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 provides a record of past and current trace element levels.
