VITALITY

Vitality test will check your body’s levels of key vitamins and minerals, vital for optimising you health and supporting your body.

This includes all key markers such as B12, D3, Iron, Cholesterol and Folate.

Test Included

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

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

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.

HEALTH MARKERS

Cholesterol is a waxy substance which is made in the body by the liver but is also found in some foods. It plays a vital role in how every cell works and is also needed to make Vitamin D, some hormones and bile for digestion. However, too much cholesterol in the blood can increase your risk of getting heart and circulatory diseases.

Cholesterol is made up of both good (HDL) and bad (LDL) cholesterol so it is important to investigate a raised cholesterol result to determine the cause. High levels of HDL cholesterol can cause a raised cholesterol result but may actually be protective against heart disease.

C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is an inflammation marker

it does not identify where the inflammation is located. High Sensitivity CRP (CRP-hs) is a test which is used to detect low-level inflammation which is thought to damage blood vessels which can lead to a heart attack or stroke.

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

MINERALS

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

Magnesium is sourced through the diet,
