Questions about minerals deficiency:

  • Why should I test for mineral deficiency?

    The Mineral Deficiency Test tells you how good your body's supply of the important minerals Magnesium, Selenium and Zinc is. All three are essential minerals - i.e. minerals that your body cannot produce from within.

    If you develop a deficiency of one of these three minerals, this may have an effect on your health— from the dreaded leg cramps to the risk of developing various diseases. But an excess of magnesium, selenium or zinc can also pose other health risks.

  • How does the Mineral Deficiency Test work?

    For the Mineral Deficiency Test, a lancet is used to take a small blood sample from your fingertip. A few drops of blood are applied to a dry blood card, which is then sent by prepaid return envelope to a certified lab. The lab then analyzes the concentration of the minerals magnesium, selenium and zinc in your capillary blood.

  • What do the Mineral Deficiency Test results tell me?

    The detailed result report contains the results of the laboratory analysis:
    - Zinc in millimoles per litre of blood
    - Selenium in micrograms per litre of blood
    - Magnesium in milligrams per litre of blood

    For comparison, you will find the respective ranges of reference values of your ideal mineral concentrations.

    The report also provides you with valuable information about the three minerals and provides you with individualized tips on how to optimize your levels with a balanced diet and dietary supplements.

  • What is Magnesium?

    Magnesium is involved in numerous processes in the body. These include the function of muscles and nerves, the development of bones and teeth as well as regular heart function.

    When there is a magnesium deficiency, muscle cramps, fatigue, poor physical performance, concentration problems, headaches as well as tingling and numbness may occur.

  • Where do I get Magnesium?

    Magnesium is found mainly in plant foodssuch as fruit, vegetables and whole grain products. Pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, quinoa and oats have a lot to offer. We also consume a large part of our requirements via liquids, for example via mineral water, coffee and tea. If you have a deficiency, you can also try food supplements with magnesium.

  • What is Selenium?

    Selenium forms important proteins in the body. It strengthens the immune system and protects the cells from damage. It also supports the function of vitamins, thyroid hormones and sperm formation. A selenium deficiency occurs more frequently in heavy smokers and alcoholics, in women who breastfeed for a long time and in people with intestinal diseases. The deficiency manifests itself with fatigue, muscle weakness, immune deficiency and depressive moods.

  • Where do I get Selenium?

    Selenium is contained in vegetables and animal products - especially in coconuts and Brazil nuts. The exact content depends on the selenium content of the soil in which the food was grown. Due to climate change, many soils have lost selenium which means less selenium in our food. If you take aselenium supplement, you should be careful to not exceed 45 milligrams per day.

  • What is Zinc?

    Zinc is important for a strong immune system, the growth of skin and hair and healing wounds quickly. Zinc, along with Selenium, also binds to toxic heavy metals and protects the body from damage.

    A  zinc deficiency is associated with symptoms such as loss of appetite, diarrhea, muscle cramps and delayed healing of wounds.

  • Where do I get Zinc?

    Zinc is present in a wide variety of foods— in large quantities for example in oysters, cheese, chicken eggs, offal and sunflower seeds, and also to a lesser extent in cereals, nuts and legumes. Your body can however absorb zinc from animal products much better than that from plants. For a diagnosed zinc deficiency, you can take zinc supplements - the best of which are the zinc compound preparations such as zinc histidine, which the body can utilize very effectively.

  • What happens if I have an excess of minerals?

    You may not have too little magnesium, selenium or zinc in your body but rather a mineral surplus. For example, too much selenium can increase the risk of diabetes and prostate cancer, too much zinc can interfere with the absorption of other minerals, and too much magnesium can cause diarrhea and gastrointestinal problems.

    You usually don't run the risk of excess minerals through a natural diet, but can happen if you ingest high doses or take long-term food supplements. For this reason, you should only take minerals via preparations for a longer period of time if you have a diagnosed deficiency of the respective substance.
