Hair Analysis

Trace Mineral Analysis is a test which measures the mineral content of your hair.  Mineral content of the hair reflects the mineral content of the body's tissues.  If a mineral deficiency or excess exists in the hair, it usually indicates a mineral deficiency or excess in the body, or biounavailability.

Why Test for Minerals?

Trace Mineral Analysis is a test which measures the mineral content of your hair.  Mineral content of the hair reflects the mineral content of the body's tissues.  If a mineral deficiency or excess exists in the hair, it usually indicates a mineral deficiency or excess in the body, or biounavailability.

Mineral Blueprint

Providing a mineral blueprint of one's biochemistry, a hair tissue mineral analysis can provide pertinent information about one's metabolic rate, energy levels, and stage of stress.

A hair tissue mineral analysis performed by Analytical Research Labs, Inc., is a screening test for the level of 20 minerals and toxic metals in a sample of hair. It is a tissue mineral biopsy that is non-invasive, relatively inexpensive and extremely accurate. Our laboratory uses only the most advanced and sophisticated instrumentation available today, the Perkin Elmer ICP-MS nexION 2000B Mass Spectrometer to assess mineral levels in parts per million or parts per billion.

A hair tissue mineral analysis is considered a standard test used around the world for the biological monitoring of trace elements and toxic metals in humans and animals species. The same technology is used for soil testing and testing of rock samples to detect mineral levels.

Hair, like all other body tissues, contains minerals that are deposited as the hair grows. Although the hair is dead, the minerals remain as the hair continues to grow out. A sample of hair cut close to the scalp provides information about the mineral activity in the hair that took place over the past three to four months, depending on the rate of hair growth.
