Vitamins, Minerals and Metals

Indication

General well-being 

 

Benefit

A good overview of one’s vitamin status, levels of minerals, trace elements and metals.

Levels of vitamins can reveal adequate intake or the need for supplements or a diet adjustment. Elevated blood metals indicate immediate exposure; reduced concentrations of essential minerals and trace elements reflect an inadequate intake and may be a sign of a nutritional deficiency. Hair sample provides a record of past and current trace element levels.
