Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) Lab Testing


HTMA is a screening test measuring the mineral content of the hair to reveal what is occurring within the cell at the time of hair growth and development. Per Trace Elements:

“Minerals interact not only with each other but also with vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates and fats. Minerals influence each of these factors, and they, in turn, influence mineral status. Minerals act as enzyme activators, and vitamins are synergistic to minerals as coenzymes. It is extremely rare that a mineral disturbance develops without a corresponding disturbance in the synergistic vitamin(s). It is also rare for a disturbance in the utilization or activity of a vitamin to occur without affecting a synergistic mineral(s).”
