Why take this test?

Put your diet to the test

Most people can benefit from having their nutrients checked, but it’s especially important for those on a restrictive diet, such as vegans and vegetarians. Women planning on becoming pregnant may also want to pay extra attention to certain key nutrients, such as iron, folate and vitamin D.

Do I need to fast?

You must not eat or drink anything other than water for at least 10 hours before the test. It is recommended to be well hydrated before the test, but avoid caffeinated drinks such as black tea or coffee. It's also recommended to avoid strenuous exercise on the same day as having a blood test.

No hidden costs

Everything from the in-clinic blood draw and tracked shipment of samples to the lab, through to delivery of the results and medical report is included in the price.

Professional testing

This test is performed as an in-clinic blood draw by a trained health professional and the samples are analysed by UKAS accredited labs.

Markers included in the analysis

Most people wouldn’t know they lack any key vitamins or minerals unless they get tested for it. Luckily, most nutritional deficiencies are easily corrected once identified. Some nutritional deficiencies can have an immediate impact on your quality of life, such as extreme fatigue, headache and weakness caused by low iron levels. But with others the problems can go undetected for decades. Vitamin D deficiency is common in the UK, and can contribute to several problems such as increased susceptibility to infections, depression and weak bones.

Please note that this test should be taken while fasted, and only on weekdays (Monday - Friday).
