Diet, lifestyle, and genetics all affect how we absorb and use essential minerals and vitamins. When levels of these vitamins and minerals are low they cause tiredness and brain fog, and can affect our ability to deal with stress. To correct this safely and accurately a quick blood test allows us to calculate your precise requirement or to reassure you that you don’t need any help at all.
Example: B12 is a common supplement taken to improve energy. A Harvard study showed that 3.2% adults over 50 are severely deficient with a further 20% borderline deficient. It will have a large impact on that 20%, but for 80% it will do nothing. Without testing it’s impossible to know which group you are in. Wouldn’t you rather know?
