Vitality

The those who are looking for an annual health check, our Vitality package offers a comprehensive panel which measures over 40 biomarkers.  Gain insight into your liver and kidney function, cholesterol levels, hormones, key vitamins and minerals for energy, average sugar levels as well as blood count and thyroid function.

As this test covers such a wide range of biomarkers, a venous blood sample is required for analysis which must be drawn by a healthcare professional. But don’t worry we’ll ensure that is fast and convenient and will arrange for one of our mobile nurses to visit you at home or a locaiton of your choice.

Why take a Vitality test?

  • You want to check your existing health and ensure there are no areas which are a cause for concern.
  • You want to take proactive action to improve your health and want to know the point from which you are starting. 

Benefits of Vitality testing

We have more tools than ever at our disposable to help us to monitor our health. Wearable technology can help us to measure heart rate, activity and sleep, while there are devices and accompanying accessories to help us to easily track blood pressure and nutrition.  Yet unless we have private health insurance cover, many of us have little insight into the health of our bodies on the inside.

The Vitality test gives you an understanding of your health on the inside, with analysis of over 40 biomarkers you can gain reassurance of your health status or gain insight into key areas which need to be improved before they become problems.

What our customers say

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 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

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

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

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

Mark Threfall, 29

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 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

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

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.
