Vitamins & Minerals

Vitamins & Minerals

So many symptoms and health conditions are caused primarily by, or at the very least exacerbated by, nutrient imbalances.

This page would be enormous if I discussed all of them so, instead, here are some useful resources where you can get some info about the different vitamins and minerals and their complex relationships. These are resources I use all the time. There are many more but these are a good starting point:

ARL (Analytical Research Labs) in the US do hair testing and their resources are quite good. In fact, their test is very similar to the ratio one I offer from Mineral Check here.

Here is their Minerals page which details some quite interesting relationship stuff for toxic metals and minerals. They have quite a few articles here too.

In fact, most of the labs do some good resources, mainly for practitioners.

Genova does a really good Nutrient Interpretive Guide, which is available on their site as a resource for the Nutrient & Toxic Elements test I favour, again on the Nutrients Tests page here.

Do read the full Overview on that page about testing because I have found different nutrients are best tested in different ways. It is a bit of a minefield, but I’ll keep you up to date with the latest on the Overview page there.

In the pages of this section, you will also find a few factsheets for nutrients I get asked a lot about so do check those too for specific advice eg. on magnesium, folate, Vitamin D etc.
