Metals Hair Test UK: Analysis for 7 Heavy Metals & 30 Elements

Hair mineral and toxins analysis test kit, HTMA; check a hair sample to discover mineral imbalances and toxic metal overload.

Toxic metals; "Heavy metals are individual metals and metal compounds that can impact human health" [1], there are many exposure routs; for example, mercury toxicity, mercury poisoning and contamination in the human body (dental labs historically used mercury for amalgam fillings).

How is it used

Heavy metals testing is utilised to screen (not as diagnosis) for heavy metal poisoning (acute or chronic). To monitor exposure to a number of heavy metals, it tests and measures the amount of (in particular) extremely toxic metals in the hair tissue (vs body fluid such as blood and urine, which are also used sometimes).

A laboratory can offer a number of different types of heavy metals screens on top of tests for specific metals. The most frequently combined include mercury, arsenic and lead. This test checks for 37 elements in total, however the interactions and effects of all toxin permutations are unknown.

More than just a test for heavy metals:- A small variation in your dietary habits or the supplements you take daily can make a big difference to your health. The delicate balance of nutrients and minerals in your body can easily be disturbed. Adjusting the beneficial ratios of minerals present (like zinc or magnesium) can make a big difference.

The test can help you make informed decisions about your health. With dietary recommendations, a complete vitamin and mineral analysis   and supplements regime to help you detox heavy metals and boost the immune system (compare with the basic test).

The sensitivity of the test detects elements recorded at milligrams percent ("milligrams per one-hundred grams of human hair") One mg% = ten parts per million (ppm).

test for heavy metals

Heavy metal toxicity

Existing in humans, we have all been exposed to the high levels of toxic metals over time, ever increasing amounts greater than the generations that came before us. We all have metals in our bodies; but how much is present varies, the challenge is to find out how much? Getting rid of them from the body can greatly enhance health, benefit cognitive functions and improve vitality, but how can we tell?

Hair mineral analysis is a toxicology screen that detects and measures metals including antimony, mercury, beryllium, uranium, cadmium, aluminium, arsenic, and lead. The test, instead of urine, stool or blood tests, can reveal heavy metals toxicities stored in the bones, brain and organs as they are mobilised and expressed in the hair.

Heavy metal toxicity can lower energy levels and damage the functioning of the brain, lungs, kidney, liver, blood composition and other important organs. Long-term exposure can lead to gradually progressing physical, muscular, and neurological degenerative processes that imitate diseases such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and muscular dystrophy. Repeated long-term exposure of some metals and their compounds may even cause cancer. [2]

How is the hair sample collected for testing?

Heavy metal testing using hair is performed in order to detect toxic metals and mineral ratios in a hair sample. Hair mineral toxins analysis is a good method to check your body for toxic element levels.

Being tested for heavy metals, with tests using hair to measure the quantity of toxic metals in your body, can give you a reading over a longer period of time (In comparison to blood or urine testing). Watch this short video to see exactly how to take a sample of hair for the test using the home test kit.

How to use the test?

Watch the video by Mineralstate (suppliers); here are the complete instructions of how to test hair for heavy metals and minerals in your system; (a systematic list to guide you is below the video).

The Purposes of Hair Analysis: Testing the Hair for Minerals & Heavy Metals

Hair analysis – get examined for heavy metals poisoning

What are heavy metals?

The definition of a heavy metal is a natural element that has a density and atomic weight of five times or more than that of water.

Because they are used widely in industry, agriculture, technology it has led to their prevalence in the environment leading to fears about their influence on human biochemistry and their environmental impact.

The route of exposure, the age of the subject and their genetics and nutritional status can all play a part in the toxicity of heavy metals.

The principal metals that lead to health problems for humans include arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead and mercury due to their high degree of toxicity.

Even at low levels of exposure these five metallic elements are toxic and can lead to severe organ damage, they are also cacogenic.

Their toxicity, genotoxicity and the fact that they are cacogenic makes it an important area of study and analysis by the medical establishment and scientists as they try to ascertain environmental levels and health related issues associated with exposure.

Metals hair test

Heavy metals toxicity in humans has grown as the usage of chemicals in industry and the levels of pollution from our environment increases.

