To the Questions!
Why test for minerals?

Trace minerals are essential in countless metabolic functions. For example, zinc is necessary for insulin production and regulation. Magnesium is required for muscle function, including the heart. Potassium plays a crucial role in transporting nutrients into cells. Every trace mineral in the body has a purpose and often it is a combination of different minerals that work in synergy, so the right levels of them all are essential to optimize these functions. However too much calcium for example, can reduce the beneficial side effects of vitamin A, while excessive copper can upset zinc levels. So determining the true nutrient levels in your body is key to optimizing your general health.

If I feel fine, and my doctor says I am well, then why should I be concerned about my mineral levels?

Minerals are the building blocks of life, vital substances your body does not produce naturally. Whilst your doctor might say you are healthy you may not be operating to your full potential. An imbalance in your body’s minerals can prevent you from performing at 100% looking your best and feeling your best.

So how can an imbalance of minerals really affect me?

Many conditions can be contributed to, or aggravated by, various mineral imbalances and toxic excesses. These can range from short-term problems such as depression, headaches, low energy and insomnia to longer-term conditions including hair loss, heart problems, and infertility, breathing difficulties, cholesterol levels and many more. By addressing your body’s needs you are taking a step towards improving your well-being as well as your long-term health.
