Who should take the test?

The Essential Mineral Test is especially beneficial for individuals with increased mineral consumption or inadequate intake. This includes athletes, pregnant women, the elderly, and those experiencing high levels of daily stress. Additionally, individuals with chronic digestive problems, leading to reduced mineral absorption, are more likely to be affected by deficiencies.

Test measures
For the Essential Mineral Test we analyze:
  • Magnesium
  • Zinc
  • Selenium
Magnesium

Magnesium is an essential factor for many enzyme systems. One of its primary roles is its involvement in energy production. Additionally, magnesium is required for the metabolism of glucose. It supports insulin production and facilitates the transport of blood sugar into cells by insulin. Magnesium also helps protect against insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.

Zinc

Zinc generally plays important roles in protein, carbohydrate, and fat metabolism. As a component of many different enzymes, it serves countless functions in the body. Zinc is crucial for the functioning of various hormones (such as insulin, thyroid hormones, growth hormones, and sexual hormones). Additionally, zinc strengthens the immune system.

Selenium

Selenium is one of the essential trace elements. Its primary function is to protect cells from harmful stressors. As an antioxidant, it shields cells from oxidative stress caused by free radicals. Selenium contributes to thyroid hormone production and also aids in detoxifying heavy metals such as lead or mercury.

Any Questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this test. Your question is missing? Please contact us at:

Why is it important to test essential minerals?

Testing essential minerals is crucial because these minerals play essential roles in various bodily functions, including metabolism, immune function, and hormone regulation. Imbalances or deficiencies in these minerals can lead to health issues, so it's important to monitor their levels regularly.

How can I counteract a magnesium deficiency?

Magnesium is mainly found in wheat bran, sunflower seeds, cocoa powder, whole oats, cashew nuts, pumpkin seeds, and flaxseeds. Since any form of stress increases the consumption of magnesium, effective stress management is also helpful in counteracting magnesium deficiency.

Which foods contain particularly high amounts of zinc?

Zinc is particularly found in oysters, beef liver, as well as in muscle meats such as beef and veal. Additionally, many nuts and seeds also contain high amounts of zinc (such as pine nuts, pumpkin seeds, or sunflower seeds). Moreover, grains often have a high zinc content, including wheat germ or oats.

How can one counteract a selenium deficiency?

Selenium is found in higher quantities in various fish (such as tuna, sardines, herring). Other good sources of selenium can include coconuts, Brazil nuts, wheat bran, and eggs.

I am not getting enough blood from my finger, what can I do?

Ensure optimal conditions for the blood draw: Hold your hand under warm water for an extended period and gently rotate your arm to enhance blood circulation. When pricking the finger, aim for the side rather than the direct top of the fingertip. Typically, the middle or ring finger of the non-dominant hand is most suitable. While piercing, place your finger on a stable surface to prevent reflexive withdrawal. Applying a gentle squeeze and massaging towards the fingertip can facilitate blood flow.
