Plant-Based Diet

A vegan or plant-based diet has been proven to have positive health benefits. However, those following a more limiting diet can also be at risk of becoming deficient in some core nutrients important for maintaining good health.

Our plant-based health check is a finger-prick blood test the sample for which can be collected at home. The test profile has been specifically created to focus on those biomarkers which are more at risk when following a vegan or plant-based diet. This includes, Active B12, Zinc, Ferritin (iron), Calcium and Vitamin D. 

Your test results will be reviewed by one of our registered dieticians and be made available within days on your personal biometric dashboard.  Here you can track how your markers change with the adjustments you make as well as picking up tips and information.

What our customers say

I enlisted the help of Forth to help me get to the bottom of my current health concerns. The test was really easy to and my results were available within day. Using Forth has helped me take the action needed to get my hormones back on track.

Holly Rush, 39

As a working mum, I often find myself training ‘tired’ as the demands of day-to-day life take their toll.  Forth has enabled me to gain a valuable insight into what is happening ‘under the surface’, so I  can adapt my training and lifestyle.

Kate Allan

Forth really helped me understand issues that I was having, which in the end turned out to be problems with iron absorption. Without their test I would never have known this. I now have the knowledge I need to improve.

Sean Conway

As a former Olympic cyclist I always wanted to look after my health. This has never changed to this day but become a lot easier via Forth, it’s the only way to really understand your own body. 

Brian Smith

I was keen to use Forth’s service to help monitor my haematological markers in particular since I've had problems in the past and by the time they are picked up by the GP I'm normally feeling unwell.  The test was quick and easy to do and results were back very quickly. The results are also incredibly accurate, being almost identical to those from tests done by my GP the same day.

Alice Lethbridge

Taking the test is simple just make sure you follow all the instructions so you follow the correct procedures. The customer service is second to none and the results are easy to understand and follow.

Matthew Bottrill

I ran my first marathon in 2014 which left me feeling exhausted and constantly unwell. What I didn’t know then was that my iron and vitamin D levels were incredibly low.  By using Forth to test key biomarkers has put me in control of the areas I need to improve.

Jude Peck, 42

I'd put off getting regular blood tests before because of the long-winded process of a GP visit. Forth has changed all that. The process is very quick and very easy, with thorough, well-explained results delivered to your inbox within days.

Alice Hector

I suffer from a hereditary condition which causes my body to store too much iron.  My biggest issue before using Forth was getting an appointment with my GP.  Now using Forth I can track my iron quickly and easily and take action before levels start to affect my health
