The Individual Optimal Nutrition profile short for ION is a combination of nutritional tests that measure levels of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and organic, fatty and amino acids. Using the combination of nutritional testing profiles, the ION offers a complete evaluation of nutritional functions that impact patient’s mental and physical well-being.
Over time, functional nutritional deficiencies can result in a variety of chronic health conditions. The ION nutritional testing profile can help determine the basis for these conditions.

The ION profile is a unique panel in the sense that it offers a combination of detailed assessments in underlying deficiencies and is helpful for assisting these imbalances for a variety of health conditions. The human body requires these nutrients to function properly. The foods you eat provide fuel for your body. The nutrients you consume each day are your body’s only source of raw materials. Each chemical reaction occurs in a step-wise sequence and depends on the daily availability of raw materials. A shortage of any nutrient can shut down the “assembly lines” that are your body’s biochemical pathways.
