The Large Vitamin TEST is for checking the most important vitamins in your body. Deficiency in vitamins can lead to all sorts of health issues, including depression, fatigue, anaemia, reoccurring infections, or cancer.
The total value of the Large Vitamin TEST is 225,70 Euros. Your price is only 169 Euros.
The Large Vitamin TEST includes:
- Vitamin D (lab analysis)
- Vitamin B12 (lab analysis)
- Vitamin B9 – Folate (lab analysis)
- Homocysteine (lab analysis)
- Vitamin C (lab analysis)
- An individualised document for getting your blood sampling done
- A 30-minute appointment for the revision of your lab analyses in my therapy room
- Your lab results, via email and printed
- Information for the individual adjustment of Vitamin D target value
- Information for individually adjusting B-Vitamins
- A suggestion which B-Vitamin or Vitamin D3 containing supplements to take
WHAT HAPPENS ONCE YOU ORDER YOUR TEST?
Upon ordering the Large Vitamin TEST, you will get an individualised document to get you a blood sampling in the closest place to your home. This is usually done in Barbate, Chiclana, or Cádiz. Your lab results are usually ready 48 hours after blood sampling.
When the lab results are ready, we will meet together in my therapy room for a 45-minute appointment to revise the level of your vitamin D, essential B-vitamins, homocysteine, and vitamin C. If you are lacking any vitamins, I will advise you how to supplement them or how to get them from every day food.
After our appointment, I will send you a copy of your lab analyses and – if necessary – further information on how to supplement lacking vitamins you are lacking. Furthermore, you will get a document on how to supplement Vitamin D3 to reach your individual target value.
What is this test about?
Measuring the essential B-vitamins (Vitamin B12 and Vitamin B9) is especially important for vegans or vegetarians, as they are at increased risk of lacking them. Deficiency in vitamin B12 and/or vitamin B9 (Folate) can lead to a certain type of anaemia, where erythrocytes are hyperchromic and megaloblastic.
The reason why you should get your Vitamin D level checked, is that more than 75% of the people have a lack of vitamin D. International experts in the field recommend a target Vitamin D level of 40-60 ng/ml 25-OH Vitamin D (Calcidiol)1, 2.
Vitamin D is important for your bones, your calcium metabolism, and protects you against cancer. Studies3-12 have consistently shown, that a minimal Vitamin D blood value of 40 ng/ml is required to make sure you actually lower your overall cancer risk significantly.
