    What influences the micronutrient balance?

    • Eating habits

      • An unbalanced diet, especially with processed foods, can lead to a deficiency of important micronutrients.
      • A diet based on plant-based, unprocessed foods without preservatives and gentle preparation can improve micronutrient balance.
    • Lifestyle

      • Negative habits such as little sleep, smoking and excessive alcohol or coffee consumption have an unfavorable effect on micronutrient balance.
      • The regular consumption of stimulants can be partially compensated by a diet rich in fruits and vegetables.
    • Stress

      • High physical or psychological stress negatively affects many antioxidant micronutrients and minerals.
      • Stress reactions can be regulated and the nutrient balance improved through relaxation exercises, sufficient sleep, abstaining from alcohol and tobacco as well as a balanced diet with targeted micronutrient intake.
    • Environmental influences

      • Environmental influences such as UV radiation, pollutants in food, air pollution or chemicals can negatively affect micronutrient balance.
      • Avoiding contaminated foods, thorough washing of fruits and vegetables, organic produce, and adequate antioxidant intake can counteract exposure.
    • Sports

      • Excessive sports, especially competitive sports, can greatly increase micronutrient requirements through increased mineral excretion, increased energy consumption and protein synthesis.
      • The body can be adequately supplied with proteins, electrolytes, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants through targeted nutritional adaptation and supplementation.

    • Amino acids

      Amino acids

      Amino acids are chemical compounds that can be strung together to form long chains and thus form the basic structure of proteins. They are found in all living things and are responsible for various vital functions in the human body. Part of the amino acids can be produced by the body itself and therefore they are classified as non-essential. The essential amino acids, on the other hand, are indispensable and must be taken in regularly with food.

      Vitamins & Vitaminoids

      Vitamins are organic compounds and unlike other nutrients, vitamins do not provide energy. They are substances that the body itself cannot synthesize (with the exception of vitamin D). Therefore, they are considered essential for humans, as they must be ingested with food. Vitaminoids are vitamin-like substances that includes a number of different substances and metabolites. They were all initially assigned to the group of vitamins until it was discovered that the body can synthesize them itself. They thus belong to the conditionally essential nutrients, since in the case of illness or certain metabolic conditions, it may be possible that their own synthesis does not cover the daily requirement.

    Frequently asked questions

    • Questions about the micronutrient test

    • Why should you get tested for micronutrients?

      Our micronutrient test shows you for which micronutrients your body currently has an increased need. This creates the starting point for a targeted adjustment of your diet and, if necessary, supplementation.

    • For whom is the micronutrient test suitable?

      Our micronutrient test is intended for all persons who fear that they are insufficiently supplied with micronutrients due to malnutrition or deficiency. Stress, illness or medication intake can be responsible for this.

    • How expensive is a micronutrient test?

      You can find the prices and all information in our online store. Here we also inform you about current offers.

    • What are nutrients and how do they affect your body?

      Nutrients are substances that humans need for their development. In childhood and adolescence, your body needs nutrients for healthy growth. But even in adulthood, nutrients are essential for a healthy life.

       

    • What are the nutrients?

      By nutrients we mean so-called macro- and micronutrients. Macronutrients are fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and amino acids are micronutrients.

    • How do you know that your nutrient balance is not optimal?

      Our diet has a huge impact on our well-being, mood and quality of life. If you frequently suffer from the following symptoms, this may indicate an insufficient supply of micronutrients to your body.

      Physical symptoms:

      – Fatigue
      – Headache
      – Concentration difficulties
      – Increased susceptibility to infections
      – Feeling of weakness
      – Loss of appetite
      – Skin, nails and hair problems

      Psychological symptoms:

      – ravenous appetite
      – Depressive moods
      – Mood swings
      – Listlessness
      – Nervousness
      – Stress susceptibility
      – Irritability

    • What are the causes of micronutrient deficiency?

      The reasons for an insufficient supply of micronutrients can be manifold. Examples include malnutrition, liver disease, but also inadequate digestion (maldigestion) or absorption of nutrients (malabsorption).

    • What is the difference between deficiency and need?

