Nutritional Health Test

Our nutritional health check is an advanced blood test which requires blood to be drawn from a vein. This test measures a range of vitamins and minerals that are essential to maintaining good health.

This nutritional health test will identify any vitamin or mineral deficiencies, in order to enable you to make the necessary adjustments to your diet or to compensate with supplements where required.

We check for all key vitamins and minerals, as well as hs-CRP, which measures the level of inflammation in your body – something that can increase if your diet is poor.

Why take a nutritional health test?

  • You are proactively seeking to monitor the impact of your diet
  • You want to know how good your diet is
  • Identify the ways in which you can improve your diet

Benefits of nutritional health testing

We can monitor and track a huge number of markers relating to our nutritional health. Many of us will monitor what we eat, track calories, sugar intake and carbs, for example. We’ll monitor our weight and our waist sizes too.

But to truly get control over your nutritional health and its impact on your overall health, you need to gain deeper insight. Our nutrition blood test allows just that, checking the levels of key vitamins and minerals to tell you where you’d benefit from improving your diet.

We also make monitoring your nutritional health really easy. Simply tell us where you live and we will arrange an appointment at your nearest clinic or in some areas we can even come to you. Once we've collected your sample, it’s over to our accredited labs, where we analyse the vitamin and mineral levels within your blood and provide a thorough yet easy to understand online dashboard with your results.

It was trying to better understand my health (and improve it) what intrigued me to take a Forth blood test. Ordering the test was easy and I received a notification email that my results were ready just 1 day after the blood sample was taken.  The dashboard is pretty cool and an easy way to track how many biomarkers are in normal range, which ones need attention and finally which food types can help to optimise these biomarkers.
