A hair minerals analysis test provides information about the levels of minerals and trace elements in the body over a period of time, typically several months. Hair testing is therefore different from a blood test which provides information about the levels of these elements in the body at the time the blood is drawn. Because of this, hair mineral analysis testing can be used to monitor the effectiveness of treatments aimed at correcting nutrient deficiencies or reducing heavy metal toxicity over time.
This advanced hair minerals analysis includes measurement of 35 nutrients and toxic minerals.
Hair mineral analysis testing can provide information about the levels of various minerals and trace elements in the body, as well as toxic elements. This information can be used to identify deficiencies or excesses of these elements, as well as potential exposure to toxic elements.
Note that hair mineral analysis testing should be used in conjunction with other diagnostic tools and a thorough medical history and physical examination. Hair mineral analysis testing is not a standardised diagnostic tool, and results may vary depending on factors such as hair colour, ethnicity, and hair treatments.