      At Medicross, we test you for your micronutrient needs. This describes the amount required to maintain specific functions in the human organism. Micronutrient requirements vary from individual to individual and depend on age, gender, physical activity, life situation and state of health. Athletes, pregnant women or smokers, for example, have an increased need for minerals and vitamins.

      Micronutrient deficiency occurs when needs are not met over a long period of time and the body’s own depots are depleted. A slight (marginal) deficiency can lead to biochemical changes in the organism with partly unspecific symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, concentration disorders or headaches. In a very pronounced stage (latent deficiency), there is impairment of important processes and functions in the body, which brings a number of health problems. Examples are anemia (anemia) due to iron deficiency or a weakening of the immune system due to vitamin C deficiency. Unlike micronutrient requirements, micronutrient deficiencies must be diagnosed by a physician. At Medicross, we determine your individual needs, but do not test you for any micronutrient deficiencies.

    • Is there an increased need for micronutrients during certain phases of life?

      In certain phases of life, the need may be increased. For example, during pregnancy, while breastfeeding or in case of infection.

    • Which micronutrients are particularly important for athletes?

      A balanced supply of micronutrients is essential for a healthy life, but also for performance in sports. The most important micronutrients include:

      – Amino acids
      – Vitamin C, E and beta-carotene
      – B vitamins
      – Iron
      – Magnesium
      – Calcium
      – Zinc
      – Sodium
      – Potassium

    • What can an undersupply of micronutrients lead to in athletes?

      An undersupply of micronutrients can lead to various complaints in athletes:

      – Increased susceptibility to infections
      – Muscle cramps
      – Failure to progress in training
      – Slow regeneration
      – Chronic fatigue
      – Increased risk of injury

    • Is it possible to overdose with micronutrients?

      Overdosing on micronutrients can be harmful to your body in the long run. The additional intake of certain micronutrients may partially reduce or completely block the absorption of other nutrients. If you take nutrients in high concentrations over a long period of time, this can lead to certain side effects. These include diarrhea, vomiting and nausea. In the long term, the liver or kidney can also suffer from an oversupply.

    • In which life situations should I keep a special eye on my micronutrient status?

      In the following situations, one should keep a special eye on the micronutrient status:
      – One-sided or unbalanced diet
      – Smokers
      – Vegetarian or vegan diet
      – A lot of stress
      – Higher age
      – Eating disorder
      – Alcoholics
      – Metabolic diseases
      – Intestinal disease or absorption disorder
      – Competitive athletes
      – Taking medication

    • What can a micronutrient test do and what not?

      Our micronutrient test aims to determine nutrient needs, not diagnose nutrient deficiencies. The test is not intended to diagnose disease. Therefore, it does not replace a medical diagnosis or medical treatment by a doctor. If you suffer from severe pain or discomfort, please consult a doctor immediately.

    • How are the results in the micronutrient test to be classified?

      The results in the micronutrient test are always to be understood as guide values. It will show you if you have an increased need for certain micronutrients. But not that you completely lack these nutrients. In fact, it is not a matter of testing for deficiency symptoms. If that is what you are concerned about, we recommend that you seek medical attention.

    • Should I take the test with my primary care physician?

      You can order our test in our online store and then perform it from the comfort of your home. You will be able to understand your laboratory report without any prior medical knowledge, because we attach great importance to making your analysis easy to understand. Once your results are in, you can access them online on your computer, tablet or phone. After each order, detailed instructions for the selected test will be sent directly to your email address, explaining step by step how to collect the sample for analysis. As a general rule, specimen collection can be performed discreetly, quickly and easily, and without the need for medical professionals. The test is not intended to diagnose disease. If you suffer from severe pain or discomfort, please consult a doctor immediately.

    • Questions about our tests

    • How does the Medicross ordering process work?

      You can order our tests quickly and easily in our online store. We will send you the entry form directly afterwards by e-mail. From you we need only one strand of hair. You send these together with the entry form by mail directly to our laboratory. There your hair strand will be analyzed and you will receive a detailed result by e-mail.

    • What are the types of tests?

      We currently offer testing for micronutrients and intolerances. Both tests are also available for pets.

    • What is the difference between a blood analysis at the doctor and our hair tests?

