Hair mineral test has long been accepted as a routine test for nutritional and toxic metal screening.

It has been used extensively for nutritional studies in humans and animals.

For over 30 years nutritionists, dietitians, and doctors who are concerned about their patients' nutritional status incorporate hair mineral analysis in their practice as a routine evaluation and screening tool.

Hair is an ideal tissue for nutritional and toxic metal assessment for several reasons.

Testing metals in the urine only measures the minerals that are being excreted. The blood gives an indication of the minerals that are absorbed and temporarily in circulation before they are excreted and/or sequestered into storage depots. Blood and urine testing gives an indication of the mineral status of the body only at a specific time.

On the other hand, mineral concentrations, found in the hair, represent long-term (about 2 month) intake or exposure making it more useful for nutritional studies.

Nutritional imbalances are a major problem in today's society.

How nutritional imbalances develop:
  • We all know that the nutritional content of food depends on environmental factors. Pollutants in the air, water and food affect our nutritional balance.
  • Medication we have taken over the years influence our body chemistry.
  • Additional considerations include genetic factors such as metabolic type and inherited misbalances.

All these factors determine your nutritional needs. In this respect, taking even purest quality multivitamins in many cases will support already existing nutritional misbalance.

Not only can individual deficiencies and excesses be seen in a hair mineral analysis, but also the many interrelationships between elements can be viewed and interpreted through a single sample.

Laboratory report consists of:

  • Evaluation of nutritional mineral levels, their interrelations, information on heavy metals.
  • Your metabolic type categorization.
