Vitamin & Mineral Assessment
Allergenics Vitamin & Mineral Assessment Hair Test. The Vitamin and Mineral Assessment is recommended for individuals of all ages and is able to provide information on the nutritional state of a person, detecting the presence of vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids in the body. It does not provide physiological levels of nutrients in the body, but may provide information on whether a nutrient is deficient, in balance or in excess. This makes it ideal for those on a restricted diet, on medication or for anyone wanting a vitamin and mineral assessment. Suitable for all ages (a hair sample is required). 1 hair test

The Vitamin and Mineral Assessment is a safe and non-invasive energy based test that utilises hair analysis to evaluate the presence of vitamins and minerals in the human body. The hair test analysis reports on deficiencies or an excess of nutrients that are of most importance to the body and its functioning. A comprehensive profile for each nutrient is provided in the results section, including dietary and environmental sources of each nutrient. The hair test report will provide information on the presence of nutrients for the past 3 months.
Where applicable, the test will also provide nutritional supplement recommendations which are aimed at bringing nutrient levels back into balance.
This test is suitable for those individuals on restricted diets, chronic medication or for those who are just interested in their current nutrient status.

Nutrients are essential for life
Nutrients are essential to one’s health and well-being and deficiencies in certain nutrients may contribute to a range of illnesses. Nutritional deficiencies may contribute to problems in the following areas:
- Hormone Function
- Neurotransmitter Function
- Food Digestion
- Skin Health
- Bone Formation
- Energy Production
- Antioxidant Function
Most nutrients are supplied to us through food and water, and are used by the body in its day to day activities. Most of the nutrients that our bodies require are “essential”. This means that our bodies cannot manufacture them and need to obtain them from the diet.
Processed foods and modern agricultural practices tend to deplete essential nutrients from food and therefore many of today’s diets lack an adequate complement of essential nutrients.
Living in a modern world has delivered the body an array of new challenges: increased stress, nutritionally-low convenience foods and a chemical-laden environment.
All these factors impact negatively on our lifestyles and place additional strain on the body, increasing its nutritional requirements. Research has consistently shown that adequate levels of essential nutrients allow the body to function at an optimal level and aid good health and recovery.
Allergenics Vitamin & Mineral Assessment
The Allergenics testing method uses a unique energy measurement technology that can detect disruptions to normal energy patterns in the body. Each nutrient has a particular energy pattern that can be measured. When levels of a particular nutrient are unbalanced in the body i.e. there is too little (deficiency) or too much (excess) it may cause a change to the body’s normal function, causing stress to the body. Using special energy measurement technology, these changes can be measured and the particular nutrient can be identified.
This helps to provide one with information on their nutritional health and how to balance deficiencies and excesses.
The Vitamin and Mineral Assessment is recommended for individuals of all ages. It is able to provide information on the nutritional state of a person, detecting the presence of vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids in the body.
