Vit D Level Test

Take our easy to use Vitamin D test to discover if you are deficient.

The best way to discover vitamin D deficiency is to take a blood test that will measure the level of the vitamin in your blood. The only way to know for sure if a certain dosage is working for you is to have your vitamin D levels tested. Occasional monitoring of these levels will help one determine what dose is right for you. The amount needed to raise and/or maintain blood serum levels for one person may not be enough for another. This is due to variable factors such as age, weight, absorption, overall health, and amount of sun exposure.

It is estimated that over 50% of the global population is at risk from vitamin D deficiency with people living in countries with limited daily exposure to sunshine such as the UK at greater risk.*

Once thought only to benefit bone health, there is now a growing body of evidence to suggest that vitamin D plays a huge role in the overall health of the body. It has even been suggested that vitamin D should be reclassified as a hormone. This is why one of the most important things you can do for your health is to learn about the benefits of proper sunlight exposure and vitamin D supplementation.

These include anxiety, chronic inflammatory conditions, allergies, chronic fatigue syndrome, insomnia, depression, migraines, headaches, recurrent infections, menstrual difficulties and infertility.

Additionally, this hormone testing profile includes the Adrenocortex Stress Profile and the Comprehensive Melatonin Profile to reveal how the sex hormones are influenced by cortisol, DHEA, and melatonin. Hormone imbalances revealed in this hormone test can help illuminate root causes of disorders such as premenstrual syndrome (PMS), infertility, and menstrual irregularities. Hormonal balance is the key. Research has long shown that fluctuating levels of estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone play a major role in a woman´s overall health.
