offer several tests that will help you to understand your health at the cellular level. This level of detailed testing goes far beyond what you receive at your doctor's office during an annual exam, and is generally not available from a general practitioner. 


These tests can help root out the causes of chronic conditions like high cholesterol, hypertension, and diabetes, helping you to address these problems with specific, targeted solutions. Most PPO health insurance plans do provide partial coverage for the testing. Patients with Medicare can receive a limited version of the micronutrient and LPP (cholesterol) test at no cost. Call Rejuvé at 408-740-5320 to discuss insurance and payment options.


Read on to learn more about these important tests, and find a special coupon with added savings for you. 


To your health!

Micronutrient Testing for 

Your Best Health


Are you getting the nutrition you need? Most people's vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant needs are not met by diet alone. But did you know that according to research, 50% of people taking daily multivitamins are still nutritionally deficient? That basic one-a-day pill may not be enough for your optimum health! 
  Daily Vitamins
Similarly, basic tests at your doctor's office don't measure whether nutrients are functioning properly in your body. This makes a big difference: It's not just about getting nutrients, it's also critical that your body is absorbing them. This can be affected by numerous factors, from your lifestyle choices to the prescription drugs you take.
Rejuvé offers micronutrient testing from Spectracell which measures vitamins like Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, 6,12, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin K,  and folate; minerals including calcium, magnesium, zinc, and copper; amino acids; antioxidants like selenium, CoQ10, and Vitamin E; and fatty acids.  Unlike traditional blood testing that measures a few vitamins in the plasma, this test is a functional assay that measures your body's unique ability to transport the micronutrients from the plasma inside the lymphocyte (a specialized white blood cell).  This offers a functional assessment, since cells ultimately need to bring the nutrients from the blood 
inside in order to remain healthy.   
In addition, it is the most comprehensive test available, measuring 33 specific nutrient deficiencies which often play a role in the development of chronic health conditions. This test can detect these deficiencies and be an integral part in the treatment of these conditions, often mitigating the need for medications.  It can assess the need for supplements, whether supplements are actually being absorbed, detail the need for specific vitamins (saving you from just taking an enormous amount of all vitamins), and protect against over-supplementing.  Furthermore, the test can repeated again in 6 months to ensure that the recommended regimen is working.

A More Accurate Measure 
of Heart Disease Risk 

Did you know that routine testing fails to identify 50% of people at risk for heart disease?  Basic blood tests for cholesterol levels may overlook other important factors in heart disease risk. In fact, according to the National Institute of Health, roughly half of people who suffer heart attacks have "normal" cholesterol levels. 
Clearly, something besides cholesterol testing is needed to assess risk. If you have a family history or other risk factors for heart disease, you should consider Lipoprotein Particle Profile testing. This advanced test measures all the risk factors identified by the National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP). Knowing your lipoprotein levels is crucial for intervening with effective, targeted treatment.

Methylation and Health


  How Well Do         Your Cells            Methylate?                               

Not sure what methylation is? It's a term worth knowing about! 


Methylation is a crucial part of cell processes. Methylation is a process that your liver uses to detoxify the toxins in your body. Reduced methylation capability has been linked to debilitating medical conditions including neurological and cardiovascular disorders,

diabetes, and mental dysfunction. Determining your body's ability to methylate (also known as your MTHFR genotype) gives you valuable information about your health.



So what do you do if your cells do not methylate at an optimal level? The good news is nutrition can help methylation pathways. Micronutrient testing can help identify areas where your body is deficient, and what can be targeted for replenishment.