Toxic metals are deposited in in our body’s tissues and organs, high levels of dangerous toxic metals can lead to a range of serious health conditions for adults and children including developmental and neurological damage.

If you want to ascertain your levels of exposure to toxic metals then a metals hair test is a useful device. The use of hair as a biomarker can provide health practitioners with a tool to ascertain the levels of essential elements and harmful toxic elements in our bodies.

The reasons to undertake a metals hair test

Over many years, the science behind the measurement of hair element levels has been refined and improved to determine the level of elements in human hair samples.

Because hair is not regulated by the homeostatic mechanisms, it has distinct advantages over blood and urine. Primarily it is possible to detect variations in hair element levels before any symptoms can be detected of physiological problems occur overtly.

Used in conjunction with other diagnostic procedures hair metals analysis is a useful tool for physicians to help in diagnosis of problems and disorders in the human body related to toxic elements and their metabolism.

The use of the hair (not the follicle) is ideal because once the elements are recorded in a tissue sample it acts as a permanent record.

As the hair grows, it incorporates a record of the elemental status of the subject and their exposure to toxic elements that is why it is an ideal medium for sampling.

The levels of nutrient elements in hair are proportionate with the levels in organs and other tissues; It is not practical to take samples of bones or other organs for elemental levels, which is why hair is the ideal tissue sample.

Our bodies require nutrient elements to function; they play an important role in the absorption of certain vitamins and are responsible for many functions within cells in the body.

The body does not store toxic elements in the blood or urine; in fact, the hair can retain a much higher concentration of elements.

Therefore, hair is an ideal tissue for the detection of exposure to harmful elements, of particular concern is the presence of mercury levels as this is can be transferred to infants from mothers through their neurotoxic methylmercury exposure from the consumption of fish such as tuna.

As the procedure of hair sample testing for toxic elements has improved over the last 40 years, so has its reliability and usefulness as an effective tool for analysis of essential elements for doctors and patients alike.

Provided the testing is conducted by a reputable laboratory and the sampling, procedure is carried out correctly and the sample is handled by professional trained staff then it is considered a precise analytical method for the determination of nutritional and toxic elements.

The analysis of heavy metals in a hair strand should not be considered as a diagnostic test but rather a screening test for the detection of irregular levels of elements.

The data obtained should be viewed by a trained professional and assessed with the help of other laboratory tests.

    The test was used primarily for testing Mercury toxicity and confirmed this using the counting method. Correctly identified my adrenal exhaustion, my metabolic type and that I have type 2 insomnia where you fall asleep okay but wake in the early hours and sometimes struggle getting back to sleep. Interestingly showed my potassium to be very low, whilst a serum blood test a week later showed a high blood level. The hair test was confirming that the potassium was not being transported to the cells and was much more useful than a blood test.
    Good value for money.

    I found the pricing to be competitive and the customer service was great. The report was easy to read and understand, and very comprehensive. The only thing I would have liked to have seen available would be a discounted retest option when purchasing a test. For many of us we are investigating a health concern, with the intention of treating any deficiencies. Therefore, a retest after 3 months or so is often recommended.

I used this test out of interest and not because I was suffering with health issues, my metabolic type was analysed correctly and luckily I have no real issues related to mineral deficiencies according to the test, which I assumed, would be the case. I would recommend to anyone struggling with unknown health symptoms.

    Yes, an Interesting find from my hair analysis, which came back in approximately 10 days from posting back the hair sample.

    Quite a detailed and informative report which took a bit of time to comprehend but my suspicions were correctly found showing mercury levels in my system and a depletion of magnesium, causing all sorts of issues, predominantly Chronic Fatigue Syndrome; (poor concentration, confusion, fatigue, aches and pains, low mood, poor memory etc.)

    I have as a result begun a mercury detox program, consisting of Activated Charcoal, Chlorella, Coriander, Garlic, and IMD (Intestinal Metals Detox from Quicksilver Scientific, Vitamin C and Magnesium supplements. A major reform in my diet, where sugar and caffeine has been completely taken out and lots of Broccoli and Kale have been introduced as well.

