Save Money On Supplements
Our hair test results will show you the vitamins and nutrients you have in deficiency or excess. We've had many customers purchasing hundreds of dollars of vitamins only to discover that they weren't treating the root cause of their health issues. You'll know exactly what you need to do to put your health back on track.
How else will you know if you actually need to be taking any of the supplements you're paying for? In some cases, hair test results reveal they can actually be harming your health because you were already overloaded. Calcium is a common mineral that you may be overconsuming.
In that case, you would be paying for a supplement that is costing you your vitality, energy, and good mood. So what do we recommend?
Well, it's true that getting a hair mineral analysis test is one of the best things you can do for your health. In fact, these hair tests are more accurate than blood or urine tests for your mineral deficiency, heavy metal toxicity, and metabolism.
Your hair sample can reveal a lot about your health. Hair test results include your levels of nutritional elements such as Calcium, Zinc, and Magnesium. They’ll show your levels of heavy metals, and any extra elements inside your hair that reflect your body’s current state.

They went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied with my order. They fixed an issues I caused without hesitation. Much appreciated.
Very simple and easy to use, the instructions were clear and concise. Just waiting on my results, pretty excited to see the results!
Happy that in this post-covid world, that I did not have to leave my house to get a feel for how my health is shaping up after my last test. This is about as easy as it gets. I just watched the video. Thanks for making it easy.
The consultation I did was very eye opening. I thought I understood the toxicity section but I'm glad I did the hair analysis consultation. I chose the 45 minute consultation because I wanted more time to understand the questions Ive had for so many years now. I now do these every 90 days and feel much more confident I am going in the right direction with my health. I hope you see the same results! Thank you, J.Connor
Results can in about 7 days after I sent my hair sample off to the Upgraded Formulas' lab. It was an easy process once I realized everything I needed was provided in the kit. I thought I would need to use my own postage but postage came as a prepaid sticker I put on the poly bag. That was the only part that took a moment to figure out.
