Similar errors are encountered when trying to establish nutritional requirements through serum or plasma panels for zinc, manganese, phosphorus, chromium, selenium, copper, and most other trace elements.

While an antioxidant-rich diet may provide adequate cellular nutrition for the average, healthy individual, it would be inadequate for those suffering from nutrition related chronic diseases, which require the use of more sophisticated resources that are capable of measuring and optimizing an individual's cellular nutrition status.
