Why Cellular Health Is Key to Personalized Supplements

Finding reliable health & wellness guidance is hard, and with so many options available online, it’s difficult to pick out which one is best suited for you. Do these personalized health & wellness brands even have your best interests in mind, or are they just trying to sell a product? Hint: if it sounds like a quick fix, they’re just trying to sell.

At Paragon Vitamins they don’t promise a quick fix, because a quick fix is not the answer. They use a powerful and personalized combination of state-of-the-art cellular health analysis and a validated online lifestyle questionnaire to determine nutrient imbalances and provide personalized supplement packs right to your door. This highly revealing method has been used for over 15 years with professional athletes and those wanting to enhance wellness and have the data to back it up. The way they prove it is by looking at your cellular fingerprint: via your hair.

But people often ask, why is cellular health testing so effective? Here’s what we know…

1. Reveals Mineral Levels and Metabolic Activity

Your health depends on key mineral levels inside cells, as intracellular minerals are essential to the catalysis of vitamins & enzymes. Clinical testing is needed to effectively assess intracellular mineral imbalances and identify heavy metals, both of which have a large impact on biochemistry and how the body functions. Hair tissue reveals this key information for mineral, vitamin, and overall enzyme balances inside your cells. State-of-the-art hair testing provides a clear window into cell health, metabolic activity, glandular and hormonal activity, nutrient levels, and any ongoing toxic metal exposures.

On the other hand, blood tests measure levels outside cells (extracellular), and the two are often not related. For example, most magnesium is stored inside cells, whereas less than 2% is stored in blood, meaning blood is not a good indicator of your magnesium levels.

2. Detects Hidden Mineral Imbalances

You can have a “normal” blood test and still have hidden cellular vitamin, mineral, or nutrient imbalances that are revealed in a cellular health hair test, as levels of nutrients in cells and blood are different. Hair testing measures mineral levels and ratios inside cells that directly affect related vitamin and metabolic activities within the cell.

Different health conditions are associated with particular balances of minerals. Adjusting those minerals and the associated vitamin levels is often the most critical factor to restoring metabolic balance, and full health.

3. Detects Hidden Toxic Exposures

Since the body needs to keep the blood pure and uncontaminated, as a protective measure it works to quickly remove toxic heavy metals and store them deeply within cells. This is why someone can have a “normal” blood test and still have heavy metal toxicity. By acting as a receptacle for heavy metals over a period of weeks and months, a hair test will effectively pick up any ongoing metal toxicity inside your cells — even when exposures are sporadic.

4. Stable, Long-Term Reading

Blood tests are subject to minute-to-minute fluctuations based on activity, emotions, and food eaten most recently. Hair testing provides a long-term record of nutrient and toxin intakes affecting your vitamin and mineral balances and overall metabolic activity at an intracellular level.

5. Painless and Non-Invasive

Taking a small snippet of your hair is pain-free, easy to do, and doesn’t require any special storage or transport methods like refrigeration. They arrive at the lab without any fear of spoiling or damage.

Paragon combines the biochemistry data from the hair tissue mineral analysis with inputs from a validated lifestyle questionnaire to understand the nutritional imbalances and deficiencies driving more than 100 symptoms you may be experiencing. This enables them to create the most personalized supplement regime possible. They then deliver precision supplements based on the synergistic integration of vitamins and minerals.

Leah Wyar, VP of the beauty and wellness brand Byrdie, said that Paragon “changed [her] body” in an interview for Authority Magazine. Leah’s testimonial is just one of many stories available on how their personalized supplements are improving wellness

Whether you’re an elite athlete, an executive with a fast-paced career, or a busy parent, your day-to-day activity depends on peak performance and a large output of energy.  Data-based recommendations from what your hair can reveal about your body’s needs, will help elevate personal performance, have a sense of thriving and enable health span longevity.
