Nutritional Health encompasses the amounts of nutrients found in the body's cells, such as vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids. During growth, vitamins stored in the blood, lymph plasma, and different fluids in the body are saved within the hair. The nutrient content in the hair can reflect the nutrient composition of the body. Where there is a deficiency inside the hair profile, it usually means there is a deficiency inside the body.
Minerals are crucial during many processes and in all phases of metabolism. Thousands of biochemical reactions control metabolism, digestion, and tissue regeneration. How effective these processes can be, depends on the specific nutrients. When there is a deficiency of essential nutrients to feed the body's functions, the ability to regenerate, metabolize, or decompose harmful substances may be compromised. While the parameters in the blood can indicate, what is in the blood at any given time, the hair analysis is a record of how the body stores and loses elements. The choice of hair as a testing material is based on blood biochemical parameters changing daily. In contrast, hair values may give a more stable picture of the overall nutritional status of the body.
Hair analysis is invaluable for determining the right diet and supplement program for each individual. Nutrient analysis of hair tissue reflects not only the effects of diet and supplementation on the body but also the effects on the metabolism, coming from stress, physical activity, endocrine, and gastrointestinal functions. The nutritional health test is included in the 750+ Food, Drinks, Vitamins Test Kit 750+ items.
