What is a hair mineral analysis?
It is an analysis test that measures mineral and heavy metal levels in the hair.


The hair follicle that is submitted is analyzed in a certified laboratory, where it undergoes a series of chemical and high temperature tests. The test is performed with sophisticated equipment & extraction methods, so you get the most accurate and credible answer.



What does a hair mineral analysis cost?

The analysis and detailed report with review of the result and treatment proposals cost DKK. 965, - / NOK 1450, -



Why use hair instead of blood?

Hair is the ideal tissue to test on. First and foremost, it is easy and painless to cut a small tot off and easy to send to us in the enclosed reply envelope. Second, clinical results have shown that testing the hair gives a good result of mineral levels and toxin accumulation from either prolonged or acute exposure.


A hair analysis reveals a unique metabolic world: intracellular activity that is not seen in many other tests. A blueprint of the biochemistry that takes place during the period the hair grows.


  • Heavy metals are only briefly in the blood, which is just a transport organ, until the heavy metals are deposited in depots in various organs. Chronic cumulative (accumulated) heavy metal poisoning occurs when the patient is exposed for a long time to small amounts of heavy metal, which are deposited in organs such as liver, kidneys, heart and brain. Chronic heavy metal poisoning can not be diagnosed in a normal. blood or urine sample.

  • Nutrient deficiencies can be so advanced and one can develop poor health before these levels of deficient nutrients are seen in the blood.

  • An example of how much hair can tell is the Egtved girl where the hair was analyzed to find out her DNA.



Why test for minerals?

Trace minerals are essential for many metabolic functions throughout all phases of one's life. Here are some examples:



Zinc stimulates the immune system (stabilizer of cell membranes) and the metabolism of protein and carbohydrate. Zinc is important for muscle growth. Zinc controls insulin production and contributes to the metabolism of keratin, which is important for skin, hair and nails. Zinc also helps with wound healing.


Zinc deficiency can manifest itself in weakened immune system, metabolic and growth disorders, hair loss, skin irritation and slow wound healing, disturbance of the sense of taste and smell, as well as the psyche (anorexia, postpartum depression, memory and concentration problems).


Oversupply can lead to gastrointestinal problems, anemia and weakening of the immune system.



Magnesium is part of about 300 enzymes and is important for metabolism. It is extremely important for the function of muscles, nerves, bones, teeth and connective tissue. It also contributes to the blood's ability to coagulate.

Magnesium deficiency can lead to dizziness, unconsciousness, restlessness and tremors, cardiovascular disorders, weight loss, concentration and memory problems, muscle cramps and loss of coordination.

In healthy people, magnesium overdose is harmless.



Silicon is important for the elasticity and strength of blood vessels. It influences the growth of hair and nails and the immune system.

Silicon deficiency can lead to weakening of bone tissue, gingivitis, caries and hair loss.

No adverse effects are known in humans due to oversupply,  except in the case of porous "silicone implants".


How is the hair cut for a hair mineral analysis?

In general, it is important for the reliability of the hair mineral analysis that the sampling is performed correctly. 

In all cases, a sufficiently large sample material is required, ie at least 0.25 g.


Use clean scissors. Use only the original plastic bag and remember to affix the name of the plastic bag.



How quickly do I get an answer?

Once we have received your hair sample and payment, it will take approx. 10 working days.


What can be to blame for mineral imbalance?
There can be many factors at play here.


Stress - both physical and mental stress can help to drain the body of nutrients and affect its absorption.


Diet - if you eat very refined and processed food and drink a lot of alcohol it can result in a chemical imbalance. Even a healthy diet that is poor in nutrients can also result in a deficit.


Pollution - We are constantly exposed to toxins e.g. from cigarettes (cadmium), hair dye (lead), hydrogenated oils (nickel), deodorants (aluminum), dental fillings (mercury & cadmium), kitchen utensils with copper and aluminum and lead-based cosmetics. Being exposed to these toxins acutely or for a long time can create imbalances in our body.


Supplements -  if you use supplements incorrectly, this can also result in a biochemical imbalance.



Need a therapist?

The report we submit is very complete and includes treatment proposals.


If you use a therapist, the analysis test is sent to the therapist, who compares the analysis answer with the person in question and reviews it in detail and in close dialogue with you.


The therapist will be able to offer a course where you are followed to ensure that the balance is restored.



Is hair mineral analysis a recognized method?

Yes, a hair mineral analysis is a recognized method to uncover one's mineral balance as well as levels of heavy metals.

The analyzes have been used in Denmark for more than 30 years.

Can one deduce anything about one's vitamin status in a hair mineral analysis?


Minerals interact not only with each other but also with vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates and fats.


Minerals affect each of these factors and they also affect your mineral status. Minerals act as enzyme activators, and vitamins are synergistic with minerals as co enzymes. It is extremely rare for a mineral disorder to develop without a similar disorder in the synergistic vitamin (s). It is also rare that a disturbance in the use or activity of​​ a vitamin occurs without affecting a synergistic mineral (s).


Vitamin C, for example, affects iron absorption and reduces copper retention. Boron and iron affect the status of vitamin B2. Vitamin B2 affects the ratio of calcium to magnesium. Vitamin B1 improves sodium retention, B12 improves iron and cobalt absorption, and vitamin A improves the utilization of​​ zinc, while antagonizing vitamins D and E.


Protein intake affects zinc status, etc. Therefore, the mineral condition assesses good indications of vitamin status and requirements. Continued research on trace elements involves the recognition of many synergistic and antagonistic relationships between minerals and vitamins.
