The Validity of Hair Mineral Analysis

Hair Mineral Analysis is a commonly used screening test with a history of over 30 years in the U.S. and recognized by the U.S. Agency for Toxic Substances and Diseases Registry as well as the Environmental Protection Agency.

Compared to blood or urine tests, the advantages of hair mineral analysis are:

  1. Hair accumulates every vital mineral in the body.
  2. Toxic metals in the hair tend to represent a similar ratio of toxic metals found in the environment.
  3. Easy to collect, keep and transport samples.
  4. Unlike the blood, minerals in the hair will not vary every hour or day.
