SKU: N/A Categories: , ,

Enrollment with purchase of a 5-year subscription to 10 Inflammation Panel blood spot test kits (one ordered and shipped now, one ordered and shipped every 6 months for the full 5 year project).

An increasing body of evidence has shown that chronic inflammation can cause or advance many common chronic diseases, with higher levels of cellular inflammation indicating a greater risk of the development of and/or accelerated progression towards chronic disease.

These 4 tests combined can help identify your current level of cellular inflammation and how it could be improved.  Each of these are measured using blood spot test cards.

  • Vitamin D
  • Omega-3 Index with AA:EPA and Omega-6:Omega-3 Ratios
  • CRP (C-Reactive Protein)
  • HbA1c (Glycated hemoglobin)

Included in each Vitamin D*action Inflammation Panel test kit:

  • 2 lancets
  • 1 Vitamin D blood spot card
  • 1 Omega card (to test the Omega-3 Index, AA:EPA Ratio and Omega-6:Omega-3 Ratio)
  • 1 hs-CRP blood spot card
  • 1 HbA1c blood spot card
  • 1 envelope for returning both cards
  • 1 gauze pad, 1 band aid, and 1 alcohol swab
  • Vitamin D literature

When you order your kit, you will also be participating in the world’s largest vitamin D project to solve the deficiency, D*action. You may choose to enroll for a 1-time test with your health information, or you may even participate in the 5-year project, where you provide your health information along with a vitamin D test (and other test(s) you choose) every 6 months for the 5-year period. Your participation over the next five years will help build a body of science that will allow for tracking health care outcomes associated with vitamin D levels.

Questionnaire & Citizen Science

Becoming a participant of GrassrootsHealth means that you are joining thousands of people in collaborating with us on nutrient research. Citizen science welcomes everyone’s participation in the discovery and sharing of scientific knowledge. As a citizen scientist, you’ll help us gain a better understanding of the role of nutrients in health and disease, and use the results to help inform public health officials to create change. Additionally, you can use your results to make informed decisions about nutrients that affect your health.

Here’s to the power of citizen science!

GrassrootsHealth could provide testing without asking you to fill out a questionnaire, but without that data we would have no way of measuring an effect. It would be a public service, especially back in 2009 when we started and it was hard to get a doctor to order a vitamin D test. But we founded GrassrootsHealth for more than testing. We founded GrassrootsHealth based on science, by first gathering together over 40 vitamin D researchers to form a panel of experts, then having those researchers come to a consensus on what the optimal vitamin D blood levels should be for general good health. The consensus they reached was for vitamin D levels to be in the range of 40-60 ng/ml (100-150 nmol/L). By asking about health, nutrient supplementation, and other exposures we can connect each participant’s blood levels with their lifestyle and health status and help guide scientific answers to personal questions. In short, your data matters!
