Special instructions

Please take your sample in the morning. Fasting is optional for this test. Eating fatty foods might affect the results of a small number of blood tests so we may advise a retest when you are fasted. If you are interested in your triglyceride, LDL or omega 3 levels, then we do recommend fasting. Avoid taking a finger-prick sample from a finger used to handle hormone-gels or hormone-pessaries in the past 4 weeks. Do not take biotin supplements for 2 days prior to this test. If you are taking prescribed biotin you should discuss this with your doctor. Avoid heavy exercise and eating meat-rich meals for 48 hours before your test. You should take this test before you take any vitamin or mineral supplements. Do not take vitamin B12 for one week prior to this test. If your B12 is prescribed ask your doctor whether you should stop before testing.
Making exercise a regular part of your life can transform your health. And just seeing the improvements you can make to your health by taking part in a regular activity can be hugely motivating. 

This test is perfect for establishing your baseline levels of 16 biomarkers before you get started and for monitoring your progress along the way. Track changes to your inner health as your fitness levels improve, and learn how informed changes to your diet and lifestyle can help improve your overall performance and recovery.

This test gives an excellent insight into any health risks that you may have as well as an understanding of why your progress in the gym might not be as you hoped. It Includes tests for liver function and cholesterol as well as tests for energy, muscle, inflammation and vitamins.
