Mineral Deficiency May Raise the Risk of Illness – Undergo OligoScan for Healthier Future


Vitamin and mineral deficiencies might be the cause of several diseases. Vitamin A is associated with our vision. Vitamin B1 deficiency leads to Beriberi (numbness in the hands and feet), while a lack of vitamin B2 may cause a canker sore. Low levels of iron in the body might result in anemia. A phosphorus deficiency could cause bladder stones, and if a patient has a goiter, it might result from iodine deficiency.   

Apart from these, high levels of heavy metals in the body, such as aluminum, arsenic, mercury, lead, and cadmium which are commonly-found chemicals in everyday life, may cause fatigue, disorientation, and sluggishness.

Currently, a cutting-edge technology called “OligoScan” is used to assess the concentration of heavy metals and minerals in the body. The device is held over 4 points of the palm to record the wavelengths of minerals in the tissues. OligoScan indicates:

  • Levels of 15 types of heavy metals in the body 
  • Levels of 21 types of minerals in the body
  • Levels of essential vitamins in the body

OligoScan screening test takes around 2-3 minutes. It is a painless and non-invasive method done without a blood specimen. The test gives instant results and is more precise than a standard blood test as it has an in-depth measuring system.
