Know your symptoms

Vitamins and minerals, also called micronutrients, are the building blocks for good health. People who do not have enough of these essential nutrients develop micronutrient malnutrition, which can be devastating.
CDC

Although only required by the body in small amounts, minerals are essential for proper growth and development, preventing disease, and your overall wellbeing. Most people with a mild mineral deficiency or excess will not experience any symptoms, so regular testing is key to understanding your levels.

You should take the Mineral Test if:

  • You want to identify areas for improvement of your overall health
  • You follow a vegetarian or vegan diet
  • You have recently excluded a particular food group from your diet
  • You are over 50 years of age
  • You are experiencing symptoms of a deficiency
  • You have a condition that may impact the absorption of nutrients such as celiac or Crohn’s disease
  • You have problems absorbing nutrients from your diet
  • You are taking certain medications that impact the absorption of some minerals

The Micronutrient Test can provide comprehensive insights into your diet, enabling you to quickly and easily identify and resolve any deficiencies. Anyone can develop a micronutrient deficiency. However, some may be at increased risk, including those following a vegan or vegetarian diet or as a result of conditions such as celiac and Crohn’s disease that impair the absorption of food. Your nutritional requirements may change as you age or as a result of certain medications.
