About flexible subscriptions

How does a subscription work?

When you purchase this test subscription plan, we will automatically send you another test kit in a few months. Don't worry - you have full control over when this will be, and you can change/cancel it anytime.

When you first purchase this test, you can choose your subscription options in the checkout. We do this, because we recommend taking multiple tests over time to track how your biomarkers change. You'll be charged per test kit (rather than monthly, for example).

Why subscribe to multiple tests?

One test will show you what areas you need to focus on, continued testing will help you learn how your training, diet and lifestyle is impacting your health.

How often should I test?

We recommend a follow up test 3 months after your first test, followed by a test every 6 months depending on your results, but its up to you!

Can I change what's tested in future tests?

Yes, you can tailor/customise subsequent tests (via your app) to focus on just the areas that need improving.

Frequently asked questions

This is what our customers ask us most about this test. For more information, try our help centre.

How can I improve my health?

Too often we take our health for granted, ignoring the fundamental areas of health that we should all be tracking and managing. The Baseline Health Check uses biomarkers across cholesterol, essential vitamins, hormones, HbA1c (average blood glucose), bone health, heart health, and liver & kidney health – allowing you to understand key biomarkers that are essential to spotting areas of risk and improvement.

The average individual can optimise their health by eating a balanced diet low in ultra-processed foods, exercising, getting plenty of sleep and recovery, reducing their alcohol intake, and quitting smoking.

What vitamins are good for my health?

The following vitamins are good for your health:

  • Vitamin A – keeps your heart, lungs, and other organs functioning well
  • Vitamin B complex – these vitamins help to convert proteins, fats, and carbohydrates into energy
  • Vitamin C – is essential to a correctly functioning immune system and aids in iron absorption
  • Vitamin D – is essential to bone health and a well functioning immune system
  • Vitamin E – helps to prevent blood clots, and ensures a well functioning immune system
  • Vitamin K – is essential to bone health and blood clotting
  • Calcium – ensures good bone health and teeth
  • Iron – essential for the healthy production of blood cells
  • Magnesium – is used in the formation of many enzymes
  • Zinc – is vital to immune health, normal growth, and development during pregnancy

What foods are good for my health?

Diet plays an important role in our general health – we are what we eat. It is important to eat a balanced diet low in ultra-processed foods. Great diets – and great tasting include:

  • mediterranean diet
  • vegan diet (ensure you get all the vitamins and minerals you need)
  • low carb, whole food diet
  • gluten free diet
  • paleo diet

Can my physical health impact my mental health?

Your physical health has an important impact on your mental health from feeling good about your physical appearance, having good energy levels, and ensuring your vitamins, minerals and hormones are well balanced to boost your mental health and quality of life.

How does the subscription work?

When you purchase this product you will be given the option to sign up to a subscription every 3, 4, 6 or 12 months. Your next test will then be sent out automatically and your payment card will be billed. You can manage your subscription through your own personal dashboard where you view your results. You can change the frequency or cancel the subscription at any time.

Important information regarding corrected calcium

Our labs have conducted stability validation on all the markers offered by Forth. Corrected Calcium has a shorter stability time than the majority of markers of around 2 – 3 days. Forth provides a Tracked 24 return envelope in all kits to return samples to the lab within 24 hours. In the majority of cases, samples are returned within the stability time. If a sample arrives outside this time, this result will not be provided to you.

How soon will the test arrive?

If you order your test before midday on a Monday to Friday then your kit will be dispatched
the same day.

All our kits are sent out via Royal Mail first class post, so it should be with you within 1-2
working days.

How secure is my data?

We have strict processes in place to ensure the protection of your data. Following GDPR the company also operates under tight legal rules about the sharing of data which ensures that data is only shared if it is crucial to the delivery of our service. For example, our doctors see customer results at the time of review, however, after review, access to results is withdrawn.

Learn more about your data security.

Can I have someone take my blood for me?

Yes. We offer two options if you do not want to do our finger prick test. The first is a home appointment where a nurse comes to your home to take a blood sample. The second is to visit a Phlebotomy clinic near you that offers a blood sample service.

A blood sample will be taken from your vein and we will provide you with everything you need to give to the nurse to allow them to take the sample.

The nurse will give you the blood sample to return to us using the pre-paid envelope provided.

Does a doctor review my results?

We have a team of doctors and nurses who look at all results and will comment on any results that are outside of the normal range for your age.

Can I download the results to share with my GP?

Yes, you can download your results from your health dashboard as a PDF to share with your GP.
