Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis


HTMA is a test that measures the mineral composition of hair. It is a safe and non-invasive test that reflects the level of nutrient and toxic elements in body tissue. Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis provides clinical data missed by standard blood, urine and stool testing. While blood, urine and stools tests show the recent and current body status the hair represents a longer time frame.

Importance of Minerals

Minerals are essential for growth, healing, vitality and wellbeing. They provide structural support in bones and teeth and maintain the body’s pH, water balance, nerve activity, muscle contractions, energy production and enzyme reactions. They are the basic ‘spark plugs’ of life.
