We take the science of hair mineral analysis and mineral balancing seriously. Not only are we extremely discerning about the lab we partner with to do your hair testing, we have combed the scientific literature to back up all our claims. We also make it a point to subscribe to and read the best journals to stay up to date on all the latest discoveries in mineral balancing.
Analytical Research Laboratories is government accredited with 45+ years’ experience. Their specific procedures ensure accuracy of the hair test within 3%. In America, hair mineral analysis laboratories are inspected annually by the US Dept of Health and Human Services, Health Care Financing Administration, and the Division of Health Standards and Quality. An operating license is issued only if personnel and procedures meet their standards.
One of the most critical differences between Analytical Research Labs and other commercial hair testing labs in the US and around the world are that they do not wash the hair with powerful solvents and detergents once the hair sample is collected. This critical difference is what sets them apart from all the other labs in operation. The reason for this is that the powerful detergents/solvents can wash out the water-soluble elements and skew their readings. This is critically important because these are the elements that control most of our metabolism.
The chasm between what is in the clinical research and what the public knows about minerals and mineral balancing is vast. We want to bridge this gap so people can finally understand the power of mineral balancing. We have done this by curating a list of what we believe is some of the best research available out there from the different fields we draw upon. There are also multiple journals we recommend for people who wish to stay up to date on the latest research in the field of minerals and trace elements.
