The Technology

Our hair test offers an accurate analysis of 35 different elements which include minerals, microminerals and metals. These are detected by ICP/MS (Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectroscopy), an advanced technology that can detect and quantify most of the periodic table elements in very small concentrations. This technology is also applied in the pharmaceutical field, forensics, geology, toxicology and more.

Reseach

We are always on a mission to extend our knowledge, conduct research and find conclusive evidence. We joined forces with Micro Trace Minerals and carried out the research “Chronic Metal Exposure, Air Pollution and Cancer in Haifa, Israel”, which was published in the British Journal of Medicine & Medical Research in 2015 and has received major attention worldwide.