    I will obtain another Hair Analysis report in 3 month’s time and see what changes have taken place. Overall a helpful detailed service that no doctor on the NHS has so far picked up in my 13 years of a downward spiral. Crazy!

    Insightful and informative with exceptional aftercare and advice. A thorough and supportive service. For me the NHS was simply unwilling to explore the connection of heavy metals with neurological disorders and you really do have to take matters into your own hands if this is an Avenue you want to explore. In my case I considered other tests such as a comprehensive microbiome gut analysis and was told by the private doctor who arranges the tests that these would not be accurate on children under 3 as their gut does not stabilise until that age and the results would be compared to that of a adults so would bring up red flags that simply weren’t there. She advised for me the best private test I could pay for was a comprehensive hair analyst. It is relatively inexpensive and has been well worth it in my case unearthing findings I would of never of known otherwise. My own separate research on the back of the hair report leads me to believe Mercury is the root problem. However, if you get a Hair result you find particularly alarming don’t expect the NHS to come to the rescue they want every little to do with heavy metals and in particular bio medics but that is only my experience and I wish anyone reading this luck in their own heeling journey.

    Very good test. I have major fatigue and the doctor did some tests and basically said there is no cause and is probably due to daily life! I suspected adrenal fatigue issues and these were confirmed in the hair test. Although I had a blood test a few weeks earlier and there were no signs. I was very surprised to find extremely low levels of boron so I am now taking supplements. I found the ratios interesting and liked the suggested diet. I have ordered the tablets suggested, so I hope to improve within the next 6 months. My husband is now going to do the test too.

    I received my results back approximately 2 weeks after making my submission along with information on foods to avoid and foods to take together with personalised supplements to suit my needs.

    The main reason I took this test was to check my calcium, magnesium ratio, however I learned so much more, i.e. I have fast metabolism type 2, with sympathetic dominance. After checking on the internet what this actually means, it seems I am in the “flight or fight” mode, which possibly explains my high blood pressure and why I have severe ‘white coat syndrome’ when having my BP checked at the Doctor’s office. The article I read did mention that people with this type of metabolism usually have high blood pressure.

    I am now into the 6th week of my programme and new diet, and I can honestly say I have more energy as well as being able to go through the whole day without catnapping. Furthermore, I have lost weight – way hay!

    For anyone concerned about their health the HMAT should be their first move. For others who have no health issues, the HMAT should be treated as an MOT for the body.

    The other benefit of this test and recommended diet for me is monetary – I am no longer groping in the dark spending large amounts of money on useless supplements, which were probably doing me more harm than good.

    Finally, I really must mention the aftercare service I have received from Linda and the Nutritionist, which has been wonderful. I have tested their patience with my awkward questions, which they have answered fully and with kindness. Thank you girls.

    I did the hair analysis for my entire family (youngest 3), which was interesting as there were some common denominators. It was nice to know that all our toxicity levels were very low. We are all requiring more magnesium but that did not surprise me. However, my mineral ratios were all out but one, which I was surprised at. It was very informative and we will retest again after addressing all the issues. Also my homeopath found the results very helpful to refine our remedies and tissue salts. Many Thanks.

    Absolutely excellent
    I’ve been going to the doctors for years with various ailments to no avail… these results literally gave me all my answers. I haven’t bought the supplements yet as I’m currently doing mitochondrial therapy but I now feel empowered by knowing what’s going on in my body… also avoiding compounding some other issues… I was about to start taking vitamin c powder and then realised the brand is bought has calcium in it, my readings say I already have very high calcium and so I could have made my issues worse. It mentioned that high calcium had depleted my magnesium levels and all of the explanations of what the charts mean was very detailed and such an eye opener.
    I’m literally telling anyone who will listen to get this hair analysis done…. stop getting prescriptions for symptoms the doctors don’t understand and deal with the core issues that GP’s have little or no training in!!!

    I’m quite a healthy 20 years old but decided to get a mineralstate test done. I recommend one every now and again. It’s the ‘MOT’ for the body in my opinion!

    Turns out, I’m very acutely arsenic toxic.
    With this knowledge, it finally explains why I have headaches often. Now that I know my toxin load, I can resolve it very easily and quickly.

