How else will you know if you actually need to be taking any of the supplements you're paying for? What if they were actually harming your health because you were already overloaded - with calcium for example?

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.
Your hair sample can reveal a lot of things about you. 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 state.
Easy To Do
HTMAs (Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis) from Upgraded Formulas are easy to take. Collecting your hair sample will only take a few minutes. They're fast, too. Your results will come in within 2 days of our lab that receives the sample. In the age of Facebook, your data is completely private. A single tablespoon of hair is enough to tell you all you need to know about your health.
Save Money On Supplements
