It can be a worry, not knowing whether our wee ones get all the vitamins and minerals that they need.
Unfortunately, imbalances can contribute to problems such as hormonal health (even in teens), sleep, mood, food digestion, skin health, bone formation, energy production and antioxidant function/cell health, anaemia to name a few.

WOULD A NUTRITION PROFILE BE USEFUL FOR MY CHILD?
Nutrients are essential to your health and well-being. They are the building blocks for every cell, nerve and organ.
Most of the nutrients that the body requires are essential, meaning that your body cannot make them and you need to get them from your diet.
WHAT CAN CAUSE A NUTRIENT DEFICIENCY?
Processed foods and modern agricultural practices have depleted many nutrients from our food. So even when we eat a mostly whole food diet, we can still end up being depleted of essential nutrients such as Vitamin C or Selenium.
A fussy pallet or a small variety of foods in children and teens is very common.
Living in today's modern world has delivered the body an array of new challenges:
Increased stress and anxiety, especially during teenage years
Nutritionally-low convenience foods such as junk foods and energy drinks
A chemical-laden environment
Certain dis-eases and conditions make it difficult to eat or absorb enough nutrients for our bodies to function optimally:
Crohn's disease, Ulcerative colitis, Diverticulitis, Coeliac disease
Disordered eating - Anorexia nervosa and bulimia
WHAT THE NUTRIENT PROFILE TESTS FOR
The Comprehensive Nutrition Profile tests for a full range of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, digestive enzymes, essential fatty acids and specialised nutrients.
The nutritional status of an individual depends on a number of factors, the main ones being diet, digestive efficiency and nutrient absorption. This test fully assesses your nutritional status as well as how well your child digest their food.
The test report will provide you with a full nutrient profile, including information on its food and environmental sources, possible deficiency signs and possible toxicity signs.