    Linda is helpful as she also gives you tips and advice on just about anything you ask her, but keep questions short and simple!

    She’s clever, educated and MOST IMPORTANTLY; she makes sense.

    Other health workers make no sense at ALL!
    This has saved me from going to the useless GP’s that are horribly underfunded near where I live again and again only to get disappointed with each visit.

    There’s no wealth like health so longevity is the most valued thing on Earth.
    Without it, you’re just a husk of a shell of the person you could be.
    Do you want to become the best version of yourself possible? Get a mineralstate test! You’ll be surprised at the results.

    I will be back in a few months’ time to write another review on if taking supplements and peptides whilst changing lift style choices can restore my mineralstate to a healthy level once again!

    Really impressed. Have had 2 tests now so can tell that it definitely gives a true picture of what’s going on. Calcium was mega high on the first test so I stopped taking high d3 supplements and it’s now gone to a normal level. Stopped using stick deodorant and my aluminium levels have pretty much disappeared. Will be continuing with the tests every 6 months.

    Very impressed with every aspect of this. I have been ill for years and have tried so many things, to no avail. GP has diagnosed Chronic Fatigue but says there is nothing he can do. GP also says my thyroid blood test results are normal but this confirmed my DIY diagnosis of thyroid and adrenal problems due to prolonged stress. I have not tried the recommended supplements as I am vegetarian and also I had already started Iodine Protocol.
    Thanks for great service, Linda!

    Great communication. Initially I submitted insufficient amount of hair and received polite response to send more hair. After resubmission, the response came within one week.

    The analysis is very elaborate with specific directions/guidelines, worth even if just for education purpose. I really appreciate this service. Thank you

    Great service and after care, the results are given via a report but I rang and asked for further clarification and Linda was happy to help I also emailed and the response was quick and efficient. I will proceed with the diet recommendations and vitamins recommended.

    Very interesting set of results… if you feel you are getting nowhere with doctors and suffering then this is definitely money well spent. I had already changed to a low carb, very low sugar diet whilst waiting on results (lost 1 st in 5 weeks)… increased my magnesium and have taken on board all what was written in report and hope i can get the high manganese levels down… will definitely be retesting in about 5 months. Very quick to help with your questions. Thank you

    I ordered the hair test in conjunction with some gut tests to try to get to the bottom of a long-standing anxiety condition. I was also concerned I might have high levels of toxic metals. My hair test analysis showed that there was an imbalance of calcium/magnesium in my body. I was lacking enough magnesium, a fundamental mineral in the ability to destress. My adrenals were also found to be tired out. Fortunately, my toxic metal levels were fine. The aftercare service was excellent and I now feel I have valuable information and supplement support to aid me on my path to wellness ☺ Sincere thanks!

    Excellent value for money and very quick responses if there are any queries. My wife and I did the test and then decided to make the changes it recommended and we brought all the supplements our tests were completely different which made meal planning even more difficult but we decided there was no point having the test done and then not bothering to make the changes! The first 6 days were the hardest and seemed to be relentless and it felt like I had been on the new regime for weeks… however, it gets easier. We are now on week 3. I am not hungry all the time nor food focused (I was previously) my cravings have pretty much disappeared (I used to get terrible sugar cravings) and my bloating has gone down so my wedding ring is back on (I have been unable to wear it for about 7 months). After just 3 weeks, I think this is brilliant and I know it will get even better as such early days. Without the test there is absolutely no way I could have made this switch in my eating habits. As vegetarians it has been difficult and I think it would be useful to have a linked nutritionist who understands the hair test results and can advise and help with meal planning etc. (as an additional service)

    All the info made perfect sense and was well explained. I also found it very interesting to have a chart that compares your key markers to those from ‘healthy’ people.
    I would definitely recommend this test to anyone who wants to improve his or her well-being. The report has given me great peace of mind, a concrete action plan and hope that after years of putting up with low immunity, depression and sleep problems I might finally get back to feeling myself again = priceless!

I had questions about various dietary aspects of the report and Linda was on hand to answer them. After just a week of following the diet and taking the supplements I am already sleeping better. I am a chronic insomniac of some 25 years. I have been given hope! I can thoroughly recommend anybody to take this hair mineral test.

