Some hair treatments that contain lead acetate, shampoos that contain selenium or zinc, and bleaching processes may contaminate scalp hair. However, only in some cases the individual element maybe affected, as the Hair Mineral Analysis testing machine is calibrated to take into account any noted hair treatment and dyes in most cases.
Blood tests provides information about your mineral levels at the time of the test only. For example, if you've just consumed banana, your test can indicate a high potassium level, even though you may actually need potassium supplementation. Hair analysis results on the other hand, provides an indication of your overall potassium levels over a period of time, not just what you ate that day or even that week. Testing for minerals in the urine measures the minerals that are being excreted from your body - not necessarily what has been absorbed as fuel for your body. Hair analysis provides a history of your mineral retention where as blood and urine test are snapshots that can change depending on your food lifestyle/food consumption on any given day.
Hair tissue mineral analysis is supported by a variety of national and international scientific publications that are conducted by both private and government research agencies. We have partnered with one of the top accredited labs in Ontario that specialize solely in Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis for over 15 years and work directly with one of the pioneers for this method of testing for minerals.
