Vitamins and minerals play a key part in our overall health and wellbeing

Sometimes these markers can become depleted though a busy lifestyle diet and nutritional factors

Some symptoms connected to this are:

  •  Fatigue
  • Anaemia
  • Depression,
  • Muscle aches

This test is suitable for men and women of any age that are looking to check their vitamin and nutrition levels.

and is especially useful for vegan or vegetarians as some of these vitamins are mainly sourced in animal products

Especially because some Vitamins can only be sourced from animal sources such as meat, fish and dairy this test could be helpful for the vegan and/or vegetarian community.

Test Included

VITAMINS

Vitamin D is important for bone strength as well as energy levels, mood, and immune health

Vitamin B12 is part of the B complex of vitamins

The body is unable to make them itself and so instead must take them in through the diet

It contributes to your red blood cells metabolism and organ function

Folate is needed by the body in your diet every dayIt plays a role in DNA replication and protection, it’s important for the production of red blood cells as well as in the prevention of neural tube defects in babies.

Low levels can indicate anaemia and can be implicated in raised homocysteine levels.

IRON STATUS

The test measures the volume of iron within your blood with the aim of diagnosing iron deficiency anaemia or iron overload syndrome (haemochromatosis).

The symptoms of too little or too much iron can be very similar I.e fatigue, muscle weakness, moodiness and difficulty concentrating

Ferritin is a protein which stores iron in your cells for your body to use later. Measuring ferritin levels gives us a good indication of the amount of iron stored in your body.

Low levels of ferritin can indicate anaemia which can be caused by excessive or chronic bleeding, poor absorption of iron or too little iron in the diet.

Raised ferritin levels can indicate iron overload syndrome (haemochromatosis) or any kind of liver damage. It is also a marker of infection and inflammation.

Total Iron Binding Capacity (TIBC)
measures how well the blood and iron bind to each other.

It can be used alongside other iron tests to help diagnose iron deficiency

A transferrin saturation test tells us how much iron in the blood is bound to transferrin.

A low transferrin saturation usually indicates iron deficiency

MINERAL

Magnesium is an abundant mineral which the body needs for energy production, nerve function and muscle contraction.

Magnesium is sourced through the diet,