    I’ve had two hair mineral tests done and followed a supplement programme for five months, and now I’m having a revised supplementation programme. My sky high arsenic levels are three quarters down and It seems that minerals are about to be balanced and my body having less of a toxic burden. Their supplements are not expensive and their communication is helpful. I will recommend Mineralstate highly.

    Purchasing this hair analysis test was the best £69 I have ever spent. I had silicone implants removed a couple of months ago, due to them rupturing – many years ago. Consequently, I have silicone poisoning my whole body, so I need to detox. This hair test has shown me all the things that have been causing my ill health for 19 years – I wish I’d had the test done years ago. It has brought many things to light, and now I am able to eliminate or add various foods to my detoxing diet. I thought I was eating healthily, but now I realise that some of the food I eat is actually adding to my ill health, so they can be eliminated immediately! My sister is now going to have a hair test too, and I keep spreading the word to all of my family and friends as I think that everyone with any health issues should try the test and see what works for them. Thank you SO much Linda for your help and support. I will definitely have a follow-up test in a few months to make sure my diet changes have been worthwhile. Good luck everyone, I hope your health issues end very soon.

    I have had other hair tests for intolerances, which were very detailed. I found this test to be the same – good amount of detail with user-friendly explanations. I am keen to start the course of supplements, but have to check with my doctor first. I was relieved that I did not have mercury poisoning – worried as I grew up with a mouth full of mercury fillings. A colleague did the test at the same time as I did and our results differed, which is what I was expecting.

    This was the best £69.00 I have ever spent. The results of my hair analysis were excellent and very helpful to me. I had ruptured implants removed and had suffered with 19 years of ill health due to the ruptures. The ruptures were only discovered this year. I have been told that I need to detox to get my life back and my health back in order too. So the hair test is incredibly valuable to my healing process. I now know which metals are in my body and where my imbalances are, and am taking the proper supplements to eradicate all the bad metals in my body, causing all the illness and hair loss, weight gain and numerous things. Linda is superb and she adds the professional and personal touch to the results etc. I will definitely have a second test in a few months to see what has happened now I am eating the right food and taking the supplements I so desperately needed. I would recommend mineralstate to everyone as its 100% perfect in every way.

    My wife and I suspect that our two year old son has trouble absorbing certain nutrients. There are many possible causes but the hair analysis test has been a superb way of identifying potential issues in his diet and enables us to make informed decisions.

    The results provide a clear overview of mineral and vitamin levels, in addition to assessing if there are any harmful toxic metals. It’s a fantastic service and I wholeheartedly recommend the test to those that are tired of guessing or want to dig a little deeper.

    As I am now taking responsibility for achieving health and no longer leaving it to the medical model who do their best, but are not set up for health prevention or improvement. I was recommended to do a hair mineral analysis as a good place to start. It was a very easy process to do and a fast and efficient service. I was very pleased to find out that my toxic elements were in the reference range and find out my metabolic type, which mentioned my sweet cravings, which was interesting. Once I had received my report, Linda was also very helpful in answering a question of understanding of the why of something on the recommendations given. I will do a further review when I have ordered the recommended supplements and retested. Many thanks Jill

    Great value for money. The toxic metals levels are a great bonus, I had been suspecting that I have a high level of toxic metals in my body, just a hunch and a general feeling of fatigue. The level of tin turned out to be elevated, not lethal but high enough to produce these inconclusive symptoms, which to doctors make no sense at all. Fortunately, I now know, thanks to this test. Great report, everything explained thoroughly along with proposed, special, dietary guidelines. With these, I now have a chance of significantly improving my health and general wellbeing.

    Life changing! I’m a professional athlete and have been unable to compete for the last 11 months due to unexplained ill health. Western medicine had no answers, I was falling into deep depression, and my health was progressively getting worst. I had every test under the sun through the NHS to no avail, looked into hair mineral analysis and thought might as well give it a try since following mineral states nutritional advice and supplementation I am on the road to recovery and its only been 3 weeks. Adrenals and parasympathetic system are on the mend! I’ve leaned out, look great, and I am slowly back at training and competing again October.