      Our tests are based on complementary medicine. They will determine your nutritional needs and test you for any intolerances. Blood analyses, on the other hand, examine the presence of certain parameters in the blood (vitamins, minerals, proteins or antibodies) and thus describe the current state of supply or the occurrence of an allergic reaction. In contrast to a blood analysis, it is not possible with our method to look at individual values in isolation.

    • What does complementary medicine mean?

      The term complementary medicine covers a range of medical therapies and diagnostic methods that are not part of conventional medicine. They are often used as a supplement to conventional medicine, without replacing it.
      Complementary and alternative medicine is not always recognized by the scientific community. Among the most common reasons people seek complementary medicine is a desire for holistic diagnostics. Many now feel the need to combine different medical methods and approaches to holistically improve their health and well-being.
      Complementary medicine includes, for example, natural remedies, such as herbal medicine, homeopathy, and acupuncture, as well as various forms of manual therapy, such as chiropractic and osteopathy. Alternative diagnostic methods such as iris diagnostics or kinesiology can also be counted as complementary medicine. Although there are many people who benefit from these approaches and consider them a useful complement to conventional medicine, their effectiveness is still often questioned by conventional medicine.

    • What will my Medicross self-test result look like?

      Your result is presented in a detailed and self-explanatory way and designed to give all parameters in a % value. This means that the higher the value, the higher your need for this micronutrient.

    What influences intolerances?

    • Eating habits

      • Hasty eating, lots of sugar, salt and saturated fats, and monotonous diets can compromise the intestinal barrier and increase the risk of intolerances.
      • A balanced, plant-based diet and conscious eating support intestinal health and a balanced intestinal flora.
    • Stress

      • When stressed, the body releases more stress hormones, which affects digestion and can lead to nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea.
      • Relaxation, enough sleep and a balanced diet can alleviate stress reactions.
    • Antibiotics

      • Frequent antibiotic use can eliminate both harmful and beneficial gut bacteria, affecting gut flora and digestion.
      • High-fiber diets and probiotics can strengthen the intestinal flora after antibiotic treatment.
    • Environmental influences

      • Pesticides, processed foods and additives can increase intestinal permeability, allowing contaminants to enter the blood.
      • Eating unprocessed, seasonal and organic foods can reduce exposure to pesticides and additives.
    • Pre-existing conditions

      • In addition to genetic enzyme defects, pancreatic diseases, chronic inflammatory bowel diseases, infections or bacterial colonization can trigger intolerances.
      • Gastrointestinal complaints should be examined and diagnosed by a doctor.

    Frequently asked questions

    • Questions about the intolerance test

    • What is an intolerance?


      In the case of an intolerance, the body is not
      the body is not able to absorb certain substances


      to



      or

      to process. This leads to a disturbance in the metabolic process. Intolerances occur particularly frequently in the context of food intolerance. In this case, the intestine usually lacks the necessary enzymes to digest the substance.

    • What is the difference between an allergy and an intolerance?

      Allergies and intolerances are two different forms of hypersensitivity reactions of the body to certain substances. Our intolerance test does not test for allergies.

      An allergy is an immune-mediated reaction to a specific antigen. This results in the production of specific antibodies (IgE) against the antigen. This leads to an inflammatory reaction in the body. Typical symptoms of an allergy are, for example, itching, skin rashes, shortness of breath, dizziness or anaphylactic shock.

      An intolerance is a non-immunological reaction to a substance that can be triggered by various mechanisms. A possible cause may be an enzyme deficiency. These prevent the body from digesting certain substances properly. This produces metabolic products that can lead to symptoms in the body. Typical symptoms of intolerance are, for example, abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea or flatulence.

      In short, the difference between an allergy and an intolerance lies in the way hypersensitivity is triggered. An allergy is an immune-mediated response to an antigen, while an intolerance is a non-immunological response to a substance.

    • What can an intolerance test do and what not?

      With our intolerance test you can find out if you suffer from a possible intolerance. Symptoms of allergy and intolerance are often similar. Therefore, intolerances are often confused with allergies. Please note that you will not be tested for allergies in this test. Therefore, the test is not intended to diagnose disease and is not a substitute for medical diagnosis or medical treatment by a physician. If you are suffering from severe pain or discomfort, please seek medical attention immediately.
