Vitamin D Test
Our simple-to-use finger-prick blood test determines your current Vitamin D levels and can be done in your home. Learning your Vitamin D levels allows you to make the necessary diet, lifestyle or supplement changes to improve your health. The test measures vitamin D2 and D3 to give your current Vitamin D levels (25 OH) using just a few drops of dried blood.
Vitamin D plays a vital role in the body. Unfortunately, few foods naturally contain Vitamin D, most of which have only very low amounts. It is also a challenge to get the required vitamin D levels through sunlight. It’s therefore unsurprising that deficiencies and sub-optimal levels are common.
